Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Works like a charm and backing up my data on my windows 8 laptop was quick and easy, worked no problem for playing movies on my TV through the USB port. Also worked a treat on my old windows xp system straight out the box. Highly recommend this to anyone. Comes packaged with a high speed usb 3.0 cable but can also be used with a smartphone cable (usb 2.0) I use this when out and about as it saves the need to carry the cable with me.

Cassidy,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The drive is fast and quiet, and has so far performed without any hiccups, despite the rather flimsy cable.
Bad points:
The bundled cable is quite frankly naff, and will break its connection to the computer if you move it too much. It's easily replaced, though, and despite these disconnections the drive hasn't lost any data, which is fairly impressive in itself.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Small and neat, USB 3 which is much faster than USB 2, no power supply required.
Usb 3 cable is a different type from the statndard usb cable, the one provided is to small and needs to be longer I had to buy another.
I have only had this device for about three weeks so my catagory ratings are mostly average.if asked to do this survey in about 6 months from now I probably could give a more honest opinion
Bad points:
Supplied USB cable is to short for my liking so I had to buy another one which is a special type also. The usb socket is a different design from the usual USB 2.
