John, London Film industry proffessional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Film industry standard drives. The drive actually uses the full bandwidth of their connection types (eg. On a recent job I got the Firewire 800 port to maintain a sustained transfer rate for large multi GB video files of about 60-80MB/s and about 80+MB/s for Esata - spiking over 100MB/s). So these are about the best I could get for my job. Except of course for the G-Raid versions....but their price is a fair bit higher. These G-drives were suprisingly cheap given the issues over in Asia just now.
Bad points:
I guess I could say their weight and bulk, but actually those are both quite reassuring.

Ralph, Ferndown Casual computer user

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
It's Silver and matches my Mac :-)
It had the capacity I wanted and the Interface ports I also wanted (Firewire 800 mainly) as my new Mac does not have Firewire 400 and I wanted a Bootable external Drive - for which Firewire offers a simpler solution.
Bad points:
Although Hitachi are a well known Brand I know them less regarding Hard Drives.
