Monkey, Hertfordshire Internet nut!

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Looks funky, modern and is very compact. No external power needed.
Bad points:
Needed two USB's as couldn't run reliably on one on my desktop. I wanted this as a portable back up for my CD's but it ain't having it.
Stupid gimmicky lights.
Doesn't work!

Repeatedly gave delayed write errors and froze my desktop requiring a reboot. After two days, took it back - not fit for purpose. I have 4.5TB of storage including 5 3.5" external HDD's and have never had this problem before. Bought a standard 3.5" Iomega external drive and it's happily doing what I want. This is probably ok for a few pics and an album but throw a 400GB+ file with 5550+ sub-folders at it and it just can't cope. Pity as it looks great but for data hogs like myself it's complete rubbish. Would not recommend. Fancy junk!
