Most helpful reviews

Olly, York IT Admin

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very quick performance when used with e-SATA, USB isn't bad either. BEWARE: This is a RAID 0 device, it mentions it once in the text and is easily missed, however, it can be re-configured via the software on the CD to RAID 1, but the software only worked on USB, e-SATA just hung.
Bad points:
Documentation is lacking. No mention is made of the ability to change between RAID 0 and RAID 1. Hardware seems fine so far.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very good so far using the esata connection. No experience of the others. The drive is very fast once it is set up.
I have not rated reliability because I have only had it for a short time.I have had no failures so far.
Bad points:
Does not come ready for windows. I had some problems getting it ready for W7. Probably I was impatient and I interrupted one operation while I was setting up. While formatting for windows start the process and leave it to it for an hour or so.
