Ray,

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
It is compact and neat looking
Bad points:
The life studio software is useless. I e mailed life studio 5 times to ask something. They have not bothered to reply to any of my e mails. I am going to format the hard drive to delete it all. The external hard drive has no on/off switch. You have to turn it on and off from the socket, which means having to climb under your desk to turn it on/off. Big and obvios design fault

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Its holds a lot of storage, and looks very stylish.
Bad points:
However it must be plugged into a plug socket before it can be switched on, which isn't convenient all the time, and is quite bulky.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Massive space,
Nice look,
'Mykey' feature works really well & really useful,
Software that comes with it is useful.
Bad points:
Always seems to be doing something, not that bad, but can get annoying after a while,
on the surface i got it on while it is doing something, you can hear a regular thudding every 1/2 seconds

Anthony, London

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
looks smart and has a large capacity
Bad points:
I simply required a storage device to store files. This item stores the files in an "easy to use" format and is visually easy to access but is a pain in the backside if you want to take the information somewhere else and upload the data on a computer without the hitachi software, which was the purpose of buying it.

This reminds me. I dod not receive and invoice for the three hard drives and I need it because i want to return the one that is unopened. Please can I have a copy asap.
