Most helpful reviews

Gavin, Ipswich Photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Nice and small design. Integrates well onto any desk. Massive capacity. Pretty fast.
Bad points:
Slightly noisy, nothing to worry about buy could distract quiet users. Runs a little warm but only with heavy constant use. Supplied USB and power cables far too short for my liking limits placement options.

Paddy, Whitby computing enthusiast and professional

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Cheapest fast disk external 4TB disk
Seems to work fine - not owned it long enough to judge its actual reliability
Bad points:
It's a massive enclosure, presumably for cooling reasons, but REALLY, in this day and age? it's nearly twice as big as it needs to be. It's almost as big as the PC I have it plugged into.

Mark, Cmputer Services Business owner

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent value for money. Easy to install.
Bad points:
The backup to cloud failed to complete so gave up in the end. So did the local backup using the software supplied. Just used windows backup instead.
