Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I brought this hard drive some time ago and as of yet I have not come across any problems with it. Dispite the shell being plastic it looks nice and smart. It's small which is handy for hiding it away and is easy to carry around. The hard drive itself is so easy to use and straight forward. I decided to go for the 500GB drive as I'm mainly using it to store photos on and considering how many pictures I have put on there so far I have only used a small amount of space! I had no problems with it connecting to my laptop when I first got it and now all I need to do is plug it in and go. I'm glad I went for this and would definately recommend this to anyone wanting a straight forward, easy to use hard drive.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Very pleased with this product, glad I chose it. I very nearly didn't buy it as one of the previous reviews said it was difficult to get the connections in and out. However, I have not had a problem at all so far but I have not had the product very long.
