Most helpful reviews

Bernard, Daventry Satisfied customer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Works exactly as intended.
Bad points:
Lower price always welcome - would buy another if at a good price.

When updating changed files, can I get a program that would only update those files that had changes since the last update, rather than updating the whole lot which takes over 3 hours to accomplish.

Stephen, Winchester

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This device appears to be well made, it functioned correctly when connected via the supplied USB cable without any problem and it does the job admirably, for a reasonable price. (I use it for regular backups) Long term reliability can be a problem for this type of drive, but it's too early to report on that aspect.
Bad points:
Nothing to criticise as yet.

Marc, Glasgow

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Small drive. Nice polished metal case. LED to indicate data transfer is on an edge of the device so is easily visible.
Very quiet when in use. Acceptable data transfer speed for a USB 2 device.
Powered directly from the usb cable. No additional power supply unit needed.
Bad points:
The connector is not a standard usb. This will make it more awkward to get a replacement if necessary.
The cable has 2 usb plugs at one end. This is if the device providing power does not supply enough from 1 usb socket. Timewaster when you plug in the power only usb.
