Martin, Hemel Hempstead

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Does what it is supposed to do, would recommend.
Bad points:
They don't tell you that it comes with a Sata data lead but not an LP4 Male to SATA Power Adapter cable, so I bought a data lead with it which I didn't need, but not a power cable, which was very annoying.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Satisfied with the product. Right price for the product.
Bad points:
Chapter thumbnails text are not editable. Icons and details are very similiar in some areas which is confusing, sometimes I had to click back and click again several times to find the correct program. So softwear could have more neat and less icon with better details for easy access to right program.
