Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It is easily portable and I carry is in my handbag inside it's own carrycase. It is easily the best investment that I have made in recent months and will extend the life of my laptop for another 2-3 years. Thank you.
Bad points:
Uses 3 USB ports on my laptop instead of 2 as I would have preferred.

Valerie, Merseyside

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I was looking for a reliable means of storing work documents, the maxtor plugs straight into the computer and automatically loaded. The device is small enough to carry in a handbag and is reasonably light.
Bad points:
It uses two usb points which is worth considering if you don't have many usb points on your computer. When I first saved documents to the device I had to authorise my computer to allow this. I mention the last point as this involves going into the computer control panel plus a bit of searching to find how to allow this.
