Good points:
Works simply by USB plug and play with XP & Vista
Bad points:
Has no rubber feet or grips on base. Power supply jack and usb very close together inset in the casing, bit of a fiddle if you have sausages for fingers.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Price compared with other makes is very good.
Storage capacity is obviously exceptional.
It just runs silently on my desk until required, I sometimes forget it’s there until I need it
Easy installation,
Does what the makers say it does without any trouble
I have had mine for four trouble-free months and am very pleased with it
Would recommend this drive to anyone

this hardrive isn't very good for when you want to back up files as you can't locate the files that you've backed up properly because they appear as cryptic folder....not very useful really in regards to that
