Cath, South Shropshire

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It is definitely a value for money item.
Bad points:
My only comment is that I find it a little slow to access ....... but really, it's doing a grand job keeping data safe - if a wise old man was holding all the info in his head, I'm sure he'd be a little slow to access just one piece of info. Generally, I'm very pleased and it has solved my problems. It's small, neat, and can sit out of the way.
