Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is my first external hard drive so have nothing to compare it against. However, it is reasonably quick (I think). It is nice and compact and can be tucked away. Having its own power cable I am told makes it faster, so that is also good.
Bad points:
Having its own power cable means that I have to share sockets at the mains, (still unsure about putting another extension cable on). On the whole it is fine.
