Simple set-up. Easy to use backup software. Easily portable between machines (if not networked).
Bad points:
Some might find the fan a 'little' on the noisy side, but you soon get used to it / cancel it out.

Christopher, Woodbridge Heavy media user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
As ever Seagate provide a great robust external hard disk for backing up all you need.
Bad points:
Explanation on the pros and cons of using backup software that comes with the unit is poor, especially when it comes to considering using the Mac Time Machine. Any ideas you may have of your own, forget it with Time Machine, Mac railroad you into their now myopic suffocating version of life, treating oen like a bit of an idiot. Just get soem great back-up software from any number of other good folk and your in business with your Seagate.

Andy, Stafford IT Professional

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Plug and go. Took minutes to get up and running on my Win 7 PC. Now using it to backup a 3TB internal drive, the supplied software works a treat with scheduled sync running every hour.

It's also quiet and doesn't take up too much space, remember that as it's a desktop drive you need to find a point for the separate power supply.
Bad points:
Nothing yet.
