Mark, London Heavy media user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
We use these drives for delivering digital cinema packages (DCPs) and they are perfect for this. They are also cheaper than the same drive from the recognised supplier which is great.
Bad points:
None so far.

Paul, South Yorkshire Casual computer user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This came highly recommended from my company IT guru's and so far, it's done the trick.
Seems to be very reliable and although it wasn't the cheapest, it still represents very good value for money.
Bad points:
None so far. I've only been using it for a few weeks but it's coped with everything I've thrown at it (new OS, software, motherboard etc etc)
