John, Devon Lecturer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to fit and install; much quieter than the one it replaces; seems to be doing its job, though it hasn't been running long.
Bad points:
Though quieter than the one it replaced (Seagate), there is still some noise. This may be the effect of two hard drives setting up sound sound pattern.
(It might help some to make clear that a Sata lead would be needed for anyone who was adding rather than replacing a drive.)

Mohammed, Leeds IT Professional

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
It's a hard-drive, does what it says on the tin.good for backup. I would invest a little more money and buy a solid state drive and install windows and other programs I use (like games) onto the SSD and use this as a back up, I would not recommend using it as a main-hardrive its just too slow.
Bad points:
Slow, 5,700rpm, not worth using as a boot drive, unless you have an old computer.

Philip, Hadleigh, Essex Retired

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Adds 500Gb of hard drive storage. Installation fairly easy when you know how. Quiet, probably reliable, same make as C: drive. I have used it for all the photo files. Saves 50Gb of space on C: drive.
Bad points:
Not bad points really. You need to enable the SATA port from the Setup screen. Probably obvious to most but it took a while for the penny to drop. Then right clip on the drive and Manage it. Formatting took about an hour.
