Oliver, London Filmmaker/ Photographer/ Editor

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Thankfully it runs very very quietly. The software that comes with it is very quick to install and runs in the background. I set mine up for Raid 1 - Mirroring. The 4TB drive instantly reads on my desktop as a 2TB drive, and I am safe in the knowledge that everything I put onto it is being stored in two places, without me having to do anything. I am a filmmaker and it's vital that all my work is double backed up, which this drive does effortlessly. The drive also has two Firewire 800 ports which is great as it means it slots right into my daisy chain system and nothing slows down. Highly recommended for peace of mind when you just have to have your files in two places.
Bad points:
It works out more expensive than it would be to buy two separate WD Firewire 800 2TB drives and sort out a Raid system yourself. I was however willing to pay the slight premium to have all the information in one place and the assurance that the software will take care of it all for me. If you know how to set up drives to mirror each other yourself, then you could look at getting two separate 2TB drives, however this system works perfectly for me, stress free.

Got it as a 'time machine' for Mac backup. Unpacked it, plugged in and away I went. No problems or hitches at all.
