Mike, Surrey Aged Technology enthusiast

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very small for 2TB and quiet.
Easy to connect to a laptop.
USB3, quick but I haven't tested it, its faster than all my other drives.
Easy to pack and take with you.
Recommended.
I liked it so much I bought another.
Bad points:
Lead is not long enough for a desktop unless its on the top of the desk so you need to buy a longer cable.
Not really the drives fault but the plug/socket on the drive has two different sized sections so you need to look at it when connecting to ensure the polarity is correct. But that's all I can think of.

Ginge, Chinnor

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Plug & play. Worked straight out of the box. It's quiet and fairly quick (roughly 1 Gb of data transferred per minute through my USB ports)
Silver colour matches my laptop.
Bad points:
None as yet but as I haven't really used it very much I cannot comment on reliability over the longer term.
If I'm being really picky the cable is quite short.
Overall a good buy.
