Most helpful reviews

Jack, Colwyn Bay Silver surfer and artist

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Once set up it can be left to back-up in the background without using too much power from the system or too many resources from the software.
Bad points:
With no installation disc, and no printed users manual, it isn't the easiest to set up correctly. Once the hardware is connected, then the user manual is accessible, telling you how to connect and set up the drive.

Brian, Watchfield

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent backup for files, photos etc. After installing WD smartware sit back and forget all about it.
Bad points:
Best to turn it off by pressing "safe to remove hardware" before switching computer off then unplug the lead at the back. If the lead is left in, sometimes the computer detects the lead but waits while looking for hardware after switching on.
