George, Newcastle Upon Tyne

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
The MyBook Unit itself works fine using windows own backup software
Bad points:
The backup software is unreliable, after set up it operated well but then stopped seeing the MyBook files, so you cannot restore any files, although it continues to back up on its shedule.
After resetting everything and starting from scratch, withing days it stops seeing the MyBook unit so I removed the software and used Windows backup and drive image software

Paul, Nottingham

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A bit early to talk about reliability but it does exactly what I purchased it for, back up and access to my home computer files from anywhere using netbook or smart phone.
Bad points:
Initial set up for the various remote access devices was a bit tedious but I got there eventually, maybe I should have used the online assistance?
