Graeme, Bishops Stortford

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Worked straight out the box with minimal set up.
Can access it from multiple devices around the house and remotely as well.
Seems to do a background back up of my main pc all the time
Bad points:
Worked well out of the box, which meant I didn't bother to read the manual, which means that there are probably more things it could be doing that I don't know about!
