Scott, Scottish Borders

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is a well designed piece of kit. It feels substantial. The guide on the front to how full the drive is might be a little gimmicky but is reasonably helpful. The fact that it is Mac formatted straight from the box is useful as you can use it straight away as a Time Machine drive rather than wait while it is re-formatted. WD's supplied software seems to be quite handy also.

I haven't performed scientific read and write tests but it seems fast enough and is quieter than my other external drive.
Bad points:
Not really a bad point but this is NOT a portable hard drive. This is meant to live on your desk or on a bookshelf and act as extra storage rather than be moved around with you.
