Denise, Stoke-on-Trent I like gadgets!!

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
All of the above are good points - it does the job it was purchased for and more when the software is downloaded from their website, with a little more usage I am sure that I will find it to be a very useful addition to my office.
Bad points:
When travelling and I have an ipod shuffel plugged into my laptop the hard drive is not recognised and I cannot gain access unless I unplug the ipod!

Lisa, Bristol Tech Junkie

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
It's a great compact little size and looks great. I haven't been using it for very long so it's a bit too soon to judge it's reliability. I like that you can password protect it (although you can just go through mycomputer and still access the files) and syn it with your computer.
Bad points:
It's really noisy! That's the one thing so far about it that has made me nearly change it/send it back! It just whirls/whines all the time and it doesn't sound good!

Confirmed purchaser

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
160 GB! (Computer has less than 10).Plug in and away you go.Our computer doesn't have 2.0 usb facility and still works well.
Bad points:
Maybe I should have formatted it.(If I knew exactly what that was or how to do it).There's a lot of scrolling about sometimes to find files.Also be careful when transferring existing files to the Passport-some don't work so well-e.g.Adobe reader.
