Jim, Reading IT Professional

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Everythng except the user interface in the WD Back up software
Bad points:
WD Back up software is so slow to select and unslect folders and files, with no egg timer to telll you it is actually doing anythng. It is impossible to resist selecting again before the first select has finished, which will get you in a mess.

Good points:
Does what it says, small portable and ok volume. Plugs in to the back of my NAS box as part of a pair to give offsite backup. Really like no power cable required.
