Daryl, Bury St Edmunds Electrical and Electronics Engineer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
A very well constructed HDD, looks sleek and sexy in black for a good down to earth price, I spent ages trying to find an HDD that I thought was worth the money..... and now I have.
Bad points:
You cannot get rid of the automatic Backup software of the HDD, it is somehow intergrated. This can be usefull depending on the application you are using it for but a small annoyance for myself though.... still value for money though.

Courtney, Leicester

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The capacity is the main reason for buying this product.
The price pushed me to making the purchase as it was too good to resist.
It is small in size and very portable, and easily stored. Although it does require the use of a mains adapter.
Bad points:
I had to convert it to FAT32 format from NTFS and it took a very long time to do so, I changed to this format as I required the drive to connect to my PS3 and it only recognises FAT32 unfortunately.
