James, Electrical/Mechanical Engineer.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Quick, Fast and sleek.
Bad points:
If I was to be picky....
Case is a little on the thin side but has not broken...
My USB 3.0 cable had a bent pin so only worked at USB 2.0 speeds. I bought a longer USB 3.0 CABLE and all is well.

(MYTH BUSTER...LONGER USB CABLES DO NOT RESULT IN SLOWER SPEEDS AND VOLTAGE DROPS, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE 10+M FOR THIS TO HAPPEN!)
