John, Plymouth Professional IT technician

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Large Capacity, very quiet in operation
Bad points:
It will seem slow if you are used to USB 3.0 (I'm not - my motherboard does not support such new fangled technology!) performs as expected of a USB 2.0 drive. No complaints at all.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic capacity. Very quiet and cool operation. Neat form factor. It sits on my desk and you hardly notice it.
Bad points:
I have had a couple (out of eight) fail within a year. They were replaced under warranty but it was a hassle.

Michael, Crawley Part time IT fixer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Reliable - I've been using a pair of the 2TB version of these drives for over a year now, in a commercial application with daily use. They've been faultless, so no reason to not expect the same from these 3TB drives.
Stylish in black, and good value compared to other brands.

Greg, Cirencester

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fast, well priced and plenty of space
Bad points:
Doesn't look as "cool" as other drives out there - but function over form is not a bad thing really :-)
