Laura, Bournemouth I'm very happy!

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It's size, physically but also in terms of capacity, and how easily I can connect it to Time Machine on my Mac, which was my main reason for buying it.
Bad points:
Seemed a bit pricey, but I've been told that it will be very reliable and last a long time so it's probably worth it.
