CAS, Stourbridge

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
After careful research chose My Book PRO because in terms of capacity, Firewire connections, form/style it seemed good value for money. Using Mac Disk Utility it was remarkably easy - though a bit time consuming - to erase disk and set up two 250 GB partitions for my iMac, one serving as 'Time Machine' back-up. So far, My Book, Leopard and Mac have all worked without a hitch. More than happy.
Bad points:
My Book is slightly noisy as many external HDs are but nothing too obtrusive. Given the general silence of the iMac it could just be that any peripheral would be noticeable.
