Most helpful reviews

James, Wantage Environmental scientist

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Seems to backup ok.
Bad points:
It would be fine if the drive didn't start as my boot up disk, it still does it regardless of the order you set up in the BIOS menu so I have to switch my computer on with it unplugged and then plug it in after I see that windows is starting up so I know my C drive is the boot up disk.
Another problem is that because of the file type, it's not possible to save very long directories

Tony, Clacton-on-Sea

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I wanted a simple to use, reliable back up system with a reasonable capacity. The 500gb book gave me this. It was easy to set up and forget. Mine is set to fully back up once a week, though any file can be backed up at any time with a click of the mouse. So far, I can't fault it.
Bad points:
Haven't found any!
