Excellent

ProVery compact, easy to store, very easy to install

ConsHeavier than you'd think.

I bought this stylish hard drive after buying my new computer. I wanted a simple way of transferring all my files from my old pc, to my new one without having to mess about with file transfer programs. I had considered putting my old hard drive into my new pc but as I like to share pictures and...

If you want secure backup, buy something else. Once it got over the 100gig mark, it crashed. Me with a small PC harddrive got this external drive to put all important work that I don't have room for on the computer. You can imagine my delight when I tried to access the data and it wasn't happening. What did cost £150 initially will now cost me an additional £500 in recovery. So if you like playing russian roulette with your important data files, by all means; try this.

ProSmall, simple Installation Quiet

ConsEratic, ets hot. Sometimes doesn't start

I bought this drive Feb 2007, when it was the day's special value on a well known shopping channel. It arrived promptly and out of the box was easy to set up and install. However, to say it has been trouble free would be unwise, as sadly it has shown itself not to be reliable. When I first got it...
