This product is a bit of a double edged sword. The down side is that my second one of these has just failed after returning my orgional to the supplier after a Harddrive failure, the same has just happened. the Drive is quite bulky, however this does not have much on an impact.

The plus points. Everything you need comes in the box, power supply usb cables extra. Its is very stright forward to use, plug all the relavet cables in, switch it on and it is found as an external storage device easily. I have partitioned mine 50/50 with NTFS and FAT32, so i can keep very large work files and use it with my PS3. The formatting process was no different to any other Harddrive.

It is relativly quite, runs fairly cool and generally gives good transfer speeds. there have never been any bad sectors on either drive, when i have run scandisk.

The only problems i have unfortunatly have been a total cease of usage, on the first occasion the harddrive itself was fine and i was able to recover all the data. I might have been unlucky with the one i have got.

If the reliablity was sorted out it would be 5 stars, however i have time and money as a result of poor reilability
