For me the fact this drive does not come with 'free' software that I do not want is an advantage. Lets face it free software isn't free, the cost is just hidden. So I've not paid for software I don't want and I have not had to delete anything. First impressions are the disk very light and performs well. In comparison to other external drives I have (Iomega and Lacie) this one is practically silent in operation. The reason why my overall product rating is a 4 not a 5 is because the USB cable is a Micro B 3.0 so I have yet another cable type to contend with and the supplied cable, at only 18 inches in length, is too short. I've only had the product one day so am unable to give any feedback on reliability.

  • Overall 4*
  • Ease of use 5*
  • Value for money 5*
