Summary: Recommended to me by my IT geek friend. It's easy to use and easy to carry. Especially useful if you plan to be quite mobile with it, as it has the tuff exterior in case you drop it. I'm very pleased with it.
Summary: I have several of these Tough Drives in different capacities. Very compact, light and robust - haven't actually tried dropping one but they get carted around in my case on a regular basis. Used extensively for backups and travel - no problems with any of them. The integral connector means there's no cables to lose. Small enough to slip in jacket pocket. Job done. Oh and free delivery still arrived the day after ordering.
Summary: I was recommended this product but I did have to ask for technical help from a friend to set it up as the instructions were not very helpful. Once the shortcut was set up, I am now happy with being able to use it for its purpose.
Summary: Purchsed this item in October (less than 6 months) brought into the whole durable and tough sales pitch!!!!! The USB port snapped off after 5 months trapping my data on a hard drive. Luckily my ICT department removed the hard drive and placed it into a new case and I was able to recover the data. FREECOM refused to refund/repair as I had recoverd my data!!!!!! Avoid.........Avoid.......
Summary: I used a previous model for 6years so I decided to buy new one from Freecom too. I like it a lot especially the fact that i don't need to carry extra usb cable. It's difficult to destroy, I dropped it a couple of times and there's no scratch or any sign of damage. I didn't need more than 500GB so it's great. I definitely recommend it.
