Very good

  • Summary: Compact design and soft-look exterior are great plus it works really well. The USB connector length is just a little too short in my view, better if it was longer and wrapped into the long side of the device. That said, it is compact and highly portably so I remain pleased with my purchase, but hope they make a few improvements before I need another one.

  • Summary: got given another make for xmas, broke within a week. Had an old one of these, and didn't really like the attachment, but I really don't mind anymore, because it's very reliable and robust.

Great piece of kit

  • 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.

Compact and Convenient Data Storage

  • Summary: I needed a back up hard drive but did not need vast capacity so for less than 1Tb, this was economical and ideal for my needs. It was delivered promptly and the price was keen. Great!

  • 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.

Died after five months

  • Summary: It was used very gently (only lived in my office) and it made a clicking noise and died after about five months of use. Definitely made a mistake choosing this one.
