Freecom USB Toughdrive

Alessandro, ReviewStream

  • Excerpt: This is a great USB storage device, it not only offers a stunning memory of 80GB but it is also covered in a silicon membrane as a shock absorber. Unlike most other storage devices this one can drop from the height of your pocket/briefcase and it won’t break.

Tougher and more stable than any LaCie!!

rachelskymarket, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • Summary: I have been using these for 2 years and so far not one single problem. They really are tough, unlike the LaCie kind that have let me down many and oft. They are small and fast with no cables to remember, I use them for HD film editing and back ups, very pleased and VFM.

Good value!

Carol Thomas, Amazon

  • Summary: Have had this external hard drive for a while now - found the instructions not so user friendly as I first thought. Took me a while to set it up because I was worried I was going to lose my data. It was a bit hard to understand the instructions - I couldn't just plug in and then drag my files across to back up. However, I would still buy it again now I know how to use it and it does hold a lot of data. Good value!

Great, easy to use, very robust, hard drive.

M Dunn, Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Tough Drives are great hard drives, easy to use, and robust. This is my fourth - the others are all still in use! Keep running out of space, this last one is 1TB. I myself don't bother with the password software, I just plug it in and play, I find that simpler as I don't travel much about with mine. I have not had any trouble with them in all the years I have used them. I only manually back up, don't use any automatic back up software, not adventurous enough...

great product except the connection

Karin Wilson, Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: The product is good and quick and sturdy, the only draw back is the connection you do need an extension lead and I can imagine used without it would soon break. The connection is solid not very flexible only 3 inches most pcs usb drives are on the front or back and without a extension lead you need to sit the drive on something to plug it in.

  • Summary: This is a great piece of kit, works fantastically and transfers information very fast. The case seems very tough, defiantly worth the money!

  • Summary: This is a top buy if you like to carry small portable hard drives around without the weight, easy to fit anywhere strong casing as well so no risk of it getting damage in anyway.

Bit of a standard

Mark Ayliffe, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: I've used these drives at work and home for many years now. I think we've pensioned off one a little early due to it getting a bit unreliable after about 5 years, but all the others are still going strong after many years of weekly backup service. My wife also uses one to ferry documents and data back & forth to school.

Suddenly stopped working after a year

Alan, Amazon
27 April 2014
  • Summary: Kept it in a drawer for most of the time and used it as a backup. The light still comes on but isn't recognised by any computer or mac. No help from Freecom- they won't replace/fix it if I go to my local computer shop to retrieve my lost information (data recovery costs £hundreds with Freecom and takes weeks).

Very useful, but you need an extension

wrinkled weasel, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: This device is high quality and does what it says without fuss. The drawback is the very short plug, so you will have to get an extension. Don't be put off by this. Freecom is a brand I have used before and they are very good indeed.
