Summary: I've had this running for quite some time now and it is still providing a nice level of backup security for me. Technology has moved on and I have moved to a NAS device but still use this for additional offline backups.
Summary: easy to set up and use, sits comfortably on top of my home desk top pc and I can take it with me and plug into another pc at work without any hassle, if you need a large capacity external hard drive this is ideal.
Summary: My second purchase works for me ...last in stock ...thanks...delivery very quick...Notice a lot of people not happy with on off switch position ...but for me its fine for my 1000s of photographs ..
Summary: I've been using this now for nearly a year and it sits in the corner and does what it's told! It's fairly quiet and does the job. Apparently the light on the front will go red when a hard drive has failed, which is handy because otherwise you'd never know. No hard drive failures to date, very pleased with it. There's a switch on the back to pick a raid/non-raid setting, and you don't need any software to run it.
Summary: A great piece of kit, ideal for backing up system files, movies etc. Very easy to use and comes complete with back up software and a suspend mode. This mode is very important as my pc, running Win 7 Ultimate, can take for ever to read the hd. I think it's better to only turn the drive on when you need to use it and not leave it running in the background. Other than that a 1st class piece of hardware.
