Not as good as it looks, but not bad.
on 15 February 2009
I bought this hard drive partially for storage and part for its looks. Each size drive has a different colour pattern and I thought I'd get each one in the range for different genres (320GB for Avi & mpgs, 250GB for General storage & 160GB for music - I notice now they have a bigger one with a white pattern).
It arrived heavily packaged, though a bit bashed, very well protected (took about 15mins to get through it all and to the device itself).
It does look quite sleek and very portable, but the finish is much more plastic than appears on the photos.
One of the other features I wanted was the lack of need for an adaptor so I could move it around between my home PC, Xbox, laptop or work pc. However, the supplied USB cable is tiny (about 10cm) and it doesn't seem to work through an extension or with a different cable. So with tower cases I have to crawl in behind to attach & remove it.
That said, it seems pretty quick and it does what I need it to do. If it had a longer cable or could use any cable I'd have given it 4 stars and the other star is just for the plastic finish.
All in though pretty good and I may still get the others.
