5.0 out of 5 stars A simple and great idea...., 12 Jun. 2016

A simple and great idea, if a little expensive.
I use the colour to denote which external hard drives contain certain data.
The additional supply of a short colourful USB3 lead was a nice touch.

WD 3 TB My Passport Ultra Portable External Hard Drive - White
WD 3 TB My Passport Ultra Portable External Hard Drive - White

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 5 April 2016

As you may have guessed these are 3Tb in size, and an increase on the previous model's size of 2Tb.
In fact they look very similar, with the 3Tb models having a more shiny finish.

Technically, they are USB3, and I was able to transfer data between two of these 3Tb models at an average of 100MB/s. This speed goes down of course if you only have USB 2 sockets, and will REALLY crawl if they are USB1.1 from many pre-2000 systems.

As I understand it, they are slightly slower than the 2Tb models. I didn't (subjectively) notice any slowdown unless I was specifically measuring transferring between two of these WD drives.

Finally, I'm sure others will comment and if necessary explain about exFat-GPT being used to allow the hard drives to exceed the 2Tb limit that's been around for years. It MAY mean upgrading any backup software that does not cope with GPT .


Liverpool and Its Canal
Liverpool and Its Canal

Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a great little book., 5 April 2016

This is a great little book. As you can tell from the title it majors on Liverpool - which was just what I wanted. Also be advised that this book is available as 'a second edition'.

This month (April 2016) also sees the release of Mike's excellent book called 'The Leeds and Liverpool Canal'.

If you need more info check out Mike's website which can be found by simply Googling mike clarke canal.

3.0 out of 5 stars This does seem one of the better ones, 15 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Better than the shop ones - mentioning no names of well known supermarket leaders.
IMHO there still seems to be a fundamental design flaw in all of these.. Gradually over time it seems to get an intermittent connection in the two holes of the socket.

However, this does seem one of the better ones. I am 6 months in and no issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a great make for my make of DVD writer in my computer., 15 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works great with my Dell PC.
I still think TDK one of the best makes.

If you are continually having problems at creating DVD's then it might be worth Googling for information about what blank DVD's work well in your particular machine -0 specifically what make and model of DVD is fitted to the comoputer. You may need to look inside to see the markings on the actual case of the DVD unit.

Quite apart from the (usual) DVD+ and DVD- confusion for newbies, do note that some blank DVD's seem to have a better success rate in some machines than others.

So, if you are that way inclined and want to waste some time, check out what is the model and maker of the DVD writer inside your computer, then you can spend a few weeks trying to find out what seems to work best by researching online. Places like Digital Spy or Videohelp forums will get you started.

I found that for my recent 2012 computer, the DVD unit fitted meant that European makes had slightly higher failure rates than Asian produced ones. This may not apply to you. You need to check what unit you have. Even then you are going by other peoples word of mouth...

PS
By the way - some of the makes that others recommended are not available in the UK.
