5.0 out of 5 stars Swish Drive, 14 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a stylish-looking external hard drive, and a sophisticated partner for your MacBook in particular. Although the casing is plastic, it feels substantial and is compact enough to fit in your pocket. Set up on Mac is straightforward, and it runs speedily and quietly. One of the best on the market, and certainly makes the Western Digital & Samsung efforts look pedestrian.


VINTAGE RETRO METAL ICE COLD BEER BOTTLE TOP WALL CLOCK
VINTAGE RETRO METAL ICE COLD BEER BOTTLE TOP WALL CLOCK

4.0 out of 5 stars Timely Piece, 14 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very substantial clock in that it is genuinely made out of rugged metal (yes, just like an over-sized bottle top!) and has an authentic worn look to resemble a timepiece that might have been ticking away for many years in some dusty stateside bar.
At this price (£12), and compared to some similar clocks currently on sale, I'd say opt for this one as you are unlikely to be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Holding up well!, 14 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've only had this product a few days, so it is hopefully too early for any problemsto surface. What I will offer at this stage are observations.
First off, this holder doesn't feel as robust as I perceived it to be. It is pretty versatile in terms of adjusting to all sizes of phone (like a large hair clip stuck on a base) and there's a fair bit of rotation available, but I don't think it will withstand too much use by the larger handsets - such as the iPhone 6 - particularly if they are also held in a protective case. Neither the clip nor the suction base are likely to resist the routine wear and tear due to the weight of these devices for too long.
Whilst this might sound quite negative, I can only say that I hope to be proved wrong!
Update Dec 2015: well, five months in and it remains intact, so I've added another star for staying power!

2.0 out of 5 stars A Lost Case, 14 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case looks ok but doesn't fit as well as similar rival products. As it is a two-piece, this causes the front panel to seem rather insubstantial when opened, as it has a tendency to flop limply about unless completely folded underneath when using the iPad. The device does not fully sink into the base cover either, which makes it feel as if it may drop out at any time. The cut-out for the volume buttons is out of line too, with only one of them partially accessible.
Basically, you get what you pay for - and with that in mind I would recommend you spend a little more for a superior product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly A Hard Case, 7 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very roomy, well-appointed and sturdy rigid case for EHDs and other small devices you want to protect from bumps and bashes. There's ample space inside for the connection lead and even one or two smaller-sized flash drives. Comes supplied with a carry handle and metal attachment clip. Great value and quality.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best for Mac users..., 7 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't doubt that those who gave 4-5* reviews are pleased with this product and its functionality. I have no issue with the build or connectivity of the device. However, I was looking for an EHD that can auto-save on a Mac, and so ordered this based on the associated blurb which claimed it could. Unfortunately, it can't (without using Time Machine) because the associated software is only compatible with the Windows OS.
So my rating is based on the inability to use the device, and frustration at it not being fully compatible with Mac machines.

3.0 out of 5 stars Water Radio, 6 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shower Clock FM Radio
It's a circular plastic radio, placed inside a large rubber suction cup. Not exactly rocket science, but I guess it will do the job until the damp environment of the bathroom does eventually seep into the depths of the device. You won't know what radio frequency setting it is on as the display is dedicated to telling you the time; perhaps so you don't risk spending too long under the water.
It's not great, but hopefully it won't conk out after a few weeks.

Chunky, hard-wearing mat, ideal for complimenting a more traditional version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hopeless Case, 6 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is nothing more than a cheap foam-lined purse you would find on any market stall. It will not provide any sort of protection for your precious external hard drive. Sure, it will "carry" it - but only to a place that sells decent-quality EHD cases.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard Drive, Soft Touch, 6 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This being the third WD external hard drive I had purchased, my only reaction after removing it from the packaging was disappointment. With an extremely flimsy plastic casing, topped with what looks suspiciously like a large adhesive sticker, the overall appearance of this drive is pathetic.
This is not the standard I have come to expect from WD. Granted, it may work efficiently but I have serious doubts about the robustness of the device, and would be concerned if it took even the mildest knock. For the same price, you can opt for a number of other drives, many of which look and feel considerably more hardy than this effort.
If it is WD's intention to persuade us to pay more for their "metal" version (which, incidentally isn't 100% metal either), then for the extra tenner, I'd have to say go for that.
Better still, go for a different brand altogether, if this is the best WD can do these days.
