Samsung M3 1TB USB 3.0 Slimline Portable Hard Driv&hellip by Samsung

Firstly, a caveat; I travel internationally a lot, and my tech travels with me, therefore, it's possible that it suffers more abuse than that of someone whose gadgets just sit on their work desk!

I bought two 1Tb drives almost a year ago; one is still going strong, while the other has really come to the end of its useful life. To be honest, if this was the first time that it had failed, I'd be inclined to say I'd had my money's worth but in reality, it started failing less than six months after I purchased it. Fortunately there is some great recovery software to be had (e.g. Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery for Windows), and I've managed to recover the drive half a dozen times… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A Triumph!, 6 Jan 2014
I have been a big fan of Manula's blog and YouTube channel for almost a year, and was absolutely delighted when she announced that she had published a book on Kindle. From start to finish, the book is Manjula through and through, and is a delight to read. As ever, the recipes are exceptionally easy to follow, delivering a perfect result every time.

One of the things I love about Manjula is that she is very down-to-earth and accessible; her recipes are not fussy or extravagant, which means that they can be made in any kitchen in almost any country in the world. And because they are very adaptable, I often substitute ingredients - either because I cannot always obtain them, or… Read more
