4.0 out of 5 stars Works just fine, 19 April 2012
Had this a few weeks and it's working as the main backup for a Mac laptop. This has been a complete copy of the laptop's hard drive and a separate back up of all my photos, themselves around 150 GB. This did take a long time due to the transfer speed of usb 2 but I was expecting that. I cannot hear this unit when it is powered up or backing up so the front light is useful in reminding me that it is switched on. I do not leave it on all the time. I turn it on when and connect to the laptop whenever I want to do the backup. Latterly, I am just using the Mac's built in Time Machine program for the backups which also works without any problems with this hard drive.

This could make a difference to completing a large job of painting without going nuts. I have a large full house height extension to prime internal plaster then paint with the final choice for each room. So far this has behaved flawlessly, unlike the lower model in this range which died after mysteriously ingesting paint. Go for this model and that can't happen due to the length of hose between the spray trigger unit and the compressor motor.

You'll need to seriously dilute emulsion paint and stir and shake until the mix is consistent. This needn't take a long time though I maybe overcautious as I reckon it takes me 10 - 15 minutes to get this done.

I bought this a few weeks ago and it has proved easy to use. It loses 1/2 a star as transfer off HDD to dvd takes as long as the original program. Apart from that I recommend this unit.

I had a problem with an aerial signal that was too strong, diagnosed and rectified by an aerial fitter who put an attenuator on the end of the cable. Not the fault of the Panny though I do find it strange that a digital signal could be too strong. The aerial fitter was very impressed with the unit and plans to get one himself though I hadn't asked him to comment.

I have noticed a recent over saturation of colour that I put down to my ageing Samsung flat screen TV and possibly the… Read more
