    Never heard of the Neso brand before but eventually decided to buy this unit as I knew hitachi and the images looked good.

    Booted up the xHDD and was pleasently surprised, quiet operation and performs as well I need to for my day to day use. The biggest seller of this drive however is how it looks, cracking little unit that is the size of my Iphone and weighs about the same. The chrome exterior looks fantastic and even came with a protective cover

    If you are looking for an all round drive this is your pick!

    Bought this to replace a flash memory stick which broke resulting in some lost work.

    The first thing I have to say about this drive is it looks incredible! Even better than I thought it would despite my high expectations based on other reviews. Its also very weighty and feels quite sturdy because of its metal case. The only downside is the actual capacity of the drive comes up as just shy of 300GB but most other hard drives tend to be short of the stated capacity in my experience. Potentially a format may sort this out although I havn't tried this yet.

    In use its simply plug and play. Within 30 seconds I had plugged it in (needing only 1 USB of the Y cable supplied) and had copied over the coursework I needed backing up.

    The other benefit to the Neso is that when it arrives it comes in a neat plastic case the same size as the drive with added depth to fit the USB cable below. This is perfect for transporting it around so you can keep it safe.

    Overall a great compact drive and well worth getting.

    Edit: After a bit of searching found that the difference in drive space is due to a difference in how Megabytes are calculated. They advertize based on a megabyte being 1,000,000 bytes. In reality, your computer reports gigabytes based on megabytes being 1024 kilobytes, which are 1024 bytes. A gigabyte is 1024 megabytes. Therefore, if you divide 320,000,000,000 by 1024 three times, you get 298 gig which is actually the correct storage capacity (and what my computer registers it as).

    The drive has just seen its first use and theres nothing to complain about all. Well apart from the case showing up finger prints really easy!

    It comes in a great little box with foam lining, which I intend to store it in. I simply took it out of the box, plugged the USB cable in (A twin USB cable is supplied, but it works fine with one USB on my 18month old HP Pavillion laptop), the drivers installed automatically and the window popped up ready for copying files. No formatting required - acts simply like a big USB stick. Data transfer is fairly quick with USB2.0 and it has a funky blue LED to let you know its copying. All the connections are solid, the drive is quiet, and the case looks great as well as being different to everything else on the market.

    Like I said - perfect!

    Bought this hardrive a few weeks ago after reading postive reviews and was pleasantly suprised on how nice it is. I know the reviews were good but i was still suprised by how small it is and how good the chrome looks on the casing.
    My laptop took literally a matter of seconds to install the driver. The transfer rate is good, although depends on how many other programs you have open.

    Only reason im not going to give it 5/5 is because it would not eject from my laptop once, kept coming up saying it was transferring a file even though it wasnt. I had to risk it and pull the USB cable out, ever since then its been fine and not lost any files or corrupted.

    I am very confused by the review above stating connection and power issues.

    I have purchased 2 NESO drives now and have been thrilled by the performance, are u possibly using a very old laptop system?

    I have used both my NESO units on my laptop, my desktop and various work PCs and the performance has always been first rate

    I will certainly be sticking with this brand!

    Really pleased with the little Neso after the first month, or so. Whether this is enough time with electrical equipment to make a judgement, I'm not sure.

    The Neso is small, fast and shiney, like a gold-plated kitten, strapped to a rocket.

    Not much else to say, except that I've also used the perspex packaging it comes in as a sanding block for sanding down filler on walls. I'm not sure if this was intended by the manufacturers, but I applaud them on the sizing for this application.

    well it looks great but it does not work on my mac lap top. i've spent hours looking at internet forums advising the downloading of swissknife soft ware to make it work. however, none of these downloads have worked on my mac. basically, it is not true that it will run on Macs so if you have a mac DON'T BUY THIS HARD DRIVE. i think it was very misleading for them to have claimed it for use on MAC. infact i'm well annoyed.
