This replaces a 320gb usb3 drive, and is only marginally bigger in size, but massively bigger capacity wise.
Very happy :o)
Just wish they'd give you a longer usb cable...that would make it perfect
This item holds 1.81 Terra bytes (1.81 million mega-bytes) of data, so are a great way to back up your DVds, or PC stuff.
I now use this to back up my PC automatically making back-iups practical for the first time ever. In the floppy disk days I have to sit at the PC for 12 hours changing disks for each back-up. Then with DVDs I was caught by the need to burn multi-sessions (wasted many disks before working out that you cannot burn more than 35 minutes in a single session; so to fill a full DVD you have to set up 3 or 4 sessions), and took about 3 to 4 days to do a complete backup! Which explains why when my last hard drive crashed I lost 2-years of downloads (had not been able to bring myself to go through the hell of doing a complete backup in that time).
With this though, just set Nero (or some other burning software) to do an auto back-up every few days and you barely notice when its backing up. And certainly don't have to devote a day or 4 of your precious time on each backup. This is the way to go for sure!
A wonderful product for any PC user!

I test that all backups are working for our client's every 2-3 months (restoration to a test server). The test server that we use is of a different hardware -configuration to client servers - I can confirm that a bare metal restore works correctly with this external hard drive.

I like it, the only thing the connector could fit better can be a bit loose and louse connection that can be annoying.Published 11 months ago by sherlock norville
