When my laptop started to run out of space at university I looked around for a new external hard drive to move files on to and be able to back up my computer. I came across this hard drive and decided to purchase it.
I am extremely happy with it as several years later it is still working and stores a wonderful amount of everything really. All my videos and pictures as well as a complete back up of my laptop and more. The drive stays cool even with the use and amount I store on it, also there is not a loud noise when I use it. Another advantage is drive can be free standing so takes up minimal space, and the cable is long enough that I can have relatively free movement with using it.
My one and only issue is that the cable, although long and robust, doesn't appear to stay securely in the hard drive. This results in the drive disconnecting and reconnecting randomly from time to time, especially if I'm moving my laptop (for example putting it to one side to get a cup of tea or a different book). However, this is a small flaw and easily remedied by making sure I only connect the drive when my laptop will be static for a long period of time.
Having had this for over two years without any problems I feel I can safely recommend this hard drive for purchase (and should I ever need another one I would be happy to repurchase).
