Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this hard drive today. I like the stylish design: looks fantastic next to my MacBook. It does not make much sound and is actually quite slim (I would recommend buying a case for it). Good price for the capacity. Moreover, it comes with a 2 year warranty and the make is Seagate which means good quality. Finally, USB 3.0 allows to transfer data at high speed (works with USB 2.0 as well). Very happy with this essential device. Thanks Maplin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not easy! Got this in case laptop broke so I would have a back up of all photos, account details, songs etc... Sounded on details as if it was a case of "plug it in & get automatic backup of all files". However on installing despite "copying all" all I get is a 4% of drive full, just seagate dashboard, instructions etc; no photos or songs copied. Help pages show complex (For a novice pc user like me) methods to copy files individually! to this external drive, can't make head nore tail of it. Will take into a local Maplins see if they can get it to copy all data, if not it will go to a charity shop!
