Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact size for a large capacity. After trying it on 2 laptops & 2 desktops, I finally discovered why it wouldn't work! It was preformatted to a non-windows system. It was bought as NEW! Since finding instructions on how to re-format it to NTFS it's been working fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice neat design Recently bought, not many around in the shops but available online. So far so good. Seems idiot proof which is very good indeed! Still finding my way around it but it talks to my MacBook Pro with no issues.
