Rated 5 out of 5 by Does just what I needed Very easy to install. Backs up all data without being prompted and is very small and discreet. Click and collect was excellent. 22 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very easy to use Great product, easy to use especially for computer novices like me. 12 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just What was Needed Brilliant hard drive, plugged straight in the Mac and ready to go. Service from John Lewis was excellent, as usual. 29 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love at first sight This is a neat, robust feeling, little beauty. Because I am very happy with the one I bought for myself over a year ago, I bought one for my ex,, who, like me, owns an aluminium bodied laptop. The hard-drive's ease of use and the fact that it has built-in security software, coupled with its good looks and very reasonable price, made for compelling reasons to choose it as a gift. 21 January 2014
