Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Product Really impressed with this hard drive, extremely easy to use and very quick. I uploaded hundreds of photos in minutes. 26 May 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Does not achieve USB 3 speeds Obviously, as a plug and play device it's easy to use. However, it comes nowhere near achieving the speeds available with USB 3 (which should be around 10 times faster than USB 2) - even though I have it connected via a USB 3 port. In fact, it is hardly any faster than my USB 2 hard drives. Disappointing really. 16 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, lots of memory, small and neat. Just what I needed to store my photographs etc, very easy to use. Good price 19 February 2014
