      Great trusty HD

      I have had this harddrive for many years now and its been the one that has lasted the longest! I have had many harddrives because I always tend to fill up my space with pictures, music movies and games. I have purchased a number of cheap (No Frills ) branded ones which were ok but all have gone wrong and broke. I have had ones that have corrupted and failed, Ones where the power supply has created a power surge and broke it. Neadless to say I have not had much luck with external harddrives apart from this one, Its lasted me the longest, it does the job and I never seem to have any problems with it. The HD is a old one and for that the size of it, is big compared to new HD and the fact with this one you need to plug a DC connector in. Most new HD are made to be as small as possilble and to be as simple as possible.

      If the new HD could do all these things and be as reliable as this sterdy harddrive then we would never have any problems. I have always trutsed weston digitial with HD because they always seem to produce quality items and thats why they are so popular. There used in most things these days from xbox's to tv HD to memory sticks ect. All of their products I have sampled have been perfect and this is why I beleive they are one of the leading HD manufactures and the one I trust the most.!

      The Hard drive itself:
      Its very reliable
      It can be stood two ways ( stand up or down flat)
      Its fast
      The brand is reliable
      Very easy to use
      Great value for money
      Quite

      A fantastic hard drive that I would really recommend!

      Having had my PC for a long time now I had noticed that I was running our of storage space. I therefore felt that I needed to get an external hard drive and one if a suitable size so that I knew it would last a long time. You can now get this hard drive for just £60 from Amazon although I bought mine for £80.

      The first advantage of this hard drive is that it is 250GB which is absolutely ideal for storing endless amounts of multimedia. I have found if to be very safe and secure and it is ide for backing up your computer which gives you reassurance. It was easy to install and really did work right out of the box.

      I really like the way if looks really stylish and it is relatively small which makes it great to put on your desk. I really would recommend this because it has offered everything that you would want from an external hard drive. One thing to be aware of is that it uses a mains supply to power it which I found to be slightly annoying. I really like how quiet it was when in use, it really does almost run silently!

      Considering the price this really is an excellent external hard drive that really is quite portable. It is fantastic how you can put a collection of movies on it and then take it to a friends house to watch them! The case is secure and offers a good deal of protection whilst the stand keeps it steady. I hope this was useful and thank you very much for reading!
