About seven months ago I decided to buy myself a new hard-drive, just in time for going to University. I loved my old 250GB hard-drive and have decided to get myself another WD hard-drive with bigger space (500GB) as I figured with all the essay's I would be writing I'd need the extra GB. Appearance: I wasn't very satisfied with the plastic cover of this new model- the old model was a glossy, harder (more durable) plastic - which comes with its disadvantages (in other words, several of my fingerprints on the cover), but this model looked like it's made with flimsier, thinner plastic but comes with a matt finish - which means goodbye to ...

Western Digital make some of the best hard drives available, and this is no exception. It's good value for money compared to similar drives, is easy to carry around and looks stylish.

It is coated with a hard-wearing plastic shell and I have no scratches on mine despite it being used on a regular basis and carried around a great deal.

I loved my old 250GB hard-drive and have decided to get myself another WD hard-drive with bigger space (500GB). Personally, I liked the old version better, but this is... not bad. It serves its purpose of allowing you to backup large amount of data - in a stylish, lightweight and even slimmer portable device, with four small rubber fleets that keeps the drive in place. I wasn't very satisfied with the plastic cover of this new model- the old model was a glossy, harder (more durable) plastic - which comes with its disadvantages (i.e: fingerprints on the cover), but this model looked like it's made with flimsier, thinner plastic but comes with a matt finish - ...
