      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I'd recommend it

      After some reviewing of similiar products I finally purshased this external harddrive for my mother for christmas.

      I found rather than spending a little less (Around £55) for a 500gig Maxtor drive I would go the extra mile for the size and simplicity of this baby.

      I have to say the size was most definatly the main reason I went for this drive over others. It is very sleek and fits in the palm of my hand. Most ideal for using as a portable drive from home to work as my mother was going to.

      Another advantage to this over other bigger drives is there is no need for another power source other than USB 2.0. This meant no hauling around a power pack everywhere you went. Admittingly you do get additional speed from drives with a mains connector however the difference is not that much.

      The moment this was plugged in you are greeted with some software installers which are there for your benefit. No "Trial" versions of something you would have to pay for in the future so no problem. If you don't wish to use these simply move them into a redundant folder on the drive as they take up very little space. Other than that there was nothing else to do, no software, no mishaps and more importantly no problems.

      In summary I feel I made the right decision in choosing this external harddrive and best of all so does my mother.
