After filling up most of my PC I decided it was time to get an external harddrive. I plumped for one of the best rated ones on other websites and ended up here.
Connecting through a USB port, the hard drive is small and compact, easily portable, it even fits into some of my bigger pockets quite comfortably. This gives you a great ease of use when moving data from one place to another that may not necessarily be so portable.
The drive makes very little noise, although there is the odd whir every now and again, but nothing too noticeable, particularly if you have media blasting out of your pc.
One small issue I have had is that every now and again the drive seems to almost reset, causing it to turn off for a momentary second, before switching back on. This isn't a problem unless playing media through it, as it causes it to stop (using I-tunes it does anyway). Like I say, this is a very rare problem for me, but I thought it was worth mentioning. It could even just be my USB ports cutting the power.
I would reccommend this hard drive thoroughly, but maybe check online to see if other people have had my fault with it.
