5* Excellent Value
Reviewed by Teige on 29/09/2013
I'm very pleased with this hard drive. It has a very solid design that really looks after your data. It's really easy to use, and comes with privacy protection software and a 10 GB allowance of cloud storage for extra backup, for one year.
5* Great Rugged Drive

I've been considering to get one of these Rugged drives for a while. I love the design of this unit - it looks pretty simple, yet sturdy. The speed is great. There's enough storage for my needs. Sensitive files can be encrypted, if necessary, which is a big plus.
5* Good Product

This mobile drive is pretty handy. I've used it for a while now, and it's probably the best portable drive I've ever had. It has both Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 connections, both very fast. The design is great. I'm very satisfied.
5* Excellent portable hard drive

This is an excellent gadget, just what I was looking for. It's fast (USB 3.0 is excellent) and 1TB is loads of space. I use this drive every day, and it's never failed me yet.
5* Love it

I'm a plain-vanilla computer user who was looking for an external USB drive with an automatic backup capability. With this unit, I got what I wanted, and more. The encryption software was pretty easy to set up so that my really sensitive files were safe, and I could also store them in the 10 GB of cloud storage that came with the drive.
5* Great Rugged Drive

My friends sometimes kid me, calling me a "belt and suspenders" kind of person when it comes to my data, but that's the way I am. This unit gives me a good foundation with its MIL spec construction, and plenty of room for multiple, incremental backups. I am fully satisfied.
5* great drive

This drive has the best connectivity options and works just as well with PC as it does with Macs. The online manual makes it very easy to install the unit, and download drivers for the pc if needed to make the thunderbolt port functional. I use it with USB 3, and it's very fast. Sweet and easy to use unit.
5* great rugged drive
Reviewed by anonymous on 17/11/2013
This USB drive is decidedly superior to other drives I've bought in the past. It gets its power from my computer instead of a separate power supply, it's got a USB 3.0 port (which speeds file transfers considerably), and it's tough enough to send through the mail or via courier (and even survived a fall from a desk to the floor).
5* Works perfectly
Reviewed by anonymous on 10/10/2013
I needed a new portable drive for my Time Machine backup for my laptop. This fitted the bill perfectly, it's fast, efficient and has more than enough storage space for my backup and media. I like the design, too, - it's very rugged, yet stylish.
5* Well Designed, Very Robust

Great drive. Excellent build quality. Excellent transfer speeds. Plenty of storage space. Works smoothly and quietly, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
