4* External 2.5" HDD
Reviewed by Mr H.T.H. on 26/04/2014
External HDD, does what it says on the tin, though I've only used it in USB2.0 mode so far.

Nice, compact little unit, a slight bit noisy on start but fine when running.
Doesn't seem to get that hot when used.

Neat case, but looks like it's stuck together, so don't expect to open the case and then use again !.
