Ordering was straight forward enough. The drive arrived properly boxed - so I was assured it was safe in transit. Got free (basic) delivery, but arrived in time. HD is amazing - wanted to connect to a hub that makes it available over the network. Work fine! Very happy with it and the service provided by
5* Cracking drive

Neat and small, with the benefit of being powered off the USB port. It seems fairly quiet, cool running and reliable. Only snag is the USB lead goes in the side rather than the back, so it looks a mess on the desk.

I have used as both Fat32 and NTFS format, both work superbly.
