This is the perfect buy for anyone needing alot of space for their films games and music etc,
Loads of storage space and the transfer speeds arnt bad at all considering its through usb.
Great eco software which works on mac, xp and vista (32 bit only!) and will turn the hdd off when not being used saving electricty and money!
Also a nice encpytion tool which allows you to protect any data from being read/deleted upto 2gb.
Comes ready formatted for use with a ps3/xbox (fat32) but will also be read on a mac, linux, xp, vista and so on. As it is pre-formatted as a fat32 hdd, files larger than 4gb you will not be able to store on it.
So if you want to store files that are larger than 4gb you will need to re-format it in ntfs (which will not be read on games consoles)
The only way to get around this problem (and is what i have done) is partition the drive into 2 one as fat32 and one ntfs this way you can store large files on the ntfs side and read and transfer stuff from your games console on the fat32 side!
Dont be put off with the partitioning side of this drive as you will have to do it on any ex hdd if you want large files and read on your console. If you doubt you are going to need it for any files larger than 4gig i'd leave it as a fat32 for compatibility.
Overall the best external hard-drive i have ever used and great value for money a must buy!
