 Maxell 8 GB Portable Hard Drive is excellent

I have had this now for at least 5 wks and love it. I take it everywhere as I can fit so much onto this little guy. I can drag and use this as an portable external hardrive it is so easy to use. I can transfer more than 30 albums at once from PC to laptop and thousands of jpgs. Impressive as my last USB stick was only 256 MB.

I do not use the software given but just open up the "my documents" section straight from plug in and share away.

Would recomend for the price to anyone who wants a large portable USB.

Only slight problem of getting hot on some transfers and not others but soon cools down.

Looks stylish too. I got this off Play for 30 quid in the sale at the time. Bargain for 8GB.

Very pleased with this little drive. Excellent for carting large volumes of info around

Comes with Ceedo installed for auto-synchronisation between drive and PC - haven't tried this, but it seems a good idea.

 Great size 8gb

ive read the reviews and thought i will try this one out. i had a play flash 4gb one and found the transfering kept crashing on large files tranfers. so im abit wary of large storage sticks. so i will try this make and hope it works well. gave it five stars becuase to give it a fair chance. im just waiting for it now in post. Also a 5 star rating for price these get cheaper each year

 Does exactly what it promises

People mention the backup software supplied with this drive, but you don't have to use it and can delete/move the applications off the drive if you need the space. Just drag & drop files into the drive from your file manager. I use Linux rather than Windows and it works fine under that, and presumably for an Apple Mac too. It's faster than a memory stick for backing up, and fills a gap between USB flash sticks and the larger 80Gb+ back up drives. You can also partition it like a normal HDD if you want. It comes with a USB "extension lead" and a natty little string-pull pouch to keep it in when you are transporting it about. All in all, a great package. Highly recommended.
