Rated 5 out of 5 by Drewand Verbatim 320GB Portable Drive
An excellent 'mini' drive.
I bought because I work as a lecturer and move from place to place and like to have all my resources with me.
This drive had more than enough space for what I needed and I have been able to add more to my teaching by having the ability to carry video files with me.
At the price it is excellent.
The only down side is that it has no soft cover to protect it but I purchased a soft cover with a hard interior from PC World for less than a fiver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pinkfluff value for money drive
This is a nice looking drive, colour slightly darker than advertised but still a lovely shade of blue. Works really well, and very fast transfer. I use this drive because my laptop soon fills up and then it tends to run slower, so I put nearly all my files on the Verbatim drive, and use like it is a fixed drive. Very useful, and I am more than pleased with my purchase, certainly good value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ian18 Good Deviced at a Good Price
I wanted a 320Gb FAT32 portable HDD in Blue to go with my Brennan JB7 and as the Seagate FreeAgent Go was out of production I thought i'd give this one a go and was very impressed. It comes ready formatted in FAT32 (Not newer NTFS) so is Mac and Windows compatable (Not tried in WIN98SE but should work) and most importantly worked without formatting/partitioning with my Brennan so I can back up my music very easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Redhot1981 Easy to use
This portable hard drive is very easy to use. You can just literally plug it in and use it. I feel better now I know my photos and pictures are backed up in case anything happens to my computer.
There is not enough explanation as to what the two pieces of software contained on it are so I haven't installed them yet. This has not affected the way the device functions however.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NuttyBat Functional, but not the shade shown
The product does what it needs to, and is a nice portable size. The shape is also nice, and the product at £45 is good value for money.
However, if you are buying the product based on its colour, the images if the device are deceptive. Although it is a nice blue, it is darker than in the images and more towards the purple side of the spectrum than the green.

Rated 5 out of 5 by longbowarcher a brilliant buy
I wanted a storage devise for photos, seldom used programs and music. this devise is simple to use, easy to install and easy to transfer info to. It is small and unobtrusive. I have also purchased a USB 4 port hub also from ASDA (£3) so that i can transfer info from my flash drive to this hard drive.
As a result, my computer has speeded up again.
