For reference the drive is a mere 36.0mm thick and cost only £80.

As you can see from the last images I use this drive as a Time Machine. At this price it is a very affordable back up (Time Machine) solution. The speeds are good, and by that I mean I don’t notice them being slow. I can’t comment on how it operates as a daily drive however as a TM it has given me no problems, I haven’t even noticed it was there. Which makes it pretty much ideal!

My last Time Machine drive gave me problems with the drive powering down and unmounting. Although not disasterous it was far from ideal, this drive however has not let me down once. It has remained constantly powered, mounted and backing up to its little heart’s content.

A lot of storage for the money and a good solution to keeping precious files safe**.

**Although like anything I thoroughly believe one backup solution is not enough and when possible make extras and consider online solutions as well!
