Rated 4 out of 5 by SteveSK Nice, compact backup solution
I use this simply to create offline backups from a couple of Windows PCs. Just plug in, copy files and folders across using Windows backup software - haven't used the backup software supplied on the drive, so can't comment about that. Also, just let the backups run so can't really comment on the speed of the drive. Drive is compact, can leave it in a drawer at the in-laws (as an off-site disaster backup) without inconveniencing them.

It's a great little product. Plug in and go with my Mac Air. We experience occasion power cuts so being bus powered helps to avoid the drive failures that befell its predecessor. Great product, love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paprika36 Perfect for the job
I was moving house and needed to get everything off the PC. This nifty piece of kit allowed me to back up everything with room to spare. Reasonably priced (cheaper the Amazon!) and was exactly what I needed.

I have it as a recorder device on my Samsung Smart TV. I works great and can finally records loads of movies.

This hard drive arrived really quickly. Unfortunately, it wasn't compatible with my CCTV system so I had to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jonnyjay Just as expected!
Small, quick, a great companion for a laptop with just SSD. I have carefully avoided installing the on-board Samsung software and just let Windows 8.1 and my preferred software use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Casper0541 Tough, Super fast and looks good
the hard drive arrived in good time, was well packaged and the checkout system from SCAN was easy to navigate.
the USB 3 connection/transfer speed is fantastic, large amounts of data can be moved in seconds.
it looks good, fits in most hard drive cases and runs almost silently.
there was 1 drawback, it comes with Samsung software which you can upload from the hard drive, if this is your only hard drive it will I'm sure be fine, I have an older hard drive which would not work again until I removed the software. both hard drives work perfectly without the Samsumg software, but it did look like some of the Samsung features would be good, I just did not get chance to use them.
I would recommend this 1TB hard drive and the service you will receive from SCAN
