Rated 5 out of 5 by MrGrey Good value, reliable and fit for purpose
This is the second 2TB hard drive of this model that I've bought. The first was 3 years ago and it has worked fine, in almost constant daily use since day one.
I purchased and installed the second hard drive a few weeks ago to enable me to do full automated backups of all of my data from my SSD (solid state drive - which I use as my boot drive) and my other 2TB HDD.
I am happy with this product. I have found that with 2TB of disk space, it has plenty of capacity, and even after 3 years, I've only used just under half of the available disk space.
For me the requirement for a second hard drive was primarily driven by the fact that the windows operating system requires a separate drive from the one your data resides on, to do a full back up. It fitted nicely into the Corsair 650D case which houses my extreme performance pc.
Another important consideration for me, was that this drive is competitively priced, it is currently at least 25% cheaper than the first one I bought. Performance is also good, games like World of Warcraft run happily from it without the need to be installed on the SSD.
For the price and given specifications, I would recommend this product. I think it deserves its current 'Hot Seller' tag. I also like the delivery service from Scan, which I have found to be reliable and quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by William001 Great little drive unit.
brought one of these drive as a back up storage for my main SSD.
Had no problems with it, and backup and copies files really fast on my current system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fyre4ge Does what I bought it for.
Needed a bigger, faster drive, and that's what I got! A good price, plus the added protection of the installation insurance. They also helped me resolve a payment issue and didn't moan when I wanted to try a couple more times "just to be sure". :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clayton Good quality and value for money
Used to transfer my system from quite a small SSD - although a bit more sluggish than the SSD (to be expected) this disc still performs well and of course has much more storage. Very good value for the amount of storage it provides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Faaal Great hard drive!
I've thrown everything onto the drive and now I barely touch my external. Very happy with this purchase. Quiet, fast transfer speeds, I'm never waiting for it to spin up like some old drives of mine *shudder*. Happy customer!
