Maxtor Personal Storage 5000DV review

Quote from the review:

“Backing up your data… How many of us actually backup on a regular basis? I can personally admit to not backing up regularly. We seem to have a mind set that it would never happen to us, no-one expects to loose data because of a fire, theft or hard drive failure – but these things can and do happen…”

Our take: The 5000DV is a pretty solid drive and you certainly get a lot of storage space. It gets pretty hot and there is no on/off switch which is a bummer. The included backup software which works with the on-touch backup system is a good idea too. We reviewed the drive on Designtechnica a while back, you can check it out here.
