MyBook Essential 250GB review

Like the Men in Black, only not...

Dark and menacing - just the way we like it

Our Verdict

It's easy on the wallet and on the eye, there's little to dislike about this toy


  • Looks fantastic

    Really cheap

We're simple folk, unimpressed by glittering but pointless frippery, so getting on board with the MyBook was easy. Seriously though, what's not to like?

It's no-nonsense black, virtually silent, and fast enough that you'll forget the fact it's sucking binary through a USB2 port, rather than working from within your PC's rusty innards. We're also big fans of any piece of hardware that glows menacingly while in use. It only costs around £65, too.
