It easy to set up, didn't have any problems. Seems to be working in the background and no problems so far.
It's too early to say if there's any bad points, I've only just received it but it seems good.

Back up software is rather very basic, could be better and more user friendly and proactive. Especially for people who may have a limited knowledge of computer's and little understanding of back up precedures.
