1TB Portable 2.5" Hard Drive for £99.99 delivered @ Amazon

Great Value for a portable drive....

If you can find a 1TB portable drive for less I'd be VERY interested, fed up of the bluky 3.5 desktop drives with power supplies etc.

Buffalo’s MiniStation USB Hard Drive offers a compact, lightweight and portable storage solution for all. The MiniStation™ securely protects your data from prying eyes through hardware encryption and has excellent shock protection against those accidental knocks.
The MiniStation comes complete with the Buffalo Tools suite of complimentary software that offers enhancements such as TurboPC and Turbo Copy which help to increase file transfer and copy performance by up to 2x faster compared to standard USB2.0 portable hard drives, whilst Buffalo Backup software offers easy data backup and restore solutions.

Securely store, back-up and transport digital images, music and other files without taking valuable space on your PC’s hard drive.


Product Description
Protect your confidential data from prying eyes with the sleek, shockproof MiniStation by Buffalo! This Buffalo portable external hard drive includes FlexConnect technology to keep cables under control, and it's easy to configure. That's not all though! The MiniStation is even supplied with a comprehensive software package including TurboPC and TurboCopy, providing performances that are twice as fast as those offered by standard USB 2.0 hard drives.

THIS IS A 2.5" DRIVE>>>>>>> DO NOT CONFUSE IT WITH A 3.5" DRIVE LIKE SOME OF THE MUPPETS IN THIS THREAD!







Good price for a 1TB 2.5" drive.

Maybe for a 3.5" drive - this is very cheap for a 2.5" one. Hot from me!

The title really needs to state 2.5" or this deal will continue to get cold.
#8
Yes this is the best price I have found for a portable 2.5" External Hard Drive as opposed to a 3.5" External Desktop Hard Drive.
BUT......I already have a 500GB 2.5" External hard drive which I use with my laptop and I won't get a 1TB until the price comes down as 500GB is enough for me for use with the laptop.
I back up and store ALL my stuff on larger and cheaper 3.5" hard drives so I figure no point ...yet!!

Definately not and the clue is in the title - Portable drive. the 3.5" drives sre cheaper but require power. the Portable drives are 2.5" drives which are bus poered via USB.

Hot from me

Good deal - but to be fair to the guy commenting about other deals, there has been a lot of HDD offers posted on here recently. There's been a few for 500GB drives at £40-50, a 640GB for £55, and and a 1TB for the same price as this one....

Toshiba 1TB 2.5 inch External HDD - £99.99
Freecom 33990 Classic II 640GB £55.71

If your talking about the one from Currys, you will probably need a hammer and an electric jigsaw :)

I don't think this is a single 1TB drive, but two 500GB drives stacked in a single enclosure. As to whether it's still a hot deal in that case is up to you, although do bear (grr!) in mind that single 500GB ext drives sell for just £40, and 640GB drives are down to £55. This 1TB drive will need two or maybe 3 USB ports for power, single 500GB or 640GB drives will need one or two each.

Me, I'd go for a pair of 640GB drives. More flexible, innit?
#15
comments are just hilarious....

what did people think when they read "portable" ? seriously....!
#16
It's a good price for a 1tb drive but bad £/gb value compared to 500gb and 640gb drives available (i.e. I paid £84 for 2x portable 2.5" 500gb drives).

I would pay £110 for 2x 640GB than this one
banned#18
I purposely never put 2.5" in the thread, always mild entertainment watching those that are out to destroy a deal without having any idea what their talking about....

I could've put 1TB SSD for under £100 and it would have still gone cold with the usuall comments...'huh huh can get from ebuyer for £59 check here, WD elements desktop HD''
#19
Great price, nice find OP!
#20
Hot deal to the people educated about this sort of thing. OP maybe put 2.5" in title too or USB powered to completely avoid confusion.

I think with the format of the hot and cold buttons people just skim read the title, see the price, recall a cheaper 1tb hard drive and then quickly vote cold.

Perhaps maybe people are voting cold on brand? I personally go for WD products, I have about 6 various hard drives from them, all have been bashed about etc and still work great. Never had a problem. Wouldn't stop me voting hot but some people get a bit fanboyish about labels.

Nice price although really any need for the stupid thread title.

Out of stock and Kikatek charge rip off amount for delivery so not as cheap as amazon... Also I don't trust Toshiba drives, had one die on me.. This has a WD drive in it and I like WD and the style of this... In any case mine'll be here tomorrow... woohoo

Is this a 5400rpm or 7200rpm?

If this is the latter, then it would be very appealing

Once again a HUKD showing why he is a numpty... Votes should be based on if the product is a good price, in this case it's the cheapest for 1TB portable drive. So it's a HOT deal. You shouldn't vote based on the way the thread is written... I actually put this up as a standard title and then it went to -42c so I changed it to what you saw... Then it went HOT, interesting!

This is a single drive, not a pair. 1TB 2.5" drives have existed for a little while now, just not at a decent price.
#32
I have one of the older 500GB Buffalo Ministations and like the tough shell and wraparound cable which this one also looks to have but I'm concerned about the software, does anyone know if you can use this as a conventional drive and bin any of the software on it? I realise you normally can but the WD 1TB 2.5in drives have a daft setup where you can hide the tools but not get rid of them.

Wow that was so clever of you.

Great that there are so many IT gurus on here that can revel in their self satisfied smugness that they know the difference between these two exciting and diverse technologies.

Hi John,

I tried formatting my WD by right clicking on the drive which it then said option disaabled. So I then went into Drive manager (right click on my computer and select manage) and then deleted both partitions (one had all the crap) on and then formatted... Works great...

I read on Tom's hardware that there's not enough power in a single USB to power 7200rpm at full speed, you'd need a splitter cable that uses two ports in the PC.... Personally I'd rather have a little slower and a single USB port...

Personal Prefference of course
