I saw this.

Nice price, how ever if the drive screws up, you're gona lose a lot of data. Best to spread over a few drives!

However, WD are very very good, so it probably won't screw up!!
#2
wish I could afford this...although its still a very good price, and Western digital are generally very good quality.

1TB Drives are gona be all it in the next few months. I imagine that this drive could be down to £200 or less within the next 3 months!

I'm assuming the fact that this is a dual drive means that it has 2 500Gb drives in it? Wouldn't that explain the Raid options?

Oh, yes your probably right cuppa!

As for 1TB Drives. Well when I was looking at them back in September, they were goin for about £700 each! Now looK!

WooT!?

I was thinking of buying this at Amazon, but the reviews put me off. The Amazon US reviews aren't great, either.

I ought to add that I do own the 500GB version, which I'm very happy with.

Is that right?

raybog I'm very sceptical of that figure, all hard drive makers cheat on storage amount by saying 1,000,000 bytes = 1megabyte (when it's actually 1,048,576bytes)

So once that is taken into account and the 5.5% formating takes away on in MBR and TOC and the hard drive makers cheating figures, you tend to only get 87-89% of the quoted figure, so in this case, I reckon 870-895gigabytes

If you need space and doesn't need to be portable, for £205 you can get 2 Samsung 500gb SATA2 16MB 7200RPM drives delivered
