Seems a good price for 500GB of pocketable storage. Intenso are a German company with a good reputation, and this certainly looks attractive and well built.

It is USB 2.0, so 30-35MB's reansfer speeds and easily connected to any PC built in the last 10 years.

Terrible price for a 500GB drive.

Please share your knowledge and post a link to a better, cheaper 2.5" portable USB hard disk. I think you may be confusing this with the much less portable 3.5" brick versions that require seperate power supplies to run.

It is just the picture Intenso use to advertise the entire range, They come in 320, 500, 540 & 1000GB sizes, but the one offered here is definately the 500GB version.

I just bought a 2.5 500gb Seagate from Amazon for £39.99.
It appears that it is now £44.99

Average price for a relatively unknown brand (in the UK), Seagate on Amazon for £45 and WD Passports for £49.

dixon had the seagate that janner66 linked to for £39.99 for one day only just recently(in the last wek, can't remember the date).

would it be better to get the wd passport 500gb for £44 from currys/pcw(reserve and collect with the £5 voucher, as instore it's 99p more(£49.99 instore vs £49 online reserve and collect))?

Seagate are crap - I'd rather have an unknown brand tbh.

Pretty much all of the USB 2.0 2.5" portable hdd's are the same. They all use WD, Samsung, Seagate, Toshiba low power hdd's and just place them inside a pretty or not so pretty case. Just go for the size you need and whichever offers the best price.

The WD passports use their own propriety cable - so you have to use the one they provide. So don't think they are better - in fact the cable issue would make me choose a different brand even if they were the same price.
Most other brands use standard USB to Mini USB cables ( so cheap and easy to find if you need another or want to leave one at work etc).
Other than that they are all pretty much the same and the drive specs are all very similar.

They use Micro USB, its annoying now, but i think it'll become more widespread in the future. But its true, no good reason to not use Mini-USB instead

This looks exactly like my WD Elements hard drive.

hey mystic meg it's nothing you need to predict, from what I've read all smart phones(bar the iphone(or whatever apple decide to call their smart phone in the future)) will use micro-usb for their data/charger cable. so people who own smart phones in the future(well it's already tarted with the desire, desire hd etc) should have spare micro-usb cables laying about, like with mini-usb now(I already have 2 micro usb cables, 1 from my desire and the other from the new amazon kindle).

The micro-USB connector used on my compact camera is rubbish. It may save a tiny bit of space but it fits loosely and is prone to fall out or casue data transfer failure if there is any movement. The larger mini-USB connectors, as used on my DSLR, 2.5" portable hdd and PS3 controllers are MUCH better.

Me saying it's a bad deal doesn't mean there's a better one. USB 3.0 is gonna take over soon and for the sake of a bigger drive, you can get four times the size. I'd say that's a better deal, anyway, budds.

Maybe everyone should wait for USB4.0 or USB5.0? Sure 3.0 is faster than 2.0, but 3.0 demands a higher price and not many people have USB3.0 motherboards yet.

Mine arrived today (yes on a Sunday). It is well built, attractive in an iPhone 4 kind of way and performs well. Read speeds average 37MB's and write 29MB's within HDTach benchmark. I am very pleased.
