External portable hard drive, on Amazon this costs £120 and I can't find it near this price anywhere else, model with Firewire 800 which usually costs a load more over the USB model

G technology - what?
Firewire - use?
Good price tho
Any reason you'd choose this over the 1tb portable USB 3 hitachi Touro ?


I don't know anyone who still uses firewire, bar a few old video cameras.
I think you would be surprised how much equipment still use firewire , most of sony laptops come with it think a few product come as a i-link am sure I have/had DVD player with it on also I just bought a new m/board and it has it
G Technology are an Hitachi brand, they make a lot of "professional" RAID drives etc

I'm personally a Mac user, so limited to USB2/Firewire/Thunderbolt. USB 2 is pretty slow in comparison to FW800 (and Thunderbolt drives are ridiculously expensive), so they are still quite popular, but usually a premium above USB drives. For users who have USB 3 compatible products then the drive on eBuyer is a bargain, but for anyone who needs (specifically) a drive with Firewire then as far as I know this is about as cheap as it gets.

Agreed... a good (bridging) hard drive for Mac users while we wait for the Thundebolt drives to become mainstream/affordable
This is a lovely drive for the money, hot hot hot.
