Anyone know how buffalo compares in reliability to western digital or the seagate drives that have been on here for a while?

Also - if there is any ability to password protect the whole drive in case i lose it? (an alternative seems to be to use some software - truecrypt - but i've not idea if thats any good)

Also - if its soldered in - or removeable (if I ever needed to...)

can anyone voting cold tell us why please?

Just got one from Scan for same price - sequential read speed 36MB/s and write speed 25MB/s - I didn't try the "turbo" software included with the drive. The drive is silent in operation and virtually no vibration.

Very hot! Bit annoyed I shelled out £30 for a 320GB 2.5" internal drive and £15 for an external casing for it :(

Hot, great price for a portable HDD

means out of stock but its worth ordering and seeing if they get it sooner as they often get things back in a couple of days 1-2 months is just a standard claim
if takes too long you can cancel it

I won't be surprised if it has a Western Digital or Seagate drive inside :)

This is not a standard claim!
I ordered one on 28/9 & it still hasn't arrived. The delivery date has changed 3 times since then & I was told by the retailer last week that the supplier/manufacturer are having a real hard time supplying Buffalo products.......so be prepared to wait!

yes its a standard claim - sometimes its accurate sometimes its not.
seems this time you may have to wait so id not bother but often it means a few days wait.

I may go for this as, at least they have them in stock.

Will either of these hard drive be ok to use with the wii

Could anyone say which is better

This kind of thing is great - much more convenient than the big ugly 3.5" versions (that are admittedly cheaper & larger capacity).

If anyone fancies one however - check to see if your PC has an external SATA port - if so, consider getting one that has connections for both USB2 (can be used anywhere in just about anything) & SATA (much quicker).

These tend to be a little more expensive "off the shelf" so you might have to buy a 2.5" hard drive & a caddy enclosure (which is also more expensive) to keep the costs down. Overall, will be more expensive than this & similar items, but well worth it in time saved if you regularly copy a lot of data.

Well the Drivestation Duo uses 2 Seagate drives, so I don't think they make their own drives. Just the other ...stuff (plastic case,usb cable,box... profit!).

Seems to work:

http://www.ubergizmo.com/15/archives/2008/02/turbo-usb.html

Maybe someone can do a benchmark with and without turbo use enabled?

With Turbo on I was able to achieve sustained transfer rates of 42MB/s - I've never seen a USB drive transfer at that speed before. Without Turbo it runs at 30MB/s for writes. It *does* support faster transfer - faster than my 3.5" desktop drive.

Just to be clear it is an E-Sata port you would be looking at - personally I think that USB3 has pretty much killed off E-Sata so if you are a speed king USB3 is the road to go down imho.

This is the next gen replacement for USB3.0 LightPeak

Yes had read about that one - wonder when Intel will get round to bringing it to market though. Still safe to say that USB3 is going to be the mainstream choice in 2011 as it will be phased into so many more devices over the next couple of months.
