Western Digital 1TB for same price @ Ebuyer - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/144824
#2
indeed i stand corrected ;)

i would rather buy from amazon though as if it drops in price ( probally will) within 30 days u get the difference back :D
#3
Right at the bottom of the amazon page, the dreaded words - contains
"AC power adapter included"
#4
WD/ebuyer one looks like it does not need power adaptor, so that one is better for some.
#5
I was considering this last night, at £95 as posted yesterday, so this has to be a good price I think, although I hadn't realised it had to be externally powered - thanks for pointing that out. WD might look a better bet for me.
#6
most 3.5 drives need to be externally powers , its the 2.5 drives that dont.

The power requirements would be to extreme on a USB hub/interface.
#7
I have a WD & it needs an external power supply. As already remarked its the tiny 2.5" drives that don't but they currently max out at 320Gb (although 500Gb is coming)

500GB versions have been out for some time now.

Just so you know.....[SIZE="3"]ALL[/SIZE] 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drives will have an external power supply , [SIZE="3"]ALL[/SIZE] 2.5" Portable drives will run off USB power alone although some require a Y Splitter cable and 2 USB slots
#11
Not all 3.5" need external power supply. Some have the power supply built in the case, yes they are not bus powered but the important thing is they do not need an external power brick.
#12
Power supply: true... needing a 2.5" too and getting my head wires crossed...

LOL, that was a little ambiguous, could you be more specific:whistling:
#14
I bought this just last week at £94.99 from Amazon.
Fortunately I can use their price match so thats a fiver saved, thanks!

BTW, these drives use Samsung SpinPoint F1 drives, so very quiet and good performance.

Heat Added!
#15
I just bought the 750gb version of this from ebuyer for £64.99.
#16
This is better value as it works out 10p a gig and 750gb works out 11p a gig. I know its not much!

Both are good deals!

Heated...:p
#17
Hot Deal.

I was reading reviews as I was wanting a new Ext drive and the Buffalo drives are much better than the Western Digitals.

I own two Western Digitals from about 2005 and both have never failed on me. But if the Buffalo has the Samsung inside its a no brainer.

I just wish I could get a drive for this price/size that has either eSATA or Firewire as I much prefer these to USB2.
#18
Good deal.

I find the speed and performance on these acceptable however they are a little noisy if you do a lot of writes, they also run hotish

And that's unusual / a worry / concerning, how exactly ?

Or is it that you worry about the silliest little things ? :w00t:
#20
Just thought I should mention that with Buffalo external hard drives its potluck which brand of hard disk is actually inside. I have several 500gb hd version and some have Samsung, other have Western Digital. But I have read some reviews that in the past Hitachi have been used. I think its whatever Buffalo buy a job lot of at the time. lol

It is a fanless design external hd but if you leave it on for several hours it can get reallt hot, there is an optional stacking and fan kit - you can stack upto 4 hd - that is if you can actually get your hands on one, price varies between £8-16.

Also I don't use the backup software included (1 month demo) - found it to be a nightmare to remove off the pc.

I would have though it would be much better to have an external transformer than one inside the case making it even hotter. Cant see why having it outside the case is such a big deal. I'd rather the HD be a cool as possible.

Few things really:

The 500gb model gets **** reviews

Also, the power supply thing, aren't we all moaning because this is the thing which normally goes in externals? My toshiba one went and now my seagate drive itself has gone. Seagate have provided a terrible RMA service/none at all! so I'm left driveless again and looking.

Personall I think the best option is just to buy an ICEBOX or another caddy and put your own drive in. I was pricing this up for a 750gb and it was around 60 quid which isn't bad at all.

It's about portability. A 3.5" drive has to be plugged into the mains somehow but a usb powered drive doesn't.

All the external HDs I've ever owned have all had external power supplies, and it's always been the thing that breaks down.

The price was £94.99 originally in that thread but I've updated the price to reflect the new price.

Edit: I've now expired the old thread to avoid confusion
#27
Some posters have mentioned their drives running hot, not sure if they are 1TB models or not.

Just to add my opinion, I've been running my 1TB drive non-stop, connected to a 500Gb LinkStation for 3 days now continuously and it only gets slightly warm on one side. Thats also including when I backed up the whole 500Gb from the LinkStation to the DriveStation which took over a day!
#28
I'm just guessing the ac adapter issue thing is the fact that once you plug all these "power bricks" in behind your desk etc, it's (fairly) difficult in some circumstances to power them off when not in use. (excluding using a special plug, 4 way etc, that switches off its "slave" sockets).

I reckon were all getting more and more concious of how much power these mini heat bricks consume when not in use, and just how many of the damn things we have round the house. If, however it was a built in PSU, there may be a mains on/off switch on the back of the enclosure which uses 0 watts when switched off.

Therefore the integral PSU could be a more greener option.

Ordered today,

Delivery time is rubbish on free deal they reckon September 4th but still for the money I was looking just for the drive itself and now I get an external housing for free to use for something else!

:thumbsup:

mine only took 2 days to arrive, despite amazon estimating 6 delivery.

That's a fair point but the problem is plugging in all those bloody supplies in a limited space as opposed to an ordinary plug. Most of my external drives have an internal PSU and I do have quite a few as I am an IT professional.
#32
Ok although I have the several external HD's I rarely have more than 2 external hd's running at the same time running on the pc so all I do is swap over the power and usb cables to whichever hard drive I need at the time. So I have spare psu, usb cables and the annoying cd software in the box. Just in case I have a failed psu (which I have never had).

My delivery time has been brought forward a week so I'm totally surprised about that so it should come on Friday. But saying that I've never had anything from Amazon deliver when expected.

We're not talkiing about external power bricks you twirp!

We're talkiing about needing a power source other than the power the USB slot can provde (5v).

You are either a total cretin or very pedantic, or possibly both :whistling:
#34
Now back to £94.99
Still not a bad price for a Samsung SpinPoint F1 1TB drive and a fanless SATA enclosure when you consider the drive alone goes for ~£85
