[FONT="Verdana"]I didn't see any technical specifications listed for the hard disk on the ebuyer website, so I did a search via Google UK and listed below is a link with the details.

Can't find the drive speed anywhere, am after a cheap 7200rpm 320gb drive for my laptop, would strip this down if it was 7200...anyone know?

My guess is 5400rpm based on this same product from Dabs:

http://www.dabs4work.com/productview.aspx?Quicklinx=54J4&CategorySelectedId=11157&fb=225&NavigationKey=11157,4

I just matched the manufacturer's part code.

I won't vote either way on this one - the price is decent I think, but having bought 2 of these portable Formacs for work (250gb versions) within a couple of weeks of use, their mini USB connectors both broke off rendering them both only useable with firewire.

Firewire working fine...so far, had them about 6 months.

Buyer beware, in future I would opt for something more robust in design (like the portable western digitals), the plastic cases of these models feels very brittle.

I have this drive, its good but does scratch VERY easily.

In an effort to keep power consumption down on the USB powered drives, I would expect most of them would be 5400RPM.

I've had a 120gb Formac for a couple of years, and it's ok.
The case gets broken easily, so mine is sellotaped together....but still working fine.

I got the 250gb portable drive from tesco the other week (iomega), and it's casing is much, much better quality.

Does anyone know if I could take the hard drive out and use it as an internal laptop drive?

Very likely, but why would you? There are better deals and better drives out there if it is for internal use.

At least if you go for this option you can use it to host the old hard disk that's been removed - just wanted to point that out for those considering this.

Hi

Does anyone know whether you can connect the portable external drives to the ps3 usb ports and transfer music and films.

Also, what is the difference between 3.5 drives and 2.5 drives.

Thanks

Yes you can connect external drives to a ps3. There is a certain method though to do with the hardrive file system but it should work straight away.

2.5 inches - smaller, portable, often runs off a usb.
3.5 inches - larger, faster, and normally comes with a power adapter connector.

Hope this helps.

Went to get this and it had become out of stock/expired.

That is twice now, same thing happened with the portable iomega tesco ones. What luck.
