#2
amazing... ANOTHER terabyte external HDD at 80 notes...
#3
it has a good review on the site...
#4
amazing, thanks
#5
Im just amazed at how quickly HDD are becoming, I think that solid state drives are the future but this is a lot of storage for not a lot of money, I have two 750Gb drives in my PC and an external 300 GB one and they are almost all full

Not surprised, count yourself lucky you can even get Windows on a 750MB drive :p
#7
On/Off switch, nice!
#8
great price for an external 1TB, my theyve come down in price
#9
feels like they've made it look like a wii :P and that feels a bit cheap.

not anything against the hdd itself though! hot, good deal

480 Mbps is the transfer rate of a usb pen drive isn't it?

Aren't there any of these with sata connections?

I was just thinking if you use torrents and download to the flash pen, it would go faster with less stress on the hard drive. Then just transfer the completed file to main storage when you don't want to view or stream it. I just know my laptop drive sounds a bit heavy with constant use and a flash pen 'buffer' may help.

480mbps is the quoted theoretical maximum.

eSATA ones cost quite a bit more... this is cheap and cheerful for 1TB really

Silliest idea ever:

You're always limited by the slowest link in the chain:
20Mb (at most) broadband, 480Mb USB
Broadband is always the bottleneck.

Flash drives have limited write cycles - not the best idea to use them on torrents.
Flash drives are slower than hard drives in data transfer, not quicker
You won't "wear a hard drive out" by using it for torrents
#14
Good deal.

BTW. Tranfer speeds rarely exceed 260-270 Mbps for USB2.
#15
Yeah but what's the hd? Is it reliable?
#16
Fujitsu make their own drives. They have a good reputation.

I'm quite tempted.
#17
Sorry but one of the Amazon reviewers who bought this drive says it's a Western Digital drive inside.
#18
So I see:oops:

Fujitsu are one of a handful of companies that make all their own stuff... Or have until now. Perhaps this has something to do with their upcoming deal with WD.

Assuming the Amazon reviewer is right this it a bit disappointing but 3.5" drives are usually pretty reliable so I don't think it's a dealbreaker.

Well that's my point, they may be slower but are they too slow?

If I have a lot of read/write activity on the main drive it slows other things down, like watching video making it jerky. If the torrent was going straight to a flash pen it would skip the harddrive (plus it's easier to take with me if I want to watch it else where). And, side point, I think besides you Can wear out a harddrive through use, how else would you do it. Speed and noise was main concern though.
#20
Thanks. Just gone for this. The thought of losing all my work is horrid.
#21
Thanks for posting this ordered one looks best value around at the moment so many good deals:thumbsup:
banned#22
On external hard drives, is it possible to password protect certain folders. I want to get one but it will be shared and want to keep my own back up files seperate and confidential. Is this possible!!?

Many Thanks
