    Very nice.
    Bought one a few months back at same price (Don't think these will go down anytime soon)
    Used for my kid's Wii
    Heat added :)

    Am curious to know please why £70 for 1TB is better value than this 2TB one for £80 with an easily available code?

    This deal is USB 3, the one at Tesco is USB 2 - that is the only difference I can see.

    1TB is 'portable': runs off power from usb port instead of sepearate power adaptor and is much smaller in size (2.5" vs 3.5" drive)

    Good deal, think it was posted a few days on here though...

    edit here it is, they've put the price up since then

    Thanks for the suggestions folks. I'm just a bit confused because, looking at the ebuyer site, the main differences between these two drives is 3.5" and powered for the 2TB and 2.5" and USB for the 1TB. Both appear to be USB3, except on the Tesco site where it says the 2TB is single port powered and USB2!!! :D

    That leaves just two questions (probably) does anyone actually carry around 1TB of data and why?

    Yeh Tesco often get their specs wrong, however 'desktop' and 'Internal Hard Drive Size (in) 3.5' are giveaways. Besides, portable 2TB drives cost upwards of £150 as far as I know, they've not long been out

    Bought one at this price a couple of weeks ago for my new MacBook Air. Excellent drive.

    Mine arrived last week. I got it for £63 off Amazon, so I think the price still might reduce. Got it hooked up to an Airport Extreme for wireless goodness. Its a good drive so far.

    Good for wii when full of games (do you know how many games you can fit on a 1TB drive prob around 400)

    Hey, does anyone know how fast these are over USB 2.0/3.0?

    Also, would the transfers be faster from a ssd to hdd compared to hdd to hdd?

    Worth noting that these come formatted as NTFS, which is great for large files on Windows. But not good for Macs. If you need to use this on both PC's and Macs, you will need to format this as FAT32.
    cibarious
    Thanks for the comments everyone - now I know why I don't need one. :) Don't play games or carry my music or films around and don't even have enough data to fill 1TB.

    At least I now know why 1 in the pocket is worth more than 2 in the drawer! ;)

    p.s. are there really more than 400 games for the Wii?? oO

    a usb 3 device should in theory transfer at the maximum rate of usb 2 (35 mb/s) if you're talking about an internal ssd transferring to an external usb 2 it is limited by usb 2 speeds

    This was £66 on eBuyer a few days ago. But still a decent price.

    **** wouldnt let me use my free delivery voucher on it for some reason.

    I got this a few days ago. Seems faulty and giving me copy errors. Looks like a common thing with Hitachi. Very disappointed!
