Quidco 4.5% - bargain

Or 2tb Iomega at Comet for £108 (2x £54). 2x1tb is less risky. imo. Should something go wrong, you still have 1tb of data.

You have the inconvenience of having to carry 2 hhd's, tho.

ALWAYS MAKE BACKUP's!

I've got the 1TB version of this and a great feature it has which a lot of other external drives don't, is that it powers itself off when disconnected from the USB (either via Windows/Linux or physically by unplugging). A great power saving, noise reduction and longevity feature.

Also a good feature when used with a standalone media player as when the media player is turned off it'll turn this off too.

Good price too :)

I think it's double THICKNESS :o

Weight & Size that is.

I think the most economical drives at the moment are the 1.5TB ones. 2TB over expensive, and not much difference between a 500gb and a 1.5TB.

The quidco link to Misco seems broken. Did anyone manage to access it?
#8
Does anyone know if this contains one or two hard disks?

I agree entirely with the "always make backups" comment.
If you only need 1tb of storage buy 2x1Tb and have a backup.
However there is no sense spreading your data over multiple drives; losing half your data could still be devastating and using two drives increases the chance of failure affecting you.
If you can afford it you can use multiple disks in a redundant raid format (not Raid 0) - even so you should still have a backup on a separate disk. (I know from experience that Raid systems can fail).

This is one 2TB drive.
#10
looking at the dimensions I think this 2TB Drive may contain 2 x 1TB Disks.

Can't find any reviews.
#11
Yes it is 1 drive. Are you saying the internals are one 2TB Disk?
How have you verified this and how do you explain the dimensions?

These must be the new half-size 3.5 inch drive then?:whistling:

Care to explain?
22.5 cm x 27 cm x 4.8 cm is large enough to fit two drives side by side.

Perhaps a jigsaw for crimbo might help you with the concept! Start with 4 piece ones:whistling:

Well Hitachi does a SimpleDrive (ie the family this belongs to) and a SimpleDrive Duo I believe which contains two drives, so logically this contains one.

I apologise

The hard drive case is inverse TARDIS style technology, being smaller on the inside. Infact the hard drive itself is the size of a box of raisins.

There we go. :D

Interesting reviews; (Although after reading them I'm surprised that you still thought there were two separate drives in the enclosure :whistling:)

Two drives would account for the heat and reliability issues mentioned as well as the cost.
