I thought USB 2.0 is USB 2.0, what's with the Turbo USB 2.0 interface? Can anyone explain please?
#2
all i can is what has been posted above. Turbo USB 2.0* interface, up to 25% faster than traditional USB 2.0
#3
Cold from me. You are paying more per/ GB than the ebuyerexpress eBay DOTD 1.5TB drive for £79 or the Tesco 1TB drive for £55.
#4
FYI

these drives run really hot
#5
Does this drive have to stand vertically or does the base detach so it can be horizontal?
#6
I have the 1TB version, very reliable and quick so far. The base on mine is one solid unit so doesn't seperate to store horizontal.
#7
decent price for a 2tb - even if it does look ugly as sin.

I presume it works similar to how Buffalo implement it >

"In a nutshell, Turbo USB is intended to increase the speed of connection between the USB-to-SATA converter and the internal drive, by as much as 60%. Since Buffalo can't do anything on the host side, we reckon a whole lot more cache might be added to the controller level to maximize the efficiency. Impress Japan has a first look at the Turbo USB with some in-depth benchmark. Basically, Turbo USB boosted the sequential read from 33 to 40MB/s and the sequential write from 35 to 41MB/s.

These translate to about 21% and 34% improvement in read & write performance respectively. They aren't even close to 60% jump but it's good to see some USB drives can finally reach 40MB/s. "

Would be better to get two 1gb drives in my opinion...

Worse on power consumption!!!
#11
I got this one, all 2GB has been used. Not had any issues with it. Fanless design. I paid £10 less though from scan over a month ago [with their free delivery via avforums.com offer]...
Couldn't see a way to take it apart though....

Deal is cold...

Buy the drive here for £103.99

http://www.tekheads.co.uk/product/Hitachi-Deskstar-7K2000-SATA-II-7200rpm-2TB-32MB-Cache-OEM_25249.html

Buy the enclosure from same place for £10.99

http://www.tekheads.co.uk/product/Dynamode-3.5in-SATA-to-USB-Hard-Disk-Enclosure-Silver_19273.html

They do free delivery on orders over £99.

Save a fiver and the enclosure, although crap will still be better than the junk the one in this deal will be made of not to mention there's a good chance it will be actually glued to the drive so the drive can't be removed from it.

End of the day you're better off paying around £20 for an enclosure that has eSATA ;) 4x the speed of USB2 :p

the interesting thing is that with my last turbo usb hd from buffalo surprisingly had drivers to install on the client side, not too sure why or what they do
#14
it's not outstanding value, quite ordinary. as said before 2 X 1Tb drives work out cheaper, IRL.

Err no they don't :?
#16
I've had the 1TB version of this for a couple of months and it's nearly full now and working perfectly.

Doesn't run hot at all.

Would you be able to power this through usb without the mains adapter?
#18

The actual case of the Hitachi is better than any other usb hard drive I have including Medion, Freecom, Buffalo and some other one I got.... Yes I am a GB wh0re....
