Hi, if I buy 2 to be used as mirror drives for saving my videos and pictures, it is possible to pass data from the PC to the drives at the same time with a simple click?? Do I need any special software if yes??
Thank You

If you have this Highpoint controller card

then you can RAID external usb drives off it.

I've got one of these and drive inside is: HDS5C3020ALA632 according to Hard Disk Sentinel.

Wondering if I should get another one but don't really want to risk purchasing from the same batch as I got mine from Dabs

Depends on how much tape they use when packaging.

Looks to be the cheapest way for me to get another 2TB HDD for my NAS then.

It does seem a bit absurd that the internal drive alone is more expensive to buy than with an enclosure!

I've got an old Samsung Story Station 1.5tb that I've tried to open up to get to the drive inside, found some instructions online. Looks simple but I just cannot get the drive loose. Very frustrating, so if you're after an internal drive just get an internal one to save yourself the hassle. I think I read someone broke a knife trying to open their Hitatchi.

.

I had wondered about that recently too. Well the guy in the video linked above says that the internal drives are currently more expensive because of the increased demand still for internal drives since the floods in Thailand which affected many of the factories. Less demand for external drives for new PC builders.
Seems a fair point.

Good price for a useful household back up. Heat added.
I have the 2TB Pro version also from Dabs.-
I use it to weekly W7 back up 2 Laptops via wi-fi and 1 desktop via USB3.
