Probably nothing

Seems a good price
#4
good price! Thanks
#5
Nice, the USB case is worth £10 without the drive
#6
Seems an excellent price

Anyone know if this auto powers down when not in use? Does it have a power switch?
#7
no power switch on my Iomegas
I dont get why its an issue folks ask about?
when the PC is on i want access to all my drives.isnt everyone the same?
#8
A real luddite question but could my son connect this to his netbook and play any games direct from it if they were installed from a PC (if this even makes sense)

**edit** or to put another way if he installed games onto this from his main PC could he then connect the drive to the netbook and play them on that?

the games would still need to be installed on the netbook itself.
#10
Ah ok thanks for that - I think he was mainly thinking about World of Warcraft!
#11
good deal, seems same drive is on amazon for £75

Comet seems to be the cheapest for this. bit odd it says saving of £1.99 tho lol

@ custardy normally i would agree but after having bad experience with a few externals with PSU's going then I would always look for something with a switch so when need the drive got pop on a power switch at the back.

Is it USB powered or does it need a AC mains brick

Mains (all 3.5" Externals are).

I've connected an external hard drive to my netbook before and installed games directly to it through the netbook and it works fine, but he will need to do it through the netbook and not from the desktop first.

Nothing special for a 3.5" USB 1TB drive, this has been the going rate for the past 12 months.

Cheapest 1 TB around

Got one of these the other day. Used it to do a full system backup before wiping and reinstalling the OS on my laptop. Behaved itself perfectly.

Sure, you can get similar drives for this price online, but it's a good price for a high street/retail park job.

i have an old iomega 500gb it has an on/off switch which i like because i only store backups like pics and vids which i only want to access now and then
#23
It does not have an on/off switch but you can take the power lead off. Here is a trick for keeping it near it's plug which I use on several devices. Take the little stiff thin black wire that is used for wrapping cables out of the box. You can also use other thin wires or strings. Tie one end tightly to the grooves near the jack head of the power lead and the other end similarly to the grooves near the data cable jack with some slack in between. Now when you take it off it won't fall off and disappear and will always be near it's slot.

One of the thinnest (non-briacky) 3.5" boxes I've seen. Forget Iomega box label, inside it is a Hitachi. It's been great and quiet for the last month I've used it.

Yeah right... as if! Find me a £45 external 1tb deal post a year ago, idiot.
#25
Just picked one of these up....

If its anything like the other 1tb iomega external drive i have, it will power down when not in use. (either if the machine its connected to is powered off or powermanagement is set to shut down USB ports)

ill confirm it shortly when its plugged in :)
#26
a year ago even internal 1 tb was about 50 as far as i remember......

For those who has the energy saving plug thingy,

I have plugged mine 2 to peripherals socket on the Energy saver plug thingy which was free from EDF energy so when my pc is powered off it shuts all the other pc peripherals off ,
#29
TRUE,

even now 1tb internal sata drives cheapest I have seen around £40 so this is a very good deal.

Good deal, voted hot. Is it any better than the Hitachi external drive also at £44.99? The Hitachi is damn ugly tho!
#31
If you want one of these without the mains power brick (http://uk.insight.com/en-gb/productinfo/hard-disk-drives-external/BNGA072UJ), it'll cost you more, but it's really good :)
#32
Reserved Online and picked up instore.

Using it to seperately backup my WHOLE system, just my Photos, and keep random stuff on with 3 Partitions. Disk Utility claims its a Samsung Drive inside, and I'm quite happy to pay the £10ish for enclosure etc.

Quite fast too, Backed up 5.58Gb in 7 Minutes, and well built, doesn't feel cheap and plasticky.

Hot from me, might even pick up another for the parents

How does this compare to similar drives?

Would I be best spending £5 more to go a Western Digital Elements 1Tb drive, or is there really not much difference?
#35
I see no difference

Anyone who's bought this, Is this a 7200rpm drive of 5400?,
Also are they sasmung F3 or an Hitachi drives inside?
#37
Interesting.. Mine is a Hitachi Drive.. a 7k1000.c to be more precise so its a current-gen model.. 7200rpm and 32mb cache.
To buy the drive on its own would be 40 quid.. so a fiver for the enclosure is a good deal.
Seems a shame to have such a fast drive stuck running USB

Interestingly the specs seem to vary from site to site with alot of them listing it as a 5400rpm drive. even the box says 8mb or greater cache so its probably luck of the draw as to what drive you get. (although performance will be no different as USB is too slow)
