Voting hot even though I already ordered one on the strength of the original thread. Don't forget £5 quidco (I believe) as well.

I'm missing something here. Why are people buying huge drives with USB connections? Why aren't you sticking them inside and using SATA III?

not everyone has the know-how to install a HD : )

good price but only an 8mb buffer/cache.

I use large portable hard disks for off-site backups.

Personally because I have no internal bays left!

Lots of people have laptops not towers.

Backups? Portability?

TBH I wouldnt buy a hard drive without a network connection on it now. Tehn they can be accessed when the PC is off and can be stuck out of sight.

Maybe because the want portability? Movies, Music, Photos, can all be played great from a USB 2.0 drive - for me the portability and capacity far outweighs any downside of the USB 2.0 speeds/overheads vs having it mounted inside. To be honest you could choose eSATA but its not as common as USB and generally more expensive.

Good find and a hot deal from me :-)

sound like a deal

good deal, shame it cant be used with the ps3 ( i think its dimensions are too big)
#15
I use mine with my PS3. I backed up all media and files then play back through PS3 as and when.

Got this for under £64 during Christmas/New Year.

:thumbsup:

It's an external drive, but yes, if you removed it from the caddy you need a laptop 2.5" drive for the PS3.
#17
does anyone know what internal drive is used for these and if its sata or ide?
#18
Great price, ordered a couple.
#19
Why expired?

I haven't gone as far as checkout but it seems to still be in stock.

Some people on this site seem to get pleasure from expiring valid offers.
#20
Great deal, I haven't seen many 1TB drives that cheap. You can reserve and pay online then collect instore too.

PS To the chap enquiring why people use external drives - External drives are one of the top selling PC accessories because people need and use them! Many folk can't be bothered fitting internal ones, or don't have any bays left.

Personally I do a lot of video & animation production and I need to ship large files from my office to my client. It's not always practical to email 100Gb's of data!

eSATA enables an external drive to be used. You can also hang an external RAID array off the end of an eSATA connection!

dunno if it's out of stock online but I saw a display with loads of these and the 250GB's at my local tesco (galleons reach - becton) but I didn't go for it cos of the lack of a network even though it's still a bargain but my home connection is quite dispersed and it would be more value if it was stuck on my router and accesible from my laptop down stairs and desktop upstairs

don't think there's a like for like network HDD in this price range tbf - oh well
#23
Just ordered 2.

People buy external drives as laptops have outsold desktops for quite some time now...

Bought two of these to remove the drives and install into a raid array. In my case the bare drives were Seagate ST31000333AS which has a 32MB buffer. Lots of information regarding the drives can be found in the previous post.

Seems still available on line - cat no 204-6510

Don't see why this has expired, i've just ordered one for instore collection at the bargain price.

Was shopping around a couple of weeks ago and a lot of other vendors prices have gone up!!!!
