I got the 500gb one on the last post of these for £33 odd - works really well.
No on/off switch though - just need to 'safely remove hardware' and pull out power lead.
#2
These devices should turn themself on/off with the computer. Having said that, a switch is useful.
#4


Quite right, but I guess you can't currently get them for anything less.
#5
Is it not better for a hard to continuously run rather than being turned on/off repeatedly anyway?
#6
got the 500 gb one works great with the wii:thumbsup:
#7
Are these as good/better reliability-wise than the 1Tb Hitachi?

[FONT=Verdana]The 10% off discount code ([COLOR=Navy]10HD[/COLOR]) brings it down to [COLOR=Navy]£53.99p[/COLOR].

Edit - There's the possibility of 3% cashback ([COLOR=Navy]£1.61p[/COLOR]) as well via the following but may not work due to the use of the discount code.

The Hitachi drives are better. Nice and quiet, lower power, cooler. Just generally better technically.

Personally I've had a couple of bad experiences with Iomega external hard drives, so I tend to stay away from them these days.

You could say that about most electronic products. But at the end of the day when you power off a PC or Laptop the hard disk goes off, so it would be nice if these did too, hence there is no need for a switch unless it's being used on a router for a NAS.

Seagate or Samsung inside.

What do you use it with the Wii for? To download those 4 demo's? lol
#14
is this network enabled anyways thanks for sharing
#15
I find the 500 gig one a bit on the slow side, not looked as yet to see what the speed is, but the on/off buttons not much of a problem - runs all night anyway

Titty 5548 - How do you get games to load off a wii through Hard Drive. Mine is chipped with a Waspkey but I generally use discs.
#18
10% off if you use the code 10HD.

59.99*0.90= 53.99, three pounds cheaper than the last 1tb deal IIRC:)

Does this have it's own power supply or is it powered by the USB connection?

It's 3.5 inch, therefore it can't run off USB alone.

this particular one has a samsung drive inside
#24
I have this drive, mine contains a Samsung HD103SI EcoGreen F2 5400rpm drive, which despite the low rpm speed, seems as quick as any other drive I have. The enclosure is very plasticky and cheap looking though, and no on/off swich.

I've a 1tb raid station thing here by Iomega and it has 2 seagates in it.

Very good drives those.
#26
these are bargain basement spec

as described, no power switch and are def audible, my first one died and having replaced it under warranty id def not recommend using them to store anything important.

The Samsung drive in mine is silent. This hard disk will set you back about £65 as a oem bare drive, so considering you get an enclosure, power plug and usb lead for at least a tenner less, this has to be hot.

i bought 3 of these last night from the Reading/Madejski Comet
all 3 had different HDDs in which is really disappointing as was trying to get 3 the same

1 Samsung - the box has a S/N thbk 3xxxxx
2 Seagate Barracuda 7200.12- the box has a S/N thbk 3xxxxx
3 Seagate Barracuda LP - the box has a S/N thbk 4xxxxx

unfortunately they only had 4 in stock 2 x S/N thbk 4xxxxx and 2 x S/N thbk 3xxxxx, might pick up another 1 see what thats got in it

#30
Mines came with that Samsung F2 drive and it is completely silent.
#31

#32
is there a way to get the 10% discount and collect at store, or did I miss it?

not at all, you can collect from store at the discounted price if they have it in stock
note that i dont think they pick the item in advance like they often do at PCworld so there is the slight possibility that someone might have bought the last one before you get there

click collect from instore link
add the promo code 10HD in the promo code box (easily missed as its not that obvious)
enter your postcode
choose your local store
print out, wait 30 mins (as there system isnt the quickest)
go and collect

job done

Nice one, thanks :)
#35
Finally got one, after jumping through various hoops from incompetent Comet staff. Thanks OP!
#36
Picked one of these up on Saturday. Took the HDD out, which is a Seagate ST31000528AS (7200.12), put it in my desktop PC and all was well....until 15 minutes ago when it started making a loud clicking sound and appears to be in its death throes. :x

Now I'll have to try and put the enclosure back together convincingly enough to return the damn thing, managed to break a couple of the internal plastic clips opening it..
#37
Just picked one up, bargain, almost silent too. Happy Bunny
#38
price has gone up now, they're £64.99 - 10% = £58

i'm sure they go back down again at some point
