Thanks edi.

Already bought 3 of these. They're very nice. Slightly longer than the WD that has appeared on HotDeals before.

Inside the device is a Samsung HM160JC drive incase anyone was wondering. Silent, light and can run off 1 USB with the option of using a 2nd USB socket for laptops that cant provide enough power on 1.

Impressed indeed. :)

Any ideas if its a SATA drive inside? If so its actually cheaper to get one of these, and rip out the harddisk to add a bigger HD to my laptop! Plus a free cady for my old one!

SATA? No way, you wish! Firstly, you can't get SATA at 160gb in this size... YET. Secondly, if you could, it would never be as cheap as this!

Using the code in device manager, this is the hard disk thats in my Lacie drive:

Info suggests if has 8MB cache not 2MB???

PS. At Komplett, this drive (without caddie) retails at £72.50 + £6 postage... so this is a very good deal :D

If you want something a little cheaper you can order the 120gb Western Digital Passport for 47.76 delivered from eBuyer using the £10 off google checkout offer.

Cheers, Jason

Hmm Im slightly hesitant about Lacie drives given the 500GB drive at work packed in after 10 months use. Are these any good?

I work with a lot of video editors who say they wouldn't use anything other than lacie. Obviously it's a hard disk so if you drop it, its dead!

Yeah the drive inside is most probably not SATA.

But sata disk in 2.5" form is widely available and not that expensive. I have 2 for use with my laptop and they are they SATA interfaces.

There are now 200GB 2.5" Sata drives available to buy which is around £120 but only runs at 4200rpm.

At 160Gb there are 7200rpm and 5400rpm ones already! :thumbsup:

Looks like eBuyer have dropped the price. I make it £63.42 now including delivery with Google checkout.

Back in stock. £57.35 delivered with Google voucher!!! I love these drives, I found that the WD 120Gb were hit and miss when put on extender USB cables and on some machines. These Lacie are perfect.

very good price, i already have two ext hds (massive music and video collection :pirate:) but i have to turn them on

i just had a look and noticed a Formac 160GB USB2.0 External 2.5" Hard Drive 8MB Cache here http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/127831 for 65.99

the lacie is only 2 mb cache, can any one tell me whats the difference and if its worth paying more for?
#16
As previously posted, i have 3 of these already and device manager says the hard drive is a Samsung HM160JC. According to Samsung own website, that hard drive has 8mb cache not 2mb.

Not sure whats going on there???

I luckily sold mine yesterday on eBay for more than this! Great drive but I sold my laptop recently so didn’t need it anymore.

You need to unplug this from a desktop system or it will stay powered on even when you turn the PC off. For laptops it powers off when you put the PC in standby or shut it down. At least that was my experience and I think its typical for desktop systems although there may be a setting in the BIOS to alter this behaviour which I found mildly annoying.

It is an option in the bios and most 2.5" drives have this problem as well as most usb devices. You just turn it off in the bios.

Thanks. Does doing that have any nasty side effects?
#20
No. Even when you turn your pc off, there still power going though the motherboard (unless turn off by the plug on wall or master power switch at rear of machine). All the option does is stops power going to usb. I suspect they leave it on in case you have rechargable wireless mice(docking station)... etc so the charge even when the machine is shutdown. Used to drive me mad, my mouse used to glow all night until I turned that option off :-D
