Whats the difference between usb2 and the normal usb? And how do yo know if you've got a usb2 port?
#2
All newer computers and laptops should come with USB 2.0 ports, pretty standard now, quicker speeds when transferring is my guess.
#3
Yep, USB can't work with USB2 only devices but USB2 is backwards compatible with USB

Basically all it means is USB2 is quicker and if you don't have it you could pick a card up for pretty cheap and is well worth it
#4
USB = 12 Mbs Sec Max data transfer rate

USB2 = 480 Mbs Sec Max data transfer rate

Although these are not the transfer rates your actually get.

Now £88.23p delivered :) Nice find edi

To check if you have USB 2, look in your device manager at the bottom where you should see something like 'Enhanced' or 'high speed' USB if you have USB 2.0 support.

Very nice deal, just forked out 150 odd for a 160GB laptop hard drive but I'm tempted to pick this one up.

Nice find Edi

This kind of setup is perfect for simple regular backups for someone using a laptop like john, or for storing photos.
Another point is the 16MB cache that the drive uses means it will find and transfer data more quickly.

the only downside i can see with this is the tight fitting construction of the drive case may let the drive get too hot. and the hotter your hard drive gets - the shorter it's life will be. :( (the voice of experience)

That's correct - these are maximum transfer speeds. Actual speed will depend on any other tasks the computer is doing at the time.

dabs have the same drive for £82.23.
They also have some nice Western Digital drives for good prices eg 320Gb for £95. The advantage of those, for me and my Mac, is that they have Firewire connections - 400Mb/s sustained transfer rate.

The price after delivery at Dabs is £88.23 which is the same price as Amazon.

Thanks for the info though Nickygoat and welcome here! I agree with you on the Firewire bit, I bought a 320GB USB2 drive and it takes me forever to backup to it compared to an old Firewire drive I had.
