Looks good to me, I'm very tempted. Will wait to see what the boffins say before I order though ;-)
Voted hot

I got one on them a few weeks ago before they were sold out, Great Drive , very fast and responsive and very quiet also. No on/of switch on it like the Buffalo I have but Hey at that price it's a steal

Go get one :thumbsup:
#3
These things just keep on coming down and down! Great price.

I paid £110 about 2 years ago for a maxtor 160gig drive and its still going strong.

Ideally I'd like to be able to plug 1 of these into a divx playing dvd player, am I right in thinking most players that can do this need the drive formatted to FAT32, if so is there any downside to doing this if I also use the drive with my PC - infact is it possible to conect 1 of these drives to both a pc and a dvd player?

Lastly, does it have a powerlead or just usb (as I think most dvd players need 1 with a seperate power lead)

Damn this is confusing :?

Hi bod emrys

That will certainly work in a player such as the Philips 5960. However, you won't be able to simultaneously connect it to your PC and the DVD player, since a USB client can only connect to one host, I'm afraid.

But plugging/unplugging it wouldn't be too much of a problem, would it?

This device will have a separate power-lead. I don't know of any non-2.5" externals that are USB powered.

Good price!

Hot.
Heat and rep added

I bought a previous 'Hot Deal' off here (the maxtor OneTouch III 60GB) which I formatted to FAT32, but my 5960 wouldn't recognise it. I think it tries to draw to much power.

Should have read here.

If it's externally powered you should be ok.

Thanks for that, a very helpful post. Rep left :thumbsup:
I'm off to see if there's enough money in my account.

It's a smashing deal but personally I'm only buying 500Gb devices or better from now on - I can't see the point in drawing down power for anything less
#16

You can use this on the dvd player but it will only work as usb 1.0 so a large film may judder. Also you will need to format into fat32. This only allows 32gb of hard drive to be used by dvd players so remaing will need to be partioned and used on your pc or laptop as a normal hard drive. Hope this helps.

I formatted my 320gb external into just one 320gb FAT32 partition, I had to use third party software and not Windows to do this of course.

Do you mind telling me which 3rd party software it was (PM if its not allowed on public forum). Also will this then allow all 320gb to be used on the dvd player?

Thanks in advance mate!

USB 2.0 will definitely be better as transfer rate between your computer and the hard drive will be upto 40x quicker!:thumbsup:

Damn, these have come down in price dramatically. I bought this drive for £62 from currys and thought that was an ace deal, but £44 beats that (obviously!). I'm very happy with mine and I've never had an ounce of bother with it and data transfer is fast enough. I'd highly recommend it!

Being able to format a drive bigger than 120GB with FAT32 means ****** all. Just wait till you have 130GB of data on the drive and it starts overwriting the old data due to wrap around on the FAT table..... Been there, done that and happily moved onto NTFS.

And anybody with USB1.1, don't bother. You'll die of old age before its copied 10mb of data.

Thanks...grabbed one and voted hot....

Unforunately NTFS will not work with USB dvd players. Would I be better getting a 120gb hard drive or shall I buy this and partition it? Cheers.
#30
There are no external drives that work with Vista, properly. This is becasue of the software that some of these companies are using. Backing up from Vista is ok as long as no file is over 4gb, so if you intend to upgrade to Vista, bear in mind it might not work as you would expect it too with earlier versions of Windows.

I can't believe how many of these Ebuyer have sold. 891 in stock from my original screen-grab and only 529 left now. Ebuyer must be making mountains of cash from Google Checkout.

Ebuyer margins are tight - they would be making a lot less than you might imagine

Yeah I know, just giving a warning as trying to use a disk over 120GB with FAT32 is a surefire way of losing/corrupting data. Partitioning would probably work, but as I don't know how the USB players work i'm not sure how much/many of the partitions would be readable or the size limit.
#34
ordered - thanks op
#35
Ty 4 this needed another external harddrive and this is just the job:thumbsup:
#36
can u have these harddrive sittin horizontally & is the stand removeable?
#37
Can anyone confirm if these are Mac compatible?
#38
Not bad to store bits and bobs, however i'd never trust anything important on a maxtor drive.
#39
To balance the view a little, I've personally used various hard drives over the years, including at least 5 Maxtor drives (currently still using 2 of them, th eoldest being 4yrs old) and never had a single one fail on me. I've also put Maxtor drives into 5 other PCs for people and none of them have failed, these range from 6 months old to almost 5yrs old. Also had them in PCs at work and none of them have failed.

I know people talk about Maxtor drives being a huge problem - if you lose your data then it can be if you don't have a proper back-up. I can only speak from my own experience and Maxtor have been fine for me!

Cheers,

B.

I've got an old 20GB Maxtor drive, 5400 rpm manufacture date 12 September 2001. Still going strong:thumbsup:
