Compact and sleekly designed, the Maxtor OneTouch 4 is the portable hard drive that can attach to just about any computer. With guaranteed compatibility with Windows XP, Vista and Apple MacOS X (10.4.7 or later), this external USB hard drive is the right companion to carry your essential data while on the move. Ready to work with both USB 1.1 and the high speeds of USB 2.0, you can transfer files to and from your computers rapidly....

Saw this whilst browsing for the Linksys WAG160N Wireless and thought it worth posting. £92.81plus £3.99 delivery (plus quidco) looks to be the cheapest I've seen for a 1TB Hard drive. I note reviews of Maxtor drives and 1TB drives is flakey though.

Was just about to post this! Luckily I did a search first...

The price really should include postage though, voted hot.


Don't forget 4% Quidco!
#2
Naughty! How much is postage? Any more than £2.29 then the Buffalo from Amazon is a hotter deal.
#3
£3.99 delivery from description but possible £3.71 Quidco if you're confident in that.

Amazon for £94.99

Misco £96.80 (£93.09 after Quidco)

Hi, does anyone know which would contain the better hard disk - this or the Buffalo? I've heard Seagate is the best brand?
Thanks

this is worth the few extra £'s (if you work it out that way) imho just cus its the maxtor brand. I've been buying there stuff for years and I always regret buying other branded external HDDs when I do just to save a bit of money.

I think someone talked about NAS drives as they will be the way to go. with sky multimedia center made by Pace coming. Look up the Buffalo link i think someone has posted the info on NAS. or was it western digital 1 tb book post.

I am being lazy, cant be bothered to browse.

If you do find a good 1tb NAS drive let me know...

So far i believe Maxtor 1TB with RAID 1 NAS are on the market.. unfortunately, RAID 1 could be a waste of time..giving you only 500gb space. so dont know if it can be turned off.

Seagate are generally seen as the best brand of drive - but normally as they have a 5 year warranty.

I would have said Samsung was the best drive - until recently there seems to have been many problems with their terabyte drives. Samsung currently features as the best drive on the PC Pro 'A list'.

The least reliable drives I have had have been maxtor then fujitsu - but maxtor worst by miles (I run a server (with IDE RAID) hosting UK TV programmes which runs 24/7).

'Which' magazine found the One Touch 4 drive (500 gig version) to be the best buy - and awarded it 5 out of 5 starts in all 3 judged catagories.

The Best Buy Maxtor OneTouch 4 is a very good hard drive that's easy to use and works well.

The drive is called OneTouch because pressing the button on the front of the box sets in motion the backup software that comes supplied on the accompanying disc.

The OneTouch software backs up the sections on your computer that contain your personal documents such as photographs, word documents, spreadsheets and so on. This makes it useful for simple backup of your personal files but it's not suitable if you want to carry out a full backup or take a complete mirror image of your computer's hard drive.

If this is what you're planning to do, you'll need to invest in some additional backup software. Alternatively, you can select the 'Plus' version of the Maxtor drive which is aimed more at business users but does come with software that includes additional backup features.

Pros: The drive is quick and easy to use

Cons: The shape of the drive means you can't stack it

External hard drives provide additional storage for your computer. They’re also a great place to store a copy of your important data such as photos or key documents.

High capacity hard drives are also capable of storing a complete back up of your system so that, in the event of a failure of your computer’s hard drive, you can effectively press a button and restore everything. This is known as disaster recovery.

If you’re looking for a high-capacity drive for extra storage and backup, consider a desktop drive. These are mains powered and are designed to sit next to your computer. They’re typically connected via a USB or FireWire connection.

Portable hard drives are a good choice for those wishing to transfer data from one computer to another. They’re small, light and generally they take their power from the computer rather than the mains. It’s possible to find high capacity portable drives, but don’t expect to find portable drives matching the highest capacity desktop versions.

A good external hard drive will be easy to set up and use. If it’s a portable drive, we look for good construction and robustness. Drives that can transfer large amounts of data quickly are rated highly.

So basically this suggests that it's all much of a muchness? You find Maxtor have been the worst yet it gets top marks elswhere. Samsung used to be good but no longer.

Hmmm. I think I'll have to try and find a seagate.

Many thanks for the advice. I've added rep. :)

I've ended up buying a 750GB seagate external drive from ebuyer - I think it was about £75 delivered. I like the fact that you get a 5 year warranty...makes me feel a bit more secure having once lost everything on a drive before. Best thing is just to have two copies of everything I guess...which this big drive should hopefully allow me to do! I know we're all bargain hunters on here but I think when it comes to this kind for thing it should be worth paying the extra few pounds...that's how i weighed it up anyhow! Cheers for the advice all.
