I read bad things about this using micro-usb and connection reliability

I would prefer the current seagate models now

I have a couple of the previous generation and have been very happy with them - however looking on Amazon the reviews seem fairly poor for this new generation. A friend asked me to recommend me an external USB hard drive and I was going to recommend this drive until I saw the reviews. I am now recommending the Seagate alternatives.

cool. however, is there not a passport edition in seagate? appears slightly bigger than the WD passport edition. Is seagate still better? the best thing about wd is it's very sleek

updated the price with VAT and delivery guys

couple of questions:
1) wd is more sleek - almost half the length that of SG
2) it appears like SG is a better brand than WD - is that so?

£85 is not a bargain price for a usb powered 500GB external drive. These latest model Passport drives were going for £60 at PC World just before Christmas, so they have jumped up in price since.

If you want a small format usb powered drive, then I would recommend the Samsung S2 Portable. The price hovers around the £60 mark and dipped below this the other week. It is, for my money, a bit better looking than the Passport and just as light and small as it employs the same integrated USB controller on the hard drive in place of SATA as the Passport.

The Passport is due for a price dip, though, so I would hold on, if you have your heart set on one.

thanks very much for the insights..
compactness, quality, features, price... which one would you say then is best... WD, SG or Samsung

these wd passports are brilliant, i got one at xmas from pcworld for 60 quid. they are so small, even smaller than an actual passport. people bang on about the lead but id rather have this type of lead than the other type anyway and the length of the lead is even better. its short but exactly the right size, especially if you use a laptop.

cant fault these at all.
