I have the 1.5tb version of this drive and i've been very impressed with it! Pretty quiet, and kinda retro in its looks, with the revolving dial power switch.

Not sure what the Warranty is on this, WD have two years, so maybe worth taking into consideration, when trying to decide between the two. This has a on/off button and the WD doesn't, WD is very quiet too. Happy with all my WDs

I hv the 2TB WD hooked up to my WD TV Player & it works a charm. I also hv WD Passports & wld recommend WD as a great brand without any hesitation......

I can vouch for the 1.5 TB version of these - pretty much identical, apart from the size.

I've had WD before, and Iomega, but these are very quiet, very good to look at, and much nicer to use.

Got both of these models in 1.5TB capacities and I have been more impressed with the Samsung drive - it has a metal casing as opposed to the plastic of the WD, so it will offer better cooling as well as durability. Also the fact that Samsung can be turned off completely is a very good option and although it has a light at the front it is a lot less distracting than the WD which has a flickering blue activity light which does get annoying if you are sitting in partial darkness.

However if space is tight I would plump for the vertical standing Buffalo 2TB JustStore:

:-) gets further complicated ..
#13
If it helps the speeds of these vary a lot if I was gettig one it would be out of the WD or Seagate. I just use my WD hard drive and plug it in the TV then wedge it in the wall bracket to keep it there :D

WD 7200RPM
Buffalo 4200RPM
seagate 7200RPM
Samsung 5400RPM
#14
segate it is for me :-) thnx paulsssss
#15
Disc spinning speeds have no direct correlation to read/write speeds. This will be limited by usb2 anyway. 5400 rpm drives could be quieter though.
#16
Also.... In my opinion WD and Samsung drives are much better than seagate ones.
#17
I bought the WD one earlier based on recommendations and reviews from amazon. Both are similar price and people say good and bad about both makes so don't think there's much in it really. I think whatever you choose you'll probably be happy with.
#18
whats the warranty on the samsung one?

how is this seagate one? -[url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.co.uk%2FSeagate-Expansion-External-Hard-Drive%2Fdp%2FB002I3BINU%2Fref%3Dwl_it_dp_o%3Fie%3DUTF8%26coliid%3DI25ELIH4564DT0%26colid%3D2GABL0MCGFO48] http://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-Expansion-External-Hard-Drive/dp/B002I3BINU/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I25ELIH4564DT0&colid=2GABL0MCGFO48[/url]

i get 33read 27write with a 2tb seagate - think most are similar due to usb limitation. (get 32read 27write on a portable drive with lower rpm too)

Gone for this one as my current WD portable HDD has been perfect and I now need something to store the contents of three full hard drives on to :)

Not sure why people ask for USB 3 on external HDDs as it offers no practical performance increase. I'd rather save money with USB 2.

Also I see the 5400rpm spin speed as an advantage as it also doesn't degrade performance, but it runs quieter, cooler, and uses less power.

wut? if your PC or whatever has usb3 then ofc a external drive runs alot faster.
#23
any info on warranties on all the above discussed Hard drives? it's hard to find that info.
also if something was to go wrong who deals with the problem - amazon or the manf co?

Three years Samsung warranty, but Amazon will probably replace if it fails in the first 12 months.

How is this hot?! 2tb external drives are £71 in Dixons now, and this one is a 5400rpm

Doesn't degrade performance? Simply not true.
