eBay?!
#2
Woops, eBay isn't allowed here?
It's from the eBuyer express store!
#3
it's an ebay dotd, so it is allowed
#4
Cracking price - I dont think you could make a 1.5TB external drive for less than this. Ordered.
#5
How majorly annoying! I had a 20% off eBay voucher that expired yesterday! I could have got it down to £60!
Still, i've got £30 in my paypal account so £50 isn't bad!
#6
so tempting... except I really can't be bothered with external power supply. Still waiting for a decent priced 2.5" usb drive.
#7
Great price, works out at about £53 per TB which is about the cheapest arround at the moment.
banned#8
got mine x 3
#9
just ordered!!! needed one of these!

although i tried to post a dotd and got told i couldnt......... and i've seen a few ebay items on here!
#10
Oh dear. There are tons of awful reviews of this. Is it that bad?
#11
Better to get a 1.5tb hard drive and put it in an esata case so that you can look into installing e-sata for your pc for about £2 and enjoy about 4 times the speed transferring stuff compared to USB.

Also seems that people think this is rubbish quality and breaks http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?hl=en&q=eagate+1.5TB+External+Hard+Drive+Hi+Speed+USB&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=13100322756043343747&ei=77ywS6bmC4iF4QaezPjnDw&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=result&resnum=5&ved=0CCIQ8wIwBA&os=reviews

I'd take any reviews on a HD with a pinch of salt. There was an negative article about this drive, which had a link to the Seagate forums, and at first glance there's a long thread seemingly of people complaining about the 'click of death'. However, looking more closely at the thread, a lot of the replies are from the same people complaining over and over, so it sounds like there was a number of faulty drives produced, but then the same could be said of any HD manufacturer. If you look at the Xbox 360 (and yes I've had the red ring of death - friend's had it twice), then HD problems really are rather minor in comparison.

I've had the 1gig version for a few weeks, and no problems yet.

Same here, I ended up buying Bad Company 2 with DLC for the trade in price at Cex just to use it up.
#14
will have to check out some more reviews
#15
This is really annoying.

I ordered one of these drives from eBuyer the day, but for £6 more. I have written a letter of complaint to eBuyer, but I doubt it will get me anywhere.

No, that's the speed of the interface, not the speed of the drive. Unlikely the drive will be able to utilise the full potential speed of the interface.

+1 but it will still be a lot faster. :thumbsup:
#18
How much faster please? What's the sustained transfer rate of the disk? I bet it's not four times faster as asserted...
#19
I moved 200gig last night to this and it moved at a constant 33MB/s
#20
Thanks for measuring. Yes - unfortunately no faster than USB2, in theory at least: 480MBits/sec is 60 megabytes per second, and although there is an overhead, this does not halve the data rate.
#21
Just to report that mine turned up yesterday. I plugged it in and everything seemed to be working fine..........until I checked on it this morning when it started making a loud clicking noise. I'm trying to return this rubbish to eBuyer but they are being less than helpful. So I would avoid this garbage and look elsewhere for a 1.5tb external drive.

I have no problems with this drive - have moved about 250GB to it now and it is silent and very cool to the touch even after moving that much data in one go (about 2 hours of constant writing). Ive also only had it a day - but first impressions are very good.
#23
Mine also has the "click of death". I wish I had researched it first. Its going to go back to ebuyer. I am also getting read errors and it wont wake up from sleep.
#24
I have just completed an RMA with Ebuyer for this drive. I have copied over 1TB to it and it seems to read and right okay - even plays back 1080p files with no real issues, however I have started getting the loud clicking sound and also have noticed that if the drive has been "asleep" for a period of time and you try to read from it, it can appear to turn off and goes to not responding for 30-40 secs before then working.

Oh well :(
