[FONT=Verdana]There are instances where the hard disks do die off quickly and if I remember correctly it's the 'clicking sound' that is the first indicator of this - they are a good quality build though, especially when compared to WD Essentials external hard disks which die off from power related issues or the external power supply dies.

Do you have any overheating issues? What HDD do you use? Where do you store the spare HDDs? Any other problems (such as static, ratling etc.)?

I've been recently very interested in purchasing a dock. But I want to make sure it is the best option.... I'm currently half and half between an e-Sata dock or an external HDD.

I'd got one of these if you didn't have to plug in a power supply

I just got one, really nice hard drive. Can't say about long-term issues since I just got it, but really nice feel and build quality.

I desperately needed extra storage on my laptop!

Every hard drive that I have had die on me (without exception) has been a Seagate drive. Especially the Barracuda range. Samsung, Western Digital and Fujitsu Drives have always been ok in my experience of 20 years of mucking about with PCs and hardware. Because of this I wouldn't go down the Seagate route again. The last time I was stung with them was with an external Iomega drive that had a noisy Seagate inside that had firmware that had an inbuilt flaw of killing itself. As soon as I found out what was really nestling inside the case, it went back to the shop and replaced with the same model with a WD drive inside. Much quieter, cooler and frankly less concerning than having a ticking time bomb on my desk.

Saying that I do still have a couple that are a few years old that run ok. They run loud and hot, but they are ok.

I'm not trying to harsh on this deal, but I'm just sharing my experience.

would this work with my ps3 ?

the old wd disks are brilliant - had a 250 for 7 years...the new ones are crap.....die off in 2-3 years...partly because the 500+ disks are so unreliable from most makes.....esp the 1 tb ones......i had a wd 500 my book die - was 14 months old..wd support is abysmal...came close to taking them to small claims as it took them 3 months to take notice of my 16 emails, 10 letters, phoning them was pointless unless you like waiting at least 30 mins in a queue
lacie drives are crap...dunno if they wd ones too.....mine lasted 2 weeks.....but their support was brilliant tho

I've not had any overheating issues in over a year of use, but i do keep the temp in my study at kinda inhuman levels [SIZE="1"](not a fan of the heat)[/SIZE]
i've had pretty much all my drives in at some point, from 500G WD's, Hitatchi's [SIZE="1"](< i know...)[/SIZE] and 'Cuda's, to my RaptorX.
storage is just slipped into anti static bag in my desk :) (static isn't really such a worry tbh, it's impact damage that'll kill em. so don't drop them basically)

[FONT=Verdana]Yes agree BUT the first symptoms for this model failing was excessive amounts of 'clicking' before they died off...lol

Some sata docks use the HD comb connector for connecting to the PC. Bad idea IMO, since comb connectors have a limited lifespan, and when they die, the entire HD is dead. Better use a dock with a separated connector, where the HD is connected internally to the dock's connector, which in turn is connected to the PC. When that connector wears off, you just get a new dock, but the data is safe.

Docks, however, are noisy.

IMO the best is an eSATA external drive (either prebuilt, or using a HD and a case). Same speed as an internal drive, quiet, no heating problems...

Docks, however, are noisy.


only as noisy as the drive you put in them in the first place.
and generally, it's only a bit of 'clicking' when data is being accessed, and trust me, you get used to it it just the same as you get used to the hum of the computer fans etc...

Bought one of these from Currys but on using it constantly made clicking noises, took it back the nest day and changed it for the more expensive Seagate FreeAgent drive. Much better quality for only a tenner or less.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-FreeAgent-Desk-External-Drive/dp/B001EAUKSC

But the STUPID woman at currys customer service desk was so adamant that the drive I took back wasn't faulty and had to tell her about 20 times that its making clicking noises before she left in a huff before her manager came and changed it for the Freeagent drive!

For anyones info it was Currys Enfield!

I had a Seagate 1.5TB drive in August, after just 1 hour 20 mins of use it failed with the click of death. I couldn't believe it. I went onto the Seagate forum and I was not the only one, turns out the 1.5TB was still being distributed even though Seagate knew of the problem. I for one will NEVER buy another Seagate product in my life.
#19
Good drive, I paid £54.99 with 57p back from Quidco last month from the Ebuyer/Ebay today only deal.
#20
The click of death makes this drive a no no....with other makes available for the same or less why take the chance.

I have just had a 1TB Iomega drive die on me (with Seagate inside) so would exercise caution with this brand.

Any chance of linking to this dock with 1tb built in?

Just bought one works great. Dont listen to all the moans seagate this western digital that. You would never buy anything if you listen to all the negative reviews. Clearly this company has sold tens of thousands of these. Some may fail, thats life all products will suffer some bad eggs along the production line.
Anyway - formatted 800gb to FAT32 for the Ps3 and 150Gb NTFS and is working nicely.
It is nice and quiet and sleek looking For a cheap 1Tb drive look no further.
