Think they meant USB 2.0 is required.

Ordered mine, H&R

Seems more sensible.

Not sure about the "Youll also benefit from increased security by saving all your personal information to this hard drive rather than directly to a computer."...! Saving personal data to a portable device is never safe!

ive got the 320 gb version of this drive, it came with a usb lead and a power adapter. But i can confirm that it wouldnt power up through my usb 1 socket. it had to be my usb 2.0 socket. It has a nice orange light on the spine which illuminates when its on. :

So as long as the PC has USB 2.0 then you just need the 1 cable...?
#12
Is this one an older version because the design on the seagate website looks different...

It needs two ports for the power via one cable - it splits in to two full-size USB connections at the PC end. My Philips caddy does this, along with a good proportion that support larger 2.5" drives.

It's due to the mA capacity that only one USB port uses and these modern 2.5" drives exceed that easily.

Reasonable price tho the 2 ports could be a pain for some.

Happy with my WD 320Gb posted here the other day which is single port and only a bit more expensive per Gb

Warm deal from me

I shoved the 320GB WD Scorpio 2.5" in the above mentioned Philips caddy (<£10) for a similar result.

The drive might work fine on one port (mine does on the face of things), but if it has two, use them both imo.
#16
This is indeed an older model of their 2.5" external HDDs as someone pointed out and the reason why it is probably on offer.

Their new ones (which I have bought) are very modern and sleek, this is more 1970s fashion as its brown with a flashing stripe at the side when in operation.

But buy with confidence. Seagate are the worlds top HDD makers, and their drives are very well reviewed. I have seen this drive in the flesh and although not as compact as many of the newer models, it contains a really good drive.

A good buy for those that need to backup some data.
#17
I've had one of these for a couple of years now, and whilst they are good value they have thrown a couple of wobblys. 99% of the time it's been great, but on 2 occassions it appears to have lost all data- the recovery of which is suggested by Seagate to pay ~£60 for their proprietary revocery software (I used a free 'discdoctor' with success). Looking at the forums when this happened I noted that a lot of people had this type of error.
All in all I'd say a good deal, but don't keep anything too prescious on it just in case (as is the case with any drive?).
P.S. it doesn't need 2 usb ports- it uses USB2.0, and it does look pretty good.
#18
thanks darthchaffinch, was going to get one but not sure now..


can it automatically store you microsoft outlook?
#19
i was about to order it but think ill wait for newer version and pay little extra had hard drive fail and its time consuming trying to get data back
#20
Thanks, ordered :-)
#21
There is no guarantee that a newer HDD will not fail compared to this.

HDDs are incredibly complex pieces of technology, and considering what actually goes into making them they are generally very very reliable (if only our cars, mobile phones, TVs, etc were half as reliable).

This model is only just out of date, and some of the technology in newer models would be very similar. A lot of changes would be cosmetic only.

When you see posts like this, you will always get some coming on saying they had bad experiences, but that can apply to anything electrical. I have had Seagate drives in the past and they have never let me down.
#22
I have a few of these drives already.

Just to clear it up, you get one lead, it has one mini usb port into the drive and it splits into two "normal" usb plugs.
One is data+power, it says on the actual plug, the other is power.

If you have usb 2.0, no problem, just use the data+power plug, if you find that the drive doesn't boot up, just plug the power plug in.

I've had mine for a good year now, I'm not kind to them, they are tough little ******s and still surviving.

Might snap up a few more.
#23
Good price. Might've been tempted by it had I not bought the Passport on Amazon. Then again, I am very happy with the Passport I've bought before, and they all seem to power on one USB port fine.
#24
Good find - I need one to replace a LaCie hd that only occaisionally powers on (once it does, its fine but will often take half a dozen on/offs to fire it up).

Voted hot.
#25
