"As USB port on my drive got broken as soon as I tried to put cable in, I just opened ( ripped ) the case and ... some good news. Inside is st2000dm001 which according to seagate website is 7200 rpm, SATA 3 ( 6Gb/s ), 64MB cache model. "

shunter#3
Ordered, thanks..
Quids#4
Is this the one with the click of death? Hot anyway, but would prefer to avoid the CoD models.

Just ordered one. Seems the cheapest USB 3.0 2TB drive around at the moment.

Will probably just plug it straight into my HTPC although I may go for one of the Zyxel (sp?) NAS enclosures when they are next on offer.

Teccy question. Does this connect to a standard USB port - or is it something different? Not quite sure from what is being said if cabling is different. Advice appreciated.

Same USB, backwards compatible aswell if you dont have USB 3 ports.

Great price, bought it last week for £75 delivered

yes it does

Comes with USB3 cable.
Connector on the drives is a bit dodgy - I'm going to be keeping the cable permanently attached to the drive.

I assume this is mains powered?

i.e. Desktop size external HDD rather than portable which gets all its power via USB?
Ricky#11
Yep, it's a 3.5 inch drive not a portable 2.5.

At this price though I still think it's a great deal.

Agreed! Will order one TCB lets me join!

Always wonder why these things have to be ordered online, delivered to store, and picked up from there after several days of waiting. Why don't they just put them on shop shelves so people could simply buy?

Just ordered. I assume there are no compatability issues with MAC OS and Lion? Is there a major difference from this to that of the GO Flex version?
K2T#15
Thanks for that!! Great offer for that price considering the devastation the floods have done to Thailand & the HDD world. I'm collecting mine tomorrow

Think its to promote Tesco Direct buying hence the code for 10% off for first time user only, I signed up twice to get a 2nd drive for a tenner cheaper :) Happy Days...

Ordered - great price for 2TB
Kieron#18
Do you reckon it's an alright buy to rip out and stick in my home server? Does this affect warranty in any way?

Hi Ricky,

Do you mean you will open it up and stuck the drive to your NAS? If it is, is it really possible to do? ;)

THanks.
