Great price but really recommend that you **DONT** buy this. I ordered one when I posted this:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/511165/seagate-1tb-external-hard-drive-61-

I really regretted it, lasted 2 weeks before the "Click of death" started, apparently this is a common problem with these drives. It wasn’t even being moved around, just sitting on my desk so no impact damage. Amazon did refund though.
Not voting either way.

pity there is no power switch :roll:

i hate USB drives that are 'always on' when connected :x
#10
Whats a 2 year "limited" warranty ?
#11
Sorry, had to vote cold. The price, on the face of it, seems very good, but there is a definate issue with the quality of this run of drives. I would not recommend this drive to anyone as i've either been very unlucky, or the 3 units i had all had the same fatal issue. Avoid

If it had a power switch it would still be 'always on' until you switch it, and you might just aswell pull the plug out the back.
The feature missing for it not to be 'always on' is related to the controller and device it is connected to shutting the drive down.

Could you go into more detail, what drive is used inside? and if it's definately a drive failure, controller or PSU ?
#14
Just had the click of death on my Seagate Freeagent 500gb, won't be buying another Seagate!
#15
I am reading up on HDD with the intention of buying at Xmas, and have heard nothing but bad news about Seagate and their Click of Death. (Possibly more harrowing than it sounds, but still..)

Cant imagine its a good deal when you compare price against reliability.

HI All

Just a thought here, is it def the drive that was going wrong for you...I got the click on my iomega, and actually found that it was the power cable.

In fact I even posted on here for advice. The click click sound was just like I got on my old PC before it died - anyway I changed the power cable and its been working ever since and that was over 12 months ago

I am after one, so keen to get feedback, but certainly this opened my eyes to the possibility of the cable being faulty and not providing the right power

Can not confirm the drive make i'm afraid (read somewhere that they were maxtor as Samsung had acquired them) but the unit starts clicking all the time and then the drive fails resulting in loss of data.

can't comment anything on this drive in particular but all my computer life I had Seagates and none failed on me

considering the value of my data these days and also the small difference in price between drives I would only buy Seagate 7200.12 series and Western Digital Caviar Black, both I think come with 5 years warranty, if you want to make it external buy a separate enclosure and put the drives inside :whistling: not a complicated job anyone can do it

As Gold Feet says, iomega use the Seagate ST310005 28AS in the caddy.

To those who posted this unit has failures, what model is inside the case?
