Nice, way too much storage for me though!
#3
This is cool as, but how much storage do you need?

Have you seen the wireless ones? for shared accomodation and large households its brilliant.

only seen a 1TB one so far, from PC world they were on sale but back up to around £160 just now.

Great idea though

good deal - depending on what you are using it for. If it is a backup device, then great. If it is the main storage, then I advise that you get some sort of RAID device.

I personally use a buffalo terastation (from play - £399) which gives you 1TB of storage in RAID 5 (750 usable) but its always backed up, so that if one of the hard drives breaks, you can just slot in another drive and hey presto - you lost nothing. Also, you can access it via a web interface from any computer and download stuff from it... stream mp3s etc...

I'm rather fond of my terastation! :oops:

I consider the Play.com one to be the more reliable make... which is important to me, as I've had a few of these HDDs die on me.

Ooh. That's only about two-and-a-half times the price for two-thirds of the storage capacity!! :giggle: Hehe, thanks for the comments. :)
#11
this is definately a single 1.5TB disc is it, and not a 2x750gig case like some of them? i imagine at the price it would be one of the new 1.5tb discs due out soon. shame it's USB2 as that will take approximately 10.5 hours to fill the drive, whereas esata would be about 6 hours

I'll be laughing when your hard drive breaks!! mwahahhaa :thumbsup:

seriously though, this is a great deal for a big amount of storage - but just consider my warning that if this bad boy breaks, then you will be left with nothing..

of course you could always buy a couple of them and hook them up and RAID them somehow I'm sure... ;-)

those ones look like 2x750gig drives, and not 1.5tb single drive, so twice the physical dimensions, and that's why they are cheaper. you could get 2 x 1TB samsun spinpoints for £85 each (£170) and add a £27 dual sata icybox caddy from scan and make a nice 2TB setup for just under £200 if you didn't mind the extra size. or use the same caddy and use a couple of cheaper 750gig drives
#14
Im sure this is going rate for a 1.5 tb drive
being new and all
but id prefer 2 buffalo 1tb setups for £179.98
extra tenner extra 500gb
#15
i wouldnt say it was too much of a bargain as ive seen 1tbs for under 100 each. you'd get more gigs per £ anyway
banned#16
rubbish! ! its like the freecom 1TB XL which had 2 x 500 hardrive's in 1 case its very heavy! ! about the same weight as a laptop if not abit more, if you want a small nice style, external hardrive then get the Freecom Hard Drive Pro 1TB eSATA USB-2 :thumbsup: or the standard freecom external 1TB
#17
Hopefully this will help nudge the price of 500Gb drives down...
#18
When factoring in price per GB don't forget that you have to pay the power for a second device if getting two 1Tb disks.

I think this is a smashing deal. HOT!

This sounds great. I'm actually after something similiar to this but with a built-in wifi adsl router - anyone know of such a device?

It makes sense to only have one box that's on 24/7 and for me that would be my normal wifi modem/router but with built in raid capability and amall linux partition to run basic processes.

I have seen such devices over the years but they're mainly in Japan or Korea and not too much in Europe - I hope someone can prove me wrong.
#24
Ah stuff like this reminds me of my desire to set up a small file server - possibly using that Mini-itx Atom board - for all my storage needs in the house. But I'm on a self-imposed no-toy-buying mission until my CC is cleared off. Darn those new windows!

Depends on your budget but a mac-mini will run Linux lovely and you can hang as many disks off t as you like in whatever raid you would like.

Ewww. and no.
I have 4 1TB drives in my mac pro holding my entire DVD, CD and HD collection, plus a host of other things.
With these I can hook up one power supply and just switch the drives over when they've filled with back ups.

The pain of losing (a now relatively meager) 320gb of transferred music which involved supreme organisation and effort will never depart me.

I actually watch in anticipation when connecting an external drive for it to show me the finger these days.

its not even e sata! if you gonna get a 1TB then common sense is that your gonna be transfering alot and with usb 2 its kinda slow e sata is the best! ! shame this drive dont have that connection, get a freecome 1TB with usb 2 and e sata and its small light stylist all for £150

Yeah we get your damn point. One post would have been more than enough.

Well not really because someone said they bought 3 x of this hardrive and he said he transfers alot so i adviced him on the e sata! ! if you even know what that is? lol :thumbsup:

if this really is a 1.5TB single disc for £170 in an external casing, i wonder if the drive on it's own will be about £150, which is a reasonable price. sure a 1tb drive is £85 now, so £170 for 2tb, or the equivilent of £127.50 for 1.5tb, and the price will probably fall a bit when the 1.5tb drives come out, but it's a relatively small premium for that bigger size if you need it, and personally i'm looking for one as i have a 1tb drive thats nearly full and i have to have some of my data on another drive, when i'd prefer it all on one single drive for more convenience. i have my data backed up twice, both on and offsite, so i'm not too concerned if a single disc fails. with all the many discs i've had in the past 15 years or so i've never had a single drive fail, i've had very old drives go wonky after literally many years of non stop hard use, but i've managed to still be able to read data from them, and even then i never kept anything on old drives that wasn't backed up or was important

so roll on 1.5tb barebones drives at £150, stick in a esata icybox for £20 and you have a superfast esata 3mbps large external drive

currently have a bloody heavy lacie double dick 1tb, cant stand the noise it constantly makes. was really tempted by this new coming external single drive. but your idea sounds better since it gives the option of esata,although my laptop doesnt have an esata but it might come handy in the future.I used to use an icybox years ago and liked it a lot.here's a question if you dont mind, what web site do you suggest to buy the 1.5TB hard drive and icybox?

the new 1.5TB Seagate ST31500341AS Barracuda is not in stock yet, any idea when?
I like the IB-380-STUS-B better but worry about the noise it might make, anyone got some experiene at all?I have an 1TB Lacie Bigger Disk Extreme which is very heavy and constantly makes intolerable noise so I really want to get a quiet one and get rid of the noisy one.

out of stock at the mo. soon as these are in I think I'll be grabbing two. Voted hot. thank you.

http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=788371

i got that icybox for £20 from scan, it's solid metal, no fan, and it comes with the esata cable, so good value for money

i don't have esata on my laptop but was considering one of the two dual port 2sata expresscards scan have at £16 and £17ish. the cheaper is mac compatible and pc, the second has raid. so add that to your laptop and it should make a fair difference over USB2 and even firewire if you have a mac

i think the esata capable external caddies don't suffer from the size limitations that some USB caddies have, as it's pretty much sending the signal straight to the pc, thus i presume you could stick the 1.5tb drive in and that will work. certainly the icybox above works perfectly with my spinpoint T1 1TB drive

i think i might be going for one of these when it's out as my 1TB is full and the extra space would help a lot and i have a use in mind for a 1TB drive so kills 2 birds with one stone

http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=869581

£130 for 1.5tb is the same price per gig as the £85 1tb drives!

great idea about the expresscard, http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=676511
never thought about it at all. but I reckon the speed wouldn't be as good as a real esata port.
just sent an email to scan about the compatibility between 1.5TB + Icybox and the noise level from the icybox with fan.got email back two hours later saying: ''Once the 1.5TB HDD's are released please contact us again for confirmation, the noise level of the fan's inside the caddies are unknown''
hope the 1.5tb hard drive and expresscard to be released soon.

even if it can't handle full speed, it will still be faster than USB2 and your current laptop internal drive I'm sure

i wonder when the 1.5tb drives are coming out. i've already replanned my system to take one into consideration!

You need faster writes than USB2?
