Gosh, the design of this is so fantastic it deserves to be on a shortlist for the Turner prize, when stacked up randomly as a pile. The price is also very cheap. ..hot.

Firstly the vouchers 2 posts above yours and secondly when its £3 cheaper than the one you've suggested WITHOUT the voucher or quidco seems kinda odd to say its cold.

Hot for me!

Just wish I had any money left to buy one!!! :cry:

I got one of these about 6 months ago for £108 (CCLOnline)

The design is excellent, its very quite and have had no problems with it.

LED on the front is very bright blue (maybe a bit too bright at night), or red/blue when writing to the disk.

I'd definitely reccomend this.

Does it require a power socket? or can run straight through USB? and is CDiscount reliable?! Thanks :)

It's a 3.5" hard drive, i.e. mains-powered. The small, USB-powered 2.5" variety doesn't come in sizes bigger than 500GB at the moment.

As for Cdiscount, it's the online branch of French no.2 retailer Casino Group and they've been around for years in their home country so definitely one to trust. In France they have a history for delivering late but here they must have a brand new infrastructure so it shouldn't be such a problem, but on the other hand they're well known for their very good prices. I'm happy to see them coming over, they'll definitely give eBuyer, Play, Dabs, Scan and the rest a run for... our money.

When will these bloody companies realise that you can have all the storage in the world but if I have to physically move it between machines it's useless.

Stick a Ethernet port on the back, it really can't be that hard, I really don't understand why doing so pushes the price up so significantly.

Rant Over :thumbsup:

Really tempted to buy this, but I actually need one which I can connect to my wireless router via ethernet- however I can't find one at a decent price.

I'm quite tempted too but would like something I can ultimately use to stream video across my network. Some NAS boxes will even handle streaming video to XBOX 360 so that would be nice.
I've been keeping half an eye on the emerging USB to NAS dongles which are available around £20-£30 but they seem prone to failure at the moment. No doubt they'll get cheaper and better with time.

Not a bad price for a 1TB drive anyway.
A shame it's 1p short of their 0% interest 3-part payment plan otherwise it'd be woth trying to pay the next instalment using the 15% voucher/account credit.

Thankyou very much for that! You've probably saved me a lot of money! I'm 80% sure that i'll be buying this USB to NAS adapter. Having read the forums, it said that they can easily be returned if faulty. So I may just take the risk....

All NAS drives can stream to the xbox via the use of TwonkyVision.

I have just invested £30 in a 4 USB port NAS adapter but not sure how well the xbox will handle seeing it so we'll see. Fingers crossed
#16
BTW, wouldn't a USB NAS adapter have slower transfer speeds than if I were to simply use a straight ethernet connection? In other words, are there any drastic differences in speed between USB and Ethernet?

EDIT:
On second thoughts, I probably won't get it as it requires a power supply which is even more electricity drainage on top of the external HD.
I suppose the best option would be to get a 1TB internal HD and a NAS enclosure.

Not quite all NAS drives can use TwonkyVision as far as I can see from their website. They do allow you to download a trial version to test it though.

I'd be interested in knowing if it works with the darkstar product, as it's pretty good value if it does!

Ive backed up all my media on this drive and am successfully streaming to my PS3 via Tversity, encoding to DivX on the fly if needed. Cant stream .ISO but will happily stream the unpacked files. No probs so far.

Yes, transfer speeds are around 5mb/s but most NAS drives are pretty slow at the moment also, rarely more than 12mb/s so if transfer speeds are an issue only a USB drive will suit you.

I can live with the transfer times for the convenience of being able to access it from anywhere in the world.

I'd still rather walk into a branch of Currys and pick up the Western Digital 1TB drive for £78.28 and not have to wait for the lottery of Chritmas delivery especially as Cdiscount seems to charge £3.99 postage. The WD drive I got is very neat and near silent, this tosh looks rather thick almost like the 2 drive boxes of old.

Is this Backward compatible with USB 1.1 ports
#22
I just got this today, looks nothing like the one on the website and my one has clearly been used before. Sending it back.

Once you add your shipping costs to the £74.99 the 3x payment plan is applicable :)

Didn't notice that, someone else did though - it's out of stock!

Edit: Now it's back in, ordered too using quidco for 4% back, 15% back in January, 0% payment over 6 weeks (just to see if I can use the 15% back in January as part-payment) and.... a free bottle of plonk by using the promotion code FREE-WINE on checkout.
Excellent!

Arrived today complete with bottle of wine.
Address label was missing road name so Home Delivery Network bloke was a bit miffed he had to go on house number, town and postcode.
As said above, nothing like the one in the picture but at least mine was new. The LED on the front is way too bright and could probably be used to light cigarettes at close range.
