Bought this for £89.99 6 weeks ago. GRRRR!!

it has a 5 star review on ebuyer and it is really that good. Very small, runs quietly.

Heat added, great find !!

I have the 320gb which has a WD drive in it. Bought it 01/06 when I was working in Dixons. Never had a single problem with it. Has a switch on the back.

Happy with my iomega 1tb for £60 otherwise would have bought this.

Absolute rubbish. Look at the reviews on Amazon and ebuyer - mainly 5 star.
Any hard drive will have a few failures, especially external ones, so you will always find one or two people who have been unlucky. When the majority say it works well it's usually a safe bet.

i have one of these in 250gb, its loud - much louder than my seagate drive. in fact its probably nearly as loud as my entire pc. (although the hd in the 1tb could be quieter than my 250gb version)
Also although i havent had any problems (except the led stopped working) apparenly they aren't very reliable (this is based on previous reviews and comments i've seen and most are caddy related)

There are plenty of similar deals on hotukdeals all the time - perhaps not now but there will be if you give it time!

tbh as someone mentioned before - 1tb is a lot of data to lose if anything does go wrong! If you need a hard drive this big for your important data - buy two!!

for these reasons,
cold :thumbsup:

Had a few of these die at work, infact more than a few ... but they did get used a lot.

No 3.5" drive is designed to be moved around anyway.
#10
What drives do these have inside?

It is a good price, I had one of these and the internal electronics went but i just took out the hard drive and stuck it in my desktop, so it kinda broke.........But the drive is still working 3 years on! :thumbsup:
#12
I already have one of these and it works great. Was looking to get a spare the other day.. I'm glad I held out now!
#13
I know there a few experts on HUKD when it comes to these things.....
What brand of hard drive is 'the best' out there, regardless of cost? I've had a 320gb WD for a few years now with no problems, plus I think they make them with a 5yr warranty, unlike a lot of them.
I'm willing to splash out - I just want something that's going to last

Thanks for any advice

(Sorry for hijacking this post - rep to the op)

I bought one of these the other day for £55 from cddiscount.
Ive taken the drive out of the case and put it in my PC.
The drive inside is WD SATA.
The general build quality of the case seems to be very good.
#15
Is this drive worth the extra £4 compared to this Iomega one?

im no expert, but in my experience all the manufacturers have their good and bad drives - its kinda pot luck... If i had to choose i might say Seagate or Samsung but i'm not certain...
Lots of people will say one manufacturer is better just because they've had a hard drive for a few years and its still working...

The drives in these toshibas are probably ok, its the caddys that are bad
#17
When i was researching the WD Elements 640 seemed to be a safe bet fwiw.

Its always struck me as odd that drives get put in a Al case and have no fan. OK Al is a good conductor of heat but where does that radiate to? Air again.:thinking: I'd have thought encasing would only make the drive hotter.

I would always try to get a drive fitted with a fan. At the mo tho my main ext HDD is wired up but uncased (rising warm air escapes faster that encased warm air whatever your case metal i wood guess) and never seems to hotter than 'warm'.

Then again some drives run cool and don't need much cooling. I think the Samsung Spinpoints are one of them. Ah why don't I shut up. Too tired and wittering away like an old fogie.:p

I got one of these from cdiscount for £55 the other week it's ok.

The only thing that bother me is the light on it, it's bright as anything :w00t:
#19
I've had drives by pretty much every brand under the sun over the years, and they're all much of a muchness in my experience. I've bought drives that people have absolutely raved about only to have it die on me within a month. Likewise I've taken punts on bargains by brands that didn't have the best reputation at the time, and they've outlasted the memory and the CPU.

Generally all hard drives are fine, sometimes they break down. Such is life.

End of the day if you're storing something you desperately want to keep, back up.

Incidentally, irrespective of anyone's opinion on Toshiba or whatever and regardless of what drive's inside, this looks like an absolutely phenomenal deal.

#23
It's a good price - but these sales blurbs do make me laugh -
what is the difference between " optimized for digital video, photo's and music" and any other similar formatted drive ?

Had no problems with my drive which I got 4 months ago. Very quiet, transfers data quickly and reliably. Why buy two 500gb when one 1tb works perfectly fine?:?
Voted hot for the product.

was being rhetorical
was 64.99 and a 10 quid voucher for new customers :)

my point was - nothing is static in pricing terms especially with computing equipment.
#29
i had the 350gb version of this and all worked fine but after a few months it suddenly stopped working and started making noises. so i had to remove the hard drive from inside and put it in my computer. it was good until then. but as above i guess its luck whether you get one that will last a lifetime or just a few months but fantastic for the price!

...but you got it four months ago :?

mines hasnt broken either and i've had it over a year - that doesn't make it a brilliant drive...

Also you may think its quiet - which is fine - but i've tried other drives which are much quieter.

well you buy two because if your data is important, you'll want to back it up in case anything does go wrong (these don't last forever even if you do have the most reliable drive) - you should do this with any drive!

with all that said £70 is pretty normal for a 1tb hard drive - i see these offers at least once a week!!!!

Amazon have had this for sometime at £69.99 and it was previously posted on HUKD. I bought mine from Amazon, very good drive, slightly annoying bright light but nothing a bit of insulation tape can't sort out.
#35
Price back up to £75, and no 1.5TB model it seems! :(
