Cheaper is available at scan if you browse to their today only section (which is actually this weekend only!). Look for this product;

250GB Buffalo HD-PF250U2 MiniStation™ TurboUSB, USB 2.0/1.1, 5400 rpm, Bus Powered

It comes to £47.14 and you get free delivery via the avforums deal. Personally I want a 7200rpm but I think this is good value.

Possibly, as it's not mentioned in either the title or opening post. :)

Review on Amazon seems to state it may require 2 USB Ports to operate (One for Power, one for Data) - but your experience may differ from his, by the sounds of it.

Review here:

Nice drive, nice deal :-)

In my opinion Toshiba and Seagate/Maxtor are the best drives out there.

For all those wondering this is a 2.5" drive so no external power source is required.

Will this fit a PS3?

Please read before you post, the product linked is a large desktop hard drive (3.5"), which requires mains power, the product for sale here is a small 2.5" hard drive that doesnt need external power.

Itll plug in externally, but i suspect you're looking for an internal one like this:

Good price - heat added!

When deciding on whether or not to buy this keep in mind that this is a 4200rpm drive and the warranty is only 24month (return to some 3rd party service centre in Germany).

Personally I would spend £64 and buy a Seagate Freeagent Go 320GB. It's 5400rpm, comes with a 5year warranty and looks nicer too.
#12
But by the time two years is over the price of a new one of the same capacity (if you can still get it!) will be about a third, so a five year warranty is pretty pointless.
#13
five year warranty is pretty pointless.

My oldest drive is now ~ 5years old, hence a long warranty is a buying factor - for me.

Not necessarily. Some 2.5 inch drives need a second usb cable for power, or an external 5v supply.

Unlikely mate unless it was a mistake, 500Gb in 2.5in are just not retailing at that price yet. This deal doesn't suit me, but there is no way this is 'COLD!'.

I work as a trainer and travel abroad with a lot of material inc. video sequences etc. To get 320 or 500Gb in lightweight 2.5in is a real bonus and saves having to carry a big 3.5in external and power supply in hand luggage. The Toshiba is a good price and well made but I'd sooner have a 5400rpm.
#19
Nice price but tempted by the Seagate Freeagent. It's Editor's Choice on Cnet.

Look again. The drive for £48.92 is a 250GB one, NOT320GB.

You're missing the point. It's not whether the drive is likely to last 5 years or not (it ought to) - it's what it's worth by the time the warranty runs out. That is all you get back if you claim on the warranty, and the length of the warranty bears very little resemblance to the reliability of the drive, because manufacturers know that hardly anyone will bother claiming anyway, as well as it costing peanuts for them to honour it in its latter stages.
#27
If you buy this 320GB drive and it dies in 3 years, you would not claim on the warranty and fork over £40 on a 500GB drive instead? Your crazy...

If something breaks within warranty then they have to replace it with the same model as long as it conforms with their terms and conditions. If they no longer stock that model, they need to replace with something of equal or higher spec. So basically, you are getting a 'free' BRAND NEW drive if it dies. It doesnt matter how much it's worth when it dies, the point is that if it does, then you will get a new replacement and not have to spend more cash to replace it from your own wallet.

Course I wouldn't, because a 320GB drive will cost about £15 in 3 years - if you can still get one! Don't you understand? :?

Update: ah you seem to understand that these things are getting cheaper. Yes, I agree it's nice to claim under warranty but if you value your time, the hassle that this will entail (sending back the old one, waiting, finding they won't refund the postage, pursuing them for it...) might well be worth an awful lot more than the small amount a replacement would cost. Warranties are far from magic bullets.

No, that's just for USB 1.1 ports when there isn't enough power coming from the computer - USB2 is fine.

I don't think that's correct - I've never heard of a difference in power capability (0.5A @ 5V) between 1.1 and 2 and can't find it on the Wikipedia entry either. The upcoming 3 spec increases the power.

The reason for the Y lead is either that the drive can consume more than 0.5A (probably during spin-up) and so breaks the USB spec, or some USB ports break the spec by not being able to supply 0.5A.
