Has been this price for a long time. Prices on HDDs have been dropping just recently. This is at least a tenner too much.

No way.This is not much more expensive than the 500GB model from elsewhere, and it's the cheapest from anywhere for the 1TB it's also not a run of the mill drive having military grade shock protection.

Can this be cracked open to unleash a normal HDD?

Yes time machine and for use as a normal storage drive.

I can confirm that this is indeed military grade. I have blown it up with a mortar round and following close inspection, it does still exist as an object.

Given that 2tb portables are now around the 65 spondooleys mark makes this about 25% more expensive than it should be.

Military grade? Oh you meant the rubber jacket...

I recently upgraded my phone to military grade. It cost me £2.99 to do so. Please don't tell the government!

I wouldn't use this in a war zone. It is not even kid's proof. If you don't believe me, take it to a nursery and leave in amongst the toys. However it is OK for dropping it from table height. But then I have dropped a 1TB Samsung disk without any protection from the landing , bounced down a flight of carpeted stairs. No fault after a deep surface scan which took half a day!

Damn, rejected twice still can only get it down to £44.02

I've always found Transcend products to be pretty decent and they're a good brand, so heat from me :D
#18
They do a 2TB version for £82.99

Anyone know what drive is actually inside? I have found in the past this is a big difference - especially when trying to power from "normal" USB2, such as my Samsung TV :)

Yep...just slide the rubber sleeve off and undo the 4 off posi-drive screws. ;)
