USB 3.0 vs USB 2.0 - it is backwards compatible. You can plug this portable HDD into your USB 2.0 port.

Top man. Your brain is clearly working at USB 3 speeds and I’m stuck on USB 2. ;)

Good price if you want a USB3 drive but you can get an iomega 1tb prestige drive (same features) from staples for £69.99 (less poss. 7% quidco). Only usb2, but a lot of people may only have usb2(like me)

£5 extra for something future proof?

Me too, I'm tempted. Don't forget Quidco as well.

Anyone know what brand of drive they use in this?

Looking for a good price on the Samsung S2 1tb USB 3.0 version!

I'm looking for a rugged portable drive, along the lines of the Transcend StoreJet or Freecom Toughdrive, for slinging into a rucksack when travelling. Is this comparable to those drives, in terms of construction?

I have Samsung S2 500GB USB 2.0. Everything is fine apart from case being a bit 'SOFT'.
Trust me, you do not want to drop Samsung S2 on the floor. They are not solid enough.

say toodle pip to your data or buy a WD

Yes, 2 lots of 5. I was thinking it was a bad batch. Gone with WD drives which are slower but they WORK!
