It contains a laptop HDD not full size HDD

Its a fully portable drive, not like the 3.5in drives that need power!
#4
Cheaper than many places - but Amazon is the same price, with free delivery. Voted 'Warm', because of that.:)
#5
Not really necessary if you only use a desktop machine but if you use a laptop these are very good. I'm using a 120GB version at the moment.

Good price for local collection. They seem to have stock as well.

Not that cheap at all! i got the same one 3 months ago from amazon it cost me £65

Once again people not appreciating that this is a wallet sized portable usb powered laptop hard drive.

The larger 3.5" "power supply required" ones are not even comparable to this as those are the size of a book + the size of a power supply and its plug.

£65 for a 2.5" 250gb? wishful thinking, this was £99 for a good while during 2007 and over £100 last year.

If anyone isn't in a rush though expect 320gb's to start arriving over the next few months.

No way... for 2.5"portable250GB external HDD :roll:

Amazon was long doing this for £99.99 delivered but recently dropped the price to £89.99 delivered :)

this is a good deal - particulary if, like me, you have a business account with PC World and can get a proper VAT receipt.

regardless of that it is a good price for the size of disk and portability. i have a 60gb Maxtor and it has made my 250gb 3.5" redundant due to its increased practically. although i personally have reserved one of these, i would recommend other buyers research the drive as a lot of consumers have had failure issues with the 120gb iteration of this drive.
#10
Voted warm because, like others have said, it's been at the same price on Amazon for a while now. And personally, I'd much rather have it delivered to my work than have to take a trip to my nearest PC world :)

I have a desktop PC but it doesn't mean I'll never take this out of the house! It's great that I need less cables and it doesn't take up yet another space on my multi-way power adapter. And It looks real swish.

Rubbish.

You can get the 120GB version on ebuyer with the Google Checkout offer for £41.95 delivered.

The 250GB version is way too expensive on ebuyer. :x

Expensive...

I've just checked and using the Google Checkout offer the 160GB version is now £35.94. The price is variable, but I think that this is a cracking price if you don't need the 250GB capacity. Here's the link to the post:

Yes, spotted that as well, but note that is not the Passport named version, so different weight and style, though similar size.

I'm tempted to vote cold, just because their tv ads are soooo annoying!

Agreed marchino and, personally I think the Passport is a better looking design, although I'm sure I've seen a number of complaints that the case scratches easily. But if the beauty/weight and capacity of your hard drive is not an issue then the 160GB version is the one to go for! 160GB = 22.5 pence per GB or 250GB = 36 pence per GB.
#18
i use a 160gb version to carry large amount of multimedia files back and forth to work. very useful as it's much easier than dragging an ordinary external hdd.

mind you, it's ok when it's work who are paying. i wouldn't fancy forking out my own cash on one of these. ;-)

I paid just £59.99 from eBuyer back in May for this.

not for a 250gb 2.5" you didn't :)

3.5" @ 3-4 times the cubic capacity making it huge and bulky and a power supply, maybe.

You paid £59.99 for a Western Digital Passport 2.5" 250GB drive? I doubt that :o ... I've never seen them that cheap!

Fantastic spot! I really needed a laptop hard drive upgrade for this weekend, but left ordering too late!
Review here: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/storage/display/wd-passport-250gb.html

I'm going to rip open the enclosure and take out the 250GB 2.5" SATA drive and stick it in my MacBook, then put the 80GB SATA drive from my MacBook in the enclosure, et voila! I get a massive storage bump in my MacBook, and a convenient 80GB portable drive for Time Machine backups!

Going to PC World at lunch to pick one up, thanks!

People voting this cold don't know what they're talking about. The SATA drive inside the passport enclosure by itself costs roughly this amount delivered.
#23
Just in case anyone is thinking about this, I went into PC World tonight and at the end of the aisle was a huge advertising board for these drives...

Guess what price...?

£79.99.

When I took it to the till it came up as £89.99 but the manager couldn't charge that when he looked at the sign.

So in store, it's a £10 cheaper again!!!

Really pleased and using it as a backup disk with Time Machine. On my nice new shiny Macbook......

Thanks for the tip. Voted HOT.
