Surprising how much the price fluctuates if you keep hitting refresh on Ebuyer's pages !

It's currently bouncing between £52.25 and £52.33 just now.

Anyone used these? I have heard tht on some systems these drives don't get enough power to work without an external power supply.

Hardly any bad reviews on Western Digital drives :)

May be you're unlucky ?

It varies from machine to machine how much power is sent to the USB. It also depends on how many other USB devices are attached, and so on.

Best way to use a WD drive is to delete pre loaded backup/sync software by formatting the drive and using the normal drag/drop and copy feature of windows.

My "WD Passport" Works fine on all diff laptops/pc I use. Not sure about this one.

No they aren't, pyramiddistributionltd are. So you will need to add delivery to that too.

73 in stock @ 11:44.

This seems a bad deal, unless you absolutely MUST have portability (as if a normal external HD is too big anyhow?!). you can get 400-500mb external drives for the same money (and the more reliable Seagate and Maxtor brands too)

I think you mean 400-500 GB:)

These portable drives use 2.5" hdds and only need usb power and are wallet sized you cannot compare these to desktop large drives, those are book sized and require a bulky power supply, hardly comparable, it's mobility vs. capacity.

You cannot carry the 400/500gb drive you meant to say, these are completely different products.

I have a 3.5" external hard drive and it's a pain in the ****. It has its own power supply, it's quite bulky, and half the time I don't even have it connected to the laptop so I'm not using it.

Something like this would be so much better. My laptop's hard drive is quite small as it is 2 years old, don't want to bother to buy a new internal drive and mess about that way. This would just work, and the price is pretty good. It just needs to work on USB bus power guaranteed.

If your laptop is stationary most of the time, £2 usb extension lead is fine, if you move around alot then this is very good deal :)

Marketplace sellers have extortionate delivery costs, amazon over £15 is free.

£30 is wishful thinking, this is 50% less per gigabyte compared to most 2.5" portable drives have been all year, £30 can get you 2.5" 80gb hdd, but no usb enclosure.
#20
I have the 80GB version of this drive and it works fine. However, you must use it with the USB cable that came with it. I have tried several other USB cables and the drive spins up but is not recognised. The other cables work fine with other devices though.
#21
Does anyone know if the drive is SATA or IDE? If it's IDE then those of us with last year's laptop could upgrade its internal drive quite cheaply this way. The WD website is not helpful about this except that their current retail 160G drives are SATA.
