good price but be warned, i think this one is the USB only one not firewire or esata. Thats a very big transfer at a slow speed.

i hate how they state how many mp3s etc it can hold without giving specifics on bit rates and frequency + same with photo & video resolution & bit rate etc.

Looks like 2x 1t drives in one box.

Calculating all of this. 1tb come to around £60-£70 now. Two will cost around £120-£140. Which means the external chassis sets u back £25-£45.

yes it is two drives in one so you can run them to give 2tb in total or 1tb in total depending on what raid you use

I would cry like a whipped child if I lost 2Tb off stuff.


Though I suppose you could RAID it if it was important.

I have two western digital 1tb essential drives which will be the same as this one and it just took 2min exactly to transfer 3.39GB so 35 seconds for 1GB. A 1tb is 931GB so it would take 32585 second to fill it, or 9 hours ish, which i think is pretty fast! and who in the world would buy a 1tb hard drive and fill it straight away anyway? i think 99% of people would maybe fill it 5-30% full then slowly add, so the initial transfer would take a few hours.

people who use external hard drives as a scratch drive for media (video) would fill a drive very quickly, and USB slows down considerably when transferring large quantities of data as it doesnt have its own controller, dont be offended, its just something some people dont think about, they just see the large numbers, i think it is important to bare in mind, just like a lot of people ask the transfer rate of the flash drives on here daily.

You'll find though, that a lot of people don't have Firewire or eSATA on their computer. :)
#15
is there something like this that supports firewire or esata? or even a enclosure you could put drives in.

Also could you back up a os onto this and then restore it?
