Good spot - cheers!

think it was 69 in curry's when i bought it sat, so good find
#3
Any issues with the HD itself, e.g prone to failure, etc?
#4
And when you spend over £50 they e-mail you a £5 voucher!

The external PSUs are prone to fail, we had these at work and I have seen 8 out of 10 go bang, my private one was the last to fail and as the power supply failed during a write operation, it has cost me some data.

WD replaced the PSU but I then got rid of it as I did no longer trust it.
#6
I would recommend these Elements drives to anyone
#7
Ditto on what the guy above wrote, they have a problem with their power pack. I would highly recommend the Western Digital "My Book" Essential Edition instead, paying an extra £20 at least for peace of mind is worth it imo...

I've got a few of these, OK so far but I use an Iomega psu rather than the WD pos.
#9
These enclosures are cheap, no power button and have a relatively slow transfer rate but the drive itself is top quality. The 1TB Western digital green drives sell for £60 anyway so this is a very good deal the enclosure is effectively free !

it's fine if you got the PSU with a standard coax. Some (like the ones I had) have proprietary 5 pin connectors and you won't get these anywhere.

Isn't that just paying £20 for a psu?

If the psu fails you only lose a bit of data which can always be rewritten if you have the sense to "copy" rather than "cut". New psus can be had off of ebay for a couple of quid.

Besides, there is no 'piece of mind' when it comes to data storage anyway, everything fails eventually which is why you should back up everything TWICE. Buy two of these and do the job properly.

.... but we're talking about the WD jobby here and it's got a standard connector on it. Don't buy the non-standard ones (or if you do send them back so they get the message!).

e2a - they've got all sorts on ebay, 4 pin, 5 pin, 6 pin, you've not been looking hard enough!
#13
I've had a 160GB 2.5" elements drive for ages, it's super reliable and would recommend them to anyone. I'd "assume" the 3.5" would be just as good!

Hot price though since a 1TB costs about £55 internal anyway!

just used it now (11:47) and it works - heat baby!

Nice one Starr! Is this the one you've chosen to go for then?
#18
Missed the 1/2 price Seagate last week ( http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/497503/1tb-seagate-desktop-external-drive-? ) but for just over a tenner more this is a good deal.
#19
agree with those who have said about failures.

I bought one and lasted about 2 weeks before the power supply went bang.

ended up ripping it out of the external caddy and putting it directly into the Computer.

Yeah, (as with the last external drive I bought, I would just take the drive out and stick it in my PC case as a second internal drive - these are not usually fast enough drives to want to put an OS on, but do fine for storing masses of data at a low price!

Presumably the power supply is quite a standard connector, as I have a 500G WD MyBook and a 500G Seagate and you can interchange the power packs.

Which code did you use?

Maybe its because I have already used this on my own account when buying the super-hot windows 7 deal. Could be limited to one use per customer.
#23
Well, my wife signed up to Tesco and we got £10 off first order using voucher below which made it £54.97. Couldnt register the shared clubcard we have though as it is already registered in my account. :)

I only buy WD drives and have for a while now after 3 500gb samsung spin points failed within 12 months of purchase. I have a friend who works with pc hardware for a living and he is the same.

The drives in these are excellent for media boxes. They are almost completely silient and give off little heat.

I got one of these from Amazon for £64 just for the drive and use the enclosure with a 500gb sata drive I had spare. The bar drives have been retailing for around £60 so it is a very good price even if you just want to take the 1tb green out of it.

Also worth mentioning the case is quite compact and is stackable. Like I said the enclosure is cheap but its basically free the drives inside them are top draw.

Thanks for the heads up - collect saturday :)

I've got a 500Gb Elements and the PSU broke on that too. WD really should look into the problem, it seems to be very common.

I can't get the code to work at all :-(

I bought one from PC World last Xmas, but after about 3 months it died on me and i lost everything on it. Curry's gave me a full cash refund, but didn't trust it WD to get another one.
