Yea if your in need of storage then this is a good deal

It's USB 2.0 but you can rip out the drive :D

Amazon is also selling it for the same price.

Great price....I have a 2TB and it's as silent as a mouse. In fact it's the quietest external drive I have ever had. Ordered one for backups.

I paid a little bit less for the 2Tb version thanks to hot deals and its a brillliant drive and silent, hot from me considering the prices right now.

what do you mean by 'click'? does it make a noise when its running or something?


The click of death ... basically the hard drive head gets stuck and wont reset back ... and the HD is well dead/game over/end credits .... my mybook did this after about 2yrs :(video of click of death

It's a common term to use when a drive becomes faulty, they often make a continuous clicking noise sometimes called "the click of death" It happens when the read and write arm inside the disc fluctuates backwards and forwards quickly and hit's the centre bush of the disc.

I have had many dozens of drives in use and only ever had one that has gone faulty and yes it did click! (FWIW It's wasn't a WD drive)

This is a very good deal indeed IMHO, better than the one I posted for a 1Tb @ £49 from Sainsbury's.

People, don't be put off by folks saying these are not reliable or has problems, of the millions of Hard drives sold there are always going to be one or two that turn out to be faulty irrespective of the manufacturer. :)

I bought 2 of the 2tb ones from Dixons too when they were going for under £55 a while back.

I did however find that they both stopped working quite quickly (within 3 or 4 days).
Annoyingly when each had got to 1.4tb full.

Dixons were really good & arranged for me to swap them out @ PC World.
The 2 replacements have been as good as gold.
Whatever they do to them in transit just doesn't do them much good.

Wow i got this from pixmania for £35 about 5 months ago! why the hell has the prices gone up so much? my one went wrong today, the usb board in the caddy burnt out and corrupted the drive, so i lost all my data - not happy. warranty replacement in process.

You may want to black out the barcode to mush

Thanks OP, I have been waiting a while for these to come down in price - just ordered, and used TCB :)

one thing that you all need to note if buying any drive is always backup up important photos or your music collection to either another drive or dvdr, trust me it might seem like ott, but when your drives dies and you loose all your family photos you'll will learn the hard way.

doesn't matter how good your drive is, it could die anytime

Use these myself - new drive out the box & stick it in PC & do a clean install, take old drive from the PC and stick it in the enclosure & copy the data over - there you have it; faster PC (clean registry etc) and if you a***e it all up you can always stick the old drive back in the PC & reformat the new hard drive & start again - heat added
