Good find! However I'd personally go for the Samsung F1 1TB at £120 at ebuyer then buy a separate enclosure. Anyone who knows their drives will know, this is the best option!

thats what i was thinking, just a shame that those separate external enclosures are never as nice as the ones sold with the drives

if that makes any sense

Might be a silly question. but if i plug this into the USB port of my ps3 will i be able to use it?

Hi
Is it possible to connect an external HD and copy everything on my existing HD? I want to copy everything,including all my bookmarks. Could someone explain to me the easiest way of doing this please? I would like everything already on my internal HD and external HD currently connected to my computer put on to a new drive,so as I can make a fresh install and have both drives like new,with all of what is already on both accessible from the new one,if this makes sense ? Thanks.
:thumbsup:

I have another internal HD 160 GB that I was also wanting to copy to an external one in another computer,same question applies to this,if the above advice is different,thanks. :)

uhh, dont really know how to answer that, on the one hand, if you just want to collect and backup all your important data, thats simple, find the files and copy them to the external drive, your book marks are here:

C:\Documents and Settings\ (YourName) \Favorites

if you are using internet explorer.

However, if you want to have a carbon-copy of your current windows install, thats trickier

could i stream music off this to Windows Media Player?

i.e. it automatically loads as i plug the drive in?

is the one on ebuyer SATA, come to think of it...does this have a SATA interface inside the case? The only reason ~I ask is because most enclosures I found when looking on ebay were IDE....

Can anyone recommend a good enclosure? Well build, reliable?

Good find, I got myn a few weeks bk from play.com with free del,quidco, and Vcard discount. The drive did seem a little slow to write too, at first...but then again i was moving 600gb of tv and films onto it. I'd say USB2 transfer rates are quite acceptable if your not copying to much at once thou.
The drive performs better on all scales than both my last 2, (250gb iomega and 250gb maxtor)
Formatted the drive soon as i got it so I couldnt comment on the WD software that comes with it.

Heat Added.
#18
Im not going to vote cold (because it's still a good price), but, PC World have this for the same price (collect @store) and there's 2.5% quidco so that knocks £3.50 off.
#19
Pc World will price match and also deduct 10% IIRC, brings it to around £116 ish
#20
thats pretty cheap :thumbsup:
#21
great deal, i got one like this from WD is been fantastic since i bought it
