Someone is selling this 2TB Hitachi External Hard Drive.

http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Search?storeId=10001&catalogId=1500002201&langId=-1&searchTerms=2TB.

I'm only buying it because it is cheaper that buying a Hard Drive just on its own. So wanted to remove the hard drive and pop it into my pc. Need to find out the following before i buy it off them.

* What is the make and model of the internal drive?
* Is it possible to remove the drive from the external casing, and how difficult is it?

Any help appreciated :)

it isnt cheaper... and its probably this drive, as its the same company

149 vs 111 quid

anyway, it will be a sata drive, as thats all that is made these days, and you should be able to unscrew it without damage quite easily

Probably didnt explain myself properly, i'm getting it for £90, from the classified in local paper. i Though i could save myself £20 and get a spare casing.

It's SATA obviously, I have the 1TB version next to me and it has this in it:

So I'd imagine the 2TB has this in it:

£90 is a good price, I bought two of the 1TBs for £60 each like 3 weeeks ago.


Thanks for that :thumbsup:, is it possible to tell me if there are any screws or clips to take it apart.

according to the fixya question there are no screws keeping this together. I cannot say if that's true as mine is still brand new in shrink wrapped box.

been searching a bit more and found this good review on it. It is the same internal drive as mentioned earlier but it seems that the casing is sealed. :-(
