Yes it is. Tesco, for example, have been doing them at this price for months. I bought two, Iomega branded, one Seagate, one Hitachi.

warranty on any external is bad! only 1 year...because the usb or firewire controllers fail more often than the actual drive

i would rather buy an internal drive + a cheap external caddy

this way i would pay more but will have the standard 3 year warranty on the drive

still hot deal tho, nice selection, if you don't like one you will like the other...good strategy from ebuyer

For the same price I would definitely choose the Buffalo Drivestation... Better reputation, higher standards.

I don't expect any of those come with much software so the other drives offer less appeal. That's my humble opinion...
I like the fact that the Toshiba is compact (the smallest footprint here) and very quiet but the cases often fail (mine did).

Definately Recommended bought from Comet about 2 months ago £65 and let me tell you its fantastic, powers on with your computer shuts down whe your computer turns off, transfers quick

Definately a recommended buy.

If that does happen you can still take the drive out of it and put it in your own caddy.

I`ve had one of these for about 6 months with no complaints. Auto power off is very handy and nice and quite too! As little Jimmy Krankie would say "FANDABBYDOZEEEE"

[QUOTE=andycraze;5442824]warranty on any external is bad! only 1 year...because the usb or firewire controllers fail more often than the actual drive


There is a little known law that was brought in and covers all EU countries - it states that even if a warranty is for 1 year, the legal minimum is 2. Tried to find the link I had about this, but I have misplaced it!

For what it's worth I've got 3 of the WD brand ones and none of them have given any trouble.

think i'll hav to pick up one of the buffalo ones, bin usin a 250gb buffalo for a couple of years now n has done the job

Can someone give me an objective view on which is the best in terms of reliability and quality?

At the moment I've got a 160gb external WD which is working perfectly and I am inclined to that.

Which? Would be helpful if you told us ;-)

Great deal.

Most of these drives are a good £10 more elsewhere.

Great choice as well.

I think i'll go for the Tosh as it has an on/off switch and you can remove the casing easily apparently.

thanks for posting em all in one place

I think you're wrong about this. There isn't even a law stating 12 months minimum.

Would that be the one the UK opted out of due to back handers

Thanks! Repped for the links.

Gutted, the WD one is out of stock!

Paul, you an get it for exactly the same price from ]Amazon. I prefer Amazon to eBuyer so ordered mine from them.

So pull out the drive if that is what has failed and you still have your 3 year warranty to call on. WD will even send you a package and label to return it in.

That EU law was little known in England and Wales because the Sale of Goods Act gives the consumer 6 years, as was hinted at in the links provided later. That is four more years than your average European gets as potential cover. You still have to argue the toss with the retailer because the two years are not a cast iron warranty, just a period you are allowed to return it under - you might have to prove the manufacturer was at fault.

Toshiba do not manufacture 3.5" HDD's. All the Toshiba branded external 3.5" drives usually have WD fitted.
