Listed at £44.99 need to use code 10CEA to get price. Voted hot

Ps. Comet site says code 10CEA gives 10% off all data storage so there are maybe some others worth looking at too.

good find :-) thanks

Yep, 10CEA gives you 10% off all storage, thought I'd put that in, good spot!! This looks like the best one to me in terms of size and price though which is why I posted

Runs perfectly with a great load of space. Also the hard drive in the case is a Samsung hard drive, so its a good trusted brand. The hard drive runs at 38 mb/s read and 36mb/s write, So its good for storage."Pros: great for storage, great value for money, trusted brand inside, large sizeCons: may be slow for running programs

Good review.

can this be used for ps3 ?

I am assuming that this is powered by a 240v adaptor.
Anyone know if USB data lead is supplied with it?

Not internally as a replacement for your HDD.
The PS3 uses a 2.5" drive which is used in laptops. 3.5" drives are used in PC's.

good spot op and its free delv.

Great price - just reserved for pickup later today. I've been after a good price on a 1TB disk for a while. Thanks.

(Worth noting that from what I can see this has a separate power supply and isn't USB powered. Not a biggie for me, but it might be important for some people!)

As long as you format it in FAT32 use swissknife should be fine thats what i have ordered for theres a youtube video here

Its a 3.5" drive so does need to be plugged in. TBH I dont think that we will see 1Tb 2.5" USB powered drives at this price for a while yet.

@Thermal Rider, the last one I bought had all the required leads so you should be fine

Will this work with Windows 7 as i have been looking & doesn't seem to list it!!!!!

yea it will work with 7

Is this a USB 3.0 or USB 2.0?

Thanks

Nice price, very tempted here. Deffo a Samsung drive?

Original Poster

Pretty certain its USB2.

looks good thanks

Swissknife wouldnt work with my last drive - I think it was a windows 7 error - if you get this Maxtor Blast is also very good at reformat to FAT32....

I think this is the cheapest 1Tb I have seen - HOT...

thank you op ordered

Just make sure you format it to Fat32

Now you've explained that, it makes total sense that 3.5" drives would require more power than 2.5". Not sure why I hadn't figured it out before! Cheers.

NP. I prefer 2.5" as its easier for the WDLive box, but at this price I'll use it as a second storage only drive.

Ordered for collection - heat added.
How does the quidco work on collections at Comet? Went via the website etc but do i need to "validate" the purchase as at PCWorld, do i need to make sure they put it through with the reservation number?

so does this require a power cable to use it?

Yes you do, no 3.5" are powered via USB AFAIK

I think he said "as at PC World" which bearing in mind that they are in the same group is a reasonable question.... but I dont know the answer.

Comet is not a part of the Dixons Group. Currys is.

It comes with power adaptor + USB lead. It's USB2. Posted before twice at slightly higher prices. Been perofrming well and quiet for the last few months. Like most 3.5" drives it has no on/off switch: tie the power lead jack to the data lead jack -where the grooves are- with the little wire that binds the cables in packaging and take if off to shut down. Best non-bricky 3.5" case I've seen ie: small and thin. Inside it is a Hitachi drive.
