some are noisy. Mine is and quite a few are complaining about clunks probably related to spinning up and down but not sure. Dunno whether CC35 firmware fixes it. I bought one for a few p cheaper last week and it has CC34

Can anybody direct me to a good site that explains the difference between all the different types of drives such as SATA, USB powered ones and so on? I am thinking of getting a Popcorn media tank or a Western Digital thing that links to my TV but can also download.

Thankyou

daaaaamn thats cheap

i will try explaining:

usb drives are external , although they are essentially the same as the ones that go inside your pc but with an enclosure around them. Usb cables connect them to your pc or media player, this cable will transmit data and power.

There are two types - portable external drives are usually smaller in capacity and are powered by usb alone so you don't need to plug them into the mains and carry a big plug around.

Desktop external drives need more power than usb can supply so they also have a mains adaptor meaning they need to be plugged in to work.

Internal drives go inside your pc or media player - they come with sata or ide connections. Most new stuff will need drives with sata connections as ide is pretty old now.

There is no 100% safe way to store data, but I would argue that 2TB of data stored on a 2TB drive is safer than the same amount data shared across 3x750GB or 2x1TB drives.

Even secure RAID arrays within NAS servers are not safe. What happens if they are stolen or there is fire or flood? The most secure form of storage is to keep copies of important data within entirely separate locations. Personally, I keep everything on 1TB and 2TB drives, plus backup all of my important data to remote storage.

Great deal and great price but I do like the samsung drives over the seagates....

or wait for this?

Add VAT and the usual inflated prices we get in the UK and that takes it back up to near £100

This was handy, just ordered one.

Thinking of buying this.

Can I put it into an external enclosure thing? And can someone recommend one?

but it is MRRP and how often are they sold at the MRRP? usually much less, clearly prices are falling and the pound is much stronger against the dollar currently, I think it could be worth seeing how the market moves over the next few months personally.

Still the OP deal is great value no doubt about it.

Just bought one of these drives got free delivery so im happy.

Big drive for little money but Seagate are just too unreliable for my liking. You cannot beat WD. Over the years WD drives just keep going whereas Seagate......don't.

Thanks Markeh

The link and the explanation are very helpful!

bit of a sweeping generalisation!

If you have important data it should be backed up regardless of whether it’s 10MB or 2TB; the size of the discs you use is not the issue.

Good timing as my drive monitor has just shown this
