Is a TB = 1000GB?



yes,i run the 500gb of this unit and ive had no problems at all

Got this from Amazon at this price last month. Great bit of kit. Only thing is that it is pre-formatted to FAT32, which has some limits on file sizes.
If you're running XP or Vista you might want to spend the first couple of hours reformatting it to NTFS.

It doesn't take that long

Start > Run > cmd > convert drive letter: /fs:ntfs - e.g. convert e: /fs:ntfs

Is that the way you did it?

A NTFS formatted terabyte hard drive will show 931 gigabytes of free space in Windows because of the binary number system (i.e there are 1024 bytes in a kilobyte not 1000).

Anyway, voted cold from me because this is the third terabyte external hard drive I've seen this week for the same price - and there are better deals to be had (e.g: ebuyer.com/pro…355 for £84.99 and free delivery using the super saver option)

Good price, I'm waiting for an eSATA one to drop though.

Voted hot

I would full format anyway - detect any problems or damage. Full scan. My dad bought a 500gb and I was lazy - converted the FS, copied the data and it was dead the next day.

Don't quick format guys... spend the first day formatting this baby

Hi, are these only good for desktops would this be any use with a laptop or should I be looking for a laptop specific one. Thanks.

It will be fine for a laptop - it is an external drive - so assuming your laptop has a USB port (which it will, unless it is very ancient (5 years or more). Just plug and play - oh - and format, as discussed above.

ebuyer had the 500GB version of this for £49.99 - was tempted with that one, I have to admit.

ive got a 500gb version, which i only use for my laptop......it is used to store my stupidly large photo collection.......my pictures are around 9mb each !!!!!


don't know what i'd do without it really !

But just to make sure you're aware that this one is mains powered not USB powered - you need to plug it in to power it

yup, reformat, FAT32 has limits on file sizes (videos can break these!) - better to format when empty, than have to copy off then re-format

Whoops! Didn't know that you could use CONVERT. Never mind. Full format wasn't painful or difficult!
