Well i bought one over a year ago for less than this, by now the price should be in the £30 range, for people to vote hot at £40+ is the stupidest thing.

think you are just upping the level of stupid here.
this is a portable drive not a desktop drive - if you got a 500gb portable for less than this over a year ago it was very unusual (a year ago 60quid was hot) and nothing to do with standard prices anyway - more likely you cant read.

Bought this about 6 months ago for daily use and I had no issues so far. The only critic I have is:
Dont loose your USB cable. It is a none-standard one and will cost you to replace!

True


whats true? spill the beans tell us how its different! im still confused lol

The cable is a USB mini b, it says in the datasheet. You can get them anywhere. If you live in London you're never more than 3 feet away from one I've heared.

£7 more and u can get a usb3.0 WD one, worth it IMO

I've got 4 different portables and they all use this same socket, nothing unusual about it.

The WD one is nice but the HDD has a proprietary board on it for the usb 3 connection, meaning you can't swap out the hdd. I'm not 100% but I'd assume the buffalo is standard, so the hdd can be replaced/swapped.

I tried using the same cable but not the one supplied with the external hard drive and it didn't work. Windows couldn't read the device correctly. Changed wires and worked fine.

Maybe the one you tried was a mini usb but with 8 pins.

Hi,

Can I use this to play .avi and .mkv files with subtitles (.srt) on my Sony bdp-s70?

Thanks

The supplied cable doesn't have standard wiring. Other mini USB cables won't work (unless you change the wiring)

I have also posted this question in another thread for the same drive, but does anyone know if this will work as a recording output on a Panasonic Viera TV?

Thanks

good price
