hotukdeals.com/ite…e=2
tbh id prefer a cheaper portable (even a higher cost/gb) or a more expensive bigger for better value though this is nice

not in stock ,.,......

You mean, spend £6 extra just to get £5 off? Am I missing the obvious?

Yes. Basically if you were interested in a CD, DVD or book for example that costs £6, then you will only be paying £1 more to get it.

my dad has a smaller capacity onetouch and seriously, they're terrible. they have a silly dual-usb cable thing going on, you need to plug one in for power and another for data transfer. so for starters it's much harder to use it on anything that only has one usb port (laptops, portable devices, networking devices...). and of the two pcs i've used it on at home, one of them it still refuses to work on, and the other it only worked 50% of the time, presumably due to some kinda power issues with needing two usb ports or whatever. infact, out of 5 devices, only 1 of them i succeded with, and only in a small way (xbox - not enough ports, laptop - not enough ports, homehub - not enough ports and wouldn't work even with my craftily put together usb>powersocket adapter, pc1 - no go, pc2 - some success). anyway, useless. get an iphone 3g.

Normally inferior in reliability/noise etc, but having said that i bought a 60GB One-Touch about a year and a half ago for a bargain price and it has never faulted

Looking to upgrade 40 gig drive on laptop will this strip down to remove and install in laptop as it seem a cheap option.

Why not get the 250GB version for extra 11 quid (using the same voucher to get 5 quid off the list price)?:

The 160GB version has a much worse £/GB ratio compared to 250 and 320GB.

Just my 2 cents.

Possibly, and people do buy the easy to open WD Passport drives to do just that because they can work out cheaper. Beware, though, that these external drives are often slightly different from the bare drives sold - the WD Passport drives have only a stingey 2MB cache compared with 8MB on the bare WD Scorpio drives.

The 2 USB thing is only required if you are using a usb hub - if it goes directly out of the laptop then you only need to plug in the one with the two wires going in to it. This is because if you were using an 8 port hub (for example) to get full usb power out the socket it was plugged into would need to be throwing a lot of power! I don't find the OneTouch software to be of much use though - I use mine with the standard backup software supplied with XP. The drive itself is quiet, reliable (well, only had it 3 months!) and the case looks fairly robust. The drive is actually a Seagate so it should be pretty good.

Yep have the same 60gb one touch from the same deal a year ago :thumbsup: Only use the one usb port on that and its been reliable. Wondered if its worth getting the 250gb version as an upgrade. Can any1 confirm it will power off the one port?

Good deal, but external drives are still keeping their price.
