REVIEW FROM SITE:-

"Probably the best portable USB hard disk available at the moment. It consists of a Samsung 2.5" laptop hard disk encased in a black rubber sleeve. This rubber coating helps to protect the drive as you carry it around (the whole point of portable) and also means it is fingerprint resistant unlike glossy plastic cases. Second advantage to the rubber skin is that it absorbs sound and vibration meaning the drive is whisper quiet during operation. Those worried about cooling shouldn't be, the drive only warms slightly during extended periods of operation. The only fault I can find, and I'm being really picky here, is that the supplied USB cable is simply too short (less than 1 inch). Once formatted, the drive's real world capacity is 298GB."

i think this post (and the previous ones) is hinting out to me to backup my system.... and I shall it wasn't long ago i got a scare for not doing so. can't miss out on this great deal! nice find and thanks heat added.

shame it doesn't come with a 2 year warranty like the verbatim or i'd have brought this

Managed to order one this time after missing out on the last couple of Play Ext HD offers.
Thanks very much.

Great Find, Great price
Thank you

.. spiffing deal! (_;) (hating the new emoticons)

Bad drives!
We have had the USB connector lift off the pcb on 3 in work. The pcb is soldered onto the hdd so you can't put it in a laptop Too (no satA connections)

what's the limit on usb hard drives to change it to FAT32?

I have one of these it is very short, but that's OK with a laptop, and I use it on my desktop too, no real problems.

Thanks, ordered a couple always a useful thing to have and a spare.

Looks longer than 1" to me :-)

Great price - ordered one. Thanks OP!

what's the limit on usb hard drives to change it to FAT32?



If you format the drive to FAT32 you are limited to the size files you can put on the drive, i think its about 4.2Gb.. you can fill the drive up but if you try to send a file that bigger it will say there's not space on the drive.. if you format the drive to exFATor NTFS you wont have this problem but it will limit what you can use the drive on. hope this helps.. BTW Great Find and i ordered one heat added

Awesome deal, good drive inside these by the sounds of it. Samsung is shown in many of the reviews, so should be very quiet and nice and cool/long lasting. It going to live in my work bag, much better value than a USB key, and still very small/light.

ordered, was debating between this and the 500GB Michael Jackson one from Ebuyer

MUST HAVE BEEN A REVIEW BY A WOMAN. LOL.
IF IT HAD BEEN A GUY IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A LOT LONGER

Ordered this for a friend but got the dreaded "awaiting stock" message from play despite being in stock when I ordered. I doubt they will ever get these in again so it is just another failed order at play.com. It looks like a great drive if it gets delivered.

Just wondering because if I format it to FAT32, I can plug into Xbox and play dvds.

Saves burning discs etc

didn't get the ups 10 mins after that thread appeared though.
