Very Hot

How does this compare to the Toshbia Alu2 in terms of build quality, reliability, noise etc?

HOT! But I only need 500gb and hopefully they will be much cheaper come December.

My last storagebird failed losing nearly 1tb of data so I would avoid.

I wonder whether this could be used as a TV HDD (Panasonic G20) for recording freesat?

You'd think Ebuyer would get annoyed at a company calling itself ebuyerr wouldn't you?

Anyone know what make of drive is inside this?

Maybe it's short for ebuy.error.

Lol

We bought 50 of these for work and about 40 failed in the first few months.

charge you ten pounds delivery if you live near inverness

I bought a batch of the 500GB model for work and the failure rate was around 1 in 4, I would never trust them again.

good price but reliability seems a little suspect

thinking of buying one but reliability leaves me confused?!?

This is so true, if you want to add to your confusion go on Amazon and do a search for external drives, you'll find all of the common brands there and every single one, without fail, will have approximately 10-30% of people leaving a 1 star review stating that the drive failed after xx days / weeks / months.

Judging by amazon alone, you will struggle to find any external hard drives that don't have a pretty reasonable failure rate.

Wester Digital
Seagate
Hitachi
Fujitsu
Toshiba
Verbatim
Freecom
Buffalo

Most of them have 100-300 reviews for their more popular drives and they all get anywhere from 10-30% of people leaving 1 star reviews with tales of lost data and no longer functioning drives and the reviewers will all tell you that they ended up going with another brand and then they'll recommend that brand ...... but of course, when you check out the other brand ..... more tales of failures.

Im starting to think that external USB hard drives just have a naturally very high failure rate and that none of the manufacturers are any better than the others.

Was hoping to buy an external hard drive tonight, around 1 to 2 TB depending on price, but I'm going to bed now, utterly confused :-p

I have used 3 storagebirds for 6 months now and they all work OK.
The H/D does not use mains power and runs of the USB2 feed from a laptop or PC.
I use them only when i need to store large files and they do not have an internal fan but they do get warm but not warm enough to keep your toes warm (don't ask)
For your money this is 1.5TB with a 2 year warranty so it is cheap but why buy one costing more when they are all about the same and function the same unless you want autoback up or you want the extra bundled software on more expensive hard drives.

Cheap to buy and cheap to run as it is not mains powered and a full 2 year warranty and portable if your named Arni

I ordered this hard drive. It arrived with 6 scratches and marks on it. Obviously not brand new. I wasn't impressed with ebuyer's response so will be returning this product and looking elsewhere for a non-marked new hard drive.

can i use this with the Sumvision Cyclone Live Media Player Adaptor Version 2 1080p ??

This is NOT a USB powered drive. The largest USB powered drive at the moment is 1GB.

A lot of the statements in this thread refer to different drives. If its a storagebird -but not 1.5GB , then its a different drive - so any views/comments are not relevant to this deal. Reliability is largely dependant on the make and model of hard disc installed in the box - nobody has yet reported what drive is inside its casing.

Bought one of these in December 2010 it was not working by february 2011 so the only conclusion I can reach is leave them alone they are crap!! Incidentally somebody told me they are refurbished by Seagate!!
