For the sake of 90p i's still go with the Iomega drive here :

hotukdeals.com/ite…nal

Good spot though ! Merry Xmas ! :thumbsup:

Looks like a nice deal! £51.50 with voucher and quidco

"Storage capacity: 1 GB"

I'd fill that up pretty quickly lol!

looks like an alternative to the basic WD & Seagate drives that often get posted here.

i went for the iomega one

Why? Hitachi drives have a good reputation.

Unlike the Iomega this one claims to be Mac compatible

Looks alot nicer than that plastic Iomega jobbie

My sentiment also, you normally pay a premium for their internal drives.

If used as external via USB speed is pretty much irrelevant. WD is the better of them noise/vibration wise. Iomega can house Samsung’s F2 which would make it the best but otherwise is a lottery with older drives thrown in. This Rev.3 not much of a looker and can be quite noisy especially when full/seeks but comes with 3 years warranty (ignore what Comet says) which clearly makes it a best deal so far. Hitachi warranty is by far the best i’ve dealt with (all be it internal drives) – straight direct/or better replacement dispatched the next day upon receipt of your faulty one via UPS following one email RMA and they even used to send free packaging if you have none suitable.

Good deal, may well order as I could do with a couple of 1TB drives.

Does anyone know if they are easy to dissasemble and remove the disk from?

Agree, so where's the fashion show?

This is actually cheaper than buying a 1TB SATA disk on its own.

Quite. Could I crack this open and use the drive as an internal? Presumably it's a SATA.

Thats what I'm trying to find out before I order a couple.

Anyone know which model of the Hitachi drive is in one of these??

Many thanks for your help.

Banned

hmm.. it said 1gb on the website there??

Excellent deal.

Ordered.

Well I need to know which model as I have a deskstar 1tb HDT721010SLA360A which is about 6 months old and died on me with about 500GB of my data :x

So my plan is to get an identical drive and swap the PCB's and hopefully get the data back. I have done this in the past but if it doesn't work...I still need another drive as I am getting nervous with my other drives which contain another 500GB worth of data and no backup!!!

IK1: I read an article recently that said the PCB swap trick very rarely works for modern drives these days, so don't hold your hopes up. In fact it said you could damage your data further; but I guess 'what's to loose' it you're not willing to pay for professional data recovery anyway (£400+).

True could do more damage but I got data back from a Raid 0 mirror when one of the maxtor drives last year failed and I swapped PCB over from an indentical drive...maybe I was lucky.

How are these powered, have they got a 'brick' AC adapter?

Good Deal
H&R added thanks

Hi all.. are these any good? i need some storage but dont have a clue which one to get? can anyone advise which one is the best?

Lose. :santa:

Great for backing up or holding media. I use a couple for my Mac Mini running Plex.

A big drive is typically for lots of data so speed matters.

I bought an esata plug in card for old dell laptop from dealextreme,com for 7 dollars including post and buy a drive that has an estata output for £20 or so more - then whoosh, you get 3 times the speed of a usb 2 interface disk even with brushed alumunium.

2 Year warranty tho on Iomega drive!!!

Looks like it... seems like the same one as in this list?

wiki.gbatemp.net/wik…ist

Have ordered one, but got an email saying possibility of it being out of stock etc etc.. >.and that a customer rep would contact me in abt 48 hrs.

Its working fine for me.

I never recieved a comfirmation email, so I'm wondering if its perhaps not in stock. Not to bothered as I will just buy the Iomega drive instead for the extra 90p if thats the case.

This one hotukdeals.com/ite…nal which has expired since me making that post.

Is this still expired?

I have just managed to order one and it's getting delivered on the 6th. :?

Got mine today seems pretty good, but its a tad noisy and has crappy mini-USB conncetions. The drive inside is a 1TB Hitachi SATA 7200rpm with 32mb cache.
