Great find.Thanks OP.

can this be used with the nintendo wii? thanks

Saji, cant see why not if its formatted correctly

hot deal. cheers

Thank You!!! Heat added

I added a Technika Green Camera Bag (For compact cameras) £2.54

I have this drive been good so far no problems with it paid well over £50 so can recommend.

Heat added

3 pack of bubble envelopesd @£1.10 was also added see last time post to make up the £50

Hot and ordered, had some vouchers to use up too so perfect

This product is quite fragile. I accidentally knocked on it last week and both the case and internal hard disk are not working now. I opened up the case and checked the board inside, the 4 solder legs of the usb port are disjointed from the board But wonder how the internal hard disk is faulty too, having large spinning sound.

Hot. Thanks. I've gone for it this time. I plan to use it as a backup medium for my home videos, so the slower write speed won't be a problem.

Ordered thanks n heat

Great deal


Bit on the large side ( 65cm x 47.5 x 24.4cm ) - is there a conversion factor from tesco's own units or is that a very big hand in the picture ?

I have one of these, it's great. Bought off Tesco a year ago for around £50, so if you are in need of a hard drive I recommend this deal. Heat added.

if you want delivered I would and their cheapest mobile phone thus giving free delivery then flog phone on ebay .. I usually get a few pound more for the phone so end up in profit with free del .... not a cert though but hey its up to you ..

Thank you.

Have you tried to re-solder the joints again for connection. Otherwise I would suggest that you buy another one using this offer and try to swap over the circuit board to see if this would bring your disk alive again to recover your data. The solder joint of the micro USB is a weakness. The large spinning sound indicates something mechanical is wrong: but it is unlikely to be the bearings of the platters but it may be the broken heads rubbing on the platters? Does it making a lot of clicking noises (caused by the arm banging against the two limiters? If it is then it could be an arm failure (very difficult to repair and it needs opening the drive case in a clean room) or it could be the faulty electronics of the circuit board which you could replace yourself with another drive disk of the same model.

I have not tried to re-solder the joints. But I did try to use the hard disk on my other external hard disk closure and directly to the Sata cable, but no luck it was not working either. Yes, it made a lot of clicking noises and can't even be detected on BIOS and Windows, so I afraid it is dead as well The internal hard disk is made by Hitachi too. Quite disappointed with the durability of this product, would not buy the same model again.

It's not easy to open the case too. There was no screws on it. I have to use force to open it and broke some of the clips on the plastic cover at the bottom of the case.

Ordered thanks. I've been meaning to upgrade from my 120GB external so this will do nicely.

saji

can this be used with the nintendo wii? thanks

i've heard more bad things about this product than good. I'd stick to the WD products

Hot for me, ordered (plus a £1,14 fairy phone?!?!)

Ive heard nothing but good. Your loss

Needed somemore space so will give this ago.

I got one of these a year ago for around £50. Never had any problems with it and I keep it constantly switched on and connected to my computer. Would definitely recommend. I'm tempted to buy another now since I'm down to my final 300GB out of 2.5TB storage oO. Think it might make more sense to just delete some stuff though.

i've ordered one but wanted some advice please.

i'm not clued up on these things but i wondered if to reduce risk of losing all stored date is it best to make a few partitions on the drive or not ?

voted hot btw

Sorry to correct the previous entry, but this hdd CAN be used with the WII.

We have used it for 6 months now without a hiccup.

Storage deals don't come much better than this.

only 8mb cache seems a bit low...

I have several of these drives and have had no problems.

I also found that I can plug the HDD into my Samsung Blu-ray's USB socket and play back any Divx or MKV video files. This is very useful as my sound system is connected to my Blu-ray player.

Ordered :-)

Thank you

Are these basically silent ?.

Are these basically silent ?.



I have had one for about a year with no problems. You can hear the odd click or two every so often but nothing that bothers me (mines in the front room). I don't have automated back up software running so that probably helps. I just use it to drag and drop files.

I guess it's all down to personal experience, and a bit of (bad) luck.

I've had two WD drives in two years, and they both died on me with minimal use. I won't be touching WD ever again. At least one good thing came out of that whole experience: I now have three backups of all of my precious data!

I tend to use Samsung these days but, at this price, I'll give it a go (for backing up my home videos).

and I have heard more bad than good about WD drives. I got the portable usb WD 320GB one that was paraded on this forum a few weeks ago and that kept locking up my system. I returned that to tesco direct for a refund so am seriously considering this hitachi one.
