This is the slower 5400rpm drive:


Not necessarily true, mine had a 7200 rpm drive in it.

Can USB3 exceed a 5400RPM drive then? Maybe the slower drive might last longer, what with less heat, etc.

Would i be able to change the hard drives in this to another type or size?

Mine was 7200rpm and 79 from ebuyers ebay store:

Hitachi HDS723020BLA642 - 2000.3 GB

SATA 600 - 7200rpm - 153mb/s write and read

That is a mi-description on the RPM speed - the pro only has cloud storage as the difference, in fact the box for the DX3 does not say DX3 or RPM speed anywhere on it and everyone that had done a disk info test or opened one up has found a 7200rpm drive

Also it's still in stock on ebuyer in their ebay shop.

Thanks for the update - I do wish retailers would put the correct info on their sites...

You obviously had the pro version which you can by from dabs for £3 more......

dabs.com/pro…=16

Not obvious at all it's only £79 delivered for the non-pro with the 7200rpm in it. Everyone that's had one from ebuyer has had a 7200rpm drive, the 5400rpm is not written anywhere except the sellers documentation, the pro one only comes with cloud access and remote access.

And it comes with 7200rpm on top of the cloud storage.

Didn't realise the non-pro version runs at 7200rpm. i would still rather pay £87 and get the extra 3GB cloud storage on top though.

I got one of those drives from Ebuyer. Any way to tell which HDD is inside without taking it apart?

Yes download a free program called crystaldiskinfo - quick google search will take you there. Then tyest the performance with crystaldiskmark or ATTO bench 32 or similar.

got a pro one last week and impressed with it (tops out at 107mb/s with large files on my xps 15). Only 'downside' is the physical size ... its about twice as thick as the wd elements drives.

Now this is hot.

I bought the Pro one from Dabs as at the time it was reported the non-Pro had a slower drive, but it now appears otherwise. I could have save a few £. Oh well.

any clarity on above which one is 7200 RPM...... thanks

I got the ebuyer e-bay one and made a scan of it. I don't know whether it shows which speed drive it is though. Seems OK except for the lack of powerswitch, which means I have to keep unplugging/plugging the powerlead (I should probably unplug the PSU, but the plug socket's rather inaccessible).

is it a good drive to use wth:
Your text here
would it shut itself if not used for long periods?????????????

so are they both 7200? and the free cloud storage you can't access via phone...

£74.99 on ebuyer ebay outlet today only!
Just ordered

Better to get the Pro version 7200 speed for a few pound more at Dabs.com or Btshop...

@zippy22

Do you have a HDTune scan of the Pro one that you can share to show how much better it is than the ebuyer one I posted at the end of p.1?
