Is delivery no longer free at Dabs?

Hi, if I buy 2 to be used as mirror drives for saving my videos and pictures, it is possible to pass data from the PC to the drives at the same time with a simple click?? Do I need any special software if yes??
Thank You

Anyone know about the drive inside?

I'm looking for another 2TB HDD for my NAS.

Is this portable?

its not portable good drive .. but just incase this might help someone . . i could not format a partition on it to fat32 512k . . . it will format in fat32 but not with 512k sector sizesorry if this sounds dumb

Boot from an Ubuntu Live cd and use gparted to format your partition.

If you have this Highpoint controller card

then you can RAID external usb drives off it.

I've got one of these and drive inside is: HDS5C3020ALA632 according to Hard Disk Sentinel.

Wondering if I should get another one but don't really want to risk purchasing from the same batch as I got mine from Dabs

These easy to open up then?

Depends on how much tape they use when packaging.

Looks to be the cheapest way for me to get another 2TB HDD for my NAS then.

It does seem a bit absurd that the internal drive alone is more expensive to buy than with an enclosure!

I've got an old Samsung Story Station 1.5tb that I've tried to open up to get to the drive inside, found some instructions online. Looks simple but I just cannot get the drive loose. Very frustrating, so if you're after an internal drive just get an internal one to save yourself the hassle. I think I read someone broke a knife trying to open their Hitatchi.

I had wondered about that recently too. Well the guy in the video linked above says that the internal drives are currently more expensive because of the increased demand still for internal drives since the floods in Thailand which affected many of the factories. Less demand for external drives for new PC builders.
Seems a fair point.

Good price for a useful household back up. Heat added.
I have the 2TB Pro version also from Dabs.-
I use it to weekly W7 back up 2 Laptops via wi-fi and 1 desktop via USB3.

Mine arrived today, only getting about 30mb read/write, this is over USB2 but I was expecting a bit more?

Mine arrived today and I also get around 30mb/s write speed. Does the blue LED stay on on yours even if you unplug the usb cable from the computer because mine does. To make the LED go off I have to unplug the power supply from the socket.

If RXP91 reports the correct drive inside please also read the reviews on Newegg.com

If you have 2tb of data sitting on one drive and it dies.... that's not exactly fun. And what difference does it make if you get a replacement!
Also, backing up could be a bit tricky unless you get 2 of these.

Does anyone know of any other reputable external HDs that have more memory storage?

Memory? Do you mean on-board cache size (rather than physical hard drive capacity)?

Doesn't seem fast at all

People reporting slow usb 3 speeds: Is the drive connected to usb 3 port?! that should make all the difference.
