This version is different to ebuyer's NON PRO!! Very good deal if you don't mind paying a bit extra to get the pro version. This drive has extra features compared to the non-pro version such as cloud storage (up to 3GB) and faster spindle speed (7200 RPM). . Well worth the extra £7 in my opinion.

Comparison can be found here: touropro.com/com…ro/

For those who want to crack this HDD open the drive found inside is an 'HITACHI Deskstar 7K300'

Never had much luck with the dabs packaging, hard drive bouncing around inside a large box (no bubble bags).

No expanded polystyrene packaging around the drive?
Should I wait for it to appear on Amazon at this price or less? oO
Shame - looks good usb3 7200 2TB

versy, you should put 7200 rpm in the headline, because it will get hotter. Heat from me for the price (even though it's dabs and I would try to buy from elsewhere).

Like he said in his post, his is the 7200rpm pro versionwith cloud storage. Yours is the 5400rpm non-pro version, so it is cheaper. Good to have both listed.

+£2.50 cheapest delivery at BT shop - see original post.

What are they like? Any better than DABS?

THIS IS NOT THE EBUYER ONE

Capitals used for the hard of thinking

does this need a power supply?

Better than the ebuyer one. Worth extra couple of quid for the pro version.

iits a 3.5 so yes it is needed

How much cloud backup for free ? and / or how much for the 250 gig paid cloud backup can't find it in any of the links....

Hi Rogercat, 3GB cloud storage for free, and you can pay for an extra 250GB. I've been looking for costings as well, and up to now I've only found the price in dollars, $49 per year, according to this review :

does this have an on/off switch?

remote access?? how to do that?

Just ordered one from BT Shop. Thanks. Went via Quidco for 3% cashback.

I ordered a hard drive from Dabs yesterday, 11am and it came first thing this morning. Standard free delivery. Nothing wrong with the packaging.

I ordered a different hard drive.

Thanks OP - ordered. Great price and worth the few extra £ for the extra year warranty alone IMO.
Gives me more confidence that the drive won't fail!

remote access?? how to do that?



Im not entirely sure but its probably got something to do with remote access from the internet when you set up cloud too, they will probably give you a web address when you register with them that allows you to access your drive remotely, not 100% sure about this though just an assumption.

The bumf reads as if only the 3GB is remote access???

How could the 2tb be available for remote access if the computer that the external drive is connected to is switched off? Impossible !

I would agree, it's likely that the cloud storage is remote accessible and not the full 2tb hard drive.

Thanks. Ordered.

Nice find OP! This will work nicely as a backup drive for my new system.

Does anyone know what exact model of drive is inside this? Thanks.

Thanks! I've ordered 2 of these then, as I wanted one of those as the storage drive for my new build. Buying the drive on its own costs considerably more than buying this external version.

Same, I've just got a N40L and this has a great spec for the price to put inside it.

Yep, ordered mine,arrived today,from Dabs..packaging was neat and secure. Installed very quickly,its plug & play. Set up an ac with cloud online backup service (3gb free). No probs so far!

You NI guys need to just accept you are separated from England by the sea, thus resulting in increased postage cost. Get over it already!
