Probably not, but it makes sense since if you want to sustain a write of 33MB/s spinning a 1TB disk @ 5,400RPM you probably need a bit more juice than 1 USB port (most have 1 USB + 1 external power). Wouldn't surprise me if it works in 1 USB port, but it much slower. Confirmation would be great.

It comes with a usb y cable but it only needs 1 port unless you are using an underpowered usb port. For example on my Philips dvp 5990 it only uses 1 usb port.

you're thinking of a 3.5" drive, which is usually externally powered. this is a 2.5" drive, which usually need two usb ports to run a full speed, since it draws power only from usb. the idea of 2.5" drives is they're portable, and they wouldn't be rather portable if they needed a mains plug.

thanks for all your replies/help/advice everyone

seems i will be wanting a 3.5" drive then, mains powered is the way for me, not that i dont have 2x usb spare, just think its better to be mains powered, cant really think where i would take it or connect it, or that what i would connect it too, that it too wouldnt need/want a source of mains power at one point or another either

inserts :confused: smiley

if you don't need a lot of portability 3.5" would be much more economical

Here's the reviews from Amazon:

For a bus powered drive this is an excellent price.

My Revo is making funny noises. The prices of these portable drives keeps coming down, but I've not seen any great deals on internal discs. It's almost cheaper to buy something like this and strip the drive out, assuming the USB connection isn't welded directly onto the disc itself

+3

Been wanting to strip one of these out for my laptop for a while. Not seen any deals on normal internal ones

I wouldn't risk buying this to strip to put in a PS3 as the physical drive inside the case is likely to be 12.5mm thick. As far as I know (not a ps3 owner) the drive has to be 9.5mm to be used in the ps3. Currently, only up to 750GB 2.5" drives can be this thin.

Cheers!

Can a PS3 owner confirm that this is powered by a PS3 with only ONE USB connection needed. If so then I am in!!
