maxtor 250gb portable usb powered hdd £39.99 tommorow @ Netto

Found 25th Feb 2009
instore tommorow not much info but says usb powered so should be 2.5"

i presume it is this one…e-/


It is the same one - 2.5", 5400rpm, 8Mb cache. Case is approx. 5"L x 3.25"W x 1"D. It's supplied with a 'Y-cable'. One end is mini USB (plugs into drive) other 2 ends are standard USB - one marked 'Power + Date' the other 'Power'. I don't know the difference but some systems (PC or laptop) may only need to plug in the 'P+D' but some may need both hence you will need 2 free USB ports

do you have one? if so is it possible to remove the drive from the casing?

would install into laptop if so,as i cant find a 250gb this cheap anywhere.

Bought two from the Osmaston Park store (Stoke-on-Trent).

Weren't on general display, but asked a mamber of staff who went into the back and retrieved them.

Heat & Rep added!
