And as it was from Play, you're stuck with their infamous 28 day return policy - best avoided for anything electrical!

play.com vouchers apparently don't work anymore, making this the cheapest price (if you exclude cashback).

5400rpm drive for those who expected 7200.

5400rpm is good. Less heat and wear on the drive if used a backup storage or data storage.

Same price on ebuyer, where I bought it from last week.

It's a good drive.

This comes with a 3 year warranty, by the way.

I bought one of these a few weeks - nothing really negative all - apart from a bit slow read/write wise (slower than my older 2.5 inch 5400 rpm Phillips/Hitatchi I have)

but great value for money and good build quality

has an on/off switch which I like

Brought one lastweek from Ebuyer. Pretty nice caddy, comes with an on/off which actually quite rare considering WD/Seagate don't for some strange reason. Also the included drive (F2 Eco) is very quiet and stays around 23c.

A manual on/off switch suggests to me it is otherwise always on?
You don't need a power switch if if auto turns off. But there are some drives with no switches, that still don't auto turn off, i.e the recent iomega and seagate deals.

Bought one of these from Amazon last week for my brother. Looks very nice with a gunmetal finish and is apparently very quiet - would recommend.

Got mine today, went with the amazon card offer to get it for 70 quid. Seems quiet perfect for my torrent box just 750gb to copy over now

wow ONE AND A HALF TERRA'S when will the storage stop,

Nasa didnt even have that much when they put the first ship in space!!!

bring on the 10 terra's or maybe infinite terra's.

thinking about it... I have a 320gb which when plugged in was actually only 300, so i'm wondering how much memory these robbing monkey's take off of this one! why does no one complain??

fan-bloody-tastic drive

Because it's not the drive's fault, it's the operating system

1.5tb = a little over 1.3tb when formatted. they measure in bytes which is really annoying.

drives will stop at 2tb on a single disk for a 'long while for technical reasons i wont bore you with,

Not true, a 1.5TB drive always has 1.5TB. The discrepancy between sizes is because while HD manufacturers uses gibibytes as a measurement, and Windows uses gigabytes. As 1 gibibyte = 1.074 gigabytes, this is why Windows reports a lower number (but the space is the same).

IIRC OS X Snow Leopard now reports in gibibytes to avoid this confusion.

TDK are already testing (may by now have started mass producing?) 640GB platters which would make for a 2.5TB four platter disk or a well over 3TB 5 platter disk.

Storage won't just stop at 2TB, they'll always be pushing the envelope.

I thought it was the manufactures quoting a drive mb @ 1000 instead of 1024 i.e. 320*1000/1024 = 312.5 gb granted some of it is the OS but not all.

don't some of these NAs drives format the drives such that they make better use of the memory blocks?

I just bought one of these from Amazon. Looks like a good alternative to the MyBook range.

I have this! A very reliable Hard Drive!

If they are measuring slighty above then shouldn't you get more i.e 1024 is not a meg as you get 24k extra. If this is times up to gig shouldn't you have extra not less? please someone explain as I feel I not got what I have paid for as 1.5TB should show as 1.5TB not 1.3TB.
