Got one of these from Tesco for £46 last month when they had a pricing error for an evening; I've nearly filled it already thanks to several p2p sites' festive freeleeches. Very nice drive; it's quiet and powers up and down automatically when the USB is plugged in.

Not sure if I should get this or the comet deal??

so this is USB powered, not mains powered. wondering what kind of load this would put on my PSU... or can you power it from a USB hub?

same price on play with free delivery

agreed - i'm out

Looks like the going rate for this drive now.
It's £59.99 on Amazon

Plug n’ play — no software to install. Simply drag-and-drop to save files. USB powered. Built-in power management ensures energy efficient operation

surely this must be better than the comet one? a usb powered one is what i was after so i wouldnt have to carry around the ac plug

guys, when it comes to important things like hard drives, you can't be searching the deals unfortunately. It would be nice too, but you'll just regret it later. I bought a 1tb Buffalo external drive for £80 at the beginning of the year from Play and it has worked fantastically, so you'll just have to cough up the extra scratch for reliability.

edit: here's the one i got, you can find it a bit cheaper here:

This is an AC adapter.

There is no usb powered drives over 500gb yet to my knowledge. Maybe a 640gb one, but nowhere near the 1tb mark yet.

Anyone know if these have the 7200.11 or 7200.12 version drives inside?

Think it's worth bearing in mind that when it comes to hard drives, there's always going to be failures for every brand and for every size of drive. When a drive does fail, it's more likely that someone will post about it, or write a review about it, so I tend to read reviews about hard drives with a pinch of salt.

I've got two Seagate drives, one is now at least 2 years old, and both work perfectly. Unless someone can actually provide a scientific study where at least 100 or more drives of a particular brand have been tested for reliability, I would personally only take note of reviews and comments, and not let them put me off buying one. The Xbox 360 reliability problems haven't put people off buying them.

I recall a great number of peeps had posted issues regarding the .11 firmware. The .12 firmware would have appeared to resolve all the issues of the previous .11 problems

why do so many people think this is USB powered?

just reading what it states i guess

As already stated, very poor reviews & only a 2 year warranty, the Freeagent range, although a little more pricey have a 5 year warranty, tells you something about the quality?
1 TB is a lot of data to risk for the sake of a few £'s!

WD have a 1TB USB Passport but no 3.5 drive is USB powered at present.

I got this from Makro 2 months ago for £56. It's been good until 1 hour ago! The "clicking" noises have just started.

I'll see how it reacts the next day or so but if it doesn't improve, I'll be looking for a refund.

A quick google suggests that Freeagent might not be all that great either. Takes me back to the old Iomega Zip Drive 'click of death' fiasco. I'm not prepared to revisit that experience so will steer clear of Seagate until they sort out their quality control.

Apparently this hard drive has a high failure ratio compared to other drives.

I wish I knew that before I purchased one. Although my 500GB Seagate is still going strong, the 1TB and 1.5TB drives seem to have that "clicking then fail" issue on a lot of them.

I have one of these, got it on Ebays deal of the day ages ago. It always makes random clicking noises which worry me. Not sure what to do about it, works fine but im pretty sure it aint supposed to click lol

There is a batch of segates that had problems, but this can be sorted by updating the firmware available on their website. It was easy to do, took me about 10 minutes to complete.

After a mate had told me about seeing it instore at a Tesco Extra (there weren't any in my local non-Extra store) I was about to post this and then found it already had been. Worth noting that they had some versions without the software (no stickers on the boxes). Confirmed that box states AC adapter included - it's not USB powered.
