Oh right, yeh thanks mate!

Bloody good deal if u ask me!

I'd recommend the following portable 500GB USB drive for 84 quid:…8-2

The casing is durable and the cable neatly wraps around it plus it's a standard mini-USB cable if using a different one.


Cracking little portable drives these - I use mine together with my Western Digital HDTV Media Player and the difference between having a portable and 3.5" external (with power supply) is night and day - just plug and play in both HDTV and the PC plus it is tiny and looks the part as well as being pretty fast.

I'm going to buy pick mine up on Monday when i have the chance.

Great reviews, and comes with an amazing 5 year warranty!

I was either going to get this or the WD Passport, but this one seems a lot slimmer and has a metallic finish similar to the WD Passport Elite.

Could anyone recommend a good 2.5" external hard drive case? I saw a nice Case Logic neoprene one at Tesco. Just want one that looks nice and will protect the hard drive from getting damaged in my bag!
