Yes but this is a 2.5" drive - Maybe rip it's guts out and stick it in a PS3??

People voting cold not realising this is a 2.5" drive. HOT FROM ME!

could be because there are cheaper alternatives ]elsewhere? :?

(I've not voted either way)

You can get 1TB external drives for cheaper, and small size factor isn't worth the extra imo ... cold for me.

The 1TB drive requires an additional power and they are very noisy.

personally dont think its that bad a deal, bit savage on the cold votes in my opinion

do you know if its IDE or SATA connection inside the case?

^^^^^^^^Power Source Included AC adapter^^^^^^^^^^^^^
It means this drive requires additional power to work perfectly..

This deal is a duplicate, it was posted last week - I still prefer the Buffalo 500GB drive from Amazon for a bit less as it's a durable case which the cable tucks into:

I have read the spec .. and it's wrong. They have added the spec for a 3.5" drive - this one (and the one I linked to earlier) is a 2.5" drive - everyone knows 2.5" drives are powered by USB.

It also states "BUS Powered (requires 2 USB ports) " - thus no need for an AC adapter.

Just face it ... your post was cold (end of).
