This has got very good reviews too!

Thank you Tesco, I've bought mine!

Can also collect from local Tesco store for free!

Oh yeah! thanks OP

can we use for ps4's internal storage?

Thanks , grabbed 1

Great find - just bought it - thanks!

USB 2.0? 25MB/s? It would take around 6hours to put some stuff on it - would rather pay extra tenner for a USB 3 hard drive.

Ordered! Cheers OP

Tidy!,,,just bagged one, great spot have some heat :-)

Thanks OP, Just ordered

I've never had trouble with 2.0 USB speeds. but then again, maybe your'e in a lot more of a rush than me? I pretty much only use mine to back up photos. This is perfect for the job if you ask me

yes u can use as ps4 or any console that takes small laptop hdd as internal. u just would have to open the casing and take the hard drive out. and put it in your ps4. then use ps4 setting to format and done.. then u are left with a case that u can stick any hard drive in and use as external.

Its all down to what you want it for. I was looking for something like this to plug into a TV and use as a PVR so I've voted this hot. I might still get the 2TB USB 3 Western Digital to use for other stuff

A tesco hard drive deal that isn't a goose chase! Heat alone for that

Ordered. Thanks op. This is a steal.

Thanks, been after one of these for ages, bargain!

Mini-usb 3? Is there such a thing? I thought it was micro or full size.

thanks op... great deal!

There have been plenty of 1Tb USB 3 drives hovering around the £50 mark on here, so all in all,not that great a value in comparison taking into account bang per buck.

USB3 isn't available via mini-USB - it's micro only. The connector is designed to accept micro-USB but will only allow USB2.0 transfer speeds as a result.

Can it also be used on a ps3 in the same way?

Just ordered, thanks :-)
Not sure what I'm going to do with a third hard drive though, already got a backup of the laptop and a backup of the backup

My point was on top of everything it's an old connector let alone not usb3

Granted - but if you don't need 2TB, and the spare capacity would simply be wasted (or if you want a spare drive just to chuck stuff to friends without worrying about losing it), then this is still a good deal.
Using the 2TB is better value argument, I'd say XXXL t-shirts are much better value, but not that great you you are 'M' in size!

Just bought one for the craic. Cheers!

Yes but ps4 already has a 500gb hdd. - no improvement.

Unless you plan on swapping them once one is full (im unsure how a ps4 handles hdd swapping back and forth)

The Argos one is also USB 3 ....and not as slow as the clunky Toshiba above....

wish i could vote hot again. thanks OP!

It doesn't want's to format drive after each swap (even if prevously working)

just bought for brother who's after playing movies through tb. not 3.0 but not a necessity at such a bargain price and what it in the end what it is actually used for
