USB 3.0 vs USB 2.0 - it is backwards compatible. You can plug this portable HDD into your USB 2.0 port.

Sorry if you are having trouble. maybe simple search will do the job.

Thanks OP. Just alerted my brother, who was after a 1TB portable, and he's ordered this.

Top man. Your brain is clearly working at USB 3 speeds and I’m stuck on USB 2.

You are welcome. It is nice to see that at least someone appreciate this.

Good price if you want a USB3 drive but you can get an iomega 1tb prestige drive (same features) from staples for £69.99 (less poss. 7% quidco). Only usb2, but a lot of people may only have usb2(like me)

Me too, I'm tempted. Don't forget Quidco as well.

Tempted. Heat for that, alone.

Anyone know what brand of drive they use in this?

Looking for a good price on the Samsung S2 1tb USB 3.0 version!

I'm looking for a rugged portable drive, along the lines of the Transcend StoreJet or Freecom Toughdrive, for slinging into a rucksack when travelling. Is this comparable to those drives, in terms of construction?

I have Samsung S2 500GB USB 2.0. Everything is fine apart from case being a bit 'SOFT'.
Trust me, you do not want to drop Samsung S2 on the floor. They are not solid enough.

say toodle pip to your data or buy a WD

Just bought one.

Don't do it! I've gone through 10 of these drives! Yes 10 at work and they all get the same problem. The connection from cable to drive is **** and after a few plugs in and out it'll fail

Yes, 2 lots of 5. I was thinking it was a bad batch. Gone with WD drives which are slower but they WORK!
