The Freeagent docking station might be worth the extra money to you; I don't think there's anything between them otherwise.

good price voted hot

voted hot! I have owned this portable HDD for more than a year, and it has never gave me any problem. Too bad i just bought the seagate go for a fiver more, otherwise i'd have gone with this one.

p.s. your link seems to direct me to ebay front page instead.

cab you pull the drive out of these to use in a laptop? or is it one of the ones where its soldered to the interface?

cheers

cheers gone for one - now only 20 left!

Can this be used with a mac?

The docking station doesn't come with it on the play deal either, its another 15 notes on top, or there abouts

Voted hot because I prefer WD as a brand. they make more reliable HDs hence they charge a premium.

And its not made by Seagate, which is a huge bonus.

No you can't, the board IS soldered to the interface.

This is last year's model so the answer is yes, you can pull out the SATA drive if you so wish. Otherwise, this has a mini-usb interface rather than the micro-usb interface on current Passports, in which the usb interface is part of the hard drive.

all gone?

I'd bought a few WD drives of varying sizes to use the drives to upgrade laptops (cheaper than the bare drive), then had one supplied from Amazon which was still mini USB but the board could not be unplugged from the drive. Beware if that's what you plan to do, it might not be possible!

Thanks for that - there was a deal a while back with a docking station included - looking at the Play picture and description I thought this was the same item :oops:
