I have 2 of these and they have been excellent.

Reliable and very quiet.

To get the triple performance, most people will probably need to get a USB3.0 PCI Card, which adds to the price.

Nice price voted hot but needs to be usb powered for me,

mains powered so cold here.

if someone wants 1tb then paying double isn't smart.
if thats their target then by the time they need 2tb they may be able to buy the new 2tb for the price of this one.
and the performance thing only really matters with usb3 machines as said above.

price gone back up to £48.39 voted hot though because i ordered just in time

49.99 expired

Still available...infact for 10p less...for £45.79.
Just ordered. Thanks OP!

yeah unexpired but afaik noone bothered expiring so dont panic!!!

These drives are not meant to be on all the time.... this is the cause of most of the problems as they have no heat control system in place (it's just a 3.5" encased in plastic with a circuit board adapting it to USB.) The hard drive runs fine for maybe 3 hours or so but I wouldn't risk leaving it longer than that as the heat levels begin to rise above tolerable. I use mine for backups/transfers and occasionally stream HD movies off of it.
