£149.99 on the high street (pcw/currys/dixons) etc, So very good deal, although i got a 1 tb version last week for around £52, and would personally prefer to spend the extra couple of quid and have 2 1tb drives.

where was your 1tb from?

i got it from a local computer fair, although they are around £58 elsewhere making this an even better deal.

i just personally prefer to spread the risk of having a drive fail.

Cheers. I'd prefer a 1tb if I could get one for £50. I think I'll go for the 2tb at this price. Are WD reliable?

No one is reliable anymore all seem to have glitches every now and then...
best we can do is be cautious and make multiple copies...

good price though....been looking for one for a while...I'm going for this

Seagate seems to suffer from the COD (click of death) in the expansion version.... so I'm taking my chances with this little baby!

£99.99 now!

I'm going for the 1TB version...£57 and lower risk if I get 2 drives...

But if you get 2 drives you double your chance of a failure lol. Good deal, i'm just after one for backing up my hard drives.

if you have one drive and it fails, the probability of losing all you have is 1 (100%), whereas if you have two and one fails, then the probability of loss is 1/2 ( 50%)

if you have two and they both fail.....something's definitely wrong with you mate :P
