i need a 500gb ext hd and have a wd mybook1 250 and 320gb

how are these new ones
I purchased one of these when highlighted here recently at this price as a one day only Tesco deal. It has performed really well despite me leaving it as FAT32 for PS3 compatability. I believe that if you reformat to NTFS it should perform even better. I have just ordered one of the 750GB Premium models on offer at Amazon to use alongside, I shall NTFS that one I think.
This is only £61.30 now, I was thinking of getting the 750gb with USB / Firewire but just bought 2 of these instead.
