WESTERN DIGITAL My Book World Edition Network Hard Drive - 1TB - £89 @ Currys

Found 23rd Dec 2010
Been looking to get a gigabit nas with bit torrent / twonky etc for use with PS3, found this, looks like the best price at the moment?? Plus use quidco for 3%, if this has been posted already then sorry, I have searched but cud not find it. The best deal i can see for this was posted 5 months back for the 2tb version for £119 at play.

hope someone finds this useful.


Also in PC World, spotted it yesterday. Forgot to post it. It won't run apps like Squeezebox (easily) but not a bad drive otherwise.

Thanks BlackCloud, forgot to mention Im also considering the buffalo linkstations at amazon, apparently these run squeezebox, according to one of the comments in the link I provided for the 2tb post.

There is alot of different comments on this drive, some people are saying it is slow etc and some people are saying its smashing.


I've got one to back up all my work & find it great & never slow

It's a great little hard drive

can you swap the hard drive out with this one when/if it gets full?

I've got an older model, great for hacking to do all sorts of web based things.
It is slow though...
