Good price. I paid £37 for the 320gb version from Scan the other day.

The hitachi drive is an awesome price, under £30 for a 500gb 2.5" drive is about as good as you will find at the moment, and it doesnt appear to be a bigger 12mm drive either as its listed as 1cm, and normal 2.5" drives are 9.5mm.

Original Poster

Yeah i thought the same at first but the form factor of this one is 2.5" x 1/6H normal one's is 2.5" x 1/8H I wish i can get more information about what means by 1/6H and 1/8H

According to the link below, the drive height is 9.5mm, so indeed for that price a great deal. If only I haven't had terrible experience with a Hitachi Travelstar in the past... but that was 8 years ago or so to be fair, so might not be relevant anymore.

Had a look at few other drives in ebuyer....every other drive is specified as 1/8H only this one is specified as 1/6H. if this is not a 12mm drive i would agree that's a good price for 500gb drive...by the way they also have another hitachi drive at higher price....

This is the model on ebuyer 5K500B and lists the Hitachi as 9.5mm.

Original Poster

But any one here let me know the difference between 1/6H and 1/8H... I am still confused with this. I brought a 12 mm drive previously and it is not suitable with my hard drive caddy...so i sold it for a cheaper price....Don't want to do that mistake again....

Are you asking if this will work in an XBox - sorry, not sure as your post has **** in it.

If so, then the answer, I believe, is yes but you will only be able to use/see 250Gb as the XBox, currently, doesn't support drives larger than this.

In which case, you are better off going for a WD5000BEVT which can be had for about £30.

this is the same drive as what is inside the buffalo hdd caddy from asda for £35, so you could buy that and swap the disk on your ps3 with the one in the external drive...

**** - I find the Hitachi, ask if its suitable and I find it is and then people rush over and buy it before I get home to order LOL

£39.58 today only (whole weekend actually) on Scan. Postage is free for Hexus and AVforum members.

RE: PS3 I have read this drive's spin up time (i.e. time taken to come out of it's idle state) can affect gameplay. I got a Samsung drive instead!

Can get a 640GB Samsung SpinPoint from over clockers ukfor £50 plus p+p. Or if you're a member free delivery.

I bought the 640Gb Samsung spinpoint from BT Shop for £43 + £1.50 postage, works perfectly.

Not that hot, i bought a sammy 500gb one from scan a week or 2 ago for £33

You can get a Samsung 500gb 7200 for £43.99 plus postage at novatech novatech.co.uk/nov…tml
