Found 15th Dec 2009
Needs to looks quite smart, black in colour preferrably

No cheap jobbies, I need a quality item that will last.

£85 is the high end of my budget but would rather stay below that.

Thanks

I wouldn't go for anythin bigger than 500GB (unless your prepared to back it up or lose it) as i just had 2 - 750GB drives fail on me in the space of 2 weeks (both were Seagate - same make & model).

Lost a shed load of data ....:-(

Am waiting until the reliability of the bigger drives gets set in before i go for them.

Was it the drives themselves or the power supplies that went, was it portable drives? :thumbsup:
