    Is this any good - Seagate Expansions 500GB External Desktop USB 2.0 Hard Drive?

    amazon.co.uk/Sea…8-1

    Anyone own one and if so are they any good for backing up files and storing media?

    Is the fan noisy? And, can you turn it on and off?

    Thanks.

    I have one of these.

    It is very quiet, I dont think it has a fan (or if it does I canot hear it)

    >And, can you turn it on and off?

    The fan or the whole thing?

    No you cant turn it off (the whole thing), there is no on/off switch but that is not a problem.

    You can get a 1Tb drive for not much more nowadays

    how do you turn it off - do you have to keep it plugged into your computer all the time? or can you disconnect it?

    Thanks. Repped.
