Found 5th Sep 2010
Looking on replacing my 640gb samsung s2 portable hdd with a 1tb portable hdd, however unsure which to pick!
I've got a budget of £100 and I'm tempted to pick a samsung s2 1tb as I like the current 640gb one I have, but thought I'd ask you lot first
Cheers
Jack!

I've got a WD one, time to back it up again it seems.

Ive got a Hitachi 1TB sitting here, is that better?

Can anyone recommend any?

I swapped from portables to 3.5" externals due to the ever expanding size of my collection.

Am using samsung drives in macally cases ATM....and they are great

Cheers boothy think I'll go with the samsung tb

wd is actually good...

Do not go for Hitachi. Don't know about samsung. wd has never failed me yet. had a 3.5" from years ago and dropped from waist height many many times and its still working fine to this day
