WD 160GB Passport V2 External USB 2.0 Hard Drive

    Hi guys,

    I saw a deal for the Western Digital 160GB Passport V2 External USB 2.0 2.5" Hard Drive, for £59.90 Delivered.

    I was thinking of getting this external drive for my Laptop which is a Acer Aspire 3694wlmi BL50, with 80gb, however, some of the comment were that some Laptops do not have enough power to run this USB Hard Drive.

    Does anyone know if this will work with my Laptop at all? :?

    The link to my Laptop can be seen below:…772


    The original advert can be seen below:…413


    your usb power will be fine imo.



    your usb power will be fine imo.

    Totaly disagree . Your allot better getting on that power itself and has firewire as its quicker . Using USB you can loose allot of important data as i have in the past firewire has never failed me yet...

    The only advantage is it being very portable...…523


    i use a 2.5 portable drive with my laptop all the time and there is no problem with it whatsoever
