    Default Ext HDD good prices

    Dicky has good value USB 2.0 Seagates ATM. Just bought a 2TB Expansion drive for $139. 1TB is $129. Cheaper than buying the drive on its own!

    They are std drives inside aren't they?

    They are, only thing is you lose warranty by taking the drive out of the enclosure i believe. Still great value. I'm going there tomorrow

    Often I have found that the drives in those cases are generally green drives with with slower rotation speeds (5400rpm). Good for data storage but not performance.

    They are not always normal drives these days - some manufactures build with the circuit board connected directly to the Drive - no sata connections.

    Shouldn't be with these particular ones though, from the videos I've seen on Youtube.


    Anyone who bought one - what drive did it come with? Can you find the model number?
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Bit chary of trying to pop the lid. All those plastic clips to break! Is there another way of getting the drive to reveal its secrets?

    Damnit man!

    I've already got more drives than I need, but that price was way too sharp to ignore.

    Thanks, I think... more drives and more cable to add to the mess.
