  Backup-tastic and will also slog away every day if required

Good drive.
I now have both the 500GB version of this, and the 1 Terabyte.

I use this to back up 2 laptops, 1 desktop, and a PS3.
Note: The disk comes formatted as NTFS. You will need a FAT partition to backup your PS3 to, and if the disk on the PS3 is larger than 32GB (very likely) then you will probably struggle to format a partition of sufficient size to backup a PS3 using XP or Vista (even using command line). Try using a free app called SwissKnife. This will do the trick. Presto - one lovely FAT partition for PS3 Backup.

Disks power down when the PC they are attached to is switched off.

The half terabyte of mine is now in constant use as storage and doing a grand job.

Good Disks, from a known name, for a good price.

  Great, but change the USB cable

Works perfectly well. Fast, quiet and looks stylish. But, if like me, you use this next to a lot of other electrical equipment replace the supplied usb cable with a well shielded one, preferably with a ferrite to soak up interference. This should solve any 'clicking' you get from this drive. It did for me.

  Need for Speed

| | See all amadman114's reviews (10)

I have a need for speed. The download (From PC to device) rate is 1.75 MB/ps for large downloads and 2.8 MB/ps for single files.
1.75 MB/ps is the equivalent of almost 10 mins per gigabyte (you can download of the internet faster)

Also, 480 mb/ps is NOT 480MB/ps. 480 mb/ps is 58 MB/ps (MB is what most people use. They say 480 mb/ps to make it look faster)

Be wary of what you are buying!

Got this about a month ago - mainly to act half as a back up for my mac time machine, and half for general storage. Works great with my Mac, looks great, it's very quiet... what else is there to say? Good price too!

This hard drive is excellent. Good quality and looks nice on your setup. Don't know what other people are on about as I've had no problems with mine. I don't know why people are rating this if they haven't bought the product yet and are asking questions related to playstations, little thoughtless, don't you think?

  Great Value

This product is fantastic, makes no noise and look's very slick. This is a must for Mac users who use time machine. Not compatible with PS3

  Click Of Death

| | See all dazzzzler's reviews (1)

I purchased one of these and as other people have found eventually they start clicking resulting in the drive damaging itself, the problem is in the power adapter not been man enough to power the drive, i swapped mine when it first starting clicking with an old WDBook PSU and i havent had any problems since

Its a good product but should be supplied with a better Power Adapter

  Broke after a month!

Please think carefully before buying one of these drives.
There is a common problem with this make of drive. It develops a loud clicking sound then performs slowly and eventually will die. Many of these are being replaced by Seagate but it seems the replacements are also doing the same.
I would urge people to seriously reconsider if thinking of buying one of these. Sadly, I will never buy anything from Seagate again.
