Started making loud clicking noises, getting read errors and now will not show up in windows at all. Bought this to back up my data to, have now requested money back from play.

Very disapointed with this item.

When I received my 1tb hard drive from Play a few months ago the first thing that struck me was how cool it looked, and then how quiet it was, and then the fact that I had doubled my storage capacity.

Look nowhere else. This drive looks and performs superb!

I bought this a few days ago for storing programs and alot of data and its fantastic! really quiet and seems a solid make as well. I did alot of research before I bought this and this seems the cheapest with the best quality! I'd definately recommend this to anyone looking to buy a 1TB hard drive. :)

  Good but has faults

| | See all supertwig's reviews (2)

This is a very good external hard drive for the price. Although it has a few faults;
- Transfer speed isn't great but its good
- needs formatting into FAT32 to work with xbox360 although "HP USB disk storage format tool" (free) sorts this out easily.

But remains cool, and cannot fault it for the price.

  Classic Backup

| | See all 29xthefun's reviews (43)

Ok what you have here is a pre formated in NTFS (for files larger that 4gb) hardrive.
In the box is the drive, USB and power pack with euro connection as a wee bonus.
the drive is a 7400 rpm, this does not mean a thing as it is a USB drive so it is limited to the spead of USB but the seagate 7400 drives a well knowen for qulaity and I bet the drive in the box is a normal drive but with the usb electronics. Great so the drive is a high quality drive!
So far a few hours into loading music and video on it has yet to get to a heat that I feel is too much. It is infact a great drive for having very little sound. Very very slight hum so ideal for video backup as it keeps on streaming all the time.
Great drive, plug n play and plenty of room for this reason.
If u buy a 1TB(internal) drive for 65 quid you need to fit it, format it(takes hours) and if any problems crop up with this have to mess about with it.
not with this, great value and essental for back up of photos and music that can be irreplaceable.

  Small Silent and outstanding value

| | See all weesid's reviews (1)

This little box is outstanding, it's the size of a thick paperback and quite heavy, the size and shape allows you to hide it away out of sight.
When you access the dirve there is hardly any noise, a tiny whirr as the discs start that is barely audible above the sound of my psu fan. It's lightning quick in responding and the 1Tb capacity is great but what makes this litte box even better is the price. If you're looking for a bargain then look no further.
