Seagate USB 2.0 Portable Hard Disk Drive . Has anyone use it?
It has 100gigs. And just plug in to computer via Usb. I think its kinda cool..
What u all think?
Interesting. my pc harddisk crashed with errors & I got problems reinstalling windows. Considering getting a new harddisk to replace temporarily before getting replacement laptop in Mar 06. If DIY, can change to portable later.Ren_Hao said:why not consider the the DIYs.
I went a few days ago with the intention of getting a iomega external HD too. Checked out the seagate external also, but it was in the region of $300+ for a 200GB one.
So, walk walk around, decided to get a DIY instead. Same 200GB with standing case, it costed mi less than $250. For this DIY kit, i am also using seagate HD with 5 yr warranty. Formatting only took about 5min.
To me, getting the DIY made more economical sense since i am paying less for each GB ;p
for 3.5" HD, it is near impossible for a laptop usb to supply enough power to drive it. If u are using a regular desktop, i think a single usb plug should be enough. If u use 2.5" HD, than it is possible to run the HD with only 1 usb plug. But 3.5"HD cases should come with power cable for u to connect to the normal power socket, than u only need to connect the HD via a usb cable to your computer.dharma said:If hard disk + casing is much cheaper..
I saw that Seagate just interest me coz you don't need extra cable to plugin to switch.. Just simply connect to usb..
i don think its 2.5" becos the 1st 160GB 2.5" is just out in the market (around 1 week only)... they used a differnet way to store the data. normal 2.5" hd could only reach 120GB so fardharma said:Its not 3.5" ... The size is pretty compact.. 2.5" my guess..
