  • Urgently require an external hard drive

    My desk top and laptop are bursting at the seams. I would like a 1Tb external hard drive.

    Can you please suggest a reliable one. I have a Buffalo 500Gb which is showing red also.

    I was looking at another Buffalo but there were a few negative reviews.

    Any input asap please.

    I've used Western Digital, extensively and so far had no issues.

    I only use the powered "My Book" versions as the USB on my laptop is not up to powering the "Passport" versions.

      Another vote for the Western digital "My Book".

            I use three 1.5TB Samsung Story Stations, together with two 320GB Freecom Mobile XXS drives (that don't require separate power), and an assortment of others that have been kicking around for years. None have let me down so far.

              I have a 250Gb and a 500Gb - neither is big enough to back up my Desktop in total.

              My decision is to have a 1Tb/1Tb+ to back up my Desktop and use the 500Gb Buffalo drive to back up the photos on my laptop.

              So now I have made up my mind it is mainly for the Desktop, it does not have to be physically so small, although I would still like a fairly neat one. So back to the searches for the cheapest of the kind.

                At one time I believe we could get a discount if ordering something through DPNow. Is this still available?

                  Hi Audrey, can't say I remember a discount scheme - but if it did happen it was a very long time ago.

                  However, if you order via Amazon you do generate a small commission for us if you use the correct link. If you can tell me precisely what it is you are ordering (if ordering from Amazon) I can provide the appropriate link.

                      Thanks for the link Ian, but I had already gone through Nectar and decided on the 2Tb WD My Book. Sorry.
