Just about to buy this: http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.asp?driveid=466#jump22 any advice, reviews, ideas… Anything?
Have you checked the reviews online? This might help you
Have the exact same HD although in the 1TB version. I have it about a year and a bit. Never caused me any trouble whatsoever.
Have both a Seagate and WD externals neither has failed in over 3 years, would definitely recommend either of them.
funnily enough i am looking at the exact same thing on ebay hoping to buy one lol
Also, if I fancied getting a dual Ethernet enclosure some time in the future, will I be able to use the same drives?
Western Digital or Seagate are the way to go, dont ever, i’ll type it again… dont
everbuy Maxtor drives
Looks at his maxtor drive
Never had a problem with it in the past…2 years?
Looks at his desk with a dead WD drive, shakes head
WD has normally been ok for me, although the last one I bought lasted under 6 months before it died…pretty annoyed about that. Was a 500GB, none of my seagates have given me that clicking sound of death. Still have it maybe if I’m successful on flashden some day I might be able to pay that huge fee to potentially get my data back…
