Thread: Any suggestions on portable external hd

  1. #1

    Default Any suggestions on portable external hd

    Ive looked a few places but cant really find what im looking for.

    Ideal (in my perfect world): (if its possible)
    1+ tb
    7200 rpm
    eSATA
    pocketish size
    16mb cache

    More likely:
    500+gb
    pocket size
    anything other then USB connection

    probably going to settle for: This One.

    500 gb
    pocket size
    5,400rpm
    8 mb cache
    USB2.0

    Any ideas? Even if they just happen to be products you like that don't meet my desired specs. Thanks.

    Newegg.com - Thermaltake N0012US Aluminum & Plastic 3.5" Silver USB 2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure - External Enclosures I use this enclosre and it is excellent. I originally bought a WD Mybook (mostly because they're pretty cheap). The first one failed, and I had to RMA it. With the second one, after a few weeks it started acting funny. Transfer speeds were slow after about a minute of use, and it just failed sometimes. I decided either this drive, too, was dying.. or the enclosure was bad. So I took a gamble and bought that enclosure. Well, turns out the HDD inside worked great once I put it in there. WD makes decent hdd's, but I wouldn't trust their enclosures anymore.

    So yeah, my thought is.. if you are not afraid of plugging in the drive and putting in a few screws, get a decent enclosure, and put whatever drive you want inside. That one is for a 3.5" drive, though by pocket sized I'm thinking you may mean "2.5" (you might be able to fit mine in your front pocket if you were wearing overalls, haha).

    Wow, completely forgot the fact that I dont have to buy one with a drive in it. Thanks for reminding me of that. As of right now i am leaning towards, This Enclosure and This drive. Any Thoughts?
