External Hard Drive advice

  Nick1981 09:36 19 Aug 07

Im looking to purchase an external hard drive. I need approx 120gb. Does any one have any advise on which drive to go for? I would like one that has a fast transfer rate and is quiet. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You will not notice the difference in transfer speeds and I would go for a cheap one..250Gb here for £52 and by a good maker.....click here

Maplins also have some at around the same price for 250 GB

GANDALF <|:-)> says you won't notice the difference.

This is because USB.2 itself is a slight bottleneck and data transfer occurs less rapidly than when mounted conventionally as an internal HD.
