Bargain Hard Drive?

  shaduf 14:52 23 Mar 03

QVC the shopping channel are selling an Archos 60Gb External Hard Drive for £139.It's 7200 rpm and USB 2.0. Is this a bargain?
I'd quite like another drive an an external at this price would save me some hassle. Would it be quick enough though?

Yeah I was watching that, shaduf, the missus had to hold me back. Looks good.

Are there any snags with an external HD? I could only run it on USB1 OS - W98SE. Thanks David

If your going to be transferring large amounts of data it could take it's time.
