Hi im new to the forums and just looking for some advice here.
i'm wanting to get an external hard drive to store stuff. Since they're so expensive i've decided to go for a normal 3.5inch hard drive with a enclosure to store it in. that way i could just plug it into my laptop via usb.
i've allready decided on a harddrive-
now my options are
i could either get this case-
which would work fine over usb.
or i could get these-
PCMCIA card for laptop
enclosure with ESATA connection
with these i could run that same harddrive via ESATA which apprently has a transfer speed of 1.5GB/s and thats only for an extra £20
do anyone know about this ESATA? i've only just found out about it while doing a bit of research...
and what about this scan.com? i've never heard of them or bought anything from them. just found them doing a google search. anyone know if they are reliable?
and if anyone have any advice or tips feel free to post them :happy:
