View Full Version : 320G Maxtor Mobile Hardisk

I just saw s 320G Maxtor Hardisk going for about RM650 while I was shopping for a 120G hardisk. The 120G hardisk was going for RM450 with 3 years warran
Wonder if anyone has used such huge hardisk? It comes with a separate DC adaptor and needs power supply to work. Whereas our small hadisk only has a USB port.
If anyone has used this, do share your experience. I am considering about getting it for my digital photos.
I have about 7 of them (3.5 inch external hard drives) of various brands. I find the Maxtor external ones are the most reliable, even though you pay more, especially for the 'One Touch' function which I never use. You can also buy a normal 3.5 inch drive and various other external casings (which includes power supply) separately, which ends up being much cheaper.
If you only use the hard drive sparingly, mostly for storage only, then the latter, cheaper option may be good enough. If you use the hard drive a lot, or for continuous use (for example, for data processing), then I suggest you go for the more expensive fully branded stuff (or get an expensive separate casing). The more expensive brands come with better power, hard drive and temperature management. My data is all priceless, so I rather go for the safer, more expensive, option (although nothing is 100% safe).

I can shoot for about 3GBs of photos a day :D that should give me about 100 days :D
but the big ones are leceh abit... size and the power cables.... unlike the usb ones.
But I sugest you get the smaller ones... like usb 60gb... then burn a DVD every 4+GB. at least if u lost the portable hdd... u dont loss all 60gb of photos. I had the unfortunate happened to me early this year... 60gb loss when the hdd got "burned" luckily got backup in cd and dvd to restore them and they replaced a blank hdd.

I use my hardisk to save photos and that takes up lots of space.
The 320G harisk seems to be cost effective and that really draws me to it. The major setback is the bulky size that makes it not so mobile as it won't be convenient to bring it along when I travel.
