500GB Buffalo for £54.04

Personally wouldn't touch another Buffalo. Got one here, still alive but does make some unhealthy sounds on a daily basis. Won't be long before I need to rip it out and stick it into a permanent host machine.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: 500GB external hard drive £59.99

I've got a 1TB in my PC.
Presently has about 80% unallocated as even 150GB /home seems excessive. Grin

Re: 500GB external hard drive £59.99

You make a good point.  Hard drives get bigger but most of the capacity remains unused.  The capacity is a good selling point for suppliers of new PCs.
