    Been considering getting one for a few days now. Are they good? I've heard good things about them, and I'm tempted.

    why not just get a HDD and an external caddy separately and build it up yourself?

    i'll edit an example in, in a moment (need to go digging)

    edit:

    par example:

    THIS and THIS (£15.26 and £55.10 respectivly) for a total of: £70.36 which would give you a 750GiB exHDD

    Caddys HERE
    HDDs HERE (linking these pages incase you want to have a look at caddy designs... and/or different HDDs aswell...) (just make sure you get things that are compatible.. [i.e. if you get a SATA HDD then you need a SATA enclosure etc])

    and that way you can have it how you want it, and save money in the process

    also, i would recommend using SCAN over OcUK... (SCAN have great aftersales support )


    or if you are dead set on the free agent then it is HERE on SCAN

    Of course I considered that, but I like the look of the Seagate one quite a lot, and it saves the hassle of putting it together.

    Plus I've yet to actually like any of the caddy designs, it seems that no one can make one that works well and actually looks nice enough to have on a desk, too.

    And, OcUK is nearby to me, so I can go and pick it up myself.
