    Both this and the WD 1TB 2.5" drive are 12.5mm high alas, which will some laptops but not all as most are designed around 9.5mm thick drives.

    Exactly. These drives are fine for going in miniature desktops, but not for regular laptops or external cases.

    9.5mm high 1TB drives should be with us this year though.

    I don't think they'll do it this year, there's so little demand and 3.5" 500GB platters are recent enough.

    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
