DD - I think that's way too expensive. Lacie 120/160GB should be in that price range if not lower.

i built myself a external segate drive 500GB for 4000 RS last week. The drive cost me 3700 + 300 for the external casing. Its bigger than the passwort WD drives and also has an adapter. Since i dont carry it around much so it works for me.

Transcend has now come up with 320GB external drives (USB, no external power required) for around Rs. 6500.

someone at my workplace got a sony 250gb thumb drive from China. I was shocked when he told me about this. These are fake i guess. Have to check with him if its really 250GB.

Ask him to feel happy if it's 2.5 GB & works fine for more than a week!

I picked up a Maxtor 500GB External drive for Rs 4800 from Computer Warehouse in Bangalore. Works great so far.

Correct. You can find such flattering imitations, that any one can be fooled. The drive can "show" it's full capacity, copy (only the listing), do everything, but when you connect it again - you will find only the listing but no content.

120GB in such a small package, at that price ?

Yes. Didn't get a comprehensive reply earlier. Had checked Gopz before.
Will just rephrase the q a bit. I want to know -
1. - Pocket size external hard drive in preferrably - 320gb to 500 gb range
2.- best place to buy from around NCR.
3.- Does any comes without the need for adapter power supply (its a pain to carry an adapter along).
4.- Approx price for them.
Help is appreciated.

Harry i think if you go above 320gig then you will N33D a power adaptor. i have bought a transcend 250 gig external for 4200. 320gig was around 6K i think. On the other hand a 500Gig external with a power adaptor will be around 4.5K.

Thanks mate. I guess have to be satisfied with 320 or 250 gig in this case as i cant carry that crappy adaptor everywhere

You don't get pocket drives with 500GB capacity mate, you'll have to go for 320GB which is one of the largest in portable drives.

If you want 500GB you'll have to go in for the powered external drives, I got one for 750GB from western digital, it's called Western Digital MyBook.

Pretty handy and comes in a neat case with a power supply. This is kept on your desk for handy data transfer and backups.

I keep a separate 120Gb seagate freeagent drive for portable use.
