Advice on purchase of external USB hard drive

  Al94 21:00 03 Sep 2004

Help on this one please, I have seen various external hard drives up to 200gb advertised on ebay at prices I consider reasonable with good feedback. How crucial is the inclusion of a fan for cooling purposes as this seems to be one of the distinguishing factors?

No external HD that I have used has ever had a fan. Aldi are selling a 160Gb for £90 at the moment.

TY Gandalf, I didn't think it was that necessary, also that was a great offer but we don't have Aldi in N. Ireland.
