Cables by Ollie

Does this drive come with power and data cables, if so, how long? I am planning to use this drive in a home-made external enclousure. Thanks very much!

Response by andrewn
Hard drives never come with power cables since those are physically attached to the PSU. It almost certainly won't come with a SATA cable either, those are normally supplied with the motherboard, or bought separately.

Question  RAID 5 by mellink

I've got the slighter older HD501LJ in my system and fancy abit of RAID 5 using my P5N-D motherbaord.

Can I use the old drive with 2 more of these? How close do they need to be matched is it just the size of the drive and a bottleneck will occur on the slowest drive?

Thanks Rob

Answer by jorged on Tuesday, July 5, 2011
Raid would only apply to the 2 new matched drives.

Comment by big al

is it possible to use this as an external drive

Response by andrewn
In a drive enclosure, or a docking device such as quick code 37256, yes. Not designed to be used 'on it's own' as an external drive, though.

Question  Work with Dell Dimension 8400? by chrisw87

Would this work inside my ancient Dell Dimension 8400 as the stock HDD has finally died and I can't afford to buy a whole new system yet.

Answer by philm on Thursday, March 10, 2011
As long as it has SATa ports on it. It will be fine.

Question  Raid 0 by Ben

Hi i want to buy 2 of these for my build,

If i set them up in Raid 0, do i have 500gb of space, or 1TB of space total?

Answer by andrewn on Sunday, January 30, 2011
1TB usable capacity from 2x500Gb drives in raid-0 (Raid-1 would give you a 500Gb array). Remember to back-up your data, if one drive in a raid-0 array fails you will lose all data on the array.
