Now with a PC Specialist Quad Core i7-3770, 16GB RAM, 180GB SSD, GeForce GTX560 Ti Graphics Card, Blu-Ray & DVD R/W Burners and can't wait to set it up. Now up and running.  What a difference in Blu-Ray footage.

Unless you're worried about lugging a PSU around, I'd buy a larger mains powered one. (about £100 for a 1Tb from PC world)

If you wanted to use it like a huge memory stick then fair enough

I have maybe 10 big HDD around and don't (personally) see the point of the pocket ones - but I've never had the need.

I have a couple of similar portable hard drives and have found them to be great for working with your laptop especially since they are powered by the usb port, they are also fast enough for capturing dv and hdv.

You've hit the nail on the head, Dave. That's just what I don't want to do. I already have 5 External HD's and don't like the idea of lugging one around especially since I would only be using it when in the caravan. Also as John says it runs off the USB port. My objective is to do some editing/experimenting with video while being subjected to Scottish holiday weather :D and don't like the one HD setup with the laptop. The 320 Hd size is fine for this purpose and larger one wouldn't be necessary. (remember these words being said when I had a 100MB HD:D)
