    If you want to use XBox live, you'll need to lock the drive.

    I've had Western Diggies that won't lock, so I steer clear of them.

    As {909} said it could be a false economy this one if you are going to hold anything important.

    I have a IBM 120GB drive but only use it for building dvd's ripping video etc... I would'nt trust it with anything important (not that it's let me down yet).

    ive had an IBM hd for while now, and has been perfect, many people say ibm's are crap, but i guess its the luck of the draw.
