Are you looking for specifically a Portable Hard drive or is a USB Passport an option?

I would recommend the passports as they hold just as much and much smaller and quicker when transferring files between the comp and USB Passport.

any electronics store in hoan kiem will sell some external hard drives. I recently got a WD 1Tb for roughly $120. That's not a bad price.

Do yourself a favor and stay away from seagate drives though. had two of them crash on me and lost all my data in recent yrs.

ly nam de doesn't have them. you go to those "big" electronic stores on tran hung dao, hai ba trung, near hoan kiem area. they blast those loud music for you to come.

i bought a 1tb passport just a few weeks ago for 2.4m

Thanks NickinNam and Ruben.

I'll check out Phuc Anh and found it on google map. Xa Dan street.

Ruben, where did you buy your portable HD if you don't mind me asking.

Cheers.

I looked at the Western Digital Hard Drive at Pico Mall on Hai Bat Trung street.

They have Western Digital Passports (1 TB).

Quick question here (as I could not ask clearly VNese language to the salesman.

These passports say "3.0 USB."

Are they compatible with USB 2.0?

My laptop is a few years old and only has USB 2.0.

yes

^ Thanks again for the help, ruben3.

OK, last question.

Does the Western Digital Passport 1 TB come with a USB chord?

I do not have any.

If they do not come with it, how much will I pay for a 2.0 USB chord at Pico.
