Assume you posted for the good and benefit of users? If so, those who like the deal will benefit and those not interested will either pass by or vote cold. Maybe people prefer Dixons to BestBuy - who knows!!

Can guarantee cold votes now that you have risen to the bait. Fixed? - I hardly think so.

That is my point if someone is not interested and voted cold just because of that then......It is just silly.

I think you need to make it really clear that this is a 2.5" usb drive that doesn't require an external power source. The cold votes are probably people thinking they can get a larger capacity 3.5" drive for less money. This seems to happen a lot on HUKD.

Or maybe it's because this has been the price on Amazon all over the Christmas period.

Woah there, hoss. You've been a member a fair while, so know that it's not uncommon for a deal to chill a few degrees just after it's posted. Moreso if you post something that's more expensive than very similar products.

1TB portable (2.5") drives are typically around the £70 mark lately.
This one has a neat swappable connectivity gimmick which marks it apart from other portable drives, but whether that's worth paying an extra £15 for (plus whatever the cost is of the new connections) is debatable.

I'd prefer to save a few notes and get the cheaper options, personally, but I've not voted as I've no idea whether this model can be found cheaper...

Edit - typed this about half an hour ago, but the boss came in and I forgot about it until now, lol. Yours were the only posts in the thread at the time I typed this... ;)

Only reason why I posted it is because I saw this drive on bestbuy website yesterday and this morning when i saw that 500GB with over 200 degreed I was shocked.

What do you think about this one? http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/2-5-usb-3-0-1tb-samsung-s2-portable/844253

I agree my friend if this dudes comments (Murielson's) that people will vote cold based upon comments, then it does kinda make a mockery of the site. Surely we should be basing votes on if we feel the deal is good or not, and not if we like a comment.

This is a good price for the product but I think Les Alanos has hit the nail on the head - I think some votes may be cast without realising this is different type of drive to the standard usb2.0 drives out there which are much cheaper.

TBH I stick with my assertion that personally I'd prefer a £70 USB drive - but it's horses for courses isn't it.

From my personal view point a portable drive gets films etc. put onto it and then it gets plugged into a dvd (divx) player for the films to be watched (or on occasion it gets plugged into a friend or relative's pc to have files copied to or from it). Whilst it's possible I might upgrade my pc to include some usb3 slots at some point in the next year or so, that wouldn't actually help me any since the dvd player only takes usb2.

As I say, though, it's down to individual requirements.
I'd imagine many are in the same boat as me. And I can see usb3 being more important on a 3.5" drive than on a 2.5" drive (if you want fast transfers it's probably because it's a drive you're using a lot and one that's likely only used on one machine, so the larger cheaper drives might make more sense)

There will be people who want a portable drive that's usb3 compatible, though, and the two deals you've posted will probably suit those few people down to the ground... (Which of the two suits those people best will again be down to the individuals' requirements.)

Unfortunately such is life chaps. Some people read the deals in detail and some pass them by without knowing what is going on or vote cold by comparing to a non like product as Les Alanos points out.

The thing is not to get too uptight about it and keep posting for those who may get benefit. Hot and cold voting can be influenced by many things and it is really not worth worrying about.

By the way - thanks for posting the original deal Downhill. I personally went for the 500GB Seagate from Dixons at £39.99 posted a while ago but am still in the market for good value portable hard drive memory, hence finding your deal when searching for drives. I have a desktop 1TB and am after something smaller based on price etc and have set myself a £50 tops price limit. Helps to also not be in any rush at the moment.

Editted to add that you are now in positive heat rather than chilly cold!!

If you are after Desktop Size (3.5'') this VERBATIM 1TB USB 3.0 from ebuyer costing £60.90 seems to be a good deal. IF you are after small 2.5'' than I do not think that you can get 1TB with USB 3.0 for £50. If you find one, let me know. THANKS FOR COMMENT!!!
If you are

also agressive defense of your product gets peoples backs up
calm down and just state the difference else people will react to post content rather than the object in question

the comparison with the 500gb drive is not actually valid as its a better value deal.
in comparison to similar sized drives you are paying double for the flexibility on this drive compared to the smaller one.
500gb can be had fairly often for 40 or so quid so a max of 7.50 premium there (may be less premium currently), 1tb for 70 so a 15quid premium here.
