There's nothing wrong with this deal. It works out cheaper than the other one posted a few days ago, which was £96.50, and it's from a more relaible retailer.

Heat added.
#2
Just Ordered.

Previously ordered the one from pixmania - but it turned uyp with an EU plug, and they had the cheak to include a cheep empty plug, which would mean i had to hard wire the plug myself, and therefore void the warranty! sending it back.

Re-ordered from Amazon!

cancelled my ebuyer order and ordered from amazon.ta

I don't understand the logic in cancelling an ebuyer order just to get it at the same price from Amazon. Personally I've never had any issue's with ebuyer.

Same price,but Amazon is far better when warranty claims are needed.even if it was a few £ more id still get it from amazon over Ebuyer. Ebuyer arn't as good as they used to be,shame really as i used to use them all the time.

Thanks for the enlightment, although personally I've never had a problem with either. Ebuyer free delivery has usually been fairly rapid for me, normally I found it takes 2 working days.

You pays your money, you takes your choice.

I've never had a problem with ebuyer, i've ordered a lot of things from them and when i've had a faulty product they've sent me a free replacement straight away

Unless it's actually an adapter, then: That's illegal ! :x

THE PLUGS AND SOCKETS ETC (SAFETY) REGULATIONS 1994

Part 2 clearly states:

"PART II - FITTED PLUG PROVISIONS
7 Part II introduces a new requirement that most domestic electrical appliances which operate at a voltage of not less than 200 volts must be
supplied fitted with a correctly fused and approved standard plug. As an alternative to fitting a standard plug an appliance may be fitted with a non-
UK plug provided that an approved conversion plug is fitted."

Also:
"9 Responsibility for fitting a standard plug or converter plug will fall to the first supplier of the appliance in the UK."

To satisfy part 9, the person fitting the plug would need to be deemed "competent". and if ya need to ask for the definition of the word "competent" when pertinent to electrical regulations, then it's safe to assume the person asking the question isn't competent ;-)

Very tempted as it's very cheap but I'm thinking it's worth paying more for esata - similarly I would much prefer Amazon rather than ebuyer as I find Amazon are very quick and simple with returns whereas ebuyer just seem a complete disaster for me at least. They've mucked up a return for a faulty optical drive in just about every way possible and even just trying to spend the credit from that they've made another series of errors which according to customer services they can do nothing about.

I got a further £15 off - if you are eligible click on the application flyer for an Amazon rewards mastercard, took 2 minutes and instantly activated to Amazon account, easy.

Then, checkout for £94.99 and Amazon credit your account with £15 ....kerching kerching kerching

Nope - this is a desktop drive which will require a separate power supply, the largest USB powered drive is currently 1TB for around 130 pounds.

I would go with Amazon every day of the week and twice on weekends!

Amazon's after-sale service is unrivalled by anyone to be honest...
Plus, I had a very bitter experience with Ebuyer that left me £200 short..... Ebuyer +ACER to be fair...

Even if Amazon had no nectar/cashback, I'd still go with Amazon.....even for a few more pounds...

ps: I don't work for them and I don't get paid, just in case!

Couldn't find it at 1st, but if you goto the main Amazon page, click on "Amazon on your mobile" on the left of the page, then it should be on one of the tabs near the top of the page. Going to try it now and order one, good luck :-D

Just filled it in now and purchased 2 TB external HDD for under £80 sweet. Rep added and heat to the OP. :thumbsup:
#22
The credit card says that you have to spend £25 before you get the £15...so can you buy the hard drive and it will take it off that purchase, or do u have to use it on another purchase?
banned#23
I can confirm the £15 off when you sign up for amazons credit card, did it a few months ago when 12 brita maxtra cartridges were going for £25, so i bought 2 boxes or 24 maxtra cartridges delivered for £35. But back then you had to spend £50 or more for the £15 off. If its £25 now, then thats a even better deal.

Make the purchase and £15 is deducted off your first credit card bill.

After registering, go to checkout, new Amazon card will be already set up for you as a paying option ( check your email and check your new card number ), select the Amazon card instead of your normal card, wait for your 2TB.

Amazon aren't honoring next day on them. I ordered one yesterday afternoon with a prime account and have a delivery estimate of 2nd June.

Bought 2. Great

heat - bought. I couldnt figure out rep on this new layout though.

next best I could see was the Samsung F3 at Scan without a caddy, adding a caddy would have been ~£10 so this one for ~£10 more from a retailer I like is a good option for me.
#32
I should have asked this question before ordering, but can the drive be taken out of the enclosure and fitted into a PC?
If not, I will just return it for a refund.

I'm assuming that it's a better drive for my PC?
I wanted the enclosure to house my spare HDD ideally, but that's not too important.

well 1st you need to confirm the connections your PC has for hard dirves
then compare the specs of the WD drive and externals available
remember once you split that drive you lose warrenty on the external
