Plus £4.79 postage.

I dont think its that much of a deal when you can get 500gb for about £10 more, it would be a good price if it was a 2.5"
#3
Its 3.5" im sure as its in the desktop section as well not portable section, and the description says "it's easy to use - just connect the power adapter; then connect the USB cable into your PC or Mac "

Is this 3.5 or 2.5? The specs say 3.5, but the picture is the 2.5" drive.


Indeed it is. I was close to wading in and saying 'but this is a 2.5" drive, not a 3.5" drive', because, sure as hell, when someone posts a deal on a 2.5" drive, someone ALWAYS compares it with a 3.5" one. Every time!

But in this case, it looks like the wrong piccy on the ebuyer website, but it's under the 'external desktop drives' section, so it is indeed 3.5".

Still an okay price for a 250GB HDD, IMO but as already pointed out, you can get alot more for not much more.

I reckon this is a rubbish deal. I got a 250gb nice slimline 2.5" for a couple of quid more last week from tesco.

And £10 more gets you double? Why wouldn't you?
#6
I reckon 3.5" should be put in the title then.
#7
Pictures been updated on eBuyer to suit a 3.5 inch drive.

ok its not the best value per gig but in these dark days of the credit crunch 250GB will more than be enough for most people so the cheaper the better. I would pay the difference myself but if the budgets limited like it is for most then this will do the job very nicely thank you. :thumbsup:

Agreed... I got that one too... Iomega in a nice aluminum casing, the most recommended drive in this monts Computer Active Mag.... That offer still on?

Something to note. We used to use these Maxtor drives and they use a cable with two usb connectors on rather than one. Might be an issue if your short on usb ports.

I got a 1TB from amazon recently, the same make as this for £75
Its pretty good, the power adapter is quite small and has a slide on 2 pin and 3 pin accessory. The USB cable uses mini USB on the drive. Only thing is it seems to be fussy about USB ports, it only seems to work on my back USB ports and not my front ones, others in the past have worked on my front USB but then I have recently changed my case, I have a powerful PSU so thats not it.
These 3.5 drives only have 1 USB connecter (the 2.5 drives come with a 2 USB connector) which is all you need.

I think its quieter than the iomega prestege desktop drive, that used to make a lot of noise when plugged in and starting up the drive!

COLD for the following reasons:

a) postage prices
b) it's a 3.5" drive and requires a power adapter and not 2.5" so seems expensive to me


You can spend double the money and get 4x the storage (i.e. buy a 1tb drive instead)

:thumbsup:

Waste of money for most - you can pick up the 2.5" (very very good) Iomega drive from Tesco for £39. Portable, reliable and very durable, bagged one myself about 3 weeks ago.

you can also buy a Range Rover for twice the cost of a Ford Mondeo but not everyone can afford it!
Nice attitude to have.
