£70.44 @ Amazon
Seems like a good price for 3tb portable HDD...Just in time for the upcoming ps4 system update allowing use of externally HDDs to store your games.

Customer services were unhelpful and rude even I had to use them!

Backblaze rates Toshiba pretty highly for reliability

Thanks OP!
Been looking for cheapish 3TB/4TB HDD for backup purposes.

​Yep an update is coming.

Thanks, finally got myself a new HD. Was waiting for Seagate's 4TB price to come down, but disappointingly it went up. Does anyone know if these Toshiba Canvio drives can be stripped from their cases? I don't like feeling dependant on one whole unit (HD + case) if something goes wrong, like in the case of WD hds. Also being able to plug them directly to the motherboard through SATA is a plus.
#19
Thanks OP. Have ordered.

Now need to ideally find an internal hard drive to match - need to add another drive to my NAS and this is going to be the back up to that!

I see what you mean there. Just an unbiased though to be the devil's advocate: the error margin for the Toshiba drives on that table is rather big
#22
Damn!

It said 97% sold, I went to check my bank balance which took all of 45 seconds and then they were gone.

They haven't really tested many of them.

Next time order 1st, then check your bank balance as you can always cancel the order before they debit your account. Anyways, on the upside your bank balance remains the same so perhaps your funds are meant for something else.

just got one after being on the waiting list! very pleased and will solve my PS4 storage woes

Actually, I have found that not to be true. last summer, I placed an order on Amazon at about 02.00 one Saturday morning and tried to cancel about two minutes later when I realised I had made a mistake regarding the item's details yet Amazon would not cancel the order and by the time I actually got a response from customer services some time on the Monday afternoon, it had already dispatched and I had to go through a returns charade before I could get my money back and be able to pay for the correct item. I've been very wary ever since.

I've never had anything but great experiences with Amazon. when I can't cancel an order, I just refuse delivery and they refund it straight away. they let me return an opened hdd and phone case before Christmas because I didn't like the quality.

Not sure if the internal HDD is 2.5" or not, but if it is and you don't like having an external device connected 24/7 you could transplant it into the PS4.

​you might as well keep it external and have the additional space, though right?

Portable = 2.5".

And you can tell in this instance as there is no connection for a power supply on the case; therefore it is bus powered and cannot be 3.5".

[edit] It also says so in the title of the item page on Amazon.
