I know it was cheaper at Pixmania recently with voucher codes etc but I think this has been the cheapest it's been on Amazon for a while. Finally nice to see these coming down below £100. Probably due…

I'll just throw this out there since we're all looking for the best deals. Anyone that thinks this is a better buy than a standard 3TB that's about £20 cheaper give or take, depending on the weather. They may not be. They are by the companies own admission about 20 per cent more reliable and you're paying for that. So all in all, if you're backing up, there is no more value to be had buying these than there is buying any old decent 3TB drive. Pay less and in the long run you buy more drives or pay more for these and in the long run you buy less drives. Neither route saves you money.

I also question the reliability of these drives. I've read no real independent tests anywhere and I've searched. All I've found on these drives is the marketing info by the company (that gets repeated in reviews) that says these are better. I don't usually take marketing info that seriously but it seems a lot of people do put a lot of faith in these drives in particular, so perhaps I'm missing something.

And as far as the price to buy at and whether you should wait. Why not let the people who are willing to wait do that and the people that feel the price is right, let them buy now. We don't all have to think the same. I personally fall on the side of waiting since that disaster that sent the prices sky rocketing really upset the natural order of things. So drives have always seemed more expensive than they should be after the disaster.

I'm happy paying £70 for an internal 3TB and that's my personal limit as that falls in line with prices pre disaster and is the same price I paid years ago.

£90 soon pleeeeeease.
Why don't you just spend another £10 and stop moaning?

Because this is HotUKDeals not IWantItThisMinuteRegardlessOfPriceUKNon-Deals....

you will wait forever and never buy anything with that mentality

You will buy everything that's reduced by a penny with that mentality.

Many people set reasonable 'target prices' and wait until a product hits that price - and most products go down in price. This will almost certainly be below £90 in a few weeks/months.

what a moron - no I wont!!

with your illogic, you wait till its £90, then the latest item comes, so you wait till that's reduced to a cheap price - so you will never buy a drive

I'll ignore your childish insults since I realise it is difficult for people like yourself to form reasoned arguments...

No, with the 'target price' system, you simply wait until it drops to that price then buy it. If a newer version comes out in the meantime then you have to weigh up whether the improvement adds value (in your own opinion) and then either adjust your target price, or set a new target price for the new improved model.

For example, I am only willing to spend about £80 on a 3TB WD Red and £120 on a 4TB WD Red. Both are likely to drop below these prices in the next 6 months or so, especially when 5 or 6TB hard drives are released.

ill ignore your childish comments too
