This drive has been posted before a few times (cdiscount deal) its around £50 delivered at amazon, play, ebuyer etc.

The cdiscount deal threads:



If you do order from there don't forget £2 off delivery.

Hope this helps.
For anyone that is interested, I have opened mine up and it has a Hitachi Deskstar SATA II HDP725050GLA360. It has good reviews for being very quiet and energy efficient, but it does have a slow average seek time of about 18ms, I think. I was contemplating rebuilding my PC with it and using the old drive in the Buffalo case, but not sure that I would be happy with the performance in games etc. Still, it is very good value at £45 odd, as to buy the drive alone would cost you about that.
I've just bought one of these and had the issues described here and can't access it now. Update the fw before it hapens or you are stuffed.
