After seeing these at £35:

<a href="http://www.hotukdeals.com/visit?t=897159&hukdm=353&d=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hotukdeals.com%2Fdeals%2Fbuffalo-juststore-500gb-usb-2-0-slimline-portable-external-hard-drive-black-35-a%2F865998%3Fpage%3D2"

I thought I'd have a look for them, and saw that the Stafford store had them on sale, listed at £50 on the shelf. I asked an assistant to scan the item, only to find that they have been reduced to £25!!

I can confirm that this is the 2.5 Portable version (powered by USB).
Manufacturers code - HD-PV500u2/BK

Looks as though ASDA have not listed the item correctly on their system as the shelf label for the product lists item number 507353.

Worth calling your local store (I think that they're only in a limited number - & not online) and checking the product code 507353 and barcode 5060126038214

I bought three and left one unit at Stafford store (gotta spread the love, eh?), they may have had more in their warehouse?

Yup you missed the point so many do, the difference between a 3.5in drive and a 2.5in one.

I know that these are in limited supply and only at a handful of stores, so maybe worth a call to their customer service team..

Yes. You've missed this same debate about fourteen thousand times over the last 3 years you've been a member.
2.5" USB drive = quite small, powered from the cable.
3.5" external drive = very big and heavy, powered with it's own plug

They're both storage, but they're very different so comparing the two is daft. But people keep doing it. And usually with an introduction of "are you mad, I've found one that's twice the capacity for just a few quid more, you're really stupid". As they make themselves look stupid.

FYI..Weston super mare, doesn't even stock External HDD's
