Yep thats a good deal but the Argos one is effectively £55 anyway and you don't have to wait for delivery. And no faffing about with any discount codes

However you have to buy something else from Argos (that you wanted anyway) to get your extra £5! the Tesco deal you get it straight away.

Well its another option on the table, and if the £5 goes to something you wanted to get anyway, like for example Heavy Rain and Final Fantasy are £32 in Argos currently, then you did effectively pay £55, or if preferred got one of those those games for £27. Take your pick.

Oh and I clearly stated in the title that the £5 voucher was for next purchase, so no misleading information.

Its funny how ppl 'defend' their deals.

It's £60 at argos with a £5 voucher, or £54.97 delivered at Tesco.

The OP thinks buying from argos is easier as there's "...no faffing about with any discount codes" (hardly taxing!!!) yet fails to see buying from Tesco:

a) saves your wallet £5.03, and you dont have to buy anything else from them.
b) means you wont pay any petrol money
c) means you dont have to travel there and "faff about" parking, paying, and then waiting for your 'number' to be called.

Better deal at tesco

It's obvious tesco is the better deal.

Better Return policy too

why do hard drive threads bring internet idiots out in droves arguing about everything :thinking:
#20
What I don't get is the tescos deal gets 1800+% and this only gets 100% odd, I know you get the free delivery but why the difference.....

probably because the Tesco deal is £5 cheaper (plus advantage card points).

Yes you get a £5 voucher to spend .. but you still have to buy something else in order to use it .. so however you dress it up you still have £60+ leave your pocket as opposed to less than £55 at Tesco

:thumbsup:
#22
Yes and however you look at it the Tesco one is the best deal as it is a whole 3p cheaper so that gets my vote.

PC World is cheaper (if you discount clubcard vouchers and cashback).

But it's good to have similar deals, running across several retailers, it gives the consumer more choice. :thumbsup:

I voted hot for this (Argos) deal.

Just a pity we all know how the country is getting obese and going to the dogs when no-one want to step outside.

As for the 10HD PC world thing, the HDD is only collect in-store so the code wont work (only works on delivery options). Tesco is cheaper but some might prefer Argos and v.v.. IMO the deal matches Tesco -.-
#25
still can't see the MASSIVE difference:whistling:
#26
Picked one of these up today (thanks OP!). Seems fine but I have to say it is LOUD. If that's an issue for anyone it might be worth looking at one of the PC World or Tesco alternatives.

Staples are doing a 1tb io omega drive for 64 with a 5 back voucher, the drive inside is a segate and silent

Ewwww Seagate, no thanks.


Here we go again:-

Seagate... I had one and it failed after just ...

Hitachi... Wouldn't trust them Deathstar's!!!

IBM... OH NO! Not IBM, I lost everything once...

Maxstor....NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Samsungs... Don't ever ever......

Toshiba - Arghhhhhhhhh!!!!

To the people who voted hot thanks, to the cold voters I'm not forcing you to go with the deal just presenting another option. An option that I preferred (and bought), and some others may too.

There's no pleasing some people.

i know what you is saying - I have got the iomega 1TB from comet - add 5% disc - 5HD code.

I have got a 'few' :whistling: of them and they have, in the past, came with Seagates and Samsungs. This time they contain Seagates - touch wood - NONE have or are failing! :roll:

I can not see how to enter the disc code for either currys or pcworld?:?

What beats all other "cheaper deals" is the fact that i dont have to wait for so-and-so long to get it delivered. It takes half an hour between deciding to buy and actually having it up and running. I hate waiting for deliveries. Plus deliveries get messed up, post/delivery men get sidetracked, i'm not able to waste my day off looking out the window for them not to show up, etc, etc, etc. Plus northern ireland is a bitch when it comes to delivery charges (occasional "free" deliveries happen, but only very occasionally...)

Whoever commented that "argos experience is degrading" - get a life and stick your head outside. Bank queues anyone ? THAT is degrading.

Oh, and i snapped the last of them drives in five city area (armagh/dungannon/cookstown/poradown/craigavon). No more...

Get it delivered to work, Einstein. Then you don't have to take a day off.
Are you really saying that going to a shop to pick something up is more convenient that having it delivered to you? Talk about Irish logic...
I haven't been in a bank queue for ten years- something called the internet hit mainland UK and we all do our banking at home now- although I can see you arguing how its more convenient to visit your local branch than to bank at home.
5 cities?! hardly 'cities' mate- 'towns' at a push.
#36
First, you missed the point. I dont like to wait for deliveries. Period. The rest are excuses to not like it even more. I'd rather go and pick it up myself rather than wait for several days.

Second, i'm not irish. Not that there is anything wrong with irish, nice folk.

Third, i bank online, but occasionally i do need to talk to someone in the know and not the dumb faceless CSR on the phone who knows squat about squat. I'm face-to-face sort of a person.

Fourth, for me it's cities. I dont like "capitals" and big places without any green, so anything over 20k is a city.

And what's with the tone ? Did i offend your mom or something ?

As for the drive, it works wonders. Backing up my stuff now... Brilliant...

I'm still waiting for mine to be delivered, which sorta proves the point that you were trying to make :thumbsup:

By the way, places like Birmingham & Liverpool are cities. Good game yesterday by the way...maybe that's the reason for the tone:giggle:

Any drive can fail, Samsung had a bad batch of F1 drives mines just failed after 13 months of very light use. I purchased this because it came with a 3 year warranty, so they must have faith in the drive.

This thread makes me laugh... LOL

However this thread (http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/646898/free-tyre-tread-keyring) got me laughing the most!

BTW. The internal dive in this is a Hitachi 7200rpm 32MB cache Sata (Deskstar 7K1000.C). Got my drive from Tesco's Direct and busted open the enclosure to get the drive out and installed into my PC.

You need to brute force the bottom cover as it's held on my 4 plastic clips on the longest edges 3/4 of an inch from the ends.

NOTE: I tested the USB drive first before removing the drive.
