Okay I know this was listed about a month ago but it's in and out of stock like a yoyo. Currently in stock and a pretty good price for what it is, you may be able to get extra deductions with voucher codes but haven't tried any. Double clubcard points too.

Cue 1st post about dodgy drives and firmware updates!


I got one of these a month ago and it came with a Seagate drive sporting CC1H firmware rather than the discredited SD15 firmware. In total I've got about 10 Seagate hard drives and they've all been trouble-free (touch wood) whereas Maxtor, IBM, Western Digital have all let me down. Maybe Seagate is my 'lucky' drive because I'm quite sure that every brand will let someone down sometime but Seagate was the only one offering a 5 year guarantee ... which Iomega don't of course.

When I bought this drive there was a £6 voucher and I've been waiting for another code to appear before I buy a second one but I don't think there is one at the moment? It's still a good deal though.

Sorry it was sarky comment aimed at the knockers as I totally agree with you.
I bought 1 months back as well and have nothing but praise for it but I wasnt effected with the "bad" firmware and think for the money its outstanding

Great deal but will hold out until I can use a Tesco Direct £6 off £50 voucher or the price of this unit falls to £60.
#12
Just incase anyone was wondering they are also being sold for about this price INSTORE too, £69.99. Seems like a decent deal to me.
#13
Not a hot price - but it seems a decent piece of kit.:)

Cracking drive grab it while you canhttp://is.gd/hN7R

I have just received mine by reserve and collect, as I have no transport free delivery options on amazon for a little more is something I will consider next time. So far operation of device is quiet and loading library of films onto the HD is ok speed ...until USB 3 becomes mainstream soon.

This device is exactly the capacity you need to backup your library of high definition films, any less they fill up very quickly.

The device is slightly slimmer than the picture shows.

The time is right for the site owners to generously reward kind chaps who post hot deals here.

Not a hot price...


I take that back - I hadn't realised 1tb drives had generally gone up a little in price - so although this drive has been cheaper in the past it's still a hot price :thumbsup:
#21
1st one that hits £60 (As long as it's decent) i'll buy lol

Its a good deal and an excellent drive, but you do need to check the firmware and update if required.
#23
Picked mine up from Tesco in Cardiff.
Looks better in the flesh than the picture. Slim and cool.

This one has the Hitachi drive inside so no problems with the Seagate firmware.
I don't have a problem with Hitachi but i know some people don't rate them. Will have to wait and see.

Already NTFS format so just plug in and away you go.
All the other drives i was interested in are over £80 so this is a great price.

what did it die of? what happened?

do you know what firmware it had?
#26
I'll be honest, i did'nt bother checking. What was the issue with the drives with dodgey firmware then?

Turned the drive on and it didn't spin up properly, very low RPM.
Worth noting, it took 4 (read F-O-U-R) phonecalls to Tescos to sort this out.

One hung up on me.
Second tried to transfer me to the manufacturer
Third fobbed me off saying that it would not be covered.
Fourth phone call, all done and dusted within 5 minutes.

Though to send me a replacement they have to charge you for a new one and P+P, then refund you.
#27
If anyone is interested I have just bought one - manufacture date MAR 2009 - and it is a Hitachi drive (Deskstar 7K1000.B ) rather than the Seagate. It effectively means the caddy costs £10 as the HD costs around £58 as a bare drive - which I think is pretty good.

yes you can, I have mine connected to it, and with one of the newer firmwares it will spindown the hard drive when you press the off button on the remote....

Mine is a March 2009 manufactured one which has a seagate inside it but with the latest firmware update...
#29
Well I bit the bullet for another £30 and bought a Maxtor Basics for 1.5TB

Play and Ebuyer....

Not here yet tho....

Those who bought the Iomega drive would you recommend it? I have one but only used it four times. Am happy with it but then again i am a very low user if you know what i mean. Any verdicts from those who use it frequently? Nephew is looking for a 1Tb external drive
#31
Anyone know where the cheapest place is at the mo to get this hard drive?
