Iomega 34959 portable hard drive, 500gb.

Reduced to £41.99 on the website, this can be reduced further using 10% code "10CEA" bringing the price down to £37.79.

Likely £1.13 Quidco cashback available too, if you remember to go through them.
Personally I forgot...

Credit to MillarCat for posting the 10CEA code, which applies to all data storage and more. Code looks to be valid until 31 Jan.

Spelling it out for anyone confused:

If you stroll into the shop without ordering online it'll be more expensive.

If you order online for home delivery it's free if you're in no rush (and rather pricey if you want it sooner than six days or so).

This is a portable two and a half inch drive - not to be confused with a desktop three and a half inch drive, and as such will be USB powered (not mains powered).

very hot
Hot I got mine last week for £45
Should of waited
voted hot!
can this be used in a ps3?
3% Quidco aswell, include collection from store !
good price
good price, but im still waiting for the 1tb ones to drop before i get another one, my 120gb will do til then lol
I'd love to know if these Iomega's can be disassembled to use the drive as an internal, cause this price beats all internals that I can find.

Can't find any info on disassembly of this model though :-(
The price is right......I've reserved two.....Quidco has tracked at £2 27 (for two).

Thanks to O P.
Have just picked mine up. I note the usb cable isn't very long (particularly the length between the data plug and the power one).
Should be fine in a pc/laptop, but if you're planning on plugging it into something that has only one usb port (dvd player for instance) you'll likely need an extension or a different cable...

I'd pay the extra for USB 3.0 or you will be kicking yourself down the line.
Good find. NIce and toasty.

1 reserved for collection via Quidco link.

In stock in Trowbridge branch if you are in this neck of the woods.
Thanks, just reserved one.
Get this drive rather than the USB 3.0 one if you want to connect it to a Wii according to the compatibility list.
hot deal! ordered, thanks!
thanks hot
What can you do with a Wii?
Cheers did you get yours from Teesside Park? If so do you know if they had many left.

Play games? Not sure exactly what you're asking.

If you mean what can you do with an external drive and a Wii, that's not for me to say! ;-)

Dunno if its my connection but explorer keeps crashing when trying to check out....
Great price,just reserved one at merry hell will pop down and grab it later on
Cheers to OP and MillarCat for there post and code :)
Do any not have these 'double' wires? No good for my MacBook air!
I use this to keep backup of all my photos, if you want to use this with the PS3 then format it using the IOMEGA FAT32 program. It can be downloaded off the following link:

Just picked mine up from the Hamilton branch, they had another 6 on the shelf.

this drive can make babies with the wii :{

I cant know for sure but it looks exactly like the Iomega 320gig I bought last year - which is now in my PS3 with the original 80 gig in th ecase.
It was posted on here also comet about Dec09 if you want to search but some helpful chap posted detailed instructions.....something like remove the feet fronty 2 only i think , take out 2 screws, then prise the lid off and dicsconect - standard fit 2.5" drive.
Good luck!

The underside of the unit has rubber runners front & back rather than four corner feet. I'm not going to try opening it, though, so can't help beyond that :P

I also see it has one very small LED - which suits me down the the ground - the big flashing panel on my last one was irritating (until i put some tape over it!)

Thanks Late & mgk - that's enough info for me. I'll give it a go anyway as I'm intending it either for PS3 or laptop. I reserved earlier so will post results later! I saw on another review that someone had used it for internal drive but had no info on which model he used.

Just picked a couple up at my local. One is for a neighbours Wii and the other is going in my JTAG Xbox.

Taken one to pieces and they're Samsung HM500JI drives. There's nothing under the rubber strips, you have to simply prise/click open with a screwdriver. Easy enough to clip back together to reuse the case.

Bare drives are sold on Amazon and are PS3 compatible.

Full spec on Samsungs web site

Thanks W1zz that is exactly what I needed to know. That'll be the PS3 done but wondering whether to get another for my JTAG
Thanks, voted Hot. I just picked one up from Comet, for those that are interested, Device Manager reports mine as a Samsung HM500JI as well...
I got one about three weeks ago at £41.99. And very satistfied with it. Good find for £38. Heat added.
