Cor Scorchin deal lol

1TB for 60-70:whistling:

You obviously meant well mate. But seriously, this isn't a good deal. There was (now expired) a Western Digital External drive on offer at Misco for £65, posted on here just yesterday!

The average price for most 1TB drives is still less than the price of this measly 320GB drive.

Seems like a decent price for 320Gb NAS

Aren't you talking about a USB drive?... this is NAS!
#10
For those concerned about performance on NAS drives, check out this site.

For NAS drive, get a 1000 ethernet connection, it does make a small difference in transfers.
#11
Banjo and rufus obviously either don't read or don't know what they are talking about. Haven't researched prices but am giving heat to counter the negative feedback of a couple of... well, insert your own opinion here!

As it happens this is astronomically expensive for the drive it is....

See:

#13
Not a bad price plus quidco and 5% RAC or Varsity. Quidco should be 0.5% but it sometimes tracks wrong I've had 6% when it should have been 0.5%.

I think some people may have missed the network bit when they read it!

Wow that must have dropped in the last few days because I was after one and checked Comet, ah well looks like an RMA and trip to comet now!
#15
£80 for a 500GB NAs drive does seem very good; there are a few 1TB drives for £120-130 that look even better value for those that need a bit more storage.

The networking hardware in these cost a lot more than a USB connection so it makes sense to but the largest drive you actually need.
#16
Sorry, but the Iomega 320GB NAS is £68 in both my local Staples and PC World in Poole. Admittedly the Staples prices shows as an offer reduced from £99 but the PC World price looks standard.

Described as 360GB. Presumably £62-99 is the collect in store price.

The voice of reason :thumbsup:

monkeydo should vote on the deal, not to try and prove himself correct, which he obviously isn't.

Or, here's a thing, when voting something cold on the basis of price, you could provide a link to the cheaper option (like Nihcaj or Kuma)
#21
Or I coud just base my vote on common sense and a general average price observed from browsing similar items on the net, in shops etc, which is probably how most judgements are made on here.

We don't always remember where we've seen similar items at a better price. It was fairly obvious with this though. -52 kinda proves that!

Your initial comparisons were to a DAS, not a NAS! This shows how daft you are. I openly admitted I hadn't compared prices, just wanted to point out that you were comparing two different storage options with two different price brackets. Like comparing a push bicycle with a motorbike, they both get you from A to B but one has an engine!
#23
Pushbike & motorbike!? Don't exaggerate mate! Jesus! lol

I won't argue that I wrongly compared two drives that weren't 'quite' like-for-like. It's irrelivent now anyways. The deal has been voted icy cold.

Glad we've cleared that up now then, I was write all along! I never said the price was hot, just that people shouldn't compare it to a DAS and vote cold solely because of that comparison. A NAS can allow multiple users to use the drive at the same time; a DAS can't. A NAS can be used on several computers without un-plugging, moving and reconnecting; a DAS can't.

If you compare it with something like-for-like then that's fine. I just thought your initial comments were unfair to the OP.

Anyway, case closed. It was a pants deal! :thumbsup:
