The .97 suggests a clearance price, thus will be localised stock - reasonable price for those that can get one, though.

Providing the product SKU might help others find stock in local branches? :)
#2
I can see this getting hot if more info is provided.
#3
where's your local currys?
#4
Do you have the SKU's from the receipt ?
#5
I was in a Currys Digital store earlier and the cheapest 1TB was a Hitachi for £65.
Good for anyone who can get this deal though.

I've been wanting to get a 1TB for the last couple of weeks, best I've seen was Tesco's £55 HDD but I didn't trust the discount code
#6
sku code is 0000626072 and was in the erdington, birmingham store
#7
I did manage to pick up some TDK DVD+Rs "priced to clear", £2.97 for 25, so I got 3 packs.

Unfortunately, any product ending in 97p in Currys or PC World is very hit and miss, as they are all discontinued lines. The chances of finding the same product in more than a few stores is quite slim. Best to post the location it was found and then people in that area can get it, but 97p products are not much good as a nationwide deal.
#9
Dosent matter its still worth posting just in case others strike lucky.

It does not have to be a nationwide deal to be posted on here IMO
#10
damn! i paid £42.97 for the 500gb a couple of weeks back :x
#11
awsum! I needed some backup storage, currently both PC's arent backed up atm :S Will pop down there tomorrow
#12
awesome price, not to be picky but any specs on the rpm of the drive and whether usb powered or mains?
#13
No 1TB external is USB-powered.
#14
can live in hope
still H&R added

#16
ard to find store specific or limited numbers but a great price
#17
Bought one of these from Curry's just after Christmas when I spotted a deal on this website and it stopped working a couple of weeks ago. Not impressed.
#18
Sorry forgot to mention above that it was the 500gb that I bought.
#19
Cool - hope to find one now.
#20
I saw today one in Coventry Holyhead Road, hurry up!!
#21
false economy, you will be lucky to get a year out of this drive... i got 3 months out of mine. there are loads of posts on forums from people reporting drive failures and numerous other problems. its worth paying more to avoid this extremely cheap and nasty brand.

Didn't trust the discount code? huhn? I don't get it. This is not a KGB mission or something. You simply type in the code and it either works or it doesn't. I just bought one (the Hitachi 1TB of Tesco) and it all worked fine.

So you took it back and got a refund right? Iomega don't make the HDD's that go in these. They must sell tens of thousands of these things and OK yours failed after a few months. You were just unlucky I reckon, unless you can prove otherwise.

Also, How many people post comments on how good things are, you probably only hear of the few % of failures.

It never ceases to amaze me that whatever the offer on Hard disks you will always, always always get someone saying:-

"I had a Samsung, Hitachi, Maxtor, Seagate, IBM, Western Digital etc etc ... I'll Never have another one of them EVER, lost all my data...".

I guess HDD's are no different than cars. You have a bad Ford, Renault, Vauxhall etc and you may never buy that brand again because you perceive that they are all rubbish. Whereas other people may drive round the clock without so much as a bulb failing.

Could I just also respectfully remind everyone please that these things are very delicate devices and need treating with a little care. Try not to move them when spinning, or subject them to vibration etc. Oh yeah, also they are mechanical and one day will inevitably fail.

Until that is we move to solid state disks.
#24
Just to back that up (Pun intended) Brought one of these from Curry's about a year ago, always using it and no problems....touch wood!!

Brought for around £60 and very happy with it :)
#25
been using one for 3 months now - took it out of the caddy and put it in my computer - working great so far!

you should have... ;) I've got mine for £54.97 with TDX-GD55 code:-D

As I would imagine most people will simply be removing the drive from the caddy & mounting it internally, could someone give more info. on the spec. of the drive inside?
Presumably it's SATA? but is it SATA (1.5gb/s), or SATA II (3.0gb/s)?
Presumably it's 7200rpm? but how much cache has it got?

Also, what's the going rate for a 1TB 7200rpm SATA2 drive at the mo.? £60-70?
#28
None in London.

answers some of your questions

Ta, so it's a 7200rpm, Sata II, 32mb cache, Samsung Spinpoint F1. Model HD103UJ, which has a 3 year manufacturers warranty from Samsung. (though oddly that review states it has only 8mb cache, which is at odds with the spec. of the HD103UJ)

Still, it's a good quality 1TB drive £20 less than anywhere else, plus you get a free caddy & 1.5A power brick thrown in!
Hot!

I stand corrected then! Still, pretty expensive, but i guess the way storage prices are dropping, i'm sure it won't take that long to be under 100.

No warranty from Sasmsung on OEM drives, the warranty is with Iomega, but is voided if you open this.

Does anyone know if 'opening' this just involves a few screws if you catch my drift?
#38
Called in at my local store showing stock 1TB unit at 09:15 for the whole of UK including NI was 7 one of which was a returned unit at Gateshead nothing within striking distance for me!!!

I have done this, and it was very easy to do, on my one there was no seal, and if you had a problem just pop it back into the caddy and return :thumbsup:

None in stock in Reading and nearby stores.
