At the local tip, £0, lol.

Maxtor 160gb SATAII 7200rpm 8mb cache £29.92 delivered http://www.ebuyer.com/product/159613 Wouldn't touch a "refurbished" hard disk as hard disks can't be refurbished (not at a cost that would make it worthwhile for bigpockets to sell them at this price anyway). They are basically second hand that have had the dust wiped off and been formatted. If you care about not having it die soon and taking your data with it you'll buy new.

I remember linking about 14 of these a few years ago and they were very expensive then and I was the envy of all my friends. Now they are in the cellar somewhere amongst the dust being created in to antiques for my great grandchildren, lol.

Not a question of getting it cheaper.

This is really end of the line, very old hd's which have hardly any life in them. They're also incredibly slow compared to the latest harddisks.

Lets do a GB/£ comparison.

1tb (1000GB) for around £60
20gb for £9 (lets ignore del ;)).

1000/60 = 16.6gb/£
20/9 = 2.2gb/£

So basically the hardidsk BP are selling is roughly 8 times the price of a modern, ultrafast, still in warranty harddisk.

My company were chucking giving these away for free btw, years back.

I have one of these that started getting bad sectors a while back somewhere. Will have to find it and drill some holes in it so the identity thiefs don't get excited.
#9
Second hand??? Formatted???

You wouldn't want to be getting one of Gary Glitter's

You'll be posting deals for used condoms next, this is about as useful.
#11
The bottom of the barrel has finally been reached.

If they can sell these, then selling used toilet paper has to be next! Selling sand to Arabs must be a doddle by comparison :-(

not very subtle, but a suitable comparison considering the exceptionally limited application for such a low-spec old-hat item (sic).

..almost tempted to get one to see what data I can recover..:-)..Just think how much that could be worth to a tabloid if its interesting data!!!

It's getting cold in here, so take off all your clothes.

They probably "securely removed all the data" with a format c: /q command! Just hope it's not Gary Glitter's old hard drive :-D
#15
Useful find, but the wrong site to post it on.
#16
OP states 90 days warranty, yet product webpage indicates one year.
suspect it would not be worth the return postage (nor the initial delivery p&p).

Click the description tab. Says two different things on the same site. I suspect the 90 days is the accurate one.

Guys - why are you even looking at warrantees???????????????

buy it then steal all the credit card and bank details off it. yeah have -8 degrees frome too.
#20
awful:p

So are Bigpockets - utter cra*p
#21
for £14.18 delivered its poor value,

Cold sorry.
#22
Not voting either way as technically this is the cheapest for the item but I wouldn't buy it. Firstly It may only be £8.99 but the cost per MB is enormous compared to any other HDD. Secondly as someone's already pointed out you can't refurbish a HDD, that means you're getting a 2nd hand drive which is likely pretty old since I've not seen a 20 GB drive in years.

Very cheap but not a great deal in my opinion.

A double whisky isnt exactly double the price of a single whisky! Buying more is always cheaper relatively speaking, you wouldnt buy a 1tb drive if you wanted a 20gb one same as you wouldnt buy a double whisky if you wanted a single one...unless you are Gazza!

Silly comparison im afraid.

If I wanted on at cheapest price (rather than best value which is another matter entirely) I would probably get something like a 160Gb drive for 25 or 26 quid, wouldn't be worth paying delivery on something that cheap, so I would just go local to me, in my case probably crappy Eclipse computers or Ballicom:
http://www.eclipsecomputers.com/productlist.aspx?type=2&id=65
http://www.ballicom.co.uk/index.php?cPath=833_835&page=1&sort=3a

Of cours if it HAD to be IDE, for old gear,as this one is, maybe a quid or two more eg. http://www.eclipsecomputers.com/productlist.aspx?type=2&id=13

Proves just how cheap new ones are!

However, that apart, it is pretty irrelevant - after all, what's that got to do with ANY argument about whether something is worth buying or not?

A bit like "What's the cheapest car you can buy?"
The answer to that could be 50 quid, and it would be full of rust, unroadworthy, a death trap and just worth the scrap value. Would you buy that if you wanted to get to work every day, starting tomorrow?

Yeah, ok ... around £25 is the answer - thanks
