Thanks for posting. It is good practice to also add the merchant and price to the title. It helps people who are just browsing through. And in my experience your post will get a few more “hot” votes.

They are well worth taking a look at.
Kind regards Andy
no worries, will do so next time !
I was one of the lucky ones and bought 2 for £19.99 each at TESCO about 6 months ago... granted, I haven't seen them at anything like that price since, but £50 sounds not that cheap.
few threads on here have slated maxtor drives anyone heard of any bad things about these i wouldnt want to lose all my data :S

also i currently have a 250gb and need more so hence why i am looking would i be better paying the extra £20 and getting a 1TB?
I've had the Maxtor Basic 500 in use on a daily basis for the last three years. No problems so far. You should not rely on any HD for backup. It's better to back up onto verified DVDs (and if your data is very important, make at least two copies)..
