Just bought one of these and thought it was a deal worth posting.

The drive is currently reduced to £49.99 with a free 2Gb USB pen drive, and spend an extra penny (I bought an item at £1) to get 2 £5 vouchers to spend in Oct and Nov.

dont know the cache of this drive but ebuyer doing a 16mb cache seagate 500gig for about £54.
Granted you can now buy 1tb drives for a little more but if you look at the effective price, assuming you want something from Argos anyway due to vouchers, then its a good price.

Voted hot as I think its a good deal.

hmm shame i would of got one.

And me.

Surely a hot deal is a hot deal?
#11
I've seen deal of the day posted here or at least commented on. Should be allowed anyway.

However, you have to think of the bigger picture. If you were considering buying something from Argos and getting one of these vouchers, you could buy that item and now get your HD for 44.99 or 39.99 net, effectively finding a use for your voucher.

I've been wanting a 500gig replacement hard drive for my ps3, cost about 60 quid.

Should I do that or go for the 1tb Seagate mentioned above as an external drive?
#17
amazon are doing the 1tb version for £64 at the following link http://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-Expansions-External-Desktop-Drive/dp/B00238KZPM not bad price for a 500gb but for the extra 14 i would go for amazons heat added though

Depends on what you want to use it for....

If you have a large internal drive (500gb) there is no filesize limit which is a bonus, whereas for the external drive you are limited to FAT32, therefore 4gb max filesize - if you are watching ripped blu-ray movies (e.g. MKV files) you'll need to split them into 4gb chunks.

If you have playTV you won't be able to record to the external drive, so it really does depend on what you want to use the drive for.

If space is the issue - I'd go for the external.

If the drive comes formatted as FAT32, simply re-format to NTFS before using and that 4gb file size limit does not apply. No need to split MKV files.
#23
Might be worth having this to use as a FAT32 external drive (for those players like the Xenta dvdusb player on ebuyer deal of the day a week or so ago, that doesn't accept NTFS)... rather than as a final resting place for storage, a temporary one just for such files (under 4gb of course, such as avi files).

A PS3 cannot read an NTFS USB drive - hence the need for FAT32 :whistling:

PlayTV library can be exported to PS3XMB-Video and copy to any USB media, but you will lose the subs, this info might be useful for someone :-D
Or, a nas/old pc with media server activated is another possible solution
