slow and needs to plugged in a socket. Why would anyone want this?
I’m in no particular hurry, and I fortunately own a socket.

Great find OP. Isn't it a bit deceitful that they never show the power cord attached or the connection terminals in the photos?

That's true. But in the 70's they would have had a semi naked woman in the pic too.X)

I'm pretty sure 5TB drives generally only came out about 6-9 months ago.
This post should get pretty hot. Amazon currently selling for £149.99

If you buy in store it is one of the credit card style with £10
Purchase between 17/12/14 - 21/12/14 for £10 credit
Spend £10 credit between 17/12/14 - 3/01/15

They have only been released to consumer retail channels very recently, up until now they have been hideously expensive drives for industry.

As they are so new they are hard to get hold of am but I'm sure there will soon be a lot of them around and some usb options too.

This is a great price for a huge amount of storage. I remember paying this much for a Lacie 250GB external hard drive back in the day. What a fool i was.

Have some heat (I remember paying more than this for an external FireWire 250GB drive!)
I know this is HotUKdeals - but I thought I'd mention that the Apollo missions data use could be measured in Kilobytes...
Seagates 8TB drive - not available to the consumer yet..(should that be the "prosumer"?)
WD have announced 10TB drives - release date 2017...
#29
can these be pulled apart and used for internal drives....albeit it with no warranty
#30
Thanks.
#31
Plug into the Xbox One USB port and that is going to give you some serious space. (and you will still have the internal drive space)

Be Aware - Dont Buy If you intend to Crack it open and use the drive in a PC

This drive has a cripped firmware, you cannot open the case up and take the drive out to use in a PC, the PC will not see the drive via SATA..

PITA as would be a nice cheap internal expansion

That is a lot of data to loose and knowing seagate drives prob just outside warranty

Would be ok set up in raid in a NAS drive though

Good deal... but if this baby goes down, that is a lot of data to lose!

Yes I was thinking this exact same thing - I am paranoid about redundancy(engineering definition) If I bought this I would then have to buy another to back it up!

5TB of lost data is roughly the equivalent of an olympic sized swimming pool full of tears.
