£69.99 for 2TB HDD is not a bargain, it is a decent price.
The price / TB for portable HDD has reached as low as £25-£30/TB, so the bargain should be around £50 or maximum £60.
Look at here for instance. Approximately the same price.

Good price if you need it now. But you could play a waiting game, high probability you will get it cheaper ...

I'd second this. I've had a similar 2TB portable from Amazon for £45 earlier this year. Admittedly storage prices seem to be forever rising these days, which I find really annoying as storage demands by comparison only increase so people are getting fleeced buying drives at the current high prices.

Yep for a lightening deal this should be in the £50-£60 range, £70 is nowt special for 2TB.....

can't compare a western digital to Seagate surely?

Agreed. I've been looking for prices to drop on 2TB drives, and this seems to be the standard price at the moment.

Seagate fail rate is 3 times higher than WD, I don't think WD has been lower.

It was the exact same drive as this one.

Nope. That link actually says the opposite of your post. Which is, within their experience, overall WD is worse than Seagate though they mention a specific older Seagate drive from 2013 that was particularly bad.
and none of the Seagate Drives in that survey were 2TB versions ie as in the OP. Failure rates for particular models/same manufacturer can vary considerably. In that link. one Seagate 4TB is poor but the other Seagates fare better than WD and some Toshiba.
In other words sweeping statements that certain manufacturers have a high failure rate do not stand up to scrutiny.
Certain drives from all manufacturers may have a higher failure rate.
