Is it possible to use this code if reserving for in-store collection? I can't see a code box anywhere...

Yes you can Degeneratemoo...

As soon as you select Collect from store it goes to your basket.
Immediately underneath the word Basket it says " If you have a promotion code please enter it here: "
Pop it in there :thumbsup:

Nice one! Just reserved one for pick up... Windows 7 arrived today (far earlier than I thought it would from PC World, originally they said 5-7 days AFTER release!) so want to use this for backing up whilst installing etc!
#8
Hot from me BTW...
Would've gone with the Tesco deal (for the Clubcard points) BUT my local Tesco stores don't fall into the free collect from store catchment.

Virtually the same price as a bare drive - so an enclosure free.
Not amazing but one of the best ATM.

Forgive me but does this have a plug or is it powered by USB?
1 Like #13
it'll be AC plug

AFAIK only the 2.5" drives can be powered by USB and the largest they go up to currently is 500gb

Double clubcard points :whistling:


That's if you have a Clubcard (like saying "potential Quidco" I guess!).

Not a fan of the Clubcard scheme. They could just make their prices that little bit cheaper... but no, that wouldn't trick the gullible people into always only going to Tesco so they can earn Clubcard points or allow them to collect marketing data about you ;-)

I have one though, no point in missing out on points if you're shopping there anyway! Just wish they'd use a more honest and straightforward, no-frills low pricing system like ASDA :thumbsup:

But that's waaay off the subject.

...don't buy this external hard drive...a lot of them have had problems with their power pack iirc...hence why its so cheap.
#21
Not bad, tempted to get one of these instead of another USB powered one, so much more storage for less money..
#22
agree with the power supply problem - I have seen many die. They come with different plugs, if it is a proprietary 5pin one then hands off - these are the affected ones (all but one I had died) and replacements are not available but from WD themselves.
Someone pointed out they are available on ebay but when I looked for a replacement I learned that the wiring may be different, so be cautious.

After my experience, I won't touch them with a barge pole. Check the reviews on Amazon and play.com

750GB now. :)
#24
5 pin plug? I've got four of these and none of them had a 5 pin power supply plug.

I would definitely buy these again too.

(I'd vote hot but they've been this price for months so it's not really a hot deal at all)

Western Digital do 1TB 2.5" SATA drive.

They're faster and cheaper (3.5"). You go for a 2.5" because you need to save weight and/or space and don't want to carry around a power supply but are prepared to pay the premium. It's pretty clear cut :)
#27
Will never buy another one of these drives again. Have bought two in the past, both have broke. Enclosure/power supply packed in.

Yup, looks like this: http://www.acoustica.org.uk/t/naim/psu%20pix/interconnect%20pix/psu%20din.jpg

We had ordered a bunch of these all came with a 5-pin DIN plug, all got very hot, all but one are gone.

I don't know about the new PSUs, but if it's DIN be careful, prone to go pop and hard to replace.

Yes, this is the one with stock expected early November. Almost three times the price of the desktop sized drive, though.
#30
Did anybody that has previously had problems with one of these drives manage to get a replacement/refund within the retailers/manufacturers warranty period ?
#31
I have no issues with this drive (I have a few) and I really do heavy writes. They run hot but I can liv e with that
#32
Only reason I wouldn't buy another one is there is no on/off switch. Can't fault it otherwise.
#33
Just to add to everyones doom and gloom on these elements devices, read some of the Amazon and Play feedback. I've got the 640gb version as a paper weight because i'm not rma'ing another unit for it to go belly up and lose my data all over again. 1st unit lasted 2 days and died, its replacement developed bad sectors and now the replacement for that one has also now developed bad sectors. I won't touch another one. Unlucky very possibly, do i want to be unlucky again, no.
#34
@ technojunkie, no probs here. In my case the pc supplier in question i deal with on an almost weekly basis (business account, i'm an IT manager, as well as buying personal stuff from them) so no issues returning it to them. That and i used to work for them so my rma's zip through the system no fuss :)

In their defense, I called WD support and they replaced it without any discussions, the replacement PSU arrived a few days later.

I bought this HDD ~2 weeks ago from Ebuyer for:
Shipping £0.00
Subtotal £56.47
VAT £8.48
Order Total £64.95

It's a good hdd, realtime external space works out to be 931GB.
Uses an A/C plug, blue light on back of hdd to show it's on/working. The hdd turns off automatically when the PC shuts down.

Read / Write speeds are good, I got continuous read/write speeds of over 20MB/s.
#37
I bought this from Comet a few days ago and it was delivered today!

The PSU it came with was NOT a 5-pin one. :)

i bought one recently from currys (instore) and it didnt have a 5 pin socket

After considering all the favourable (and unfavourable) comments about this drive I decided to buy one of these instead and save myself £15 :

http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/9752949/Seagate-Expansion-500GB-External-USB-Desktop-Hard-Drive/Product.html

I know its not 1TB but 500Gb is still more than I really need so it's perfect for me.
#40
FYI I bought the 640gb version from comet about a month ago and it did NOT have the 5pin plug.
All been fine so far, but I only rarely power it up to backup data
