Manufacturer's Description
Pack up your office files and take them home. Carry thousands of songs or pictures. These drives are simple to use, light and easy to carry, and require no power adapter - they are powered directly through the USB cable.
Installation is a snap because you don't really "install" this drive; you just plug it in and it's ready to use. There is no CD to install; the included software loads from the drive the first time you plug it in. Powered by the USB bus, so no separate power supply needed.

This ultra-portable drive fits easily in your pocket or purse, weighs only a few ounces and holds tons of valuable data.

This shows up as £129.99 BUT you can use their price promise to get amazon's price of £82.50 + another 10% off making it £74.25. Works only if amazon have it in stock but can be used upto 7 days after purchase. Online or local store pickup. Also 2.5 % quidco for online sales BUT delivery is £4.95 so best deal to pickup from local store.

SEE BELOW http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/editorial/price-match-promise

110% of the Difference

The difference is £47.50 so you get £4.75 off of Amazons price which is £77.75. Still a good price though.
#4
The deal should be posted as amazon but with reference to you being able to get it cheaper from pcworld... if we allow this then you can make any number of deals with 10% of the difference off!!

PS: As such, voted cold.

Will Pc world match the price of amazon, as i have never tried to price match a website with PC world before. I presume I just take the printout from amazon page and get them to see if they will match the price of the amazon site
#8
Superb drive, not really a deal. Just posting the amazon one would be.
#9
can you take this apart and use the 2.5 inch drive in say a PS3 ?
#10
Theoretically I suppose but why not just buy the bare drive given they're about 10% cheaper?

Just phoned up PC World. Told them the score, waited on hold and then eventually a guy came on and agreed their price would be £77.78 including delivery (I think his maths was a few pence out, but I wasn't going to complicate things). Did take a long time on the phone (17 minutes) but ordered one. Nice :-)

Did it take him that long to work out the difference?

I have just been down to PC World in High Street Kensington and asked them to price match a price found on Amazon.co.uk for 74.95 plus 4.50 postage. The lady at the till looked very confused. Went and spoke to her manager who struggled with thre maths and said sell it to him for 60.10GBP

Great bargain many thanks for this post.

Well he did do the maths rather slowly to be sure I was able to keep up....

PC world have access to the web from the tills, so they will be able to check online stock and price instantly

Phoned PC World this evening around 18:50 to get them to price match amazon and got put on hold so they could check the price, a few minutes later the guy comes back and says they cannot confirm it is the same item and they would have to phone me back within the hour to check that they are both the same models before they match the price.

Guess what no phone call back and then phoned them just after 8pm to hear the message that they are closed, well done PC World as useful as ever

Luckily I work not far from PC World and working late tomorrow night so will go instore and buy it and sort it that way as hopefully have more luck unless I get a member of staff that has no clue that they "price match"
#17
went to PC World after work and after getting them to price match I walked out with the hard drive for £66.19

Has anyone seen a carrycase or storage case for the hard drive anywhere, the only one I have seen is a capcase one from Amazon for £8.99
#18
Anyone see a good price match price for this, it seems to have gone up?

Just to share with you that my WD 250gb passport that I bought for £74.75 a couple of weeks ago died tonight after I had connected to my mate's Dell pentium 4 PC.

A windows usb power surge warning appeared then it packed in.

I have lost lots that is of importance to me.

It will be money back and no replacement on this occasion

Before setting off for PCW today I plugged it in and the blue light flashed

I then decided to change the cable to see if that would make a difference

It did. I used the cable for my fuji camera.

All is working well:thumbsup:
