Direct link please, I can't seem to find it for that price.

This has to be the cheapest BIG external USB HDD yet! Bargain.

But.... does anyone know how good WD external HDDs are? Was personally holding out for a Buffalo, which seems widely liked. Shame it's only USB 2.0.

Anyway, have some heat - if the deal is real(!) Haven't seen >1G for around £50 before!

I presume as you've added some heat, you've actually seen it for this price.
In which case, please post the link.

Otherwise, why did you vote hot?
That's one thing about this site I don't like, the tendencey for people to vote without even knowing if a deal is legit or not.

Also, there have been a few deals for exteral HDD's for less than £50 per TB, like this one -
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/1tb-seagate-free-agent-external-usb2-fa7200-1-7200rpm-32mb-cache-scan-41-99-deli/874527

You just have to look out for them before they disappear.

The description states "USB powered", which I suspect is not correct.

Yes it is frustrating when the sheeple vote on the headline post, rather than the fine detail (including whether the deal is actually real), but that's just theharsh reality of trying to sift through several hundred deals a day. I had assumed that the "Report/Spam" button was for removing deals that had been identified as bogus?

Okay let's try this link

Because initially they weren't in stock - so expired, and now 1-2 months delivery - so expired.
They were NEVER available at any time, try looking in the future, and while you're at it, make your your link actually works when you post a deal...

Because the idea is, people post deals here so everyone else doesn't have to go looking for it.
Even if it was in stock, if the OP doesn't care whether their deal is posted correctly, I'm going to post cold.

2Tb drive are available for about £15 more which works out better per Mb. Obviously this is okay if you only have £51.99 to spend but personally I'd get a 2Tb.

Says dispatched within 1-2 months oO

yup, probably a better deal will come along in the time it takes delivery of this item...

Nothing to do with the deal but in reality you need a back up of anything you store on these. Dropped my wd passport the other day all of 6 inches and now its goosed. Years of uni work, thousands of photos, hundreds of albums gone. Debating whether to pay the grand necessary for recovery
#23
hugh3sy7. Does the drive still physically work ? if so have you tried partition doctor or similar program yourself ?. I had a WD 500gb full of photo's which went kaput and recovered ALL of the data

If you're using a Mac then try Data Rescue III which I've always found recovers a lot of data
#25
The hd spins up, makes a buzzing noise then spins down, then repeats 4 times. Thing is it isn't recognized at all in my computer
#26
Hugh3sy7 .... might be a stupid question but how many times have you tried powering it up? I dropped an HD alot further - had the same problem BUT the 20th time I tried it came back for a while. Kept just switching it on and off, transfered a little off each time and eventually got back all the stuff I wanted, Its still going though now Im just curious to see if itll ever die.
#27
The boot sector may be damaged which is why it isn't recognised. The programs can be used to repair the boot sector on the disc first (it's what I had to do )
#28
Good deal, just ordered one, thanks ops

Anyone saving important data on a single drive is an idiot.
Blunt, but true.

Kinda harsh but you do have a point. Hard drives are not, as the previous user found out to his peril, indestructible and it's not usually a case that people think about these things until something disastrous has happened. With the price of external storage devices being so low it's well worth people buying two drives and mirror your backup.
