Sorry £70 for a branded external 1GB doesn't seem bargain basement to me and certainly not a genuine 49% off.

Are you nuts, this is the USB one, it does not need a power supply, It was only a few months ago the 500gig was this price.

Remember this: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/western-digital-elements-se-portable-hard-drive-1tb-usb-2-0-69-99-amazon/874329

This is hot as the 500gig was @£50

Just double checked and while it may not be a 'genuine' 49% off 129.99 does seem to be the RRP, also with some looking around the cheapest I've been able to find is from Pixmania at £64.99 however you need to slap on the £4.50 postage on that, so all in all you'd save 48p from getting it there over Amazon, personally I'll take the 48p hit for the customer service

Maybe we need a rule that the first poster has to at least follow the deal link before posting ;)

Why are people arguing, both are USB powered -_-

'The Biker''s deal is better.

actually they aren't or at least the two that were being discussed aren't, basically the one i posed is a portable drive (powered via USB and lightweight) while the one the biker posted is a desktop (powered from mains and just over 5 times the weight and I believe larger) so the comparisons the biker has made are a little redundant (comparing apples and oranges springs to mind) also if you check out pixmania they're selling the exact drive the biker is quoting for £44.99

regardless of all the bickering after an hour of looking around i've yet to see a PORTABLE (powered by USB) drive of this size for a better price

although i am sorely tempted by the one Georget posted

does this have a mini (small) or micro (really small) USB connector ?
#23
Heat. Nice deal for a portable [USB powered] hard drive.

If you need a portable drive to just plug in your laptop / PC and go, then this is a good deal. If the drive is to stay static on a desktop with little or no transportation, then there are better prices.

I understand the concept that the OP is advertising and therefore makes this a good price.

whats the difference between elements and passport 1 TB ones?

I *think* that Passport refers to the portable ones [i stand corrected if wrong]

from a quick look design and the passport one ships with a bunch of software.

*Edit* ok so i was curious myself and had a look, from what i can see the elements drives are your standard package with external / portable drives while the passport drives are essentially a piece of hardware to install with their own firmware, drives and software to perform backups, also should be noted that a common complaint with the passport drives is poorly fitting USB ports causing a very easy mid-transfer disconnect if it gets knocked

also the elements drive will plug and play on PC and Macs while the passport will only work on windows

After 2 minutes of looking I found 2 at Scan under £68 and a USB3 drive for just under £78.
£70 seems an okay price but nothing special and only a 2 year warranty which is not great; same as the Scan drives.

do you mean the Intenso and Verbatim drives? if so you forgot to add the postage which takes them to £72 (i did look there) although i did miss the USB3 drive so thanks for pointing that one out

nice, very nice

So what is best to plug into a Samsung TV for playing movies that doesn't fry my telly? I assume the USB powered one requires more legwork from the tv?

I didn't forget as it is now very easy to sign up for free postage with Scan as has been discussed many times on this site.

HAHAHA THIS ONE DOESN'T COME WITH AN AC ADAPTER COLD COLD COLD

I kid. But it's funny how the argument turned out. Kidding aside, have some heat from me.

OR MAYBE NOT NO AC ADAPTER COLD COLD COLD LOL

But seriously, I mean, this is a good deal.

TheBiker, the one you found, whilst its a good price and I have three of those 1TB drives, its a 3.5" drive not a 2.5" drive. The 2.5" drives are smaller and more expensive.

As for the deal, 500GB 2.5" drives are usually around the 50 quid mark, so nice price.

Bought this drive from Amazon a few months ago for this price. TBH, £70 for 2.5" 1TB hard drives has become the going rate and there've been loads of deals for similar ones. WD is a good make and this particular hard drive is surprisingly small (if a bit heavy) so I'd rate this as the one to go for still.
