Poor price for a 3.5 drive & enclosure. Thought this was gonna be a 2.5 at this price!



Me too, was thinking I was going to have to educate the cold voters as the cheapest I have seen a 2.5" 320gb is 49.99 at play without an enclosure. But I will join their ever swelling ranks on this one.

Brrrrrr

Doesn't compare very well to the 1TB version at Comet for £63

Rather a poor discount for a 'Wipeout' as well LOL.

I think these will remain in stock allllll day!

Well no it wouldn't, except there is no sign of a 1Tb one at Comet for £63! That's long gone :-(
Cheapest currently is £75 quid

Check in store. You might be pleasantly suprised. There were some in my local one at the weekend.

How much is delivery?

These drives are £52.89 at Scan, with free delivery if you can get it.

And if not, I have wasted about 4 or 5 quid getting there! That's the whole benefit of "collect from store" it saves the disappointment & the journey unless it is there for you :-(

[Actually there have been a lot of "deals" lately... they are in or or two stores and they reach incandescent heat, yet are hard to find or non-existent :-( ]

I have no idea why anyone would bother in any case free delivery or not!... this is dear for a small amount of storage... 500Gb 3.5" desktop USB drives are EVERYWHERE for less than the delivered price of this smaller drive!

eg. Comet - 2 to choose from!
1Tb drives are around for not that much more.. eg about 68 quid @Tesco - 3x the storage!

However Comet are even worse than DSG for putting your reservation to one side - it will either still be on the shelf or the staff will have spotted the bargain when you reserved it and it will have mysteriously been purchased....


Also, I wasn't suggesting buying the 320GB drive from scan - I was merely pointing out that this deal isn't a deal anyway. It's the current price.

I've got a £63 1TB MyBook from Comet and a 1TB MyBook World Edition (£83) so have plenty of storage for this year!

Oddly enough, not had the problem, although with all the problems I have had with Comet starting with big hassles from the very first purchase of a hifi(!) cassette deck I made from them back in 1973, I tend to avoid them as much as DSG companies - ie. only use them when really stuck, or the item is amazingly cheap.

I have just bought a 250Gb 2.5" drive from Tesco at £37.12 inc. Quidco for portability, but my desktop USB drive is beginning to become "sticky" and really hard to get to initialise at the beginning of the day (it is a PATA disk, so I can't even check if it is the drive or the housing that is acting up by putting it in my PC without buying an adapter!), so I am not relying on it, and the small 2.5" drive is PACKED with the more important backup data at the moment, so need something a bit more spacious for normal desktop backups.
I was under the impression that the one in the Tesco deal (the disk inside, not the box) has reliability problems. so was holding off that one for now!
