I've always said its not the size that counts but how much you use it, but in case size is everything to you heres a 1 Terabyte external drive. OK, so it costs more than twice the price of two 500Gb versions, but if you really really must have this much space in one drive it appears to be an excellent price.

Dont forget to go through quidco for cashback....

If someone can find this very drive cheaper feel free to post it, as i kinda might buy one...

Looks a pretty good price. Quidco with play.com too ("2%").
Only concern would be that if this failed you would lose alot of data.

If you weren't bothered by space you could get 2 500GB for around £210

To extend on emasu's point, 2x500gb seperate would be far more safe and more redundant too.
If I read that description correctly it seems that WD 1TB solution has 2 drives in RAID0 hance the 1tb format. If one HDD fails you lose everything on both drives.


I suppose this is good if you need to travel with a huge amount of storage, otherwise I'd follow emasu's suggestion if they will stay at 1 location most of the time.

All VAT registered companies by law must issue their VAT number. Just ask them or select the option for a VAT receipt.

Play.com is Jersey based and so VAT free (to Jersey residents)

In addition their website states that

Your contract for purchases made through the Site is with Play.com, and you undertake that any and all goods ordered by you are for your own private and domestic use only.

Hence no VAT number is supplied nor does it have to be as they haven't charged VAT!

A little know fact about anything that you order from Play is that you could be subject to VAT and or any other customs and excise duty when the goods enter the UK and you the buyer is responsible.

Again all info is on their website and in the terms and conditions.

Exactly my thoughts. Also be aware some of the 500gb external drives actually use 2 x 250gb in the same way.

Well RAID 0 is better performance on reads but given it's an external drive.... that's prob not a priority anyway

i recently saw this advertised on this website through amazon for £122.50 delivered. i went on the amazon site and ordered one because i thought it was a complete bargain.within 5-10 mins it had dissappeared of this site.

i've now got an email from amazon saying the item was referenced wrong and i have been sent the wrong item etc they've deleted all traces of my order so i cant prove what i ordered and they've taken my money.does anyone know what i can do because surely if it was advertised at this price i should be able to get it?surely its not my fault they made a mistake?

if anyone has any ideas please let me know!

thanks

Welcome to HotUKDeals ben987654321 and Thanks for your post :)

Amazon don't take payment until an item is despatched?
#17
Are you sure it wasn't an Amazon MarketPlace seller?

hi yeah it was on amazon through a company called pixmania i think and yeah they've taken the money. i checked my bank i got an email from pixmania saying they have heard i wish to refuse delivery of this order. i then checked another email from amazon saying how the item was referenced wrong and sent the wrong item (which i believe is total rubbish because i think they realised there was a mistake and know how to get out of it) they have told parcel force or someone that i wish to refuse the order and said they would give me a full refund.

but of course i dont want this because its not my mistake so i shouldnt be punished surely? but on none of the emails they mention what i ordered i know i was not the only one to order this as it was on amazon for approximately 12 hours!

any idea what i can do as i would like the item!!

thanks

The problem is more to do with PixMania, Amazon won't deal with it. Try http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/contacts.html but you could end up on the phone for a while. They're based in France too.
