look who i replied to

your drive is ok - if you dont need much space then cheapest is best even if not best price per gig
but no point to the size if its same money as bigger

Bit small 120g but if it all you need good deal hot for me.......Nice post though op & very good info

You always need more space, if you NEED 120GB you'll definitely NEED more, guarantee it....

Can't see why this is a good deal considering the bigger drives/prices out there...

Not that good value for money to be honest. Also, it's cheaper on eBuyer - ebuyer.com/pro…433 with some free security software apparently (admittedly you're less likely to walk into eBuyer than into a Maplin though they're pretty thin on the ground too)

Ebuyer charge you for delivery so its more expensive unless you spend over £50 for free delivery

hot? cant see why...

Yes. Hence my saying it's cheaper if you walk in and pick it up from them (as Maplin also charge for delivery).

Personally, I usually pay more than £50 as I'll order a bunch o' stuff at the time.

120Gb external, though... What is this - 2001?

Agree with posters above - too expensive. Like usual for Maplins, just sell expensive crap.

Pay an extra £17 and 4x the capacity! Or and extra £10 and double/triple it.

Don't understand how this got hot in the first place. Cold.

Practically all 2.5" BUS powered external hard drives are going to be very reliable due to the fact they use laptop hdd's, these are designed to be able to handle higher levels of shock and movement when off or on.

TBH if your in the market for an ultra compact 2.5" hdd then you might as well put your own together, yeah it will probably cost you a couple of quid more but the benefits seriously offset this small price increase. The biggest ones being the fact that the hdd will have a 5 year warranty and will be the MUCH faster and better 7200RPM drive (most of these pre-built ones use slower 5400 2.5" drives)
I recommend WD Scorpio Black 7200RPM 2.5" drive (a few quid more but is extremely well made and fast)
Then just grab yourself one of the ultra slim/compact cases off ebay, I have 4 external hdd's using the following case and had no problems what-so-ever and the oldest one has got to be getting on for like 6 odd years now!!! Not bad for £2.69 delivered :-)

Or if you want to future proof it then pay £5-£6 extra and grab a USB 3 case from ebay instead!

Surely you need what you need. I just bought an 80gb version to back up all our digital photos every so often. It used 37gb of space to do this. That's all I wanted it for. It gets really annoying when people post these smaller external hdd and all you get is people saying you can get 500gb for this price or 1tb for this price. If you want a small drive like I did then these are a great price. I couldn't care less if for £35 I could have 500gb. I would throw away an extra £15 for space I didn't want or need - wheres the hot deal in that?

Exactly. This is a good deal for a drive that i can use for backing up my photo's. I'd be wasting money getting a bigger one!

If you guys above wanted to save money and space backing up your photos etc. I would recommend getting these:

play.com/PC/…tml?_$ja=tsid:11518|cat:13453270|prd:13453270

Theres 100 in a box, and each disk holds 4.7GB of data.
Thats almost 470GB of storage for 13 quid

Guarantee you'll fill it soon enough and then be on the look-out for a bigger drive

Is that not 82p each? That's what it says.
Also I noticed this 'Credit account customers are charged a minimum of £12 (excluding VAT) delivery charge per order'

You are right mate, Google shopping mislead me as I only did a quick search for cheap blank dvds and just copied the cheapest link lol (feel silly, eh?).

I have updated my post with a similar deal, but for 100 disks instead of 10
That still works out cheaper than any other methods.

OR, if any of you guys have a blu ray burner (rather expensive) I recommend buying some blank Blu Ray disks as they hold from 25 to 50GB of data !

Have you used any of the ZIFF caddys by any chance? Considering getting one to house a ZIFF drive which is about to be replaced by an SDD. Seems like its worth it for a couple of quid, rather then leaving the drive gathering dust.

Cold, cold, cold. Why on earth are people voting this hot?? at this price its 20p /GB. 120GB will be filled so quickly these days, nobody wants them. You can buy a 500GB for around £40 including delivery (8.6p /GB) and thats at pretty much standard price without any deals.
