Better to pay slightly more and get a hugely bigger drive IMHO. I paid … Better to pay slightly more and get a hugely bigger drive IMHO. I paid £39 delivered for my last 500GB 2.5" external, so @ £27 and just £12 less, the extra 380GB seems a remarkable deal!



wheres that from?

Hot from me. Free delivery if you combine with other items and spend over £50. £22.99 = bargain IMO, if you don't need bigger.

From memory, it was Best Buy on an "opening day" offer.



Ah, probably a lot cheaper than it should've been then

Cheapest I can find otherwise is dabs.com/pro…tml not bad for £43 though

It's okay if you will only need 120GB, and you need it now, but it's £26.58.
There are reguarly deals for 250GB for £30-£33 on here if you can wait a while.

I paid £27.99 a week or two back for some 250GB Seagate freeagent Goflex which are USB 3.0 upgradeable.

its ok deal, dont think you can really say 'its good to buy with other items for free del' as its not even half way there itself and is too expensive to be a filler item.
you can get a 250gb drive for 29.99 iirc (edit: stupid site needs too many to expire now, both deals from the last week are expired but they are not that uncommon)and obviously the higher you go the cheaper per gig it becomes.
whilst 24.99 is possible the cheapest portable harddrive around (not sure) i dont think its a great deal
even though i usually use the arguement that there is no point paying for more space than you need... sometimes when its a small increase in money for a very large increase in size its hard to use that arguement.

Obviously not the cheapest cost per GB but sometimes just being the cheapest is enough and this is certainly cheap for an external HDD. Hot from me.

No doubt it is a better deal to get a 500GB drive but if you only need less than 120GB then this is a good deal, no point in paying more for something you're not going to use though I personally would.

This is very handy for backing up things that are valuable, a backup of your backup so to speak. I have a very old IDE drive that has over 10GB of old scanned photos. This would be ideal to transfer those onto.

In my experience, my mates always buy capacities which are far too small [memory cards,USB sticks etc], just because that's all they need now. Most will regret it within a fairly short space of time, so I too say that this is not a particularly good deal.

Considering you can get 'portables' with 500Gb for around £40 or even 1Tb for around £73, then buying more capacity is a no brainer for me.

But then there's also the argument that storing too much data on one drive isn't the best practice either, a few smaller drives could be a better alternative for some.
