Fair enough, although they have been taken from new machines so in effect the drives are new.

These drives have been taken from new machines.

...And as such, your only warranty is BigPockets. Buy a new hard drive and you get a 3 possibly even 5 year warranty which is very important with items such as hard drives

Cold here too I'm afraid

You got me there lol :giggle:

Although it may still be possible to claim via the manufacturer as I have a few times with oem drives in systems I've bought in the past.

Can't help but wonder why?

Sorry, voted cold from me as well.

I live close to Bigpockets, literally just 1 mile away and whilst even at £29 being able to collect instead of having posted the item, the fact that it is a system pull and has just 1 year warranty with Bigpockets (as generally good as I find them) there are better bargains out there.

Same size drive, same manufacturer, and a bigger 8mb cache is to be had from Ebuyer, using google checkout with super saver delivery for £44.78 - the £10 google checkout, making it £34.78. If you had delivery from Bigpockets you would be paying a quid more and not getting the manufacturers warranty OR the better cache memory.

Nice find, but in reality there are as good or better deals that are new out there, and these drives would be great for XBox softmodded media centres.

Oppps, just noticed someone else has posted the same find as myself :oops:
