Worth a punt.

No chance of getting it I'm afraid

Voted hot but doubt they will honour

Place holder price to attract clicks.

Seagate, so still overpriced

Seriously, they won't honour, so why waste time.

Big mistake - you will have a countless numpties ordering it and then emailing them to ask them if the price is a mistake and whether they will honour it. Look, I am doing it right... now oO

Trustworthy company? Payment taken on despatch or on order?

Stop it! If you tip them off they'll never dispatch the 50 I've ordered for me and 49 of my "friends".

As RS are a distributor they may have an information portal where links/info/pics are updated by suppliers rather than by themselves.

It's actually a suitcase stuffed with floppy disks.

Heated great price. Well worth putting an order in. Small chance they might honour with some limitations e.g. one per customer. Very good price but still not like they giving it away for nothing either, at £55.60 they might break even or make just a small loss that might be worth it for the potential repeat custom you never know....
