500gb 2.5" sata hard drive (used) at CEX for £20

Found 25th Jul 2017
500gb 2.5" sata hard drive (used). Comes with 2 year warranty in case it fails.


I stuck one in my (previously) 160gb PS3 Slim, to take advantage of all the PS3 games.

PS3 PSN also has some superb bargains that you don't get on the PS4 PSN.


Mine was a WD Elements 7200 RPM model, though I imagine they vary. I struggled to find one for less than £40 new and with the long warranty this seems fairly sensible.

Sorry. Half asleep. I meant to write 'all the PS plus PS3 games'.
I put a 1TB SSHD in my PS3 to help boost performance and increase storage, only cost me about £45. I'd suggest this route, even your 500gb will fill quickly if you're going the digital route...

I got a macbook pro from them but after 7months it needs a new logic board, the guarantee was only 6 months. Very let down with their service.

If you were sold a 6 months warranty on a used product, and it breaks down after 7 months, that's very bad luck - not bad service. Whether they also provide poor service is another matter - I've not had problems with returning faulty products for refunds when DOA at least.

Wow. Lots of negative comments, but not one single comparable or better alternative?

It's because it's a used HDD, man. I wouldn't recommend a used drive to anyone, even for £20. Well, unless you didn't care about the data
