Imagine the price of this 10 years ago heat from me.


I remember paying £300 for a 40MB hard drive...not a typo, megabytes...

Given the Pi 4 will be have USB boot support soon, might be a solid option for a shed load of old games with Retroarch, etc. Then again, given it's a 3.5", will probably need a powered caddy or such like to work properly.



For what all hard drives are used for hard core corn? 40935465-CI6Aa.jpg

Being back on the Dell site, reminds me of the good ole days, when I was picking up Dell pc misprices. Ahhh the memories of HUKD of old

I remember buying a 60GB IDE for £92 once. This is amazing
Sweet price, Shame it's not a 2.5 drive or I'd be all over it!

Heat, what can I use it with? Raspberry Pi or something?
I've got an old optiplex. Would this fit in it? Says it does...still no justification to buy it..

I think the Amiga hard drive upgrade was 20mb from memory...

It did bolt onto the side nicely, and I think it meant you didn't have to swap Civ disks all the time...
Original Xbox HDD Upgrades are sooo perfect for this
If I get a mounting bracket for it, can I whack it in a ps3. Thanks in advance
Really don’t know what I’ll use this for but ordered anyway
No wonder it's so cheap. The drive has no cover on top. Fluff and dust will kill it in no time flat
Yep, a great bargain for those that don't have a drawerful of old HDDs replaced by SSDs. I use 'em with a ~£6 caddy as external drive backup. Their ability to write big dumps without slowing down means they are just as good as SSDs for this purpose. So for free or, in this case, nearly free it's a no-brainer.

Not compatible with my Alienware-Aurora R6 according to listing.Was £9 after discount code too (energy provider)
Wish this was 2.5”. I need a couple

Which caddy do you use?

Nope. This is a 3.5 hard drive. PS3 takes 2.5
Another 20% off , if you have a Blue Light Card account.

I've still got one
£9.66 with unidays it's a no brainer. Just built a rig out of old stuff I had knocking about it was a haswell i5 4690 in a asus rog board with 16gb of ram a corsair h80 aio and for hdds I had a few 120 and 256gb ssd lying about from when they were really cheap. So I used a 120gb Kingston as a boot drive and a old 500gb normal hdd for storage all put inside one of those Sahara rgb cases from a few weeks back at £43. I know it's a few years old but still a capable everyday PC that looks pretty good and all its cost is £43 for that case the rest was old spares so this 500gb for under a tenner is a useful buy you never know when it will come in useful.
Cool £9.66 here too plus cash back. Now to decide which old drive to butcher for the caddy. Got to be worth it just to backup all the phones in the house or a few pics
Damn its 3.5" nearly bought it
I saw this drive a while ago for this price - it's been this price for months - and I thought no point posting that as who would vote hot on a 500Gb mechanical drive in this day and age! - oh well.

I voted hot.

I wouldn't brag about owning an Alienware, it’s as bad as buying from pc World...
just purchased, bargain
zcaprd731/05/2020 23:48

Would need a docking station or an external hard drive enclosure as it’s 3.5” it would need additional power
Handy for home CCTV setup?
Cheap portable drive just add usb enclosure
Any unidays or other codes please inbox me
Nice, just ordered a couple as cold storage for media files.
