Good cheap deal.
Could well find a Western Digital or Maxtor drive inside
Have some heat.

Targa is german and makes great stuff, iv had their comps and they are ok.

Not 100% sure but targa normaly use seagate drives .

You will have to be quick as knowing Lidl they will only have 2 or 3 available at each store...

What is the warranty period?
Is it 3 years?

great price, thanks

sunday, monday?

They had flyers instore, my partner saw it and knew I'd been looking, but didn't pick one up :whistling: She thought it was the 13th, but that seems like an odd date to me? I don't know when Lidl deals normally go live

where did you find this out from please?

can't see anything on the website

ok just read above, slow at typing lol

Rats! I was just in Lidl and decided not to pick up a flyer as I thought it was all online. More fool me - I shall try to get one next time I'm in town.

Looks a good deal ... but how many will each have? 1-3?

These are the ones they sold in Ireland - not the most elegant of external drives.... one for underneath the desk?!

]http//ww…ned

but a good price and networkable too by the looks of it?

anyone know the date it goes live?

I'm not sure why you would get this which contains a drive inside that no-one seems sure of the make of, when you can get this hotukdeals.com/ite…ex/ ?

Because this drive is half the price? Not everyone needs 1TB

would this be sata or pata? need a drive for my xbox 1

Lot of discussion here that could be no more than hot air!

I am looking for one of these and can assure anyone that wants to try that it is not on their website (only checked this morning)

If this truly is a genuine offer then surely to answer the question of what day will not be that difficult. Without seeing the flyer, I know damn well that it does not say "next week", without more detail.

Please prove me wrong....

is this usb powered?

It's from Lidl - I think it's pasta

Shouldn't be too much of a bad purchase.



So should we try tomorrow and wednesday?

Can't prove you wrong, but looks like someone else has seen it on the moneysavingexpert site forums.moneysavingexpert.com/sho…481

If you can't find what you're looking for in Lidl don't bother asking the staff, they won't have a clue. Ask the pensioner who goes in every day and tries on all the slippers.

LMFAO - I have a feeling this may also be Network capable after some Googling

I will not risk my data by copying it on to a brand TARGA, Would rather buy a WD or Seagate on which comes in 85 quids.

Hehe, i can guarantee that anyone who thinks they need a 500GB external drive will, shortly afterwards, wish they had bought a 1TB one :thumbsup:

It's always the way with storage!

i am agreeing with axum there, my 2 1tb hard drives filled up with in months.. and now thinking of another one.. great deal tho. but tempting for the 1tb version.

heat added

lidl offers tend to be area specific so you'll need to know where the OP is from.

Again, Lidl offers are area specific. If you put an offer on here, you should also say which part of the UK. It's not in my area (LS1).

my wife works for lidl in worthing, west sussex managing the specials area

she hasn't seen this deal and is not aware of any coming in...but it could be last minute or area specific

she usually knows 2 weeks in advance what specials come in but no sign of this hdd

will post back if anything changes :whistling:

So if this is in my area, it should say in the specials bit?
