that's wierd....tried to change the link but in the edit menu the link was ok, although the "go to deal" link takes you to some batteries indeed

Paid about £45 for 500gb few months back, so still similar price per GB, but good price nonetheless

bought a 1tb version of this yesterday because they were out of stock of the other one on sale.

good price but Maplin after sale service was the lowest of the low the other week for me, I will never buy from them again, you have been warned

HOT!!

the price is actually £59,99 you can get a £2 voucher discount if you have one, you can get it by subscribing to them, so you can get it in the post or online/email
you also get a free key finder chain worth a tenner if you spend over £50

2.5" drive?

2.5" drive?


yes it's 2.5"

Since it's 2.5" it takes its power from USB so no power adapter needed. You can get larger and cheaper but it will be 3.5" and need a power adapter.

Think its a cold deal as the MJ Samsung 500gb Drives are around £38.

I'm not sure but last time i checked 640 was bigger than 500... will go work it out again now, but im sure thats the case... brb

Unless the drive in this is a removable S-ATA and not a USB hard soldered to the PCB then this is cold compared to

hotukdeals.com/dea…172

plus any caddy costing under £10...tell me im wrong!

49% more expensive for 28% more storage. The 500gb MJ Drive is better value for money, but some may need the extra 140gb.

Wow you are smart, but on that logic a 1TB drive is bigger and better than a measly 640gb one.
Or perhaps people are more interested in £ per gb unless 140gb is actually needed.

I can get smaller drives cheaper? would you advise i just carry 4 of 5 of them about instead?

just so i know like

err its only 140g bigger and for that you are paying more per GB representing worse value for money, unless you really need the extra 140gb.

You can do what you like with your 4 or 5 drives.

But do carry on .

Cheers, thanks for clearing that up.... yeah i mean who really needs a bigger drive these days anyway... will get the paedo one you where on about

thanks
