750Gb Seagate External USB 2.0 Hard Drive only £285 @ Maplin.

Found 24th Oct 2006
This 750Gb Seagate External USB 2.0 Hard Drive is £299.99 from Maplin, but if you sign up to their newsletter (top right on homepage) you can get an extra £15 off this price, making it £285 including delivery. That works out at 38p per GB, not amazing, but if you need some kind of storage of this size, I think it's a good price.

Of course you could argue that you should buy a couple of 320GBs or 500GBs, but it depends what you want it for.

Mad money!! Your right, some 320s or 500s would definitely be better value! Unless you have a 700gig file you gotta back up lol.

I'd deffo wait until this comes down in price (which it will when larger HDDs become more commonplace). Not a great deal IMHO. 2x 300GB HDDs would be cheaper I think.
