Scan are also doing the retail boxed, 16MB cache version for £124.54 (again listed as £127.95 but appears in cart at £124.54), which is the cheapest price I've seen for a retail 750GB drive. (Link to Product). Same drive is £141.42 on ebuyer.

Think I'm right in saying the retail versions have a longer warranty than the OEM version, so might worth the extra £20 for some.

Thought is was expensive for a drive until I saw the size

Hmmm... I can buy two 500GB external drives for only a little more than the one 750GB bare drive. Not too hot I'm afraid.

would this be ok in a sky hd box

manufacturer's warranty of 3-5 years are worth having for a few pounds more. I had a Maxtor 80GB with 3 years' warranty and it developed some bad sectors 2 years and 6 months and then the entire disk failed at 2 years 11 months to my surprise as the PC was lightly used (last month August 2007) and amazingly eBUYER still have that disk on their web site with a picture with the 3 year warranty information when I clicked on the product info against my old invoice which is still on the web database. So I was able to get a replacement new 80GB disk from Seagate (took over Maxtor). Used to buy 50% of my disks from computer fairs now I think it is always worth buying from ebuyer or dabs or one of the long running companies. So with 750GB disk it is worth buying a disk with good warranty and keep the warranty information.

True, but for those wanting massive internal drives (I'm buying three of them) this is a pretty good deal.

and if your autie had baws she'd be your uncle. this post is about a 750gb drive not 500gb, can you find a cheaper 750gb? if not then its a hot deal:thumbsup:

Quite pricey at 0.14p a meg

Very cheap for a 750Gb drive. I know the arguement for the 2x500Gb being almost the same price, but it comes down to space in the machine. For a 750Gb drive, that is a good price. The thing that concerns me about the 750Gb drives is that everywhere I read, you should actually have a fan to keep it cool.

Last time I checked all Seagates come with 5 year warranty whether there OEM or retail

you sure?

Just keep in mind the Seagate 750Gb .10 runs slightly hotter than 250Gb or 500Gb equivalents, so don't buy one and put it somewhere poorly ventilated.
