That's a bit expensive!

Who's hard drives do they use in these anyway?

Can you find this model cheaper? If so please let me know

Too expensive. You can get better brand with same sized drives for half this price.

Wow.. it's nearly triple the price of one or two branded ones.

No, but when you're getting your ass kicked it's sometimes better to laugh it off!

thought that most TB drives were coming in at around £100 these days

I got the iomega 1TB from Tesco the other day for £60 and was half the size of this....

I'm guessing its 2 x 500GB which could be a good point I suppose but still stupidly expensive.

Not being harsh though OP, don't feel bad mate.

pcworld via pricematch with comet are doing a western digital 1tb for about 57...

It seems that what people have not realize it that this "HD" can support RAID 0 and 1.

I would recommend RAID 0 unless you know why you want RAID 0,
but RAID 1 means that data will be written to all, in the case both, disk at the same time.
So if one of the disks fails the data is still accessable on the other disk.

One is paying for the fault-tolerance.

I hope this helps

Sorry the second line should have read

Sorry about that.

Tried this yesterday.......Comet had my reserved one, but PC World next door hadn't got any to price match with!!!!

dont tell them u want to price match. go in there, take the item to the till, if it needs 'finding' get it 'found' then take it to the till and then price match.

my experience with them is: if you say you#re gonna price match, it would be OOS

how much is its cost anyway? can't see, link leads to google search
