This is still available for delivery or collect at store, it's a very good price IMHO

yup very nice price

The last time I bought a deskstar the drive failed after 2 weeks. I got a replacement and that failed within 2 days.

Deskstar brand is not as good as it was when IBM made them.

[SIZE=2]Thanks for the feedback sabrelord Perhaps they're much more reliable these days...[/SIZE]

I have an Hitachi laptop drive.... very good and silent

Deskstar's are renowned for their unreliability and have been dubbed 'deathstars'

I worked for a company that used IBM thinkpads as standard which used the Deskstar HDD. The amount of drives we saw fail was ridiculous - some even only after a couple of months of use.

In my opinion if you value your data avoid deskstar HDD's.

Spot on Greg...I've had two mishaps with "deathstars" and a friend of mine recently had his fail....so avoid is also my recommendation.

Now £37.99 for collect at store!
