FYI: This will be 2 x 1TB drives inside i think.

Good deal but i'd never buy from pixmania again had problems galore in the past but that's just me :-)

don't forget quidco.

I also used pixmania and they were great.

I bought a TV off Pixmania once which i then wanted to return, they tried to charge me 15% 'restocking' fee until I had a little word about consumer rights

you think? read my post "Iomega has a total storage capacity of 2 TB (2 x 1 TB)"

It could be that I was just unlucky, but over a year ago I bought an Iomega 500GB external drive. The drive itself is ok, but the electronics that interfaces to it has died. Hopefully this will not have the same problem.

I've had a 300Gb Iomega drive for about three years and never had a problem with it. Would have no issue at all buying another. Not sure about the 2x1Tb though.........

Just what I have been looking for - heat & repped - thanks :thumbsup:

You were lucky, being based abroad (the Channel Islands i think) their 'Guarantee' is:

[COLOR="Blue"] "WARRANTY AND AFTER-SALES SERVICE
Can I return my product if I'm not happy with it?
You have a 15-day money-back guarantee that starts when you receive the product"[/COLOR]

After that its (for most of their products):

[COLOR="Blue"]"How does the warranty work?
During the first year of warranty, if you experience any problems with the product you
contact the manufacturer's after-sales service. The contact details for most of the manufacturers
can be found on our site in the section “after-sales service”. During the second year you send the
product back to us and we will have it repaired". [/COLOR][COLOR="Black"](when extended cover purchased)
Dunno how all this would work if buying a big telly![/COLOR]

Same here, will never buy from pixmania again, they asked us to send a dvd recorder back that arrived faulty via special delivery, had to fax my proof of postage but never received the postage cost, I wouldn`t have been bothered but it was £18.50 with insurance! Tried to call a few times, gave up as the phone calls were adding to my cost too. I wish i`d known my consumer rights better, I would have insisted. Nevermind I learnt to stick with UK companies.:x
Buy at your own risk, just my opinion based on my experience with them.

I had one of these as a 1TB version [2 X 500GB drives] and the fan noise was VERY LOUD! So am warning you now if it has a fan in it you will hate it.... Plus double the size/weight.... And yeh I ouldn't buy from this company again due to poor support on their own branded product being faulty.

refraining from voting as Pixmania CS is the pits

I bought an Iomega drive (2 x 500 gig) and had the same problem. The actual hard disks are fine, they're still running in a new (non-Iomega) enclosure, but the Iomega electronics died a protracted death. Looking on Amazon and other review sites, it seems that what happened to me is a common problem.

Don't buy Iomega is my advice. Lousy products, even lousier customer service.

If somebody out there can please send me a friend £7 voucher code invite thingy I would really appreciate it

thanks
