Hello all,

I bought this drive today in Currys Basildon (Pipps hill), they still had a few. I asked the guy and he said it should be available in all the stores. A superb bargain, if you need a large but not huge drive. Item is 0000517061. This is usb powered so very good if you have a laptop and need extra memory. Also I can confirm that it works only with one usb plugged in (I have used a different cable from the one provided as well as the one provided, but just plugging in one). I am going to use as another wii loader drive, just as a back up (main drive I already have is a wd passport).

That is fine, I know what you are saying, but if don't need 400gb and happy with 250gb this is the cheapest around at the moment....(for the size obviously).

As you saying that is a previous price, plus a special one off discount! Sometimes just nonsense comments make me wonder why do I post deals....
