Is it just me or does this seem like an AMAZINGLY cheap price considering the 500GB is being sold at PLAY for £69.99!?

Pricing error!?

Seems very good. Just £56.99 with Varsity discount too - shame the Quidco can't shave a few more £'s off

Still, at just over 7p a gigabyte i'm sorely tempted to add one to my hard drive family...
My only concerns are the complaints about the plug on the 500gb model over on Amazon
amazon.co.uk/MAX…YK2

Placed an order, thanks, brilliant price!

Yeah. I would be very wary after reading those reviews. Especially that any buyer will be dealing with a website RMA and not a shop, so take into account all the return postage costs.

I had a problem with a product I bought from Play.com and was told that because they were a Channel Island's based company that I needed to deal directly with the manufacturer. It was a Seagate external drive and it was a nightmare. I had sent it my recorded delivery and paid extra to ensure it was properly insured. For about 6 weeks Seagate insisted all was okay then suddenly they said the item was not recieved. Royal Mail's claim procedure is abysmal, so I ranted enough to Seagate in US and promptly recieved a replacement (refurb) drive. I then recieved paperwork from Royal Mail which I inturn told them I had resolved my issue.

Buyer beware on returns after 3 months to play.com


That said voting hot for a good deal

Oops, cancelling my order now.

It's absolute garbage.

Warranty is very important with HD. I wouldnt bother.

confused!

in the market for an external hdd with big capacity, there's been quite a few deals posted on hukd lately, this Maxtor 750gb one, but also there is this Buffalo DriveStation 1TB TurboUSB external hdd, is it a better deal? but more importantly is it a better drive/manufacturer?

hotukdeals.com/ite…-w/

I got mine for £25 when Currys in Nothfield closed down. Fabulous product and life saver for many.

I have had 2 maxtors fail. Never again. Will stick with MyBook which are quality drives and (touch wood) have been very reliable.

Another important point to remember. Unlike most items, where warranty is virtualy failsafe security, when it comes to digital storage, if your drive dies on you, you will have lost your information and that is never covered.

Even if you are a techy so you could, in theory, open the enclosure to try and retrieve data via another USB connector or inserting into a desktop, you will invalidate your warranty.

I would strongly advise to avoid this product.

i would really like to buy an external HD, but all the ones that get posted on here seem to get slated in one way or another? What would be a good buy for a 500gig, paying £50 - £75?
Thanks :thumbsup:

I just bought the Buffalo Drivestation 500GB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive from Amazon for £50. Seemed a good deal and a good make (don't like maxtor) would have gone for a Western Digital but this seemed better for the same price.

750GB for £56 with Varsity is an excellent price but personally wouldn't go for a Maxtor...

I was tempted but not after reading the reviews on Amazon and learning about the almost non-exist support from Maxtor ; its a Cold, Cold deal. Good price though but there are cheaper and faster ways of obtaining a paperwieght..........

And yet the USB/Firewire version of this drive which has more to go wrong gets good reviews:

amazon.co.uk/Max…s_t

Confusing.

amazon.co.uk/Wes…8-1

£55 for 500gig isnt too bad. Quality drive as well.

amazon.co.uk/Buf…CIW

what about £79.99 for 1TB? Buffalo is a quality drive right? (well most of the drives in side the casing are the usual suspects, Samsung, Hitachi etc)

I have one of these bought at the start of the year for over £100 no problems with it at all.
