Sounds good, though wonder who's the actual hard drive manufacturer... doubt it would be Medion.

sounds like managers special but if nationwide them megahot for all imo
edit: manufacturer varies from what i have seen in past but they use the big names eg samsung toshiba etc

The manager said that he could only speak for the North East and that all store managers have been instructed to reduce this drive.He went on to say that it will deffo be at this price at all store from Yorkshire and up over from there,including Scotland.He couldn't speak for the rest of the country.

thanks very much i will try and get one shortly

medion are relatively big in Germany. Wouldn't be suprised if they made this themselves

Likely to be a Samsung 500GB 5400 rpm drive. Medion use a lot of Samsung drives in their laptops.

thanx will go and have a look in derby

None in Rugby, only the newer 640GB ones at full price.

sold out in brum really needed this too!

None in my local,:( but good deal for those that are lucky.

Which stores did you visit?

GOOD STUFF! oO

Good find - portable ones are so much more convenient and I tend to carry mine round in a Nintendo DS sock for protection (maybe a helpful tip). Thanks OP> heat.

Is that the branch down the road from the Knotty Ash snuff quarry and jam butty mine?

Been down to Glossop Aldi.. They had a few in but they had a reduced sticker on from 54.99 to 39.99. Didnt bother asking to see if it was 29.99.

confirmed in oxford

£39.99 in Stockport.

Was marked as full price (£54.99) but scanned at £39.99.

Top Tip.
I was told by the manager in my local Aldi,that Aldi have so much stock (things in general,not just this drive) that needs to be turned over that anything that has been for sale in store for over 12 weeks,is then half priced.True or not i can't confirm,but i am inclined to believe him.
So if you have seen something instore you fancy,has been on sale for a while and is plentiful in stock,it may be worth enquiring about it's possibility of being reduced after 12 weeks.

Instore only

Nice find will check my local Aldi

I went to Metrocentre store, and they only had the 500Gb usb 2.0 models in stock for £54.99, they had no idea about this deal.

Luckily I can get to the blyth store easily, so i went passed there on the way home, They had one left, in a glass cabinet next to the till, clearly marked as £29.99

guess its just luck whether your local store will have one but bargain for what it is!

voted hot.

Thanks for posting!

In local store in ilford seven kings its full price

The portable drives are usually good spec Seagate drives.

Same in Dunfermline

Knighthood Aldi had them in glass case, no price marked.
I asked the price and was told 54.99 but I never asked for it too be scanned to double check.
Wish I had tho, I would have paid the 29.99 if it was

There were a few in Bromsgrove Aldi next to Morrisons, I spotted them in the far right cabinet by on the till closest to the wall. However they wern't reduced a couple of days ago when I looked, I sometimes work in that area but am off to Germany to work this week so can't grab one, so thought i'd let you know if you want one and it's not too far for you.
