My Passport WD For Mac Portable hard drive 320GB instore 34.97 Currys

30
Found 20th Feb 2010
One of 2 drives i've just picked up from Aylesbury Broadfields store. About 6 left on the shelf.

It's preformatted for Mac, don't know if it can be formatted for a PC.

Bargain if you ask me!

Edit to add product code : 0000553740 - Hope this helps ;-)

Heck of a good price if its more than the one store.

Yes, they can be formatted to pc.

Hey, good find. On your recipt their should be a product code. If you add that on this thread other people can also check their locals for stock.

Would be great if you can do that. Cheers.

Woaw! Even better than the Lidl deal! Can you locate it on the site or give us the product code? Thanks.

I wnt instore with the product code. Searched that store and all the local ones, not one of then had stock. Worth a check. Really neede one too And the screen defo said £34.97

None in bradford or leeds :-(

Just rang up CS, they rang aylesbury, and aylsebury said they have none in stock at that price..

Apparently the one in aylesbury is an older product ( not so sure lol ) so the curry's customer services can't pricematch it..

Well if anyone's interested, there are none in Bristol. The closest one is PC World in Gloucester who have 1 left.

Hope that helps someone !

This is not expired! just not available in all stores!

Why do you bother reading here if you're so negative? The deal exists, and is not expired. Sorry if they don't stock near you!

Banned

There are at least 5 of these left at the Currys/PC World Megastore in Leeds Birstall.

They are on the shelf near the Apple section.

These are identical to the standard passport drives. All they do is format them for HFS+ and put them in box with a yellow background. That entitles WD to charge extra for a fancy Mac version. Put it on a Windows system and you will prompted to reformat it.

Don't pay extra for Mac versions. Just buy the normal passports usually at a noticeably lower price and use Disk Utility to reformat to HFS or HFS+ , whatever suits you.

As for the Wii, no idea as I don't have one, but this is a bog standard usb external drive when all is said and done. You would probably have to reformat it to FAT32, I suppose, but that is easily done.

I use a 120GB WD Passport with the Wii. Works fine.

Hope I can find one of these near me. Always seem to need more space.

Anyone come across these in London yet?

Still 2 left in birstall as of 3 o clock..
Oh and the one in bradford, is being used as a demo unit, so there isnt actually stock there :-(
