Scroll down the page for this hard disk offer. This is from the Scan's usual "Today Only", so you have to order by lunch time tomorrow before Scan changes the "Today Only" offers(tomorrow) .

For those eligible for free delivery for years (being member of a forum , AVFORUMS) this is the deal as you pay £50.94 else this is about £60 elsewhere. (Amazon does not sell this 2TB disk anymore, 3TB one is £77.98 on Amazon.)

Scan uses top of the range courier companies for deliveries, (UPS and DPD) and is DPD next day for those who are eligible for free delivery. Else delivery is £4.79 for DPD Click and Collect: £4 for 2-5 days; £5.48 next day Expresspak.

There is a lot of data, buy in pairs (two copies of backed up data) and use them in external enclosures too. ( I believe internals disks have better tolerance than external disks in burn-in tolerance testing post production.)

2TB Seagate ST2000DM006 BarraCuda, 3.5" HDD, SATA III - 6Gb/s, 7200rpm, 64MB Cache, 9.5ms, NCQ, OEM - 24 mths warranty

The Firecuda 2TB is around £90. You know your hard disk prices. This is quite a decent good price at £52 delivered if you got eligibility for free delivery from Scan.

I have a 2.5" Firecuda in one of my laptops, a good SSHD. A 1TB Barracuda was posted on here for £42 a few weeks ago so £52 for double the storage heat from me.

Pricing does not work linearly with capacity.

It is about £30 for the chassis, delivery, warranty, service...and then ~£13 per TB.

In hindsight I should have used US$ for this formula since these things are traded in dollars in exports plus an exponential adjustment as GB capacity goes up.

you don't need to use 2 x hard drives in a pair if you are just using it for an xbox or ps4 games which can just be redownloaded.

The cost of a double caddy would make the deal so much more

You are wrong, "the" deal here is a single internal disk, this deal is not two disks and a double caddy. ( Likewise stuffing 2 disks in raid 1 in a NAS box is not what I am promoting as a deal here, as it is an application of usage as an example, and this is a personal choice.)

I know what you were doing, i just think your phrasing was more than suggestive "There is a lot of data, buy in pairs"

"There is a lot of data, NEVER buy in pairs" PREFERABLY buy disks from separate mfrs and certainly from two different batches, as if they have some sort of prblem with the batch, both your main and backup will DIE together and you will have only your tears to put out the flames.

Correct , I buy a pair and mix with another branded pair, so a total 4 x 2TB with effective storage capacity of 4 TB, although technically, I could buy one of Hitachi, WDC, Toshiba, Seagate but I have not ever. But that's why I haven't bought any 4TB as yet, as it is 4 X 4 TH, around £400-£500. Although I am thinking about my next step is to back up two 2TB to a single 4TB or vice versa.

Thanks OP got two cheapo (for Music) 32GB Intenso Speed Line USB 3.0 Pendrives as well.

Unexpired as it is back on offer for "Todays Only" again. Note that Amazon sells from 3TB version now rather than 2TB. Differs from the last Scan offer buy just a few pence.
