sil0 already posted this (http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/seagate-500gb-expansion-portable-ha/744905) however I thought it deserved a little more attention considering we can get £10 off, as follows:

Simply add a cheapy mouse mat for 58p (http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.207-0389.aspx) to bring the order over £50. Then use voucher code TDX-RTHK at the checkout to get this pretty nice price!

Edit: They are out of mousemats but just look for something cheap like "value dvd-r 5 pack" (£1) or "Tesco Value Modem Cable" (£0.38) to get it over £50..

This is a nice alternative if you want a USB powered drive, however if you don't mind it being powered and chunkier then I'd grab this one posted by robappleby89 instead:

*wonders if the chillers are actually reading the deal*

Fact: Cheapest out thrre for 500gb portable external
Fact: It works (I ordered mine)


why the cold votes? or is it because of the Michael Jackson drive deal?

Seems decent to me.

500gb for 40 notes, is good whichever way you look at it.

good price, bought this from play not long ago for £50.

+1.

probably, airheads comparing it to the 1TB for £44....not noticing (or knowing) that this is usb-powered whereas the latter is mains-powered!

feel sorry for the OP

Was going to post this - i assumed someone would have beaten me to it!
Very good price for the 2.5" USB powered version.

Hm, just hope the fools who are incapable of reading or udnerstanding technology (or both?) don't cause this to drop off the radar for folks it's actually of use to.

nice one op, it's a steal at £40

Agreed!

I paid £44 for a 350Gb just a little while ago. great price!

don't expect a full 500gb, got mine from currys and my pc recognises 390gb when empty!!

There must be something wrong with your drive, which i doubt. Or it has installed software on it, or you are lying.

As a 500GB drive would never normally show up as 390GB empty.

Drive makers define a MB as 1,000,000 Bytes - windows defines it as 1,048,576 Bytes... So that knocks it down first of all. Second the formating of a drive makes some space unusable. Third you probably have a hidden partition in there for security or backup purposes do a complete format of the drive and I'd be hoping for something around 470GB.

If a drive actually had bad sectors then windows would let you know all about it

Actually 470 is probably a bit optimistic, would expect 465GB.

500GB for £40....
Just ordered mine!!!:p

Good price i have one of these paid £50 nicker too, good drive. BUT i would try and grab the S2 sammy from the bay of flea or somewhere if you can the MJ edition is worth the extra £7 for the shiney,shiney and travel case is cool...
I bought one of those too last one frmo play £46 wish i had grabbed a handful from Ebuyer when they were £38 damn that was a SUPER FINE DEAL......
Hk

It's good, but still not as cheap/cost effective as getting a cheap enclosure and buying an internal 2.5 drive

Why expired? It's still available!

The cheap mat might be gone, but they are plenty of other cheap items to make up the £50 price threshold - even one or two suggested in this thread!

STILL WORKING!

Yes it is.

Why don't you post a link to a 2.5 drive and enclosure that works out cheaper than £40.55..... oh that right, you can't. Now keep your lies to yourself.

Yep still working, why is it Expire ?

Also it is not cost effective to build. Cheapest internal 500GB drive is nearly £40 on its own!

Original Poster

How do we un-expire this? Or has the voucher expired?

Original Poster

Ah, just went through this and the voucher has indeed expired. Shame!

I ordered this about 30 mins ago and the discount worked - had other vouchers too so ended up paying £25. Bargain!

just ordred code was fine 12:22

Original Poster

Oh, maybe it just woudln't let me re-use the voucher then since it's account bound?

How do we un-expire (and who the heck expired it... sigh)?
