Where's the price?

It's in the title. If you press go to deal it will take you to the page which also has the price.

is this worth it? seems okay for £40 but are speeds good and would it be reliable?

Sorry guys, link is actually

ebay.co.uk/itm…345

Won't let me edit the post though can someone else do it please?

just checked reviews and seems good!

I thought the USB3 version looked different than this? squarer?

USB 3 at this price? Wow. oO

Thanks jameshorton57, bought one!

Hmmm is it usb 3.0?
The last paragraph of the listing :
"It's not just easy to use, but it's fast and energy efficient too. Enjoy fast data transfer speed with USB 2.0 connectivity and 5400 rpm drive performance. Built-in power management ensures energy efficient operation."
Says usb 2.0 in that??? Hmmm

Its usb 3.0 and 2.0 says it on the box, great price, have some heat!

Oops never noticed that on the box- cracking deal for sure

so its usb 2.0? i just bought it

Great items. Works well.

Its surely USB 3?

There is a squarer looking model, but identical to this as far as i can tell.

I presume the squarer model is a more up-to-date version. Certainly slightly smaller. It is at £40.79 in Scan's "Today Only" section, plus postage if you're not a free-post qualifying member.

Good deal, although it prompted me to order the newer version for 80p more from Scan (I have free next Day though, which swung it really).

There is definitely a USB 3.0 version of the older model - I've owned one. However, for 80p (possibly + p+p) more I'd go for the newer version from Scan, as it's likely there's a higher performance driver in there, which would give you slightly better speeds. Of course if you miss the Scan deal today and this is still available tomorrow, then it's still a great drive at this price.

Nope "more than 10 available" right now

would these world straight outta the box with ps3/xbox? or would i need to format to NTFS/FAT32?

cool did you order and pay today



I ordered and paid few hours ago and also got the 'order dispatched' notice 10min ago.

I ordered at about 4pm and have had the despatch email.

Any idea how to track the parcel? It says to login to your ebuyer account but I havent got one as it was bought off ebay!

I have found a link on the ebuyer website where you can check the status of your order, it says mine will be delivered on Monday.

I shouldn't worry - poor info on there. It also states "USB 3.0 cable".Just because the casing is the same, the argos item may still be an older model. They do not quote the manufacturers model number. See my prev post for the Seagate web site link to this exact model.

Ordered 8pm, shipped 9.40pm. Impressive!
Been a long time since 500Gb drives were this price ... Voted scalding. Thanks OP.

Thanks!
At £40 it's worth a pop!
