This has been posted a few times over the past two months, but the price has been fluctuating a fair bit. Amazon have dropped their price to £36.89 this afternoon as Play.com have just lowered theirs to £36.99. I've been waiting for this to drop lower towards £35 again, as it's been back up to £42 earlier this week.

looks good if its the same as the 250 gig 2.5 inch hard drive,cos quite easy to get case open take hard drive out and put into your laptop if your laptop will accept it only draw back if you still wanna use the case you will have to tape it together

Where?

i saw a youtube video where the guy opened the 750gb version of this & the HDD was 15mm tall!! would this be the same height? I need a cheap 9.5mm height 2.5" HDD

good price

I bought one of those for £50 some time ago, really happy with it

Myself and 5 others at work all bought these when they were 50 quid. Have been very reliable. Recommended

ZOOL! I remember that game!!! Plus, hot deal

just ordered two of those from play.com for 22.20 each ;>
hope they are in stock...

Great find - one ordered - thanks!!

£59.99 for the 1TB version too: Works out a lot cheaper if your after more space. Think this was reduced today too.

No they aren’t it says ‘Seagate Expansion 500GB External USB 2.0 Desktop Hard Drive’ £22.20 with free delivery.

Good find OP. USB powered for less than the two 250gb ones I got for £37 few weeks ago.. Much better deal than the play one as the play one is ac powered desk top..

I recommend paying an extra 2 quid and getting the seagate 500gb USB3 drive from comet.
Well worth it, drive is very compact, stylish and its USB3!!!

the one that u bought is main powered while this deal is USB powered..

I posted the £23.10 deal for this portable 500gb hard drive from playtrade last nite.. and been removed coz the seller WilkoDirect got poor rating.. After around 30minutes the item is unavailable from the seller. The status is now 'packing' and hopefully they honoured the price.

The key is in the word 'desktop', not 'portable'

I guess you should cancel your order unless you want to be dissapointed.

Does this use a SINGLE USB connection? I know some drives have 2 USB connections for power.

Which one? Give us the link please.

Good price, needed another one of these. Ordered!

Oh, and it'll work with Windows 7 no problem.

Thanks OP, been after a good 'portable' (as in powered off USB and not mains for those that can't read) drive for a while. This fits the bill perfectly!

Ordered

i think he means the verbatim

Is it possible to stick this hard drive inside a PS3, if so, how easy would it be?

What about putting this into a netbook, I hear 500GB 2.5" hard drives are a little wider than a 160GB and may not fit into an Acer 521
