£26.63 on the item information page. All the prices are higher on the item page than on the menu list.

yeah you just have to click order from the today only page and then its put into your basket at the cheaper price.

Good drive for someone who doesnt need a huge drive.

Interested as to why some people are voting it down? Is there another hard drive of similar capacity available for the same or cheaper? I know its not the best price per gb available however if you dont need a high capacity drive then theres no need to pay higher for a larger capacity.

Hmmm. Admittedly a great price for sata 3 but I wouldn't touch a seagate ever again after the firmware debacle

there isnt a seagate at this price on the tday only page, there is a sammy at 23.99 plus vat but the seagate is 26.39 or 29.40 for the green version

edit sorry found it now, its in a diff spot from the SATA mix, bit silly really, make syou wonder why? any issues with sat3 on sata/2 controllers?

Yeah the sata 2 and 3 hdds are in different sections. As far as I'm aware Sata 3 will work in sata 2 but only run at sata 2 speeds you might need to adjust the jumper on the drive but thats it. Bearing in mind that only a few high end SSDs actually use up all of the available bandwidth of sata 2 you will see no real difference with it being sata 3. Having said that its cheaper than any 500gb sata 2 drive that I've seen.

Splitting hairs maybe, but believe the MOQ to qualify for uncharged delivery is £20 + VAT, in which case this deal is one penny short of qualification for qty 01 with no other purchased items.
