Pretty good deal for a brand new 500GB hard drive delivered.
Seller is a registered business seller with excellent reputation.
I bought one and got it delivered very promptly.

Here is a link to their actual website but I think they are only selling the hard drives on eBay
thedigiboxshop.com/

Perfect for PVR's

NOTE: This is a 3.5" drive not a 2.5" drive so is no use for laptops but can be used in PC's.

Yes, as long as your existing drive is sata you are OK. I'm not sure if they have sky software but can be refomatted easily to Fat32 or NTFS. Remove your 80GB drive, fit the new drive, reinstall windows on the new drive, then connect up 80GB drive as a second drive and transfer data onto new one.

These are perfectly fine for PC's but are optimised for PVR's so run a bit slower than 7200rpm drives. Not a big deal for most people.

Probably true, the guy is selling as a shop rather than a personal seller... So they might let it slide.
