I'd also suggest spending an extra 1p+ to reach £100 spend to get a £10 voucher instead of just a £5 one.

This one or the LeCie 5tb???

With the £10 voucher, I'm leaning towards this

Yes, it does not count.

Options for this one - pick up this afternoon; for the LeCie 5tb - might get it by Christmas.
I had a portable Seagate and after a couple of years use it started to make squeaky noises and then failed. Guess what I had not backed everything up, so the moral of the story is any hard drive making more noise than usual back it up.

It used to be that you installed s large second hard drive which you could back up everything including the operating system Then if a virus hit you could reinstall from the backup

However with ransom ware it now locks and encrypts everything that is attached. So you are better backing up and then detaching the drive.

Thanks OP this deal os tempting to buy, to take out of its case and use as an internal drive to up htage my existing. Decisions, Decisions?
I got a WD Elements 5TB in Curry's for this price last year not really a great price
Wouldn't you go for the portable one for extra £10...? If you do you also end up £10 voucher so it end up same price as this but you get smaller portable one?

Cheeky, not really much you can buy so cheap at Argos, or its oos,
Wouldn't this be better then with the 100 quid spend in mind?

Also a good deal but depends whether you want the free voucher or just the hard drive under the £100 mark.

For the "Porsche" Lacie it says 6-7 weeks lead time. which means the items will be shipped on the slow boat from China - so its actually a Trabant made to look like a Porsche. The drives inside both are Seagate ones.
Cannot believe I got a 5tb Toshiba for £80 back when Barclays Bespoke Offers was a thing.
haha, I reserved a 5TB one from Argos last week, by the time I went to pick it up the price went up by £10 - so I left it - didn't realise they can change the price of reserved items!
This is not the portable version and I'm assuming it's mains powered rather than just USB?
Is this the one you can dismantle and put directly in to a PS4?

Heat added but decided to go for the portable version for £10 more, and get a £10 voucher...

yeah and this is just inviting those who managed to snap up the prime bargain on these at circa £50 in 2016 to wax lyrical about that deal.
I use these as Time Machine backup drives for my Macs, they have been reliable, so far, but a little noisy in terms of vibrations passed through the cabinet to whatever they are sat on (wood, in this case), when lying horizontally (but I should say this is in a very quiet room). I reduced the sound transmission by glueing 5cm of very complient cushion foam to the back of some scrap metal that I had and used that as mats for the Seagates to sit on. They are now just about audible but it doesn't disturb anyone. I know Seagate don't have a brilliant reputation on some models/batches but of the Seagate and Western Digital drives I use, failure rate has been low and about equal.

Anyway, this is around the online ebuyer type price, so good if you want to pick one up on the high street right away. Hot.
Great deal. Thanks

You should pay and collect. This obviously would freeze any price increase. And if you change you mind, Argos refunds money after seven days if you haven't collect your reservation.

As the original poster had a picture of Stewie from Family Guy as his avatar, wasn't it self-explanatory ?
