Yep I've read several good reviews about this, but the clincher for me is Seagate and their 5 year warranty :thumbsup:

I got this drive when Play.com did a misprice in April and I think I got it for £69.99...

A fantastic drive.

voted cold...

Well we can all find some stats to prove pretty much anything we like. If you feel the technical stats you've highlighted deserve this deal to be voted cold that's your choice, however for everyone reading I would personally highlight the extra 3 years warranty the Seagate drive has (5 years compared to the WD's 2 years).

What's more important to you - having to wait an extra few milliseconds (allegedly) for the transfer of data, or having an additional 3 years in warranty?

Lol, I just read the review as posted by william. It actually recommends the Seagate drive, mentioning that the performance differences in comparison to the Western Digital are "admittedly slight and not noticeable without benchmarks".

"Being a Seagate product and having a five year warranty are also feathers in its cap..."

Hardly worth a cold vote William? I expect you may be simply trolling on this lazy Sunday afternoon?

These are nice enough drives, but hardly a huge bargain to get excited about at this price. If it's out of stock at Amazon, DABS have it in stock at exactly the same price.

BTW, I have one, and it seems to work ok.

Exactly, that guy's an idiot.

What's amazing is that this is only a few quid more than getting the bare drive itself!

I think this is worth it only because it offers the 5 year warranty. My preference has always been to buy Western Digital as Ive not had good experiences with Maxtor and Seagate. Normally its 3 years warranty you get so an additional 2 is good.
