Brilliant price especially when ya see what places like Tesco are still trying to charge for 1tb and less hard drives

Really good price, would have bought if i didnt buy it this time.

Don't forget possible topcashback of 1.57% for reserve and collect items.
That £1.20 may just cover some fuel

Good to see drive prices still decreasing.
Nice find.

Still not as gd as last months £76 at dabs.

Anyone used Toshiba hard drives? Are they reliable?

had one a few weeks, seems fine so far, quiet. Good price I paid £82 from amazon.

grabbed the amazon one

Good deal but I am not sure I could get one of these for less than £4 to make it worthwhile getting the old dabs deal

Yeap, I also had one for about a month now, all good. I paid £83, so this price is superb. No doubt all HDD prices are now really starting to fall & a tad quicker than gradually.

Takes allsorts I guess.:p

Picked this drive up from the £76 dabs deal and it is a fine drive - almost silent with a very nice Hitachi HDS5C3030BLE630 hard drive inside which spins @5,900 RPM and runs cool.

If you are looking for a drive to locate next to your TV to play back media then you could do a lot worse than this imho ...

My son also takes allsorts. He has now been banned from our local sweetshop.

It's easy to take out of the enclosure, if anyone is interested in that.

Would it fit in my 2nd hdd space in my laptop?

No, it's a 3.5" drive. Laptops normally take 2.5" drives.

I hope people are not buying this it was £85 last week £80 this week it will be back down to £75-£76 next week which will match the lowest its been which was from dabs then you also get TCB of 2.1% back on that which is another £1.50 saved.

At £80 it's ok but it's not great don't buy this unless you really have too imo these will fall a little more yet wait a week or two and save another £5.

Interesting.
Is it also easy to put back in again, without visible signs of it having been removed?

Ah, sounds like you have to break plastic tabs to get the drive out:
gearhack.com/myi…bly

Hmmm....also read this in a user review on newegg:

the inside drive can be remove without breaking the case.i broke one case … the inside drive can be remove without breaking the case.i broke one case to view howto remove the second without breaking the case.


So maybe it's possible to open them up without breaking.....tempting....very tempting...

It's quite simple to open these and use the drive separately, that's with any of these enclosed drives. You may void your warranty but who cares at this price.

Me! If I was going to lose the warranty I'd rather spend a bit more for an internal or a drive than can easily be removed.

Still not as gd as last months £76 at dabs.


Yes, but at least prices are becoming reasonable again. And I would rather buy from PC World than from dabs, although it is not a great choice either way.

done it with a western digital 2tb last year, removed it from the caddy and put into a server 6 months later it died, put it back into the caddy and shipped back to WD never had any issues from them got a new upgraded drive within 7 days

I thought this site was about current good deals not who can be first to post a comment about a time it was lower which is irrelevant if that deal has expired!

The point was It will be again soon but not if people buy it at £80 why would pc world or anywhere else sell it for £75 when people will pay £80 they wouldn't and yet there are people buying it at £80 even when it was £75 just wait a short time it will be again when you buy it at £80 it's like saying ye just bump the price up we'll pay it .
Well I won't be caught out I'll wait until next week there's a good chance they'll hit £75 and then i'll buy two and save £5 on each plus TCB (£1.50 each) as well and if you are on this site often enough you should know people kick themselves all the time for paying a price one week to find it goes cheaper the next.
The difference this time is we know these drives can be sold as low as £75 we know this because it's happened dabs did it just last month and sold 100's if not 1000's so why pay £80?
unless in dire need for storage space right at this minute?

Great price for 3tb, really nice to see data storage available at sensible prices, (post factory flooding/storms)

any links to a video showing how to open up without damage?

I'm after a new drive for my n54l

I see 2 or 3 failures a week based on about 50 - 60 repairs jobs I do a week. Toshiba HDDs are in a lot of popular laptops though C6xx range, L8xxx and C8xx, so they're common. I like to call them Toshiba FAIL drives hehe. No idea about the desktop drives, don't see enough of them to form an opinion. I also hate Toshiba RMA as it's non existent for consumers.

I have two of these and they are great so far

Got the 2tb version a few weeks a go for the same price so this is a BARGAIN! Its been good so far and the case looks well built!

seen 3tb 3.0usb cheaper.... but still hot !!!!

Banned

would never buy from PC world - shocking CS

Great deal!

Great price. I was looking at the Seagate 3Tb drives a couple of days ago. I bought one 6 months ago for £97 - they've actually gone up in price now to closer to £110!

This is a deal.

does anyone know what the best price for a smaller drive is atm?

Preferably 1 or 2 tb, USB3.0?

I want to know if it's more cost effective to just get the 3tb, even though it's more space than I'll use for now!
