The 640 gig 2.5" samsung for £45 at ebuyer is better value

True but if you need the additional internal space then this would be pretty handy to have.

Good find OP.


highest capacity 2.5" HDD in a standard 9.5mm form factor, very good deal!!!!!

OP please can you update the post to show the new sale price of £79.99p (just saw the new price).

Very good deal. This is normally just over the £100 mark.

PS3-friendly in preparation for all those homebrew apps

Totally agree, £35 more for just another 110GB, makes the Toshiba very poor value.

Your timing is perfect OP!

Teensy++ anyone!

Im right this minute reinstalling all my stuff after buying one of those 640gb's posted on here last friday ! Amazing deal and although this may sound a little bitter £35 more for 110gb extra does seem very steep . The 640gb was £45 delivered .

Update - It's now reduced in price down to £71.12p.
