Thanks mate, 2TB model also quite cheap at £56.98 here -- that's £12 cheaper than what it is currently on Amazon (and £8 cheaper than the lowest price according to CamelCamelCamel).
Good spot. Heat added.
Can these be used as extra storage for xbox one?

Xbox one takes usb 3.0 min 256gb and I think max is 8tb
Great deal but something to note is that I believe that 3.5" drives require an external power adapter as USB3.0 doesn't provide enough power. 2.5" drives however do not. Useful info I'd hope if planning to buy as an xBox HDD.

As far as I'm aware all desktop external drives require a power source. It's only the portable drives that run directly through the usb. Please correct me if I'm wrong

I say power source, I mean mains powered
I recently had some issues with a WD MyBook Live and had to get the data of it using a caddy. That was when I learnt that a 2.5" external drive with usb is fine but the 3.5" ones aren't. I guess as you write those 2.5 ones are the portable ones and the others are just hard disks in a caddy.
Good deal shame about the seller. People never learn; there have been many, many reports of how bad they are to deal with when you have a problem, but people still use them to save a few quid...E Notes are a joke, and try to phone them abandon all hope.

Thanks.
Are these quite old now? I picked up a Toshiba 2tb second hand one that looks a bit dated. This looks similar.

Quite right - I tried to use them once - NEVER AGAIN!! - A complete nightmare to deal with.
