Found 16th Jan 2012
Hello all,

probably a local only deal - bought a WD portable Elements drive for £37.50 today from Ellesmere Port Asda. It was on the "reduced" end of aisle section by the birthday cards. Slightly damaged box so that probably explains the price.
There were about another 4 or 5 left on the shelf so hope it helps someone.

There was a post for an offer recently for Asda WD 1tb and 500gb drive for £20, but when went to local asda in blackpool they were £75! So ring ahead before you go.

this was marked up £75 original price so guess it's the same - not sure why they want to get rid of the stock - maybe as it's USB2.0 rather than 3 I guess - whatever the reason I'm pleased!

definitely portable yeah? I'm over the water. Can't really justify traveling over and coming home empty handed.

.... I'm off to the Port

I went to bromborough asda after this deal but had no joy either, so would defo ring before you go.

I would buy one of these just to bust open and put in my laptop. But alas, I fear this is one store only.

yeah mate but not sure it's worth a trip from Liverpool as I only saw about four or five left on the shelf this afternoon - wouldn't want you to be disappointed.

Nice one OP.

Nice find. Well done, but likely to be store specific.

fantastic deal, however no chance this is nationwide

Yep, unfortunately. Suprised it's got this hot so quickly - I only posted to try to help out anyone who is in the local area! Don't really need one either but couldn't resist at this price - will always come in handy as a back up for the various others around the house.

Bargainus but definitely not going to be many around.

when are HUKD going to start banning these ridiculous time wasting posts?....

the OP has CLEARLY STATED the store and town in which he bought this item, he even let us know how many were left in stock and when. If you live too far away to take advantage of the offer then that is just tough! Try not to be so bitter about the fact that HUKD is here for ALL MEMBERS not just you and the shops on your doorstep.

thanks op - just got the last one in ellesmere port

find the cheapest price for an item? or have I got the wrong end of the stick

don't think my local will have these even at £75 as when the previous deal was posted I had a look in the electrical while I was there but didn't see any hard drives, I'm sure I've seen hard drives before but think its been awhile.

Oh for god's sake this guy's taken the time to post on here about a deal. It doesn't matter if it's local or not but it's still a deal. THAT'S what this site is about - Posting deals!!!

If people didn't post deals, then this site wouldn't exist - Simple!!!!

Wow - care to explain why, then, that the drop down menu when submitting a deal offers two choices - "nationwide" or "local"? If the administrators of this site offer a "local" choice, why would they ban these "ridiculous time wasting posts"?

I think I understand what this site is for.......

Glad to be of service mate. After getting so many great deals from this site it's good to "put something back" as it were!

Maybe let arpster know how much time you wasted there

As a direct result of this post, another hukd member got the deal. So whats your problem arpster?

arpster's just expressing an opinion, whether you agree or not he should be free to post it.

I think you're the on who doesn't understand what this site is for..... i put my coat on and went straight down to the E Port Asda...got he last one about 1/2 hour ago then phoned wife to ask her to post a reply to save anyone else a wasted trip. That's what HUKD is for... helping fellow members find deals. Thanks v much to OP who gave accurate info about exactly where to find it.

Everyone has opinions but he is more or less trying to get members banned, that isn't exactly in the spirit of this board.

Why wouldn't it have sata connections? unless they soldered the usb board where the sata ports would be. Excellent deal.

I agree with arpster, that was just a clearance deal and specific to that store, deals like this are like posting deals from your local grocers or corner shop, less than one percent of the uk population benefit from it, that does not make it a hot uk deal, because it clearly isn't. That's what this site is about, helping the uk people in general not just one two people.

So what your saying is those that got one of these Portable Hard Drives it was a waste of their time. If the poster had not posted the deal others would not have took a trip to their local Asda store and bagged themselves a bargain. Just because most of us didnt score for this deal doesnt make it a waste of time. Christ im surprised people actually go out of their way and post their findings when all they get is stick.
