Look at it another way, other high street retailers are going bust - The Currys/PC world group is one of the last remaining IT retailers on the high street. For me that is a big bonus. I can go there look at the items and then choose to buy it there or elsewhere. Their service has suffered, but they are competing against no service on-line retailers.

If you choose to buy things elsewhere even when they have the best pricing then in the long run we will all lose out. For me I can order on line - then go and collect the same day. That is a big bonus and I have had very good deals from them.

Nearest available to collect from central london = wimbledon, otherwise home delivery option available

An ok price considering drives have risen in price the last few years but the downside is having to buy from this shower of shizer!

I’d rather pay a few quid more from a better retailer. Sorry ...perhaps not the most positive response there Op. I will give this heat though as it’s about a tenner cheaper than Amazon nonetheless.

You could always buy a recertified one for £57.99 if you dont want to give pc world your cash. wdc.com/en-…tml
Fair price for a new 3tb drive, this has the much faster 7200rpm drive in it, so perfect for a little shuk'l operation! The actual model is at least 5 years old, but still one of the better external drives, got a few, running flat out, 24/7, never had any issues with them reading or writing.

These are EOL models for pcworld/currys so stock will be limited or hard to find

Yeah - it's USB, just plug it in.

If you're asking if it'll fit inside, then No, because it's a 3.5 inch drive.

Thanks - could you confirm if it's really 7200 rpm? That would be a bit unusual as 3.5 externals are usually 5400/5900 rpm because 7200 rpm drives can heat up too much when enclosed without airflow - reviews say the 4TB version is a WD40EZRX which is 5400 rpm ..

Yeah it can be used for Xbox one X, it will need to be formatted by the xbox though meaning it won't be useable on PC/Laptop without reformatting, partitioning can be done to split it's memory and use how you like.
Any ideas if this will work with PS4?
This will work with most devices that can use external storage. It can even be reformatted for use with Mac and Linux based devices.

I can't remember the last time I went into one of their stores. I always buy online.
I would imagine that a lot of people visit the store, get advice on a product, and then buy online somewhere.

Not only that, but they're also mildly competitive now (unlike, ahem, Maplins or Currys/PCW in the 90s) so I think it's acceptable. Yes, the staff can be a bit short but other than Amazon Prime Now (small selection), there's not many places I can go and look around for IT stuff in a pinch.

I never quite understood the Currys hate; I am certain if they went bust or shut up shop, the same people complaining about the poor service would be complaining that we have no consumer electronics stores on the high street any more.

I hope so - food for thought anyway. With Maplin gone, it's literally only Currys left and I know I would miss them if they disappeared.

Easy, if something goes wrong with the item and you've bought it in store, good luck. If you've bought it online they'll change it under protest. I'll only buy from there in exceptional circumstances these days

Everywhere else: Tescos, Amazon, Argos, no problems

Today's Market is not the same as Yesterday's Market though is it?.

(As a few of the comment earlier on here have indirectly shown/expressed, etc?).

The World is almost a tenable place now ...

Eg.
Woolworths went under 1 Month before it's 100th birthday.

Toys R Us is going under after being here for 125 Year's!.

Bodger's is going under, after more than 125 Year's also!.

And somewhere in the middle of all those unfortunate odds, we also now have Maplins now heading south as well?.

And some Year's back Marks and Spencers ALMOST went under after 125 Year's (it was one of the fortunate one's that had someone that was prepared to bail them out, otherwise ...

The above 'others' though weren't as fortunate though, were they?.

And who's also next you ask perhaps? (your guess is quite literally as good as mine ... )

So who really knows basically?.

What's wrong with currys?



Nothing, it was a comparative analysis as per some of the above/previous comments from before ...

That's all.

Obviously no one is wishing ill on these Electrical Industries, etc.

But, simply put, none of us really knows what befalls any of us come tomorrow?.

THIS x100.

I bought a 4k TV from them at Christmas, I took it home and it was smashed. Box was immaculate and so it must have happened before being packaged. I took it straight back to Currys and they repeatedly refused to refund me my money, saying the damage must have happened in transit. I asked them to show me the damage to the box that must have happened to cause such catastrophic damage and they couldn't. I am big enough to admit if it was I who was stupid enough to of caused it but it wasn't.

They refused to meet the trading law, saying their own processes wouldn't allow me to return the TV. They sold broken/faulty goods and flat out wouldn't refund - they had been told by their bosses not to. Only because I refused to leave did another guy (not the manager,despite repeated calls he wouldn't come over) get fed up enough with me that he refunded my money.

To not understand Currys hate just shows that the person obviously just hasn't shopped there enough to find out. I for one will never buy from those criminals again.

Years ago my brother bought a PC from there, it didn't work from day 1. He took it back, they made him wait about 3 hours while they tried to work out what was wrong with it before finally giving up and giving him a refund. My brother uses a walking stick.

I had a problem with a camera and they wouldn't refund it after me buying it 30 minutes earlier as I might have used it for an occasion, in 30 minutes.

There are similar stories out there.

Incidentally for buying PC parts I've always used Scan. On the rare occasions there have been issues, even when they were my fault, Scan have bent over backwards to help

They did that to me too, sort of. I reserved 2 hard drives, they went to the back of the store to get it, came out empty, then they went out into the store itself to get it. Luckily it was in stock but the reservation itself was worthless
They are also famous (or infamous) for selling used goods as new. When our daughter's boyfriend returned a faulty external drive to them in January, the guy at the returns counter called out to his colleague in the back: "Ethan, that external drive has been returned AGAIN!"
Note as this is a desktop device will also need to be plugged to the mains, so powering solely via USB is not an option Therefore anyone looking at using this with a PS4 / XO may want to look at a portable option.
