I know this is £2 more expensive than the hitachi one previously posted, but its still an amazing deal if you prefer the brand or look of the WD equivalent!

Simply use the same code TDX-GD55 to get £10 off at the checkout!

cool,how much does 10HD knock off?

10% ...

Where on PC World Site do you enter the code? And can it be done for collect @ store?

you can only use the code once unless you create new accounts

I bought one of these, the case is nicer than in the image on the tesco site:

It's £53.82 at PC World after you use the 10hd code.
The code is entered at the checkout stage.
I believe you may be able to get 3% topcashback too. Not sure if that coincides with the 10hd discount.

Good deal, but I need a 1Tb eSata drive . . . any thoughts?

Please note that if these are powered by a 5-pin connection then be prepared to call WD for frequent replacement power supplies. This has happened to quite a few of my clients that have the WD element USB drives (5-pin power).

Fortunately, the replacement power supplies are free and there is no limit on the warranty period of these.

Wow this is cheap for a solid state drive! Have a look at the specs!

A 1TB SSD... Priceless (literally)

Anyone know what the drive is in these?

This says USB Host powered, but also that it has a AC Adapter?

Does this mean it swings both ways?

Thanks for the info. Went for the WD Essential 1TB at PCWorld for ~£61 (after voucher + quidco) as it has a power switch on the back of the unit.

Lol typo, they put 7200rpm and SSD.
Will probably be a black cavier HDD inside.

Edit: cant put code in at the checkout
Cant see anywhere in any of the 3 stages to put it in at.

At the Review and Confirm stage, there is a "Use coupons/vouchers" button, under "2. Then pay & confirm".

Hmm, I get "Confirm Basket" after I add it to my basket, choose my local PCW then I hit go to checkout and it asked for reservation info, no-where to put in the code. Or is it because the code can only be used on online purchases?

Hmm, have also tried all 3 browsers (thought opera was acting dodgy) but no avail. Nvm, will wait for another deal to come around...

good point, i've tried currys and pcworld and there's nowhere i can find to put the code if your collecting at store, there is a box however to put in the code if ur buying online- have they changed their websites- looks like it, scammy currys/pcworld!
ps if anybody knows how to put in a code for collection only please let us know- thanks

Thought you meant Tesco as that's where the deal is listed. I ordered mine (from pcworld) for delivery, so not sure about buy in store. But delivery is free...

I'd like to get one without external power supply - I guess the name is "portable" external HDD (rather than desktop), but I think they're slower (spin 5400), more expensive, and do not have the same capacity. Am I right? Even if so, I am happy with that. Any suggestions?

Hehe my bad too - cant get it for delivery, pick-up only - The argos deal at 55 quid (effectively) seems reet too - why are they all getting rid of the Hitachi HDDs?

@akexuk: Yeah, most if not all USB only powered portable ext's are at 5400rpm cos of the 5V @ 500mA - allowing it to only use 2.5W (so good for battery, bad for performance). TBH, I think the price favours most people to go for a "non-portable" HDD as they are much cheaper per gigabyte with the only "nuisance" being the fact you have to power the HDD (unless you got one of them netbooks which have a supposed 9hr battery life and the power of a 12yr old pc). They both have their pros and cons...

Which is better for speed this one or the Hitachi from the other post :
hotukdeals.com/ite…nly

Both at 7200rpm I think (Hitachi one deffo is) so the difference will come on the amount of cache they have on them - which is never said on external HDDs. Either one is worth the punt IMO as both are well known brands (apart from the people who have crusades on anything other than WD...?)

I have one of these already and can highly recommend. I've just bought another. the first has run daily for a year great drive as far as I'm concerned

This is now back in stock for home delivery at PC World, so you can get it for £53.82 using the voucher code 10HD as stated above.

Thanks OP for the find. I ordered one, however the sly ******s have sent me a different model
amazon.co.uk/gp/…294

I have complained to the customer care. Lets see how that goes!

I had one of these. Didnt last long before the power supply went pop.

had one one these connected to my wii for about 6 months now, no problems whatsoever.
takes a while if you need to re format though!

mine was from tesco and doesnt have a 5 pin power connector, would guess they have phased those out now due to the problems

The customer care has confirmed that the drive they are selling is indeed the one that can be seen in the link above and not the one pictured on the site. They said they've got the wrong image up on the website and will be rectifying the same :oops:
