That's a rather nice deal for 3TB
You can get 4Tb for an additional fiver (= £69.99), worth trading up to (if you have plenty'o data)

How long the drives last after you've recieved them
if it helps anyone from Northern Ireland, change the Uk in address to Ireland and order will go through. When they ship it, it will end up in Northern Ireland with the BT postcode clearly displayed on the address. i had a 20%off voucher so ended up paying £48, thanks op
sorry my trick worked on the other post earlier which brought up the cheaper euro price.

Awesome, thanks, was the voucher a one off or are there any others available still? Thanks

It all depends on the supple from Taiwan and other countries, there is never set price in things like RAM or storage that, it fluctuates a lot.

Whats crazy is I'm still running seven 2TB drives I bought in 2010 for around £50-60 each brand new.

Long as you keep em cool they run for years. I have a 1TB and 500GB from 2007-8 that have been used for about 7-8 years constant. Eventually I replaced em with bigger drives and stuck them in caddies to use as external storage for consoles. So if they die it's not a big deal. But really I think it's peoples hot PC cases that kill a lot of em. I always try keep em 25-40'C. I have a pair of 2TB Hitachi Deskstars (or death stars as people call em) running constant since about 2011-12. Not a prob. As for the drives on this thread, originally I got em both as backup drives but a lot of my stuff can be redownloaded quite easily so I only use one as a backup and stuck the other in my PC. Pretty much keep em cool and keep em on constant instead of powering up and down repeatedly, and they last years. The powered on count for one of my drives is about 12, after 6 years use.
Just bought and very timely - my dog just broke my last external HD!
Is this compatible with PS4 or xbox one - doesn't mention on the website

it was a 1 off voucher code they emailed me about 6 months ago which was supposed to have expired but still worked. i got email because I purchased before and they "missed me". if you have old code worth testing

I bet you you won't lend it to him again then !
Any good as an XB1 expansion, or does all the proprietary software get in the way?

Sorry just realised i posted the same question. Liked yours to make up for it
I brought the Recertified 4TB one last year and its still going strong, just be aware sometimes it rescans and allows all folders to be seen public, i'm a novice with these things but found i could use twonky to stop this from happening, please correct me if I'm wrong.
Maybe in a couple of years i'll replace just to back up my back ups.

Are they raided? I think raid is the kiss of death to drives in the long run.

No they're not raided. I did have one fail (out of 8 ) after 3 years, the rest seem fine.
But my main point is it just how long its taken for drives to be cheaper again!
