Nice spot! :thumbsup:

Should have firewire though really. Bit **** with just USB 2.0

Voted hot for the price though.

Thanks for the post Rahulg247, Welcome to HotUKDeals!

Very good deal, just a shame my western digital died and i lost everything :x

Good while it lasted but took a good 15 secs before it became responsive

Then pay the extra for Firewire? The majority of people, however, don't use it and USB 2 is more than adequate.

I came across this drive yesterday while looking for one for myself.

After reading several mixed reviews regarding external hard drives in genera I become less willing to buy this when I noticed it only had a 1 year warranty. What surprised me more is that Seagate hard drives (whether more or less reliable) had a 5 year warranty.

The only downside is that the Seagate is only 500GB (more than enough for me) and the one I'm interested in has only a 8MB cache for £79.99. There is a 500GB with 16MB cache ESATA/USB2.0 for £96.48. I just don't know how much of a difference the 8/16MB cache.

According to the WD site its 2 years if thats any use to anyone, support.wdc.com/war…asp

Its a shame, its just what I need, I think i'll hold out a bit more for a 5 year warranty drive to come down.

Great deal voted hot. Personally I think the difference between Firewire and USB 2 is marginal in comarison to eSATA which is amazingly fast!

got 2 x 500 gig ones, lover them and they look nice

nice find. ive just got the white version 500gb with firewire800 though. usb2 is the pits once you've tried the x4 speed you get with fw800! Good price for those of u who dont have/need fw800

same old arguments - seagate has a 5yr warranty (a replacement in 2 years is going to cost 25ukp!), its only usb2 not firewire (esata kills them both), can we have it in white (mac fanboys).

the cheapest internal 750gb seems to retail for about this price, so despite the moaning its not bad.

* Shengis his getting is credit card out as I type *

so is there a firewire alternative anyone would recommend?

Nice first post, thanks and welcome to HUKD's Rahulg247

This looks the cheapest 750gb

Nice one. I'm well tempted.

Ordered one

Very cheap drive - googled around but couldn't find anything relevant to this; I wonder if you can take out the drive an connect it to a computer (or xbox1).

Awesome price.

Yes I've taken the IDE drive out. For those muppets moaning about FW 400 / 800 / ESATA over USB2 (like you really use it) this spanks the pants off of anything the same size, with a £12 adapter if needed

Plus the Ebuyer IDE-SATA converter (about £5) works fine with it.

Case closed

(like you really use it)



Actually some of us do. Whatever you may think, firewire is miles more reliable than usb2 when manipulating large video files or using the external drive as a photoshop scratch pad.

Why would you take the drive out?
