Saw this on rollback at my local ASDA (Hatfield) and managed to get one, thought I might share it as my first deal here, might be available at others too. Apologies if there are any issues with the post

Also, oddly enough the 1TB version is on rollback for £39 which is more expensive

Just paid £60 for one from Amazon
Can see these really coming down now with the prices of the SSD's coming down as they are a real advantage in laptops using less power and the weight.

Still hot for the size to price though.
None in mine.

in store only by the looks of it

OP .. I'm assuming these are Portable External Drives?, as opposed to Desktop External Drives right?

As per the OP: "Saw this on rollback at my local ASDA (Hatfield)" (in-Store offer). :-)
OP .. your current Deal reminds me a little bit of this previous (but since/now expired) Deal here too:

WD 2TB Berry My Passport Ultra Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBBKD0020BBY-EESN Fulfilled by Amazon £49.59

Little chance of that happening as the HD technology+manufacturing has changed little for over a decade and has been running at maximum capacity for some time since the Thailand disaster.

Got one. Label on shelf said £72 still. But a price check showed it as £38.
Ahhh this is what I've been looking for, heatttt!! I don't know whether to call stores or just start hunting, there's probably no chance of finding one though
Very rarely find these Asda deals. Very store specific (or very limited at least).
None in Coventry, Walsgrave.
Picked one up from Wigan Robin Park at lunch today. None on the shelves but have 3 of the 2tb drives in the stock room so just ask. Heat added.
Can confirm I tried to get one in Harrogate last night but although there was a hanging thing to take to the till there was none left, so they let me have the Seagate backup plus slim for the same price. I got the last Seagate, so no point in trying Harrogate. The rest are about £39-£42 for a 1Tb which I think is pretty standard. There's no desktops just portables.

Wow the seagate contains a Samsung Spinpoint SATA drive so you got a hell of a deal!

200gb onedrive for 2 years as well. Thought about using it in my laptop but my 1tb is a hybrid so I think I'll stick with it.
Thanks. Managed to grab a couple in Hyde near Manchester, last two maybe. Had to ask though, only had Seagate on display. Plenty of WD 1tb left.

Weird how they don't put them on the shelf. Keeping them for workers only?
Is this a portable one? (2.5" drive inside?), if so would it be suitable to use to replace the HD in a PS4?

Yes it's the smaller 2.5 external. Don't know about opening it up to fit into a PS4 though.

edit: measurements of outer case so others can get a grasp, it's 8cm x 11cm x 2cm compact style external with short USB 3 cable

​you can buy if u want
For 2tb it's a cracking price, but only 5400rpm
I thought the idea behind "Asda Rollback" was that the price of something was rolled back to a time many moons ago, when the price of it was lower. But if that's true then shouldn't the price of this have gone up instead of down??
