next cheapest was 57.23 on ebuyer but that also has delivery charges

the price is even cheaper then ebay prices which start at £55 including delivery but are all from various other countries

before buying check if your laptop is IDE/EIDE/PATA interface as it be one of the SATA interfaces.


delivery at ebuyer is free

Before people ask, this will not work in a PS3.

This is the largest size PATA/IDE drive there is for notebooks. I don't think anyone ever brought out a 320GB or larger in this format.

Will pick this up when it hits £40 or thereabouts for an older laptop of mine.

Could you put the price and retailer in the title please.
