drifting towards a cold vote because it is almost £6 cheaper at Scan.
drops into basket at £58.69 via ]this link (only)

will also arrive a lot quicker from Scan rather than ebuyer's 5-day super-saver free p&p qualifier.

definately cold. Was 5p cheaper 2 days ago and was only £62.26 in december when I got one. Good drive though.I am watching it and waiting for a price drop so I can buy some more to make a raid server

There's a 500GB Samsung SATA that's better/better value on eBuyer.

Would have got it from Scan but they were about £7 more, even with my free delivery.

By the way, you don't get free delivery straight away with AVForums registration.

I paid this price for this drive about 6 motnhs ago.

Fantastic drive runs extremely fast and quiet, never had any problems with it.

Should be cheaper now though.
