Examples:The opening statement of "Pay once and backup all your files for life!" is clearly misleading as it includes the word "all" which would only apply to an unlimited storage option.It is convention (requirement?) on HUKD to quote the actual price to be paid inc VAT, in this case it is £23.99 not £19.99 as currently stated.Most people's initial perception of 1TB storage is not unreasonably 1TB, not the quasi 1TB that the merchant splits into 500GB of one type of storage and another 500GB of some other type of storage, where the different types do not immediately appear to be explained for the uninformed.The merchant's definition of "lifetime" may not be the same as the customer's reasonable expectation of "lifetime".Regardless, I voted hot but would have preferred a "warm" option.




I think you are nit-picking. Ok so you won't be able to store "all" of your files. I have removed that statement (it was a quote from Zoolz).

I have included VAT.

I explained the two different types of storage in the original post.

I agree that "Lifetime" is meaningless. I removed that statement but once again it is coming from zoolz.

No storage in the cloud is "lifetime" but anyone looking to use this type of storage should be aware that one day the service will expire. On the other hand, using hard-drives for backup also has a limited life.

Having said all of that, the deal should be weighed up against other similar deals (all will claim "lifetime" storage or not mention it at all). Si there a cheaper way to get a total of 1TB storage in the cloud?

I'm not here to explain the pros and cons of cloud storage. This is a deal site and the only real criteria that should be used is "can this deal or a very similar deal be bought cheaper elsewhere".

If you don't like it then that's fine. The purpose for posting is that IF a person is interested in this type of product then is this deal a good one or can anyone find a better deal. I notice that nobody posted a cheaper price or better deal which is frustrating. Instead most posts are about why the concept of the product is not a good idea. That leads to people only posting "popular" deals as they know that niche ones will be voted down.For me the great thing about HotUKDeals is that I can use it to find the best deal for a product but that's hard when people downvote just because they wouldn't buy this type of product.I'd suggest that if this isn't your type of thing then don't vote or else try to be objective and pretend that if you were interested then is this a good price.

So often on UKHD most comments are personal (and often uninformed or incorrect) opinions of that particular product or service. As you say, the heat should be added or removed based on the value of the deal for that product, whatever it is, and weather you'd ever buy it or not. Heat added from me because the fact is that £24 is a bargain for 1Tb of secured offsite storage, even if it only lasted for 6 months, let alone a lifetime!




Compared to other similar online storage, the price appears to be very good. Now whether anyone wants to use it or not is their decision but voting cold just because somebody doesn't like the product is not what this site is for.

Does this work in he same way as Dropbox?


Kind of. Dropbox is good for syncing files across multiple machines as well as backing up. This has a client running on your machine to auto backup but don't think it syncs. Also 500gb is instant access backups (like Dropbox) and another 500 cold storage (takes hours to restore).

OK you convinced me.Heated

Thanks OP for that... just "subscribed" to the service...
