found the same drive cheaper here


Don't blame you for the non maxtor, I've had 5 die on me, we'll see now that Seagate has bought them if the Maxtor brand will improve on reliability.


Dabs might be cheaper but £6 delivery makes it £93.99
That ebuyer WD one is £93.99 too but free delivery.

But going via dabs = 2% quidco so is nearer £92...

I think the dabs one you found is the cheapest you'll see, and that price won;t be around for long.

thanks mate.

do you think that price wont be around long because itll go down or up ?

also the dabs one has ncq so thats a major plus from what Ive found out ??
