    Can you get it just under 2KG? If so, nobody can beat Royal Mails prices for Overseas.
    If not, I'll need the size in CM's and weight.

    cant find out weight as i do not have scale but they sent me the same hard drive and all i done was put in my old one. i used there packaging and everything and the one they sent is 1.9kg. i think it still is 1.9kg coz i didnt add anything extra in the box.
    the box says this as dimensions:
    13 15/16 x 7 3/4 x 5 5/16

    1.9KG is good.

    i got a quote for 16 pounds which seems ok but i would rather pay extra 2pounds and do it through royal mail as there is a post office right next to me.

    I was just thinking about that. Are they going to refund your postage?
    To be safe, I would. I've never had an ISF item go walkies but you never know.

    there not going to refund me anything. what i done is told them to send me a replacement drive and when i recieve there i send mine so they pay there postage and i pay mine. just incase anything happens i will insure it for a few quid more.
