Good Value SATA Hard Drive Required

4 replies
Found 21st Feb 2007
Hi guys,

A hard drive in a friend's PC has just failed, so I'm after a replacement.

I'm after something that's good value more than anything, a decent brand is a must though, also if the site in questions offers cashback and quick delivery that'd be a huge bonus, and if the site in question sells uber cheap mice and keyboards then that'd be ace too. Thanks


I generally buy from Scan (]scan.co.uk), as I am one of the lucky ones who gets lifetime free delivery. They usually have hard disks in the 'Today only' section - e.g. they're doing a 200Gb Seagate drive for £43.77 + delivery today (21/2/07). Delivery is usually 3 days, and they also sell mice and keyboards. Others to consider are Dabs (]dabs.com), misco ([url]www.misco.co.uk)[/url].

You really need to state a budget and HDD capacity so members can help you identify the best deals...my advice , as usual, is to go for a samsung..quiet and the most reliable I have owned...look on ]microdirect.co.uk
3% quidco cashback.

Cheers for the replies guys, I'm looking for a SATA hard drive for £35-£40 really, found a nice Samsung 160GB for that price and I too get free delivery which is ace, was going to order it but I'm after a mouse and keyboard too.

I was looking at a Microsoft Comfort Curve which seems absolutely spot on, I found one on Scan too in a bundle with a Microsoft mouse for like £15 which is a great bargain since I'm after a new mouse too, just a cheap one, but it's out of stock and I can't find it reasonably priced anywhere, it's bloody annoying.

Trying to get a cheap SATA HDD/Mouse/Keyboard and it seems whever I look it has two of the three for good prices but the other really expensive, buh. WHY ARE ALL MOUSE AND KEYBOARD BUNDLES EITHER RUBBISH OR WIRELESS?

That is indeed the one, many thanks! Shame there's no suitable hard drives on there though, the 160GB ones from £35-£40 are all out of stock I do hate to sound fussy or whatever, but that's the price I told her it'd be for a new one
