Wanted: External Hard Drive (not too big + cheap)

8 replies
Found 13th Jan 2008
Looking for an external hard for my sister if anyone can help?

Ideally around 160 - 250GB
Not needed to heavy use

She was hoping to pick one up in store somewhere but all she can find is 500GB for £70+ and does not need that much space, nor did she want to spend that much. I have hunted about but seem to be running out of idea.

Any links greatly appreciated cheers

Tricky isn't it?

I guess if that one is £60 then she might as well pay a little extra and get 500GB to get value for money.

it is tricky if you want to pick up in store, that limits your options, if you dont mind waiting 5 days for delivery, ebuyer do 320gb for £47.99 with free super saver delivery:

I was going to say just the same... done it myself, and works a treat... I was recommended the brand 'Icy Box' which is great... except it has blue leds all over it... and since I sleep in the room with my pc (not in my bed, but close!), it can get rather irritating!

Make sure you buy compatible kit if you do it this way (I think its either SATA or IDE)

I maybe a little late but i bought one of these on Tuesday and it came today. I chose the free delivery option.
