Any of the other very laptops look like decent deals? There's a medion erazer for £900 with the £100 off


I have a acer swift 3 i5 8250u 8gb ram mx150, it runs fallout 4, xcom 2, frosting, world of warcraft great, the 7th gen quad core cpu and 8gb is more than capable to run games. It's a good deal but certainly not a gaming laptop. Battery life only 4 hours so it's a entry level desktop cement that can run games. Cashbook from very work OK too. Had a 55 inch TV from very during world cup. They apply the credit to you account after 4-6 weeks bring the amount you owe down by 100 quid. Never had any trouble with very, via online chat or phone.

Although 16gb is preferable, 8gb isn't that shabby.


Only 8 gb :-(

Seems to be the cheapest price around for a 4TB portable drive - beating the the Seagate at 89.99 which has been the cheapest for a while

Nice one


The 3TB one is on at £58.97 though which seems a cracking price!


Seems so

Sorry for the basic question but when using this to expand Xbox One's memory. Does it work seamlessly once plugged in or how can a redirect my downloads etc to the removable hard drive?


It looks like they're only offering the Black one at £94.99 which is the same as what Amazon are charging (although they're out of stock until next week). I really want the red one, but no one seems to stock it when the price reduces to sub £100. Amazon are selling the blue one for £97.99 but I'd prefer a lighter colour. Shame Curry's aren't selling all colours at this price.


You'll need the extra space to back up all the spam and phishing emails you get once they've let someone hack your details. (mad)


2 year warranty though.


Same price @ Amazon too for the Black/Orange. Otherwise the colours are more expensive. Sorry to divert the thread, but isn't this of a better spec at a slightly cheaper price? https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00TKFEEAS/ref=psdc_430544031_t1_B01LQQHI8I

External be to thick to stick in the console


I think it's expired. Oh well... I never did get around to ordering it as I was busy looking up specs and feeding my face. Here's hoping another offer comes around with a better colour. I like the red one.


Does this fit inside the PS4 pro or external only?


Shame there's no other colours available at the price. Also it states data transfer rate is 1MB per second which is obviously a typo. Strangely it doesn't even appear on Ad's website. At this price it puts it on par with what our American cousins are paying. Wouldn't mind a different colour though... I'm getting a bit sick of the usual black and grey devices in my room. Heat added though. Will probably purchase.


Bought this for £100 from Maplin a few months ago, great product and a great price. HEAT

They come with ST8000DM004 drives now some form of magnetic writing.


Where do you get failure rates of Lacie ranked with brands ?


Is it.......


I was consider getting them to shuck (and even seeing if it's possible as there is a clampdown in manufacturers that solder the drives up differently) for a NAS but reading into it, it looks like the drives inside are Seagate ST8000AS000 https://www.storagereview.com/seagate_archive_hdd_review_8tb which are not recommended. It's an old end of life drive. More info https://www.lacie.com/www-content/datasheets/pdfs/porsche-design-desktopDS1865-4-1802US-en_GB.pdf Still, great price for an external if you need to backup files.


It looks nice but if you want a reliable HDD that has a lower failure rate down you can find better brands.

have you tried claiming warranty from one of these? assuming you paid for shipping?




Sorry to be a bugger, but, this is a chinese brand, sold/sent from china... they can provide 100 year warranty, and it wont mean a thing... Lets assume they wanna honour warranty, 1st, you will be required to send item back and ensure it is tracked, check how much that is gonna cost you back and forth (assume back to you is on them, u still pay some good money to send to china tracked)? 2nd, assume your package never arrives to where it should, or they may just say it is lost? how will you prove? they ll just claim it wasnt them signed... 3rd it will need to be insured for this purpose, and your drive will have cost you a lot more, and not to mention hassle and time dealing with chinese! if these are a good deal cheaper than market prices, i guarantee you they made shortcuts! and it will not be pleasant for you... just saying from my experience...


"The Kingspec will roast at idle, not just when working hard." I see you are just pulling claims out of thin air, so I guess we are done here. But I could also mention of how your link with "bad" amazon reviews is mainly "Windows won't detect it!" Well I am 99% sure most of them will have not formatted the drive, its unfortunately very common when selling storage. But hey lets just agree to disagree.


I'm not sure what a 4 year old video showing a 100GB transfer has to do with any of this. The Kingspec will roast at idle, not just when working hard. I've got a Samsung 970 Pro, so yes I do =) It peaks at around 50-60c, comes with a 5 year warranty that Samsung will actually honour, actually manages to meet their advertised speeds, has good customer support and I managed to buy it from Amazon. On the other hand you've got Kingspec who say it's 3 years yet won't reply to any customer emails. I'm not sure why people will fight to the death for Chinese tat, but by all means, spend away. I'd advise not relying on it or putting anything important on it, but it's your choice so hey ho. Enjoy your SSD.

True. Too bad I can't monetise those naughty pictures. (embarrassed) Read recently that Google let third parties read your emails ... that is disgusting! So I had to get a domain name & set up email server. Money I didn't want to spend.


That's ok too but then they have the full right to go through all your data & laugh/publish all the naughty pics of you & your girlfriend in your knickers. You lose your privacy rights!


WD only released its hybrid drives in 2013 so only 5 years ago. But I get your point. The first gen Momentus XT drives did have a few issues and there were several firmware updates for it (which many users didn't do). So many early drives did have problems, but that is to be expected with early adopters. My 8 year old drive still works fine. Performance has moved on somewhat in that time.


Well then that's unfortunate. Although this is a consumer drive. Happy with mine. Won't lose any sleep if the games on it go kapoot. Easy enough to get back. You'll see differently once you learn the hard way.


I’ve never understood this back up back up. Nothing and nobody lasts forever!

If you value your data then you need to back up to 2 drives. The easiest to use will be a NAS unit like the WD my book duo which has 2 NAS (server) drives inside and can be configured easily to act as a 2 drive mirrored array to backup automatically - or you can just get two reliable hard drives used by servers solutions providers, like 2 HGST or toshiba drives and keep one to back up your data (if you want cheaper options then use server drives like WD reds, but any server drives would do. They cost more by you gain massively in reliability. The consumer Seagate and WD drives have high failure rates high enough to make them unsafe to use for irreplaceable data like photos. Most of my failed drives have got blown capacitors. That is what you get from cheap home consumer drives - cheap components which will fail and you have no cheap means of getting your data back. Once they go you are stuffed and no amount of trickery will help you.


Any good recommendation please...thanks


It comes across as a good all rounder.


No it is not any good. If you want this for backup get something more reliable. This is a home user device with their most basic hard drive inside. Its fine if you don't mind losing whatever you have on it.


Remember to have a good back up plan. The conventional wisdom by tech experts on backups is known as the 3-2-1 method. Basically you want: 3 copies of any data you don't want to lose 2 different mediums it's stored on (so 2 different drives in your computer, for example) 1 copy kept offsite, to prevent against disaster.

I need a nas drive but all these great deals keep coming up on harddrives


I blame WD. They don't know how to market their own products. Personally I'd go for the external 2.5" 4TB to save money however if you want to use for internal or external get an internal 2.5" hard drive. Seagate 2.5" external hard drive on the other hand can be opened up and used as internal but you void warranty that is if you need to use it as a internal hard drive in future for maybe a PC/NUC build. With WD external 4TB 2.5" hard drive you can't as they have the SATA area soldered with a custom design. People make out WD to be better than Seagate. This is the way I see it.... look at the amount of RECERTIFIED WD drives on sale; https://www.wdc.com/en-gb/products/wd-recertified.html compared to Seagate RECERTIFIED. Seagate hardly sell any refurbished products. Clearly shows WD drives have failed before but they fix them and sell as RECERTIFIED.


The white and gold one is £99! The white and black is still £89.


How VERY INTERESTING, alllllll that!. Never considered these hard drive foiballs like that?. Those day's of BIOS 'limitations' on internal hard drive capacity size would have done now I would have thought? - to have then seen the necessity for the exact same manufacturer to have made 2 very different capacity 2.5 inch hard drive's, for (arguably) essentially the exact same thing?!. Whereas another manufacturer has no qualms whatsoever in selling us alllllll, the exact same 'like for like' across the board?! (irrespective of what our usage scenario's may be ... ) Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, funny how that works out that? (be that in principle, and/or in jest?), lol. On a similar note to the Seagate internal hard drive link you provided above for almost £120 odd ... Wouldn't it be rather wayyyyyy more cost effective to just buy say, an external 2.5 inch Lacie Porsche Design 4TB , an external 2.5 inch Maxtor3 4TB, or an external 2.5 inch Seagate 4TB instead? - at well under £100 each a pop?. (As opposed to an internal only 4TB 2.5 inch hard drive, pushing the £120 mark instead? - and for arguably the exact same thing ... )


For a tenner MORE though, you can get this one instead, perhaps?, for Dagenham: http://www.argos.co.uk/product/7982042 Order now, collect right away at Dagenham Merrielands RP Argos (There's probably others elsewhere for the same too?, but I only localised it to a certain geographic location in East London). Hope that helps?. :-)

When you put it like that (y) :D


Looks neater mainly - one less box gathering dust and I don't think there is a USB port on the rear of the PS4 so it would also be one less port available and extra leads at the front, getting in the way. I build PCs so have no issues with cracking open a case if I have to but can appreciate that others wouldn't want the hassle (y)


As a heads up just before we start going any further, in order to actually use an external hard drive with your PS4 console, you’ll need to have downloaded and installed the latest PS4 firmware (the first version to enable external hard drives was 4.50). Once you’re updated to firmware 4.50 or above, your PS4 will be able to support USB 3.0 external hard drives of up to 8TB in size, which is a massive improvement on the default 500GB that comes with the majority of PS4 consoles. With all things considered, if you have a PS4 connected to the internet by now, you will almost definitely have a firmware above this by now, but it’s always worth checking.


From what I know there was an update to enable the use of external storage on the ps4


Can you just plug one in now?
