All PS4 Slim Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
Where do you get failure rates of Lacie ranked with brands ?
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.
Price has just gone up to 97.57 (shock) :/
Bought 3, 3 died hard and early. Read the other threads, disastrous quality control. Wouldn't touch with a barge pole.
I have an older one and of the 5 mechanical disks connected to my main PC it is the only one with smart errors; still working but I use it only for an extra backup because of the errors. I would recommend a different brand, even though it does look brilliant.
The LaCie Porsche design box has been around for about 10 years and actually looks quite good for a box. Unfortunately, it's not very good at its job as over heating is a major issue and results in hard drive failures.
Lol “Porsche” design.....a box
£12 more than last week https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/porsche-design-6tb-hdd-11998-ebuyer-2998695
Tell me about it. Have started and played for a couple of hours: The Evil Within 2 Project Cars 2 Wolfenstein 2 Hitman F1 2017 ESO Morrowind Horizon Zero Dawn - possibly 15 hours on that, amazing game Too many PS3 digital purchases in PSN sales to mention. Would still like: God of War Kingdom Come Deliverance Will probably preorder: Red Dead II If only we could be uni students forever...
They need to put a hold on releasing games so we can complete the ones we've got instead of keep buying new ones (:I (y)
Great price but i still not played the last big expansion released, to many games out need more hours in the day.
£16.85 on xbox one
Glad I'm not the only one
What if it turns into Fal'Cie
So this is more like a Peugeot.
Likely to be a SHR (Shingled Head Recording) Seagate hard drive inside, doubt it is PMR. Larger 6TB was £119.99 last week, as an indication of price.
We support the 1TB versions and above for a customer in France. Very high failure rate on these.. Guess these ARE great for the industry though.. more failures mean more work or sales.. (y)
Avoid LaCie gear at all costs. They look great and often offer good features, but they’re let down by terrible PSUs. Cheap design means the capacitors dry out in them and they die long before the HDD. The PSUs are also sealed units, so pretty much impossible to repair 👎🏻
Great game and one of the only a few that I keep going back too. It’s easy to play for just ten minutes, or ten hours!
Got second last, oos now. Thanks for that!
It was like it was meant to be... (angel) Just nabbed the last one (highfive)
Fantastic game, and you're not missing a huge amount between this and the eternal collection. (just a new class which you can still buy separately if you want)
Thanks,arrived next day :)
Decent deal, i'm not quite ready to bite at that price
Under the buy button on the ShopTo page for this deal, there's some green text that says "CREATE YOUR BUNDLE". Click that and then you can go on to add Hidden Agenda for free, God of War for £29.86 and Infamous and Bloodborne for £13.85 each, totalling £277.41.
I’ll bite on a PS4 at £150
Can't believe I can't find it for the Xbox, it's an absolute bargain ;(
I knew what you meant (y)
I meant this deal lol
I think he means the bundle
I was thinking that it wasn't made for the Xbox as I couldn't find it (y)
All out of stock now
I've had a few recertified drives from here and been using them for about 8 months so far with no issues.
I have 3 in daily use over a year. No issues with them. My last WD was powered up 5 years continuously before it got a smart error.
Some would say yes and some would say no. The way I look at it is any drive could fail at any time whether it be recertified or new
Brand new sealed 1tb for £50 or a recertfied 2tb for £45 https://www.wdc.com/en-gb/products/wd-recertified/my-passport-for-mac.html#RWDBCGL0020BSL-EESN Is the recertificied stuff reliable?
What's the main difference between the newer edition and old? Amazon is full of backlash against new ones.
I bought the 4tb from there for £59.99 recently... Maybe worth holiding out for the extra fiver.
Yeah I see now. Just thought it was a bit strange
It was taken directly from their site
AHH ok (y) Thanks for fixing the title
Brownie points to you for all the effort there (highfive) (y)
May invest, I kind of like the look of it. Still want a game like phantom crash.

From what I've seen of the video I think it actually looks quite good. My type of game running round shooting things till you can't shoot no more 8)
The big mainstream reviewers (IGN, Gamespot etc) are yet to do a video review. Hopefully we get one by ACG :).
This isn't the network version is it?
Still in stock!!! (y)
I meant it was slow reading and loading content and always turned itself off
I can argue with that, plugged in to my USB 3.1 port copying from ssd with 130MB/s not mbps! Just got it today, don't think that's slow for a usb hdd
Need some storage, just looking at this and also the WD Elements SE portable drive (2TB, £47.49). Are the larger "My Book" style drives, with their own power supplies, generally more reliable and longer lasting than smaller portable drives? I'm guessing they are. Also any idea what the SE stands for in the "WD Elements SE" drive? Thanks.
Cold sorry, Got a Slim with CoD WWII, GT Sport & Hidden Agenda for £199 all brand new and that was at GAME months ago.
Just by checking this site at the right time
How did you manage that?
Tesco glitch and then even better got a free pro from Currys with their glitch and Xbox one for 50 quid. Last year was a good year
Anyone know any good deals on ps4 I'm after one for kids?
If you can wait till Black Friday then wait, to be fair, this console should be £200 on average now, it’s the usual over inflation with an impending discount coming very soon.
LOL this is one of the cheapest prices. Here we like very good deals like this package for 199£ so it's cold. We are waiting for black Friday this year and next year to buy this at 150£. Since its a gift you cannot wait that long. this is a good deal
What price should it be I'm about to buy one for my son's birthday and don't want to over pay
It will be back down some time very soon. The console is too old to be at this price still.
this price is a joke
they have no stock anyways so they can pretty much put it as 1p
If you've got a John Lewis near you, then it's worth popping in... We recently got a 1TB PS4 Slim with Fifa 18 for £159! It was a customer return, and classed as grade B (although we cannot see a single mark on the console or any of the accessories - it was just graded B because some of the internal packaging was missing.) And best of all, it still has the 2 year warranty! ;) (I didn't post this as a deal, as it was a one-off)
It's great isn't it. You can play a handful of pirate games and that makes the old systems desirable. Sad reality.
What play pirated games....... and miss out on online features? Will pass thanks..
Last years deals lol. I payed £199.99 last year
Price has gone up to £299 cold
up to 299.99
Seems a good deal. Need one for my lads birthday but that's not till October. Is it worth waiting or will this time of year have the best deals?
:D Loved Most Wanted. It almost scratched that Burnout Pre-Paradise itch. I've just bought a PS4 - any recommendations for a good stunt crash/takedown/unlock cars/open world racing game? Until then I'll be happy with Just Cause 3
Shame none of them have 2 player offline split screen
Yeh I forget about that, that's why Bubamans Bold font is useful on these deals (y)
You can check the price history for games on psprices, super handy.
Deluxe though ;)
If you have it digitally, I don't think you can buy this pack!!
If I have the standard NFS 2016 will I be upgraded and get all the extras?
