All Verbatim Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
Thanks for the valuable information pal. I appreciate it.
It's now showing as: £24.75 (£25.99 You save £1.24) Availability: In stock.
anyone know what the real write speed is on this pen drive? on amazon some reviews are reporting write speeds of 25mb/s, which is okayish https://www.amazon.co.uk/Verbatim-49319-128GB-StorenGo-Pinstripe/dp/B01DWNMFM2
They've been around pretty much since the birth of computers, they were pretty much the standard in blank CD/DVD media so I'm surprised you haven't heard them. It's worth nothing though (like the vast majority of USB brands) they don't manufacture their own memory, only 5/6 companies can manufacture at that scale and in Verbatim case they generally use Toshiba NAND in their products. When worrying about reliability especially in electronic products, research whats in them rather than the name on the box. A lot of people make the mistake oh well brand A is better than brand B because of the name on the box. A lot of websites specialises in doing teardowns (so just google the product name) and they will tell you exactly what's in them.
Never heard of Verbatim or MyMemory , not been on here have you , only joking decent price and Company fine
It states "Usually dispatched within 2 to 5 weeks" I'll pass on this!!
Just got mine. Damn they're slow. 27MB read, 25MB write. Glad I only got one. I suppose it's good for the price. Hopefully it's able to do quickish Windows re-installations.
still £6.99, I just ordered one.
Haha. I Remember those floppies in junior school. Can't remember the brand. I also remember all that programming the turtle to move about. (y) although that teacher did say one day we will all be ordering food from computers.
Well, I can remember 5.25 inch "Verb" floppies which we used in BBC micros. Apparently, each floppy held a staggering 360KB! ;)
I Remember verbatim CDR's. They were great, you could overburn the hell out of them.
i remember my first USB drive was 32Mb 2005
Just another benefit of Brexit ;)
Thanks .... Just purchased , heat added
how is it better?
What makes it better?
Any idea if this one can be booted from? Not all USB sticks seem to support booting and it's a nightmare trying to work this out before buying one.
GET5OFF code no longer being accepted
I took delivery of this last week. I have used Ebuyer for years they are fantastic but delivery on this did take a while. About the product. If you are on Windows 10 and need to rely on the instructions === don't buy it. The instructions did not work no matter which way I tried and I'm very pc literate. If you do not need to rely on the instructions then the hardware is fine, its a nice little HDD that does what it says on the tin at a good price. Yes the USB cable is short but still usable and a USB extension cable is not a problem. It comes FAT32 formatted which will not allow you to make a disc image but if you are confident re format to NTFS and off you go.
Fair play to that. :-)
Hahahahahahahahaha, what of it?. I remember a few Year's ago buying a 500gb Portable Hard Drive from here: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/discountedclearancediscontinued-seagate-expansion-portable-drive-500gb-for-only-1450-at-sainsburys-2403869 And that one wasn't that long ago either?. These still do exist somewhere ... lol.
I'm well aware of all that. but I'm sure someone who wasn't, might find it useful. however, none of that makes this deal "cheap" in my opinion.
Is this encrypted
No I'm really short
Haha, same here!
Bit small.... your legs would hang off the end... (lol)
When I saw the picture I thought it was an inflatable mattress.
Now with Free delivery.
... unless you have a flux capacitor in your DeLorean
And let's not talk about the month before.
Could this be plugged Into a Samsung TV to enable the record function?
Anyone know if it's a sata drive in a box or soldered?
this is back in stock couple of amazon reviews saying write speeds much lower than class 10 though edit: looking around there dont seem to be many decent reviews - main ones that are positive and report speeds dont get much over the 10MB/s which is a bit poor especially being uhs compatible
OOS Now :(
Out of stock now, was looking for one for the Switch.
It will be fine if you're recording 720p / 1080p HD video on an actioncam or dashcam. If you're shooting 4K video you'll need a faster card.
I assume it's a similar thing, but are these any good for action cams?
Reduced shelf also has blank cds £1 for 25 verbatim and speke Liverpool store
Where this in the general discount shelf or marked down within the electricals section. What store was this at please?
No idea why this is going cold. Yes I don't use them anymore, I use blu-ray for most things nowadays, but for £1.60 for 25 discs and verbatim no less is a great deal.
Its not about if people do or don't use them anymore its a deal site finding the cheapest around and I don't think you will get cheaper then £1.60 for 25 blank dvds so carry on voting cold 🌡
What is this "DVD" you speak off? is this something from a bygone era?
Like I said, useful in certain situations. But for most people they will use them to transfer media onto to view on another device or other situations where a USB 3.0 drive would be much more suitable. Anyway, just giving an opinion, enjoy your purchase.
I'm going to use it as a backup (of another backup) and yes it'll be idle most of it's time but can be really helpful one day. The files will copy onto the USB in the background, not like I'll be sitting there patiently waiting (lol)
I actually don't mind still using USB2 but these are utter utter shite. Avoid.
Who gave this heat? USB 2 is terrible.
No, that doesn't make sense since you can buy USB 3.0 drives for around £10 for 32GB drive. And is so much faster to transfer, especially for bigger files... and also USB is backwards compatible, so they still work in USB 2.0 devices anyway. The whole point of having USB drives is for transferring data, so maybe faster drives are more handy for people so they don't have to sit around waiting for it to complete. Especially if you use them a lot. Now back to my other point, if you only want to put something on USB once and then read from it a lot,THEN a USB 2 drive MIGHT be OK to use, for instance a USB installation drive for windows/linux that you want to keep handy just in case. But personally I keep the ISO files on my NAS and so can access those anytime anyway, so don't feel the need to keep USB drives sitting idle and not used for 99% of it's lifetime... so USB 3.0 makes more sense as you can transfer the data faster to the drive and they also usually read a lot faster too, so installation for example don't take as long. Yes you get double the capacity with this USB drive, but sacrifice speed. I'm not saying it's not a good deal for some people, I just can't fathom a situation where someone would rather wait around for 30-60 mins or whatever to transfer that data, when it could be done in 5-10 mins easily... depending on the data and size of the files of course.
It is for a 1tb but you can get 2tb for not much more and 4 tb for around £110. So there is better value to be had elsewhere.
£45 for 1TB isn't a deal
Yea can I ask why it's getting cold voted I was tempted to pull the trigger on this but I'm having second thoughts now
Negative votes seem a bit harsh; 2 year warranty and free next day delivery.
Totally agree, M302 is untouchable for performance / storage at this price range. I have several which are used in a MS Surface Book - Read @ 90mbs Write @ 40mbs all day long!
That is the minimum guaranteed write speed i.e (class 10) :)
Can anyone please recommend a fast card reader to get the best speeds with micro's to pc?
Toshiba Exceria M302 64 GB faster and slightly cheaper.
Same price on Amazon too (the description of both states it transfers up to speeds of 104mb/s so is the title wrong, or the description?
LOL @ "swivel"
Now you mention it remember seeing them too, just bigger than I needed, about £9.70 for 64gb off the top of my head.
Also 64gb and 128GB. Maybe about £15 for the 128GB. Plenty in Kidderminster
These are still going in tesco, £12-50 for usb 3 version if you can find stock. port solent portsmouth , had the 64gb at £7-50 still stock of those left, the 128gb card was on the shelf at £12-50 sold out now. Did pick one 128gb up at fareham tesco £12-50.
Just got the last one on the rack at Tesco Helston. So still the odd one around. Good deal I think. £25 is the cheapest elsewhere.
lots in Colchester highwoods. got one to load up with movies and emulator roms for my £19 emtec gem android console! thanks HUKD!
Is national as in my local as well - not bad for money and 9 pounds cheaper than anywhere else.
Managed to get the last one in tesco Inshes for this price so definitely not store specific, thanks for posting - was needing a large USB stick to do some experimenting with
if there will be EMP attack only this can protect your data, all hard drives , pen drives etc will vanish but who need any of pictures and movies from holiday when there won't be clean water to drink ehhhhhhhh
DVD recordable Discs WWHHOOOOO
In Keighley there were only Polaroid-branded disks. A minion said they had sold the last of the non-polaroid ones weeks ago. The Keighley branch is being refurbished and otherwise cover-up which doesn't help the bargain hunting.
these were in Coryton, Cardiff, Caerphilly was all sold out. I went Looking for the cheap Hard Drives but was obviously beaten by everyone else coz I left it too late really all that was left were the £81 2TB Toshibas! Nobody had reported these I saw them a few days ago and today still all on the shelf, but Im not sure if thats because people dont use them as much or because no-one had reported them on sale! I took all the DVD-Rs but left the 3 DVD+Rs
none in asda middle brook
I don't have a BluRay recorder yet don't think the price of disc is cheap enough yet, lol. I mainly use them for 1080p 4gb h.264 BluRay rips, make my dvd drive visable on my plex network or use them in ps3. much cheaper. hope they get h.265 to be compatible with plex that would be better. I do have about 30TB+ of hard drives but I'd like to get stuff off that's not used so often.
Yes - I forgot - the only recent DVD I burnt was a Windows 10 Anniversary OS disc for a machine that refused to boot from a USB stick. Probably the only use left for a recordable DVD is for problematic OS installs - everything else has been overtaken by new technology.
Aka UHD120. :-) Neither lasted 5 minutes unfortunately ... (much like those Mini Disc's that came soon after them too?).
no torrents ?? theres loads ;)
for a moment i thought it's canned tomatoes! :) Good price op.
4 and a half hours to fill at that minimum speed... ouch
