60Gig 5400 RPM bought at almost a third of the price!
I bought a 60gigabyte harddrive at almost a third of the price from PCworld!
£250 down to £90!
This is amazing!
Do any of you found such a deal?
If yes please reply.
why was it that cheap thought? Was it opened? Make sure you do a thorought test before it's waranty expires as it may be damaged. I don't want to spoil your great deal but usually things too good to be true aren't. Make sure it's a good drive first!!
BTW, £250 price is hardly the price for a 60GB drive. 5400rpm 60GB drives are typically £120-£150 online. I only say this to remind you to check online prices before you shop from PCWorld.
Great deal nevertheless.
That was a good price especially from PC World who are generally dearer than most.
Was it brand new you didn't say??
A couple of years ago, strangely enough at PC World, I bagged a pack of six Iomega 100mb zip discs for an incredible £29. That's still cheap now!!
OK. mabye I was a bit hasty writting that message and mabye I should give the full story?
For at least 2 years my hard drive has been at the point where I almost always need to uninstall files to make way for new ones (note: I used 'new' as opposed to 'better') but the last few months it has been worse then ever and I needed a new hard drive. With not much time to find one and a lot of files to install and process I quickly went to PCworld and looked around the hard drives. In the 'SALE' section I found 2 hard drives both equally priced. I took the faster one witch was priced £175 then we found out that it was a third off (around £90).
Where did I get £280 from then? Well later me and my friend opened the box and (we didn't get to the cosy hard drive which was covered in foam) we found a lable with £280 written on it.
So that is my story. Thank you Os (can't remember your full name because I am on the reply screen) for your contribution and fears and I will for future updates not be so hasty and go to my local PCworld.
