Had a quick look around the net yesterday, the cheapest was Dabs at 76 iirc, but the average price was around the 90+ level.

I was gonna buy one a few weeks back when they were 92 even on ebuyer, but when I noticed they had dropped to this price, it had to be bought lol.

I looked for a 320GB drive but the biggest they seem to do in PATA is 250GB, the only 320's I can find anywhere are SATA and like 100+ lol.

And the Hitachi 500's dont fit in 95% of laptops haha!

So all in all im really pleased, maybe this will get me through another few month's, I have a 120 in there atm and it has less then 2GB left now, keep havin to do regular clean up's on it to keep it running.

Yeah, its a pretty stupid price for a laptop hard drive. I dunno how ebuyer are doing it so cheap tbh, it makes you wonder what the markup must be on the same drive from other suppliers, because obviously ebuyer are making a profit on it.

Plus, I chose the free delivery option, so not only was it so cheap, but it is being delivered tomorrow and cost nothing extra, even better.

Heh, recieved it today, first thing this morning, pretty good for free delivery, 232GB, faster and quiter than my old drive. Just hope its reliable as ive not had the best of luck with laptop drives over the past couple of years.

Got me old one running in the caddy is as sweet as a dream, very fast, dual USB connectors to ensure maximum host power is a nice little bonus.

Aint partitioned it yet as you can see... going to do so later hehe.

smile
