Attention road warriors - cheap hard drives
« on: January 27, 2010, 08:06:47 AM »
If you get out and about then you may be interested in tough hard drives.  Lacie Rugged is the industry standard.  But they are pricey.

But there are alternatives.

TODAY ONLY you can get a shockproof, waterproof 320GB A-Data drive for £53.

USB only and only waterproof when NOT in use but reviews look good.

Maplins are distributors for those I believe.  A fair bit more expensive though by the looks of it.  ;)

Prefer the 500gb capacity as well - but that price!  :-\

Yeah you had to be quick.  I wasn't.

Actually Maplin may be cheaper if you have one local and so don't have to pay carriage.  There are Maplin discount vouchers everywhere.
