Fancy a 250GB HDD - for £99.99?

  Stuartli 17:46 23 Apr 2004

Just had a BigPockets e-mail newsletter offering hard drives from Nikimi (no, I've never heard of it either) at some amazing prices.

A 100GB ATA100 5400rmp model is £46 going up to a 250GB 7200rpm 8MB cache version for said £99.99.

These prices include VAT but note they are refurbished products.

Please note, all you dabs customers, that these are OEM versions...:-)

Interesting enough but I wouldn't buy a hard drive that wasn't made by a well known manufacturer and they aren't that much cheaper than a well known make.You'd save about £20. Is it worth it?

I think you may find that Nikimi are refurbished rma drives.So maybe not such a good deal

Ever the eternal pessimist....

but, I rather get two 120gb. If one get up smoke, only half staff lost or nothing lost if I use one backup another and store them on different location, but use two drives from different makers.

buy two 250's then :)

If you or anyone else ever manages to fill a 250GB drive...;-)

The whole point of this exercise was to alert people to what seems to be a very good price for a large capacity storage device - obviously the fact that BigPockets has already sold out indicates that there are people in the UK who don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

I appreciate your information, but just to want to mention a big RMA drive really is not a good idea. Small drive lost is just small lost, a huge (250GB) drive lose is really a huge lose.

As for storage space, people just keep fill it up with digital "rubbish" and useful data no matter how big the space is.
