I got a Samsung sp1604n 160 Ultra ATA 133 7200rpm drive from pc world for 77 quid nice drive to fast and seeing as the 80 gig 1 was 68 quid i thought why not.

True. Recently picked up a Seagate 80Gb from PC World Business for £45, and a Seagate 120Gb for £69. Also the setup utility you can download from the Seagate site sets up and formats these discs in a matter of seconds. I don't expect to have any problems with them. (shouldn't have said that)


How are you geting on with your machine?

About 3 months ago, I bought 2x Maxtor 150SATA 120gb drives for 120 squids(total).

They're pretty decent too!

Maxtor, Western Digital or Seagate 120G hard drives are all about £68 click here.

You can get an Epson printer for about £50 click here, and if you get compatible (not Epson original) ink cartridges from Choice Stationery, the printer will be very cheap to run click here
