Brisbane: Maxtor 500gb USB 2.0 External Hard Drive for $99. New HT Store Opening Special!

8 October 2007

In today's Courier-Mail there is an ad for the opening of a new Harris Technology Store in Indooroopilly, Brisbane.

One of their opening specials was the above hard drive, for $99! I believe it's the same as the one I've linked to (though less than half price).

Also said limit 1 per customer.

Just checked out the link then and under availability there is none at Indooroopilly, but maybe they'll get more in stock tomorrow.

If you're in the area, and need some cheap storage, this may be a good option!
(Though I personally prefer the WD myBook - www.wdmybook.com)

    Thanks enthusiast! I justed posted a few good deals on the WDs and the Seagates from HT as well... but not a patch on this price. Unfortunately the reputation of Maxtor has always been tainted in my opinion... but I do think this is a mega bargain for anyone who can manage to get one!!

    They've always had a bad reputation for the drives just giving up the ghost and dying...

    Being Harris Tech you think they could give away a bunch more serious promo stuff at the opening. Still - it was a stunning price for 500gb.

What do you think?
