    The Black 1TB Essentials one ($249) looks a lot better than the one on offer. Probably the same drive under the hood though!

    might look better, but it's a plastic case vs a metal one for the one in this offer. and it's $50 more expensive.

    Probably not golfy - I've seen officeworks chop and change the price on 1Tb drives regularly. Interestingly - Western Digital dont list a 1 Tb externals on their site. Max size is 640Gb. Was trying to find out whether the base drives were identical but they dont have a whole lot of info on there about the nuts and bolts. Mostly just marketing fluff.

    I see officeworks dont carry the Elements on the online site either. What is it with them......

    I'm wondering whether there isnt a stuff up here on the part of officeworks. I cant find a WD 1Tb Elements drive..... anywhere..........
  • geo78
    maybe it's actually the one that was $249.

    i was thinking that maybe they got the picture wrong and actually it should have been the essentials one that is online for $249.

    if you want to double-check with your store, you can call them on 1300 633 423 and they will transfer you to your local store.

    Going by another forum this catalogue is to go on sale 31/07/08 You can ask for a customer order using the product code (WDE1U1TBA) and pay the $199 upfront. Pick up is when item arrives instore, I don't think they would allow you to take the item if it's instore now since the special states on the 31st July. Any members been able to order this or buy and take home now?

    according to the email reply I got from Officeworks: This is a retail only line and is available from the 31/07/08. There is very little information as yet but from what I can gather it is a 1 TB Elements model. Please forward to me your postcode and I will provide you with a list of your local stores contact details for further confirmation. I hope I have been of assistance and please let me know if I can be of further help. Kind Regards Shane Swinburne Web Consultant Officeworks BusinessDirect [url]www.officeworks.com.au[/url]

    Still ugly. :) Still better to get the LaCie for $199, minus 10% if you got a targeted voucher.

    Back again :)
