    I will give you a hot vote for this as it is not a bad price at all :)
    And WD have a good name too.
    I am reticent to look at cheaper generics for HDD - I stash my data to keep it safe so I am not keen to load it on to any old thing

    Thanks Robby

    Not a bad price. The 750GB model from ht.com.au is slightly better value at $224. I bought the 1TB model for $312 to backup my computer.

    500GB = 31.2c per GB

    750GB = 29.86c per GB

    1TB = 31.2c per GB

    So the 750 comes out on top for value per GB in this case

    I just couldn't resist the temptation to get the 1TB drive. I usually go for the cheapest though :p

    I work in IT, so I have to keep up appearances. :cool:

    I needed something to backup my data, I had a hard disk fail early last year, fortunately I was able to recover the majority of it, but I decided that I should probably get something that will allow me to backup all of my data, without having to resort to using hundreds of DVDs. I bought a 500GB WD My Book last year, but that isn't enough to backup the two computers.

    So now I can use the 500GB one to backup one computer and the 1TB one for the other computer.
