Harvey Norman - Toshiba 1TB Passport Hard Drive only $98

7 July 2010

Seems an absolute steal

Cheapest on StaticIce is $240 (up to $300)!

Is an ad in the local for the North Ryde store (Sydney) but assume it's at least Sydney wide and probably Australia wide.

Could even try taking the ad to Officeworks and get if for 5% less ($93.10).

Is as cheap/cheaper than the big bulky hard drives. This is the sort you can fit in your pocket.

Limit of 1 per customer.

Sale ends 11/7/10

    Went to get my offer, they were out of stock. But they did offer to back order if I paid right away at the same price. Seems like a wonderful bargain, though available only at this branch. I had managed to talk them into putting 2 pieces in my order... would be wonderful if things work out without issues!

What do you think?
