    great deal there. might have to grab another one of these HDD this week. really weird thing is though that I have never seen them sell portable HDDs at at least 4 kmarts that i go regularly..

    Good price for a 2.5" geo - hot from me.

    Thinking of grabbing one, but not a fan of the Y-cable.

    i called my local kmart and the lady said that it's likely that it's the 250gb 3.5 ones as it is selling for $129 at the moment. everything can be confirmed tomorrow morning so i shall report back when I hear anything :)
  • diider
    it's definitely the 3.5" one cause i called up 3 stores to ask. they were like 3.5" is still portable. like hello? how is that really portable?
  • admin EDITOR
    ha - thanks for that diider. In that case its pretty crappy value. Portable, so long as you love carrying bricks around.

    Not bad price even if it is 3.5" .. but 2.5" woulda been excellent!
  • bt34
    So, it's definitely a 3.5"? *puts money back in wallet.
  • admin EDITOR
    Apparently so bt.

    i'd say it's quite bad for a 3.5" as you can get 500gbs for around 140ish and 750 for 170ish (from memory), so 250gbs for 100bucks isn't good at all in $/gb sense, + it's quite small..
  • evilhomey
    It is indeed the 3.5" version. The friendly kmart staffer said it was a printing error in the catalogue.
  • admin EDITOR
    Damn - it would have been a good buy.

What do you think?
