    Office works is playing silly buggers. They had that online one @ $299 for quite a while and then yesterday it suddenly jumped. Naughty officeworks.

    Looks like it's now cheaper to buy it from Harris Tech. It's the same price ($299) but you can get 10% cashback if you pay via PayPal plus 4.05% from Buckscoop. That should cover the postage cost and give you some spare change! :)

    Save more $$$ by picking it up. Pickup: Available at 11 Business Centres. ( See list on product page ) :)
  • gstok
    PayPal is not available for Store Pickup orders. Bugger!
  • lilpretzel
    Gee that's unfair. Sorry didn't think about that. :)

    I fail to see why they don't. Still $30 off (eventually) still makes it the cheapest bargain for this item, since postage should be less than this.

    The officeworks shipping policy is as follows. Delivery is free for orders of $50 or more (excluding big and bulky items) to metropolitan areas in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. If you are in those delivery areas and your order is less than $50, you will be charged a small delivery fee of $5.45. For deliveries to areas outside the main metropolitan centres you will be charged $25.95 (including GST) for an order of any value (excluding big and bulky items). A nominal handling fee of $3.95 applies to all orders but handling fees will not apply on replacement orders or returned items.

    I got one of these from the last sale and it is awesome. Ive heard rants about it but so far so good for me. I mean it is cheaper to buy a 1tb hdd and a separate enclosure but I did that with my last one and man, it feels flimsy and fragile. Good buy if you have problems with deleting like me :)

    does this drive use a power brick our does a standard power cable plug straight into it?
  • admin EDITOR
    are you asking about whether its a two part cable with the transformer in the middle section or one of the ones where its integrated into the plug ?? My understanding is that everything will need the transformer brick somewhere in the line.
  • admin EDITOR
    Just looking at the US model - its got the transformer inbuilt into the plug end bigal - if that helps.

  • bigal
    I was wondering if it has the powersupply built into the case or if it was external in an powere adapter.
  • admin EDITOR
    External. Definately.
  • diider
    most if not all 3.5 external HDD's require an external power supply. darn it, i wouldnt mind another one but my big trip to japan is coming up!
  • admin EDITOR
    Thats a very good price for 1 terra of storage.

What do you think?
