    £2.84 cheaper than ebuyer.
    I'll have to keep an eye on them.

    Never had a problem with Komplett over the last 18 months or so...

    Great weekly specials that's for sure!

    At that price I'd go for the WD 120JB, 8MB cache, 3 year warranty, faster and better reliability than the Maxtor. See here for details. You can get them from Komplett, Scan, EBuyer, everywhere really.

    Yes those 8mb 3yr models are lovely I admit.

    Picked up a pair of the WD180gb 8mb cache/3yr warranty models (with free ata133 controllers/etc bundled as well) for only $199 each in the states and had my sister-in-law bring them over in here carryon when she visited earlier this year.

    Sorted my HTPC out quite nicely must admit :smashin:

    That particular 120gb drive (the 6Y120L0 or P0) is recommended for sky+ mods, seems to spin up as quickly as other 5400's or at least quick enough that sky+ hasnt fallen over unlike some 7200rpms

    I bought a harddrive from Komplett which was Dead on arrival.

    They took ages and ages to sort it out, and eventually I just canelled the order and got a refund but even that took a long time. All in all i would say it was a few months of me ringing them everyday...... my opinion.... dont buy harddrives online (especially from Komplett)... they break too easily in the post.
