    Luverly cock up

    Just to let anyone in blighty know, currently at Maplins you can get an 80Gb hard drive for 60! A mix up in the coding allowed a lot of 7200rpm 80Gb hard drives into 20Gb boxes and no-one cares! Look for code TL17, ask to look inside the box first. But don't mention the mistake...

    Ok, I just don't see the point of this other than as an advertisement. I'll give the benifit of the doubt however and perhaps it's well intended just to inform people, but even it is I don't think anyone would enjoy if everyone just starts posting the good deals they find around home, especially considering that the primary populace of these boards are form three continents, at least a dozen coutries and alsmost as many cities as users...

    This one is closed, further posts like this will be deleted.

    If anyone has issues with this they are welcome to PM me and object and I will be happy to discuss it with you.

    EDIT:

    Reopenned on appeal. Please lets not have a bunch of one liners proclaiming how great a deal we got etc. Though the mislabling is nice .

    Well, who works for Maplin? I remember somebody on the site saying they did do in the past. Was it the thread starter? Who knows.

    BTW I got a 100GB for that price. Just go to independant small specialist and you will rejoice at the cheap prices being offered.

    And Maplin are tat anyway!
    Such is life.
