    It's only about £950 over the top - but maybe the seller gives a cashback offer :ROFLMAO:

    Methinks there's an extra 9 in there

    I have a Western Digital 500gb, and a 1tb, and neither was over £100

    You will find many electronic equipment items increasing in price now and in the future, it's partly due to the price of gold, which at the moment is over £1000.00/oz.
