Good afternoon all, hopefully the long weekend was kind to you (though not so kind that it’s making the return to work too hard on you). Normally we run our Special Offers for the week on a Monday afternoon, but given the week that’s in it we’re going to have to run with it today instead
This week we’re offering a 1TB extneral hard drive, an AMD processor and an OCZ power supply. Without any more delay, we’ll get to the products themselves.
Packard Bell Carbon 1TB:
Whenever people ask about a low-cost 1TB external drive, we tend to direct them towards the Western Digital Elements, which weighs in at €76. For this week though, Packard Bell’s Carbon is down to €73, which pretty much makes it the cheapest 1TB external drive on offer.
By contrast to the Western Digital Elements, the Carbon is relatively simple aesthetically, lacking the rubberised chunks at either end that keep the Elements raised. This means that the Carbon is a bit easier to store, either in a backpack or just around the house.
Because of its power saving features, it’ll automatically drop itself to low power mode when your machine is turned off but the drive is still connected. That means it’s an excellent drive for those who’ll be happy to just plug it in and leave it on a shelf or desk and use it to store an archive of their media or even something as simple as a backup of a particularly important system.
When you consider the euro per GB cost, you’re getting around 13.6GB for €1, which isn’t a bad deal by any stretch of the imagination (unless my maths is out by miles). If you’re at all interested, you can check out our product page for the Packard Bell Carbon 1TB external to see more details and a few more pictures of the device itself.
At €73 it’s down 18% for this week.
