    Pricecheck

    Just wondering what people reckon the price would be for this - it's a Seagate 500GB Pipeline HD .2, ST3500312CS. I have no idea what people tend to spend on "second hand" hard drives so I'm just throwing it out there in the hope of some pointers!

    I can't find it anywhere, but it seems to be extremely similar to Scan's ST3500321CS, although not exactly, which is currently £40. It's brand new, unopened, and according to the Seagate website the warranty runs through until September 2012.

    Thanks

    I reckon you'd be looking at £30ish.

    Re: Pricecheck

    Yeah, I reckon £25 - £30 sounds reasonable - you might squeeze a little more if it "BNIB" though. I look forward to seeing it arrive on the FS forum

    I don't know about the box, so we'll call it Brand New In Bubblewrap... I'll see about getting it on its way to the classifieds.

    /me now understands why scaryjim suggested £25 as a lower bound
