£32.84 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATA2 16MB

Combining proven components, state-of-the-art technology and expertise in volume manufacturing, the Seagate Barracuda (AKA ST3500620AS) 7200.11 drive—the 11th generation of this award-winning desktop hard drive family - delivers 500 GB of high-performing, eco-friendly digital storage.

Designed with industry-leading acoustics and power levels, and award-winning Seagate PMR technology, the Barracuda 7200.11 drive offers the ideal combination of world-class technology and lowest total cost of ownership.

The Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 drive delivers up to 43 percent power savings over the previous desktop generation without sacrificing drive and system performance levels, giving customers the ability to manufacture eco-friendly PC systems and external storage systems that meet energy-savings requirements.

Now, we're more impressed by the fact that it is a 500GB available for only £32.84 than for any other credentials. Sure it has a 16MB cache and comes with an industry-standard 5 year warranty, but surely the fact that you can combine two of those in a 1TB RAID-0 array for less than £70 is the most enthralling storage prospect for weeks.

Buy it at Aria (opens in new tab) for only £32.84 + P&P while stock lasts.
