Alternatively buy a decent 120gb HDD for 90 and find out how to install it
for free on the web! ;-)

Insider - If you're confident that the 90 drive you select will work or you
don't mind wasting 90 then go ahead pal!

Fact is that A LOT of drives either don't work at all or work unreliably or
break after being used for a while.

Since postage and VAT are included and the security bits are supplied at the
cost price of 10 (you can delete them if not required), most people
appreciate that this is not a 'megabucks scam', but rather a genuine attempt
to help fellow Sky+ fans get the most out of their equipment.

The answer to that is to pick a type of drive that others have had
success with and, above all, get one with a three year manufacturer's
warranty (and there are only two of those left now).


the security bits are supplied at the
cost price of £10


I bought a set of recessed Torx bits for £4, retail.

That said, your pricing for these drives isn't unreasonable on the
whole.

Any chance of details of where you bought 'em?

A local electrical shop. Just a small set of 8 bits, admittedly.
