Just a quick pointer. If you want a bargain external harddrive amazon seem to have massively misspriced ?!?! a Western Digital My Book Pro 1TB.

They're selling it for £116 whereas on Pixmania its £278 :o

They've sadly realised the error, and removed the product from amazon.

I tried to buy two, and the payment went through, but I've since recieved an email saying that they realised their mistake and that I'll get a refund within 48 hours.

They did give me free shipping from their website for one purchase, so its not all bad.

Oh well, there goes the hopes of having my own 1tb array funded by some ebayer...

Unless they can prove you knew it was their mistake, which is something very hard to do.

he wont. They have refunded me, and I cant see any reason that they would refund just some people, they definately know that it was a mistake though.

So basically, no. And I really dont have the energy to argue with them.
