That old saying "if it sounds too good to be true".

Was looking at a 6TB drive for the PC based on cost. Would've preferred an 8TB as that's what has come out.

Funny because 2 days ago it was £110, yesterday it was £115 & today it's back to £110.
The 8TB version is £156.

Other online retailers are in and about that range. Example - Scan is cheaper at £149 but it's in and about there. Not sure what the total cost will be when you factor in delivery (I have Prime so don't get that with Amazon).

But then I saw this Morgan Ingland Ltd 8TB Seafate Barracuda. £120.

Tried to do a search on the company but didn't find much. Nothing like a Trustpilot or whatever. I did find this though:

You lot will be better at spotting red flags than me. Would you go for this if you were after an 8TB drive or would you just stump up the extra £36 and go with Amazon?

Actually, I'd possibly stick with the 6TB going with Amazon. Not fully decided yet.
