Found this price today while browsing OW @ Melbourne QV and it's on their website.
Mod - edited title.
Also available at other officeworks stores and in a wide range of colours.

It's $97 at Dicksmith Electronics.
That is $97 for the 250GB model, not the one in this thread, cheers
Better off paying an extra two bucks for the extra 70GB ey ;)
good price. How much do they have the 500gb for? (Im lazy)
$150 upwards, probably closer to $160~
For those in BrisVegas, Computer Alliance still have the LG XD1 320GB USB HDD with eSATA for $99.
I just posted this in the other thread, but I saw that MSY has 320GB 2.5” Maxtors for $85. If you go to their homepage just click on the state special, but it looks like it’s only in QLD, VIC & WA:
…not sure how long it’ll last.
it's a hassle getting to victoria's MSY store in clayton though, so i think officeworks' 99 for 320gb is fine
probably a hassle for some other people too
which stores will be able to price match this, and which stores would be able to price match it to the lowest price?
Generally speaking Officeworks have the best price match policy, but you could try your local Harvey Norman or Bing Lee and they will probably price match at $99. Doubt you'll get it any cheaper though. Your best off just buying it from OW and saving yourself the hassle.
In the paper yesterday Bing Lee have the 250GB one for $79 special
same $/gb so i guess all depends how much space you need :)
I use one of these on my Wii. Works great. Paid $98 about 6 months ago at OW
I'm a little weary of these HD now… I bought a 400GB one at office works a few months back, but find that on my laptop, it only works if I have my laptop plugged into the power. There's plenty of info online saying that this unit will only work through a Powered USB connection and sometimes doesn't work through hubs. I also can't get the backup software working through my Vista Home Premium installation anymore.
if your computer is usb 1 then you need to stick two of the usb connectors (usually provided with drive) into the laptop to give it enough current to run
