HP XB3000 EXPANSION BASE UPDATE TO NEW PRICE!!!!!!

I wrote this guide below a while ago, but on checking out to see if anyone was reading it, I had a quick look and then I thought I would just check to see if it was at the same price or if they had made a mistake at PC World..............I paid £29.99 at the time I wrote this guide which was about I suppose maybe 2 months ago.

IT HAS BEEN REDUCED TO THE FOLLOWING PRICE £19.99 CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??.....I CAN'T BUT IT IS.
So if your looking for one of these and at the cheapest price around go to PC WORLD, Brand New, but you can only collect it in store, you can also reserve it online and pick it up in about an hour after reserving it.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING..................................................................................................................................................................

When I bought the XB3000 Expansion base I found out you could install a Hard Drive in it, they come in 300GB and 400GB.
I tried to call HP in the UK to find out about this, absolutely useless, they hadn't a clue what the part number was etc, I was passed to one department then another.

MY ADVICE.........................................................................................................................................................................................................

Buy your hard disk from AMERICA there are plenty of sellers selling them, I bought mine from a seller in america, in a offical HP product box with warranty 400GB Disk and I paid £83.88 for the Disk and about £25 for the shipping to the UK, BEAR THIS IN MIND YOU WILL BE CHARGED FROM CUSTOMS A CUSTOMS CHARGE, which should be around £30, I still believe it is a bargain, if someone is now selling these in the UK, Great as I would like another one, if not then buy in USA, as you will find it hard to get....


I HOPE THIS HAS HELPED.....
please read on if you would like to know what I said in my original guide, but what ever you do, don't pay through the nose for an item which is cheaper else where, I love ebay, but I don't like being robbed by sellers, and I think if they are out there selling these new, then why not try to reflect the price you can pay anywhere else.....

HOPE YOU BAG A BARGAIN.

THANKS EVERYONE LEE.

The HP XB3000 Expansion Base @ PC World for only £29.99 which you can either buy in store or reserve on the net and collect it...........

PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ARE BEING SOLD ON EBAY FOR SILLY MONEY.....

I was interested in one of these at the beginning of the week and I searched ebay high and low, I selected the items I wanted to watch and the day after I started to look into the specification on these.

I also compared prices too and found that PC World are currently selling these for only £29.99, this is a amazing offer as what you get is a very sturdy base that has 6 usb ports, ethernet connection, monitor connection, mouse and keyboard connection, (be aware there is no keyboard supplied with these or the mouse either) the spec is good believe me, as I bought mine from PC World, reserved it at 2pm and picked it up at 3pm, no waiting for long delivers from sellers.

Don't get me wrong I love ebay, but a bargain and saving money is priority.

So if your looking for one of these then look no further than PC World, It may have been a mistake or just a great bargain from them, but If I were you and you want one then I would do it soon, as you never know how long these bargains last for........................................

I have seen these sell on ebay for up to £51. then the P&P at £12.99 upwards.

I hope this helps you all out and if you think this did help please say it was helpful on the review.

Thanks everyone

Lee.

PLEASE NOTE THAT I FORGOT TO MENTION BUT THE POWER CORD IS INCLUDED WITH YOUR PURCHASE, THE POWER CABLE IS INSIDE THE BOX, IN IT'S OWN INDIVIDUAL PACKAGING, IT MAY SEEM YOU HAVEN'T GOT ONE BUT IT IS INCLUDED, THEY JUST DON'T TELL YOU WHEN YOU BUY IT!!!!!!!, I HAVE UPDATED THIS AS SOME SELLERS ARE CLAIMING THIS IS AN ADDED BONUS, BUT IT IS NOT AS HP HAVE STARTED TO PACKAGE THE POWER SUPPLY AS STANDARD WITH THEM.

ALSO NOTE THAT THE HARD DISK CARRIER, WHERE YOU CAN INSTALL A HARD DISK IN THE BASE IS NOT INCLUDED WITH THE EXPANSION BASE AS I WAS LED TO BELIEVE, YOU HAVE TO PURCHASE THIS EITHER WITH THE HARD DISK OR FROM A SUPPLIER WHO I HAVE NOT FOUND YET, I DID CONTACT HP CUSTOMER SUPPORT YESTERDAY WHO COULD NOT HELP AT ALL.

I HOPE THIS IS OF SOME HELP TO YOU ALL.
