good price for 1.5tb
#3
3.09p per GB - best Price:GB I've ever seen, and an excellent drive too - had one as a storage drive for about 6 months and it's fantastic. Put it this way - a good quality Taiyo Yuden DVD will cost between 15-20p per disc. With this drive you are essentially paying 14.5p for every DVD worth of storage space, but you can rewrite many many many many times, data will last far longer without corruption, much easier to store etc.

That is horrifically cheap!!
#5
Great price, paid £51 only a couple of weeks ago from Scan for the same product.

Think I will hold out this time though and go with the 2tb F4.

Very good.
#7
Amazingly cheap, heat added.
#8
Wow, what an amazing HDD deal. If you wanted to you could get 3TB for under £100, thats pretty amazing
#9
why are hard drives so cheap?and how do u use this?insert it into ur comp?or is it like portable?
#10
You can do either, insert it as an extra internal drive, or get a casing for around £5 and use it as an external.

No idea why HDD's are plummeting in price, presumably the parts that make them up are getting cheaper.

may seem silly question but what is spin speed of this drive.
#12
I keep thinking that hard drives can't get any cheaper. I keep getting proved wrong. I expect this one to go nuclear!!
#13
It's just the production techniques... they are making them quicker and more efficiently (and cheaper) - thankfully the consumers see the benefit. Things like RAM are a different kettle of fish as prices fluctuate all the time. With hard drives though - it's always been the case that you get more storage for cheaper, as time goes on
#14
5400RPM. Not really designed to be a boot drive, buy would be great for a NAS, mediacentre, PVR etc.
#15
im guessing that drives are getting cheaper due to the new sata 6gb/s which im sure will take off soon and become the norm for awhile
now if only i had enough stuff to fill one of these drives ;)
i remember drives in mb/s lol, now im showing my age
#16
Great price, cheers!

I have 2 of these drives already and though not the fastest they are great for media servers and general storage
#17
Ordered. Cheers!
#18
sata 6gb/sec is a bit pointless... Even the fastest SSD can't max out 3gb/sec at the moment.
#19
It seems wierd it says £46.40 but when i add it to my basket it goes up to £50.49 the p&p is free because im a member of AVforums can someone help.

Same here, Apricot F10's, 10meg HDD. It's later than you think ;)
I also remember 5.25" floppies holding 70k :)

1500 Gb...CAN WE AGREE THAT'S ENOUGH STORAGE SPACE OR SHALL WE CONTINUE TO MAKE THESE THINGS BIGGER?

If they lasted forever then fair enough!
#23
mental price! i am getting one of these a month (so as not to alert the holder of the purse strings ;) ) - i need 4 to back up all my dvd collection, however am almost tempted to say what the hell and just buy the last 2 i need now!!!!

(but the way things are going, they will be free with a box of corn flakes then! ;)

hot as hell!

Maybe for you!

A lot of people (including me) have at least 5tb of storage of storage and still need more.

At £45 who cares if it only lasts 37 months.

Ever heard of raid?

Yep will work fine, possibly even just as fast depending on the make/model of the 7200 RPM drive

you are thinking as a minor home user however.

take our data centre at work which needs 4 petabytes of extra data storage (so much so the national grid cannot supply enough electrictiy so we are looking to get our own windmill on site)

The bigger the harddisks get the fewer you need so the electricity savings are vast..

ok this is a complete extreme but the same is true for all office networks but on a smaller scale.

PS i need 4 of these! (and that is without any raid backup, so ideally i could do with 5)

What in the name of duck is a Petabyte? lol

As a home user, is not not more cost effective to get free hosting online on servers that are backed up? Countless webhosts out there giving away free webspace!

That is a completely different solution for a completely different problem.

If you don't have the internet then how do you access the file the way you suggested?

or play a 50gb 1080p MKV file?

or ... or ... get the idea?

1PB = 1000TB (ish - in reality it isnt)

you are thinking as a minor home user however.take our data centre at work which needs 40 petabytes of extra data storage (so much so the national grid cannot supply enough electrictiy so we are looking to get our own windmill on site)The bigger the harddisks get the fewer you need so the electricity savings are vast.. ok this is a complete extreme but the same is true for all office networks but on a smaller scale.

40?? I think Giganews has 20PB. What the hell does your place do?!

Slightly off-topic but what is the best 2TB HDD for a WHS. Noise level is the most important factor. Don't care about drive speed as long as it will close to saturate a gigabit network connection. At the moment I'm looking at the WD20EARS as the best contender.. Any other opinions?

Great deal. Just ordered one.

Go for the new Samsung F4 2tb on Scan for about £80

Very quick and almost silent. Possibly buying one myself.

cannot find it on there page what am i doing wrong?

ordered cheers:D

genome sequencing.... (but i edited my post, its 4PB not 40 but the rest was all accurate about the national grid and windmill!)


as of today before the expansion we have apparently close to 10,000 cores of compute predominantly in blade format, , and approximately 10 petabytes of raw storage capacity

mind boggling isnt it!

(sorry totally ot to this deal)

the samsung drives are practically silent btw

would that go in here ok? - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/225067

or worth just getting two of the above 1.5TB drives for this...

Ordered - I was debating whether I should go for a 2TB instead or a WD15EARS, but at £46 this is a damn good deal. Shame I couldn't order two :(
