seems like a great price for a 1.5tb samsung to me! its 83p cheaper on the today only section so just click today only on the scan home page and scroll down to 'sata hard drive mix' and find it there.
this is a great drive to use as a secondary drive for storing music, movies, photos etc. i wouldn't recommend it for a boot drive though.
also great to use along with an SSD for boot :)!
free delivery through hexus and av forums as usual

Take care if you have problems with the drive. I recently had a drive delivered from Scan, which was shown as faulty in the manufacturer's diagnostics program. To be on the safe side, I even used my camera to take photos of the error (DOS based program, so couldn't easily do a screenshot).
However, Scan told me they tested it as working, and charged 15gbp plus vat before the refund, even though I offered the photos as proof. I was told these would not be accepted, unless they showed the serial number of the drive. A problem when the manufacturer's tool doesn't show the serial number on the error screen.
In the process, I had two emails ignored before I resorted to calling them, and a promised email from a manager never arrived. I'm now attempting to get the full balance back via a chargeback. I won't be using them again.

I've posted a factual account of my experience with them. I'm allowed to do that. My own experience of ebuyer's customer services have actually been quite good in recent years (although not when they started out).

Bought this drive only a couple of week back for around £46.

He's just giving an honest account of his experience with Scan.

Personally I think ebuyer have been better for returns than scan. Ebuyer have always paid for item to be picked up and dealt with issue promptly, personally I don't think they even bother test the item, it's just not worth the hassle over low priced items for them. Scan on the other hand seem to be far too difficult about it. Saying that I don't have a problem with Scan generally, they do the minimum, it's just that ebuyer usually exceed expectation.

I'm sure someone will have a contradictory tale to mine too.

Absolutely. The last straw for me with ebuyer was the last thing I bought. A five day delivery ended up 10 days just through the pettiness of their dispatch. The item was there, and they didn't bother posting it til Thursday, thus assuring a second weekend to interupt the delivery. Ordered one Friday at 09:30, delivered a week the following Tuesday.
Ive never bought from eBuyer since, and don't intend to
They constantly have reviews saying how fabulous their deliveries are, yet of all the people I know who buy from them , NO-ONE has a good word to say about them.
I even queried one delivery with the company they were using, and the girl told me that eBuyer has more people angrily phoning them to find out where their delivery has got to than any other net company.
Ive had ONE thing from Scan, and it was delivered no faster than anyone else, and better than eBuyer (but then everyone better than eBuyer)

Granted, Scan's next day delivery is faultless (and free thanks to AV forums). Never had issue with Ebuyer though they are slower for their free option it's never been longer than 2-3 days.

Generally I have no allegiance to either, best price seals it for me.

Personally, never had ONE item ever arrive earlier than 5 days from the, But thats OK. But in the last 2 years NOTHING has arrived in the 5 days. The 10 days was, as I said, the last, for me. No excuse for their attitude of not even attempting to send it for more than a week. I had been off work (rest days) on the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and had asked why it hadn't been dispatched and then they seemed to make no attempt until they KNEW the weekend would get in the way. Its happened more than once with them. Just 10 days was the last straw.
Again, I have NEVER had anything delivered in less than 5 days
I have started buying my stuff elsewhere. Novatech for one.
#13
....though, that said - I was expecting my 4gb of DDR3 memory to be delivered Friday or Saturday from Novatech - but they weren't ! Still, Monday's still OK for length of time, TBF. :p
(Bought a Barebones package of an AMD X6 1090t and THAT was delivered VERY quickly - spoilt, I suppose !)
#14
argh, got the 1tb for £40 a week ago, an extra £8.16 for 500gb?
HOT!
#15
Very tempted by this, with the free delivery. Would have prefered it to be 2tb though.
#16
Not voting. A saving of 83p doesn't warrant another post for me.

In his credit, it looks to me like johnnneyboy was just stating the facts from his experience in a clear and concise way.

I use Scan all of the time, and will continue to do so, but I had a similar experience with a HDD I bought from them last year - it had bad sectors out of the wrap - probably down to the fact that it was an OEM drive wrapped in bubblewrap 5 times round its circumference (not really sufficient if City Link or whoever they used decided to use it as a football) and they wouldn't refund me, stating that I had to return it to the manafacturer. I gave up trying in the end. But I still go back to them as the other 99.9% of my orders with them have been perfect.

This looks like a fine deal to me - not really the 83p saving on today only - but the price for the drive overall. HOT!

My very recent sorry tale with SCAN including Court action is here in its full glory ...

I will never buy from SCAN again - this bad experience was enough for me.

They are not faultless - in the past they have bubble packed multiple drives badly - not insulating them seperately. They refuse to use individual carboard boxes with foam liners as specified by drive manufacturers - but then other suppliers are also guilty of this.

Also their misinformation on their product pages implying UK manufacturers warranty when they often source non-EU stock is also ripe for some interesting consumer claimant action.
#19
I use scan all the time . I ahve mostly had v good experiences with them but a few bad ones where I was less impressed. We need more companies like scan though, they offer competitive prices that are always close to being the best. They are on the side of the customer, just realise they operate on very tight margins. Try getting the latest products or the same prices from the his street and youd realise what a good company scan is.
#20
Oh and grumpy one I have taken up the oem and sourcing odf drives plus guarantee issue with them.
They just normally state the warranty. They use grey imports soemtimes which enable you to get the best prices. If you wnat UK imports then buy the more expensive version from Amazon.

Scan agree to cover oem products themselves, although how they do that is another matter. You huys cnat have it both ways and as for taking legal action thats a bit laughable.
#21
I have had zero problems with Scan used them for the last few years. Although I'm in need of a new HDD my current one is nearly maxed out will hold out to see if prices fall further before year end!
#22
Nice deal. I paid ~£70 for the same drive only a few months ago.

I too have had problems with SCAN in the past though, twice I've been charged the £15 + vat "fault not found" fee when I've sent back a definitely faulty item.

I note in the thread that the Corsair rep made a snide comment about "I am glad that you were able to get resolution. I am sorry that our repeated offers to replace your PSU were insufficient.
".
Did Corsair offer to pay the extortionate postage to Holland? it's around £38 to ship these PSUs out there. I've just had a similar issue with an OCZ PSU failing within the warranty period and got the RMA agreed, only to refuse to pay £38 postage to replace a £50 unit. I'll never buy OCZ again either.
Ironically I bought my replacement Corsair PSU from Scan as they've promised a 5 year return to Scan in the UK if it fails !

Their wording on their Samsung HDD product pages under Warranty clearly state ...

Details
Duration: 36 months
Type: Direct
DOA Period: 28 days
RTB Period: 1 months
Manufacturer Contact Details
Manufacturer: Samsung
Telephone: 0208 337 3901

That my friend is a clear case of goods being misrepresented - if you receive said product and find out Samsung UK and it's authorised UK Service Agent will not warranty the item.

UK consumer legislation is drafted to protect consumers against such misleading representations of goods. I can assure it is not a matter legislastors would treat with humour - Scan fanboys excepted.

tempted to buy two of these. have two already, one in pc and one in nas. could raid them to have a nice amount of storage.

they are excellent drives!

... The grey import thing is thrown up in every hard drive deal @ scan, but people always post back confirming it's the full 3 year warranty once it arrives. It's something Scan did do a few years back, but not any more ...


RUBBISH ! I have several Samsung drives bought THIS year from SCAN - the last one in August, that are Code 103 "The product has been brought in from outside of this service region and cannot be serviced"

Check your facts !! The Hexus forums are full of posts about this issue!
#28
You have done great grumpyone, set a very good example to against the retailers when they are not making responsibility to their customers. Scan should have watched your youtube clips about the fan noise problem to avoid such big hassle. They should have paid you extra for your time and effect to deal with them.
#29
yeah not bad

incidentally, pc world are doing 2TB external drives for £99 at the moment is fairly decentish price.

otherwise a 1.5TB samsung for £50 + a HDD enclosure for another £20 or so.
#30
Bought 2 of these last week for £96 for my server, excellent drives so far, might buy another 2.

First time I'd ordered from Scan, ordered 3pm and it arrived 11am the next morning, no complaints at all

Obviously not in this case...one bad customer experience...is one too many :)
I would take it up with the CEO...if he cant understand the customers issue and cant resolve it then...they dont know how to run a business :)

A lost customer is worth thousands in business over the years :) you do the maths :)

Just ordered one and a smart multimedia keyboard for a fiver, got my free delivery through a/v forums.

Don't like the 'optional' scansure insurance £1.72 added to my bill which I removed, hope this wasn't a mistake, smacks to me of a Sopranos protection racket, 'have you heard a lot of windows are getting broken around here - £1.72 could stop that happening................'

Cynical moi............
#34
Scan are ok when things go right, their rma systems that they have put in place to protect themselves cause huge inconvenience to the customer (having to wait > 1 month to replace a brand new faulty graphics card).

Their CS are good, their protocols are a pain in the bum; I've also been surprised at how much of my stuff and my friends' have had problems, probably pushing 10-20%.

Good price, just note this is F2, not the later F3. I bought the 1TB 7200RPM F3 for £41.
#35
If you buy one of these and have major problems getting Windows to see or format it, then it may not be a faulty drive. I recently had to update my motherboard sata drivers to get it to access a 2TB drive properly after days of seemingly random lock ups.

For anyone else struggling with an Nvidia chipset on their motherboard and Windows 7 64 bit...

Hope this stops someone else pulling their hair out.

whoever said the "scansure" thing is sinister was dead right. i've never touch wood broken something installing, but something implies if you haven't paid their tax, they might accuse you of it?

Well I have just read through that link and it has certainly put me off from ever dealing with Scan! It's quite amazing how stupid some companies are, don't they realise that things have changed and customers have rights? Even if they had deemed that the fan was not noisy why did they not just change the item and keep a customer happy, all they have achieved is paying out a lot more, upset you and now that you have told your story put off others too.

Some companies have to realise that they can never win a battle with a customer, they may think they have won but if their victory loses future business then they are the losers! :)

next day delivery as promised.
scan gave me a free SATA cable too, woo!
lucky me.

Ordered Sunday afternoon, text to say it was on it's way Monday, another 08:46 Tues morning to say it would be delivered between 10:30-11:30, delivered at 10:30 on the dot, packaged in a ton of jiffy bubble wrap, so much so it looked like an oversized Rugby ball, contents aok, very pleased customer here atm!
