Random is good. I think i'd jump around the room like a maniac if mine broke and strongly consider getting rid of my games. Having paid top price at launch I'd be too angry to replace it, certainly not done that on previous consoles.

£70.47 including P+P if not a member of AVForum/Hexus

Also waiting for it to drop below £60. OP edit it so you add the delivery charges for non AV forum /Hexus posters. These are better drives than I expected and have had no problems so far. Perfect for storing/archiving stuff on.

[SIZE="2"]If you need an alternate supplier, eBuyer have them for £69.99 with free delivery, which is 48p cheaper than Scan if you have to pay for delivery.;-)

...and no I am not on commission!! :)[/SIZE]

Bah, need a few more 2TB drives - at this price-point really - filled my last one up in a matter of weeks. Maybe by the end of the year? I can hope.
#12
I purchased the Spinpoint F3 for £57 from Scan a few months ago. The drive is extremely noisy, although I don't know if it is a fault with mine.

Still an excellent price for a 1.5TB F2:thumbsup:

LOL - famous last words !!
I said pretty much the same when I got my first hard drive - a 20MB "monster" :w00t:

If it's noisy, you can get it RMA'd with Samsung. I do this all the time when drives start getting noisy - back the data up and send it away (usually about £7-8 to send, but better than losing data!).

On occasions, I receive a drive back that is a newer version or higher capacity, which is nice.
#15
Picked up one of these from aria last week for £65 (including their ripoff delivery charges) and happy with it so far, using in my htpc and its nice and quiet so far :thumbsup:

Good deal heat added :thumbsup:
#16
Cheaper if you get 2 - see the today only - £122.19
#17
Can anyone comment on the difference between this drive, the 1.5TB Samsung HD154UI Spinpoint F2 DT EcoGreen ....

and the F3 version - 1.5Tb Samsung HD153WI, SpinPoint EcoGreen F3 ...

Is is worth paying the little bit extra ? :thinking:
#18
I will prefer the F2, it comes with NCQ!
#19
Got 4 of these babies in RAID5...run smooth and easily max out my gigabit network when pushed!

The low power credentials and price won me over a few months ago, I can see this going down to below £50 by Christmas at this rate. Only got about 1TB left though so might have to start thinking of merging another one in soon :)

Hot from me!

I have been incredibly impressed with the 500gb F3 (HD502HJ) I put in my build, load times are lightning fast (though obviously not SSD performance). I do need a larger second drive at some point as my media is stored externally at the moment. Dread to think how many terabytes that would require...
#21
I've already got nigh on 4TB in my PC, but it's somewhat lacking in organisation...:|

I had been looking at the 1TB for £52ish but all my SATA ports are full so I'd need a PCI card to add more. Yep... PCI... No E for this old chap! My Mesh has a "Tool free" system but can I get the back plate off? Can I bloomin' heckers like. And for the 1st time Mesh have let me down on the email support with no answer. For now at least.

I've got Six P55 SATA 3Gbps ports and one Gigabyte SATA (JMicron) chip. What's different about the 7th, slower?
My current drive is on the P55 with AHCI enabled.
Still get confused about them :)

I suspect the 6 x P55 one's you mention are on one SATA controller (probably an Intel ICH9/10 chipset?) So you can do cool stuff like RAID them all together, RAID5, 1, 0 or even 10 (raid levels explained here http://www.integratedsolutions.org/raid_ov.htm).

The single JMicron SATA connection could be used for a legacy SATA1 drive or DVD drive etc?

You could even go as far as buying 6 of these drives, sticking them in RAID5 so you'd have 7.5TB of usable space plus using the slower SATA port for a 160GB drive for the operating system? And if a hard drive ever failed in the RAID5 array, you wouldn't lose any data, just swap the drive out ASAP and it would rebuild its self so you're protected again :) You don't want to lose 2 drives at once though, otherwise you lose all the data...happened to me twice at work now, it's not pretty!

HTH

Just read this bit...


Model HD154UI/JP1 is NOT designed to be used in Desktop but specifically made for use with Docking/Rack/Caddy Use Only, these are being sold cheap!


Any cause for concern?

according to scan

Important Note: We sell the proper version only, It works Everywhere. Peace of mind with Scan! Always!


sorry just noticed you're also quoting scan, doh!

rather odd though.
#28
Yep... Left me a bit puddled as well.

Perhaps they mean in an office or up a tree?!?
#29
As long as it has a SATA and power connection on it, I'd say it's good for any hard drive purpose...
#30
Nng... I'd half decided to bottle it and go for the 1TB F3 and then you reassure me... :p

Reason behind my now dead decision was the 7200rpm opposed to 5400 on this, and a tenner in my back pocket, although an extra 500gig for another tenner ain't to be sniffed at...

I'm going for a brew and a ponder. :roll:

Nng might not be a word, but it's the closest I can get to the noise I just made so you'll have to lump it!!! Heheh!
#31
Bargain, i bought a 1tb samsung f3 for the same price, should have waited around
#32
It's Glastonbury weekend and I normally record as much coverage as I can, my HTPC hard drives have alot of programming I've not got round to sorting/watching.

Noticed Scan were selling these 1.5TB drives for £58.74 today, so got one to save me trying to savage space from my current drives. I've had a few of the Western Digital Caviar Green drives which will happily many TV channels at the same time using DVBViewer without breaking into a sweat.

I'm expecting this drive will perform in a similar way, I read reports of these drives having a clicking noise but most report say this is normal and only happens at start-up and shut down
