description-

The Samsung Spinpoint F1 is the first three-disk hard drive delivering a whopping 1TB of capacity along with sophisticated recording technology. With its compact, lightweight package and advanced design, the F1 drive offers many advantages for high-density applications compared to using two 500GB drives or a four- or five-disk solution. Compared to a five-disk 1TB solution, the F1 Series consumes 13-16% less power and provides up to 20% faster performance.

This 3Gbps SATA drive has a maximum of 334GB of formatted capacity per disk while also featuring Samsung's industry-leading NoiseGuard and SilentSeek technologies to eliminate acoustic noise. The Spinpoint F1 utilizes Samsung-developed perpendicular recording technology, which helps the drive set new records in both a real density and platter capacity.

The Spinpoint F1 requires fewer components than competing solutions while delivering enhanced reliability versus a 1TB drive with four or five disks or two 500GB disks. With fewer heads and disks, the F1 statistically has a lower probability of headdisk failures. According to estimates, this Samsung drive has a 50% lower failure rate than a two- 500GB-drive solution and as much as 31% fewer failures than five-platter 1TB drives.

Servers, high-end desktops, RAID systems and DVRs are among the applications well suited to the Spinpoint F1 drive. The drive is available with desktop PC- or RAID-level reliability. Mean time between failures for RAID reliability is up to 1.2 million hours. A rotational vibration sensor enables the drive to operate more efficiently in a RAID environment.

For consumer applications, a power-saving code reduces power consumption while AV-optimized firmware cuts time delays during AV data recording. In general, the Samsung drive offers a superior combination of density, recording quality and reliability.

Don't forget to add something to make the order 50 quid (ex vat)
#3
why would you add something when its 90 quid anyway
banned#4
:) good point... (need new batteries for my calc :))
#5
hard drives are more reliable at an 'optimum' operating temperature.

Is there no danger of a fan actually causing it to run below this optimum?
#6
Heard many complaint that these samsung HDD will failed within months (if not weeks) of operations. Any comments from owner of samsung 1Tb adn 750GB hdd thus far? not sure whether to go for 1TB or 750GB, 750Gb seems to be better value, but 1Tb seems faster with the 334Gb platter. But reliability is my priority.
#7
I have the Samsung 1 TB which so far I can recommend without reservation - only had it a couple of weeks though. I haven't heard anything online about them having reliability issues. Currently the 750GB version seems great value for money depending if you don't mind losing out on 250GB (ie you don't have many bays free etc)
#8
I've seen nothing but good reviews for these discs, including reliability and am tempted to desert seagate next time I need a large capacity disc. Price is keen as well, have some heat n rep :)
#9
I bought one for my mates new PC that I built for him and it developed bad sectors within 2 weeks.

They are the fastest 1TB drive on the market though - damn quick.
#10
I have had a 750 for 3 months with no problems but I also have a 2yr old 250 that no longer boots - did manage to recover the data on it tho.
#11
i got one of the very same 1tb drives a couple of months ago for £120 before it kept dropping down further. the drive is currently full bar about 7gig. i've not had any problems with it. i did a proper full format, full disc scan, copied over my 3 older drives and did another full scan, and kept an eye on it by doing some more scans over the next few days and it seems to be fine. i wish i had waited and saved £32, as thats more than the third of a second drive

at some point i'm looking to get another one so i can keep a "mirrored" backup on an external drive so the data can be easily accessed from another pc

i've not seen any real sign of bigger drives hitting the retail market yet. likewise the laptop market, 500gig seems to be the current biggest size, £150 at the moment, i'm looking for a couple when they hit around the £100 mark for my new laptop

Stick with the 500gb one :thumbsup:

I have a Samsing hard disk and it works fine, quite an old sata model though.
#14
The 1TB drive is faster than the 750gb drive, due to the 334gb platter.
#15
even though the GB Per Pound is higher than the one posted yesterday, this is easily the best offer for a 1TB drive on the market it is one of the best performers as well :)

Anyone who wants this it s not too late. As I type this I have just signed up with AVFORUMS, SCAN and just completed my order past the 12pm deadline! You do have to jump through a few hoops but if you are quick it will be owrth it. Hurry as I don't think it will be there much longer. (It is supposed to be gone already.

As for the offer itself.
Heat and added to reputation,.
Thanks alot for this offer.
I was gutted last week when I missed the today only offer for just the drive for £89.99.
Now I am glad that I missed that as you get a cooler for just an extra 47p :)

i've bought two of these for my new Qnap NAS and running both as RAID1 Mirrored. So far no issues.

I will soon buy another one once the price drops littlebit more so that i can backup my NAS. Thats me covered for disaster and recovery.

I have 1 x 400GB IDE Samsung, 2 x 500GB SATA Samsung, 1 x 750GB SATA Samsung and 2 x 1TB SATA Samsung drives, all are very quiet, and very reliable.

Samsung drives have a very good reputation in the PVR/DVR arena.

Put these Scan special offers in your basket and they will stay there at the special offer price until checked out, deleted, or cookies are cleared. That way you can wait a few days picking up the stuff you want at special offer discounted prices and then process the order when you have everything. Works for me ;)
