For an extra £7.50 I think you'd be better off going for a Samsung SpinPoint F1 at Ebuyer.

Definitely - Samsung F1 is the best 1TB drive. I have 6 including some purchased when they first came out. I just wished they would introduce a 1.5TB or 2TB (at a decent price).

I too have been a victim of the 'Deathstars' but that would not stop me buying a modern Hitachi. However they really don't compare well to Samsung/WD/Seagate, on performance, noise, power consumption, etc.... They do make some nice 2.5" drives.

This can be used in Samsung Sky HD machines (not many drives can)

Also, cheaper collected from Lincoln on tekheads.co.uk - £69.99 collected.

Hi bytemaster,
If you have any good reveiws to back up your statements about the Hitachi I'd be really interested.

Take a look at the in depth review done by tomsharware:
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/hdd-terabyte-1tb,review-31437-16.html
(I've linked to the conclusions but go back a few pages for the individual test results)

While the sammys a great drive, stating that this Hitachi doesn't compare well to Samsung/WD/Seagate just isn't born out by the test results. Perhaps you were thinking of the inferior previous model the 7K1000 (without the .B)?

"If you’re looking for an all-rounder, we recommend going either for Hitachi’s Deskstar 7K1000.B (watch for the B!) at 1 TB, 750 GB or 640 GB, which offers balanced performance and efficiency"



OP,
I'm not going to vote this cold, but as it was available for less than £70 over the weekend from scan, and is still cheaper (without restriction to only 1 drive) I can't really vote deal as hot either - but it does seem to be a good drive.

I stand corrected. It appears that Hitachi have made very significant improvements with this B model and have finally caught up with their competition. All I can offer in my defence is that every group test I have read for the last two years has placed Hitachi drives at the back of the pack with the Samsungs at or near the front.

Have you seen any reliability stats for the Hitachis?

No problem, last year when I needed a few drives I went for the F1s myself - no regrets :)

No I haven't, and I'd love to see some, but given that this drive has been around for half a year, I'm relying on the fact that any systemic Seagate like problems :whistling: would probably have surfaced in the public domain by now.

1TB drives seem to be going up in price at the moment, or at least they are not coming down. It's almost cheaper to get an external drive and prise one open instead ...
