You forgot to add delivery costs.

Indeed = £6.95 :x
#3
Only one 1TB drive per order at this price. (£72.39 for 2+)

Delivery is £6.95 so single order total would be £64.39 delivered for one.

(but you can order more stuff on the same order obviously!)

Oddly shipping is £7.99 through google checkout ?!

apologies, a few of these with a NAS store would work out very cheap though!
#5
I got the email flyer it's a good deal but I got too many not in use it's tempting though a would be the cheapest one I have bought all others have been samsung drives which I like because they are faster than I ever expected, not sure how fast these 16mb cache hits are but has to be worth a punt

Absolute bargain heat added

Here's the question to ask yourself?

Q: Do I need an extra 1TB of data storage right now?

If the answer is yes, fair enough, order

But if the answer is 'I still have about 200gb spare on existing drive', why not wait a few months, when prices will inevitably be cheaper :-)
#8
Wouldn't touch Hitachi

they make horrible hard drives

for this reason im not voting.

pay a bit extra and go for Samsung or Western Digital
#9
Decent price but the shipping kind of kills the bargain, Heat added anyway. :)

Based on.... PluckedOutOfTheAir Inc?

I take it you're thinking of the old Deathstar's that were originally produced by IBM (which had terrible reliability) IBM's HDD division was bought out by Hitachi.

The failure rate of Hitatchi drives was the best of the top five drive manufacturers in 2005. This according to the largest parts supplier in Russia/Europe.

Want and need are two totally different things :-D

True and the F1 spin point really is only a bit extra like £6 and a much better drive :-)

i still wouldn't use them even having learnt that "The failure rate of Hitatchi drives was the best of the top five drive manufacturers in 2005"

but good luck though :)

:-D:-D

This deal is still on and not expired, I'd rather get the Samsung 1TB, I already have one.

Deathstar - Had one and it died of the click of death.
#18
Just bought a 1TB Western Digital Black and it's well worth the price....I paid £77 plus VAT with my free delivery from Scan......well worth the extra IMO.
#19
Hitachi's DeathStar reputation was deserved a few years back, but they're fine now. I don't think one manufacturer is significantly more reliable than another anymore.

I would disagree with that, I personally would not touch anything other than Seagate.

Based on? There's a lot of wild personal preference with hard drives these days, people saying "I woudn't touch XYZ" based the odd drive they've had fail during personal use.

I use 6x 750GB Seagate's in my TV server and 3x 1TB Samsung's in another machine along with dozens of Maxtors around the house. The only failure I've had in the last 9-10 years is a single Seagate Barracuda.

Stock: (14 in stock)

Someone unexpire this.
#23
Thanks, picked one up, I've recently got in to photography and have a stupid amount of pics on my existing drive.
#24
yayy! Under 7p per gig, finally
#25
I bought an samsung spinpoint f1 1tb and its the best drive ive used, very fast! scores 5.9 in vista compared to my old hitachi deskstar 400gb which scored 5.5

the spinpoint f1 is only around £70 from ebuyer etc...
#26
people need to realise that hard drives really are hit and miss. I have a 750GB WD here that died 1 week after purchase, did i send it back no would i buy WD again? Yes if the price was right!

Until SSD storage becomes more accessible reliability will still fluctuate irrespective of the manufacturer.

You could spend £120 on a drive and it still breaks but does it make you feel better that you are only one of 8/100 people that it did break oN!

MY RANT OVER!

Pizzzz
#27
Hmm I guess that hard drives seem hit and miss.
I'd say the deal is hot.
I personally wouldn't touch Maxtors...we've had loads that died on us in various workstations and servers after a few months or years. They've been taken over by Seagate now...hopefully they've improved...

Seagates are the current problem drives, which is probably why Seagate has reduced the guarantee on its consumer drives from five to three years. The 1.5TB Barracuda seems to be the one to avoid at the moment.

I inherited two IBM Deathstars that duly died. Apart from them, all others had been golden - Quantum Fireballs, Conners, Toshibas, Hitachis. Even Maxtors. I recently had a WD replaced under warranty after it started posting SMART failures. Otherwise, I don't get to worked up about perceived reliability of brands. There is not much between any of them.
#29
Could someone in the know please tell me how much space you'd actually get post-format for 1TB, sorry if it's already been mentioned I did try and read the posts upto this.
I have a 250GB main drive, a 2nd 160GB drive and a 250GB external at the moment, it would nice to just plonk everything onto one drive.

Having your data on separate drives is better though in terms of prevention of data loss... Although you could use the TB drive as a backup device? Get an external caddy and only run it when backing up data to minimise the risk of failure :D

Had an old Western Digital (40GB), totally useless, whereas he 512mb (yes 512MB hard disk!) is still working fully.

Like you said it is a personal choice and I'd rather pay a quid or so more for a 5 year gurantee with a Seagate,

why is this expired? it says 20 are in stock

I did that and it failed epically. I should have bought a few Samsungs (1TB) when they were cheap 6 months ago (regularly less than £70), now the prices are closer to £80.
