Price excludes VAT & Delivery so its £90.11 + £6.79 Delivery = £98.09 (Not sure if there are any codes etc for free delivery? - There sometimes are)

Free del possible if you join hexus forums & make 20 posts.

Definitely £79.89, great price. This was a good price when it was about £86 earlier in the week.

The scan web site is a mess! Depending which way you get to the item it shows different prices. The cheapest I get is £87.87 but there is also £98.09 as Flynn Jack reported. If this is an indication of how efficient the company is, I'd stay away from them. Cold from me for those reasons.

I went straight through the link in the OP...and it added it instantly to my basket at £79.89

Blimey, I might even risk a Maxtor for that price.

Maybe not.

Do you not get free delivery? I think the usual way is to sign up to Hexus forums (someone else can probably confirm)
#10
AV forums for free delivery. 20 posts or more. Search HUKD for scan offers

Having recently had a bad experience with this company, I'd avoid like the plague!
#12
Never had a problem with scan myself. Fantastic service infact :-)

Hmm - lets see... it's an offer - that normally means it's on TodayOnly or the offers on the homepage....

(And from the looks of it... yes... it's on the home page!)

I wouldnt either! The only 2 drives I've ever had fail on me were Maxtor (one failed and then its replacement failed out of warranty). Not to mention the dozens we had fail on us at my previous job, luckily most were within warranty. Well would have been luckier if they were replacing them with non Maxtor drives :lol:
#16
Yep got mine for 79.89 delivered. Its on Tday only section, I followed the link from avforums after which youre scan account is updated to apply free delivery on all orders after you login.

Don't forget Maxtor was bought out by seagate a few years ago, so youre really buying a seagate.

Or a Maxtor:roll:
Depends which factory it was made in, and possibly Maxtor could drag Seagate down, surely depends if they have re-structured and how.

Looks pretty good to me, i went for one :thumbsup:

Comes with a 5 year warranty which cant be bad.

Doubt you'll be saying that if and when it fails with all your back ups on.
This is beyond most peoples storage needs but if you must don't forget to back up often.

Thats why i bought 2 so i could always keep a backup :whistling:

Anyway i've had Samsungs, Seagates, Maxtors and WD drives all fail in the past, there are no real guarantees whatever drive you buy.

I might be wrong but the bigger they get the more chance of tears?

Err, who cares guys. It has a 5 yr warranty.

It breaks, and provided you have not used it to stir your tea, or as a frisby, then you get it replaced.

Struggling to understand the issue here.
#25
I can speak for scan. They are by far the bestg computer store in my opinion, even if their prices are sometimes a bit high. Never had any problems, if you need a big disk then get this!
#26
I had to chime in here. I have had nine hard drives over the years. I still have six of them.

The three I no longer have were all Maxtors. One failed, replaced, replacement failed.

Then I got tempted by a cheap price and bought another one (about a year later), it ran OK for quite a while, then failed when just out of warranty.

Never buy Maxtor again.
#27
Eurgh.... shame it's a Maxtor... that's a really hot price for a 1TB drive!

Had all four Maxtor drives I've had fail, switched to Seagate and had to use the 5 year warranty THREE times during the life of one drive, so I ditched Seagate then and switched to Western Digital, never looked back :)

And that warranty covers 1TB of lost data too does it? Thought not:roll:

Shame its a Maxtor (branded) drive else I would have snapped it up. Still hot though.

Understand this point, and similar ones from others who have posted before.
Quite frankly you should not rely on any single disk based solution for any critical backups. That is pure folly.
If that is your concern, and you have a lot to lose, then you should be running a raid based backup solution (ie fully mirrored) or some other physical media - dvd,tape etc.
There is no guaranty that any hard drive will not fail on you - whatever the brand. As an IT manager I have seen many fail from various brands. I have a Maxtor drive in an old home PC and it has been spinning for years without an issue.
It is the luck of the draw - yes. This hs a 5 yr warranty. This is probably made on the same production line as similar Seagate drives - that most people don't seem to have an issue with.
Maxtor/Seagate have placed a 5 yr warranty on this - so have some confidence that they will not be inundated with warranty claims.
I may regret it - yes, but I have just bought one.

Maxtor were quality drives until a few years ago when something went wrong with quality control or design. Perhaps a new factory? This resulted in a lot of justified flack from disappointd customers and the hence the Seagate take over, whether the latter resolved the problems or affected Seagte, only time will tell. Mud and mistrust sticks.

I had 7 Maxtor drive failures with drives mostly Diamondmax, manufactured in Singapore in 2004/5, some were guaranteed 5 years and suprisingly some only 12 months.

Always check the length of guarantee and always back up.

Once bitten ( the one year guarantee),.....................................

Good price.
