Nice reminder, forgot about this, I already bought one for my Linkstation, might buy this for my PC.
#2
Says £39.00 when I add it to my basket and not £37.79?
#3
Got one from Ebuyer last year, great drive.
They'll be giving hdds away in cereal boxes soon enough.
#4
I paid a penny cheaper last week for 2 :)
#5
great find.. but im looking for the older version i.e. not the sata drives. Anyone know whre i can find a cheap and decent size hdd???
#6
why dont you want sata?
#7
good deal,
but again i have to remind u that this drive only has a warranty with scan, as do all samsung drives scan sell. they dont have the best rep for their returns policy on various forums either (_;)!
its the warranty reason that i sent mine back before xmas and bought from amazon with samsung warranty :)!
#8
thought the ebuyer offer was cheap, this is bad ass! hot from me... though still want the UJ variant from a few years back :D
#9
But the ones from amazon say they are OEM as well so would they not show out of service area as well?
#10
nope, OEM is the product type i think, eg no cables or screws or box etc. (even though they do come with crews!)
checked the warranty on my drive from amazon and it had 3 years warranty direct with samsung :)!

why dont you want sata?

Because my old dell does not have the sata connections. hence, i will need to buy a new module of that as well as the hdd. All i was to do is remove my old hdd (the computer is extremly slow now) and replace it with a new one and use the computer to print and surf the web. also i will then buy a 2tb external hdd and use it for storage.

im sure you can get sata adaptors to connect it up to ide or whatever
#13
In that case I would prefer to spend an extra pound or 2 for samsung, as I heard scan try worm out of everything, and they try charge for delivery as well if you need to take it back, I would rather not have the headache

you can get converters for a fiver, dont know if they are any good tho. you need to make sure they are going to fit in the case too, i dont think they would fit in the dell sff (small form factor) cases.
If your just using the pc to browse the web and print then just keep the current hdd (is it broke?) or buy a second hand IDE one and spend the money on the external. If you are using it to download around the clock then maybe get the SATA>IDE converter, but stil 1TB would be overkill for those purposes. no point throwing money at old computers.

Thanks for comments. The hdd is not broke, its just full of A LOT of rubbish and is now extremly slow to open programs etc. Decided rather than spend a few hundred, if i was to just buy a small sized hdd drive, enough to load on win xp (still think its the best OS) and use it for printing (printer is an old laser printer with parrallel port but is still in great working order) and buy an external drive and have it connected to the main computer permantly.

i have used the sata - ide converters and its rubbish. also i have about as much luck with computers as i have with women :) how U doin ;)
#18
If you have a computer fair of some kind that runs regularly near you I suggest picking up an entire p4 system for £30ish or you could just format the hard drive so it is no longer full of "A LOT of rubbish"

Expired, showing as £39

What's the fastest drive I could use for a boot drive to hold the operating system etc. About 60 to 100GB? I'm not atfer a SSD drive At the momment I am using a 500GB 5400rpm sata II samsung drive.
1 Like #21
Western Digital Raptor 10,000RPM would be one of the faster non-SSD drives, but if you want to boost it even further a RAID 0 setup with Raptors is rather splendid although you'll need to get yourself a decent RAID card as most onboard versions are poor.

Most SSDs are pretty nice though and 60Gb ones can be had fairly cheaply now.

For value for money which woudl be best as a boot and OS drive

1TB Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3, SATA 3Gb/s, 7200rpm OEM HDD £37.79 @ Scan

or

OCZ 60GB Vertex 2E SSD 2.5" SATA-II Read = 285MB/s, Write = 275MB/s - £89.99 @ EBuyer inc. Del.

or perhaps something like a

150 GB Western Digital WD1500HLFS VelociRaptor, SATA 3Gb/s, 10,000rpm, 16MB Cache, 4.2 ms at about £100.

Speed and value for money being the important thing rather than storage size?
#23
£40.78 Inc VAT now, still a good deal tho
