While hard drives are like courier companies (Everyone has a horror story about at least 1.... and at least 1 they like because it's never failed *THEM*), I might as well say Samsung are my favourite drives :)

Super price. Shame I bought the 750gb Sammy just a few weeks ago.

Great price, still waiting for the external version to come down to that price
#9
Good spot - getting cheaper all the time:thumbsup:
#10
I knew it was only a matter of time before these came down under a ton. Seems like Scan and Ebuyer like to try and out do each other on these drives on a regular basis so expect an even cheaper price from Scan in the next week or so!

Brilliant price and a good find - Voted Hot!
#11
Absolutely hot deal, great find.

I ordered mine 4 minutes ago and just received an email to say its been cancelled. One of the reasons is that it may be out of stock. Oh well....

Damnit, I just bought all my computer parts and really wanted this drive, wish it had come up last night! :(

Bought one. Heat and rep given.
#21
ps3 compatable?
#22
Externally via usb yes. If you buy a case as well...

You do realise it's far too big to fit IN a PS3 right?
#23

ps3 compatable?


lol., no , cos they not 2.5inch, these are 3.5 inch.,
#24
Got this in en email today and was genuinely surprised at the price. This is a great drive but i'm starting to worry why it has dropped so much in price so quickly.
#25

Must resist, must resist; I bought the 750GB for £80 about 3 weeks ago.

Remember there's a freeware utility "ES-TOOL" on the Samsung website to control/monitor/manage various of the facilities built into the drive - eg Acoustic Management -v- Performance. It's not necessary to use, but you could find it useful particularly if you're using the drive more for its size (on a PVR/Media store) than speed and hence are prepared for it be extra quiet.

And remember you'll need a SATA cable to connect it to your motherboard - it'll just come with 4 mounting screws and basic installation instruction leaflet. (The screws I got with the 500GB version were very round headed and I didn't notice and after carefully fitting all 4 into the detachable drive case in friend's PC, the drive case wouldn't slide back into the unit, so had to replace them all with old flatter headed ones - a few minutes of my life wasted lol.)

158 left , these will be gone by 4pm i think
#31
I'm tempted to order 5 :D

4 for my server and 1 for my media box
#32
I'm tempted to order 6; just to out-do johncas.

Its got to be the best bang for your bucks and even better being a quality high spec drive.

So 160, 200, 250, 320, 400, 500, 750, 1024 - what comes next?
#34
Am I right in thinking then that this connects via USB (if I get the sumvision caddy) and I dont need any other equipment, pci boards on my PC?

You've missed out 300 and 640 in there, and fwiw I think it's 1000 not 1024 as it's 1TB not 1TiB.:p
(See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_prefix)

Hot, Hot, Hot OP!

If you've got SATA interface on your motherboard then using this as internal drive via SATA is the simplest, but I guess you want to be able to move the drive between multiple PCs or for offsite storage etc.

So if you mean this Sumvision one for example
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/126890
then yes it should be fine as you need to look out for 3 things:
- the physical size of drive ie 3.5"
- the interface back to your PC ie it is spec'd as working as both USB 1 and 2 for connection to your PC
- compatible interface/datasize of drive = a SATA I or II drive upto 1TB in it = this Samsung drive as SATAII (ie better) and 1TB

Additionally this caddy's headline says it has eSATA. You would be better to try to exploit its "eSATA" capability which is the idea of a plug/play SATA interface similar to USB but faster. That would require an eSATA port on your PC somehow whether by a PCI card or an external port/multifunction-memory-reader (some of them have a pass through of SATA as many motherboards support hot swapping of SATA drives anyway). That could be as simple as something £4 like this:
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/124530
but I would check whether your motherboard documentation refers to hot-swapping of SATA drives and I'm not 100% sure about the design spec of the external connector on that as it doesnt mention "eSATA" and their connectors are different because: " The External connector has no “L” shaped key, and the guide features are vertically offset and reduced in size. This prevents the use of unshielded internal cables in external applications."

You would still need the external caddy to provide the DC power supply to this Samsung 3.5" drive and the eSata interface.

Finally if you're happy with USB you dont need to worry about the eSATA details I've posted; just endeavouring to make you aware you could do even better/faster.
