BUT ONLY 9 IN STOCK

Description:

The Deskstar 7K2000 hard drive delivers a colossal two terabytes of storage capacity and 7200 RPM performance in a standard 3.5-inch form factor. Now in its fourth-generation, the 7K2000 is based on a robust mechanical design that continues to set the industry standard for quality and reliability. Through a patented ramp load/unload design, data heads are moved to a ramp away from the disk where they rest during periods of inactivity. This greatly minimizes the risk of shock damage by eliminating direct contact between the heads and disks, reducing wear and heat while improving overall drive reliability and power efficiency. The Deskstar 7K2000 also incorporates Thermal Fly-Height Control (TFC) technology which uses an integrated heating element to precisely maintain a constant fly-height throughout read and write operations to enhance overall data integrity, drive performance and reliability.

No because the PS3 takes 2.5 inch drives and this drive is 3.5 inch

500 of these and you have a Petabyte :w00t:

i'd rather have 2 1tb samsung f3s but if you really need a 2tb drive seems a good price.

yeah but how many PSUs would you need to power them all?
#6
For a 2TB drive its a good price, but from recent deals I suspect 2 x 1TB drives would be a bit cheaper, and faster if you RAID 0 them.

Most people buying these would be doing so for backup storage not for a main drive.

So speed tends to be irrelevant.

It's a good price, ideal for htpc.

And those who want a single large drive for quietness and slightly less power.

With twice the probability of losing all your data! In this case, up to 2TB in one clunk of death. Magical!

I seriously don't understand how people dare suggest RAID0 when laymen might be reading. Kids, if one of the drives dies (and drives do die) you lose data for the entire RAID0 array with very little chance of recovery (without spending huge sums of cash).

RAID1, RAID10 and RAID5 are all fine suggestions as they protect you from data loss and also increase performance*.

*Disclaimer: RAID 1 has slower write but fast read, RAID10 has really fast read but slowish write and RAID5 is the slowest (still faster read than a single) but best "value". Of course this all depends on the hardware.
#11
Don't go near RAID0 unless teh only thing you do is play games and never need to save your position. I have seen RAID0 lose stacks of data and it's almost if not impossible to get back once it goes wrong and if you don't know what youa re doing the cost of getting your data back will hurt! You might end up looking at a bill for £400

OK back on topic. How much would one of these 2TB drives normally go for?

Good, but £9.95 postage is a lot.

grazie
From where? :w00t:


it will be the cr*ppy F2 model which have ridiculous failure rates and other problems. Also they are 5,400rpm, so not as good for a system drive -but fine for file storage.

And 1.5 TB is even cheaper per TB. You can get two for very little more than this offer, and with RAID they are bound to be faster, too. But if you need 2 TB in one drive, you have to pay the premium.

I suggest otherwise as don't the majority use an external drive for backups?

Yes but these are used in external Drives?
I'm currently in the dilema of wanting 2 drives for my Nas as I currently have a Qnap 209 with a 1TB F1 fitted, just temporary to get it up and running as I had this lying around ready for popping in my desktop?
The Dilema I have is that do I buy 2 x F3 1TB for around £120 or 2 x 1.5TB for around £150 or with the 2Tb drives appearing hold on till after xmas until prices really fall??

Although I'm wanting to move fairly quickly as I have a 1TB F1 in my desktop which I was going to fit a 2nd in as a Raid 1 array, this isnt for my OS as I already have 2 x 140GB in Raid 1 for the OS, but I use the 1tb for storage? I have Windows 7 ready to install but need to either pop the 2 F1's in the PC or NAS before I start?

Suggestions folks?

Why would a Wookiee, an eight-foot tall Wookiee, want to live on Endor, with a bunch of two-foot tall Ewoks? That does not make sense! But more important, you have to ask yourself: What does this have to do with hard drives? Nothing. Ladies and gentlemen, it has nothing to do with hard drives! It does not make sense! Look at me. I'm in a thread about hard drives, and I'm talkin' about Chewbacca! Does that make sense? Ladies and gentlemen, I am not making any sense! None of this makes sense! And so you have to remember, when you're takin' that walk outside the house, deliberatin' and conjugatin' the Emancipation Proclamation, does it make sense? No! Ladies and gentlemen of this supposed forum, it does not make sense! If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must buy the 2TB drive!
