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.

2TB at just a smidge over £120? good if your looking for mass storage =)

2TB for just over £120 seems like a good price to me. I have never used an Hitachi hdd though so not sure about reliability etc. I can't believe how prices have dropped on hdds in the last 12 months.

Ok i have to be the first person to say it this time.

Wow 2 terabytes of data on a DEATHSTAR?????
#3
Pretty good price. Though some will prefer the marginally cheaper 2x1TB, for people that have limited 3.5" space, this is a very tempting offer (I paid £25 more for an external 2TB drive recently for the WDTV).

Lol i can say with utter confidence (seeing as i used to own a 70GB deathstar from yeah about 7 years ago) that these drives are nothing like they used to be! They are reliable, check the reviews and you'll see.

I think it is in reply to this deal being out of stock (the next best available - which in fairness, is still a good price in my opinion)

edit: aria are not out of stock !

That's how Aria have spelled it (though obviously incorrect)

I think having 2x 1TB drives in a RAID 1 array would be a better option at the moment.

Or 2x1.5 TB for just a little bit more money - that would be sweet!

Well, yes, I agree - that's an optimal solution. If you only have 1TB of data.

If you have 2TB of data, 2x1TB in RAID 1 is largely irrelevant!

always have 2 drives installed one for o/s and proggys and one for just data that way your covered should it pack up one morning....2tb does make me itchy thinking of the data u could loose....roll on hollogram drives...lol

I'm not sure I follow. If you have 2TB of data and separate it over 2x1TB or put it on one 2TB ... failure in any case is a problem. Hence, back it up.

Every time I see something about 2TB, people forget that those buying, are at their own liberty to back up data. The same happened a few years back when drives were getting larger "oooh ... 120GB? Pfft ... stupid idea - would lose way too much data if one of those failed". :roll:
#20
Good price for these... unfortunately the only affordable way of backing them up is to buy two of them and mirror. The best price per gb is still are 1.5tb drives iirc.

They went out of stock and then came back in stock

Plus if you want to buy more than one, then Scan is the better price.

Had replaced 2 Hitachi hdd for my Dell laptop, both broken and lost all data, now running on a WD, no problem.

I'd rather have 2 x 1TB drives.
Cost approx £50-55 each so cheaper as well.

Therefore, all Hitachi drives are rubbish and WD are perfect? Yeah, unlikely.

Yeah, I can't argue on the costs at all - but if you need 2TB on one drive, this is the cheapest way to go. I'd much prefer to back up one 2TB drive to another 2TB drive, than have to do the same with 4 x 1TB drives ...

Exactly... I think people are seriously missing the point with this (as per many deals posted really).

Have flagged for unexpiry - this is still available at this price and still in stock.

I guess someone wanted to throw their toys out of the pram.
