good price for right now but often coming up sub 40 now i think (amazon was 38.99 last week and i think ebuyer too)
you could do with editing title to say its scan and you seem to have got merchant and/or link wrong as showing as hukd

at last someone posting the "real" price for Scan goods :)
#5
ah so its 74+postage
thats even better seeing as many can skip it and its still a good price for those that cant

£74.01 for those of us who get free postage which is damn good. Also anyone who ever buys any PC components should really spend the few minutes it would take to register on AV forums, getting the necessary 20 or 30 posts on a forum that size really won't take long.

Alternatively, you could spend £64 + postage on 1 2TB hard disk, couldn't you...

Two drives rather than one might be desirable for redundancy (e.g. Raid-1, or Raid-5 with another drive) I think many would consider 2TB alot to lose in one go.

Except two drives offers better data security and the F3 is a lot faster than the 2 tb eco green drive and is suitable as a boot disk.

I believe the F4 2TB offers similar benchmark scores to the F3 1TB and is currently £70.34 including free delivery at Amazon.
#11
i bought 2 x 1TB as this is what i needed personally, if you just want a 2tb drive then of course you can get it cheaper elsewhere

Why would you when you can get 2tb inc delivery at aria for £65.00 ????

2 RAID possibilities:

Backup, so if one drive fails the other will keep your data.

Speed, as with striping you could end up with an equivalent of 2tb drive but running twice as fast. Though more open to data-loss risks.

Care to show us the benchmarks? I understood there F4 2TB drive to also to be an eco green 5400 drive.

My point is buy 2 X 2 TB instead of buying up surplus stock from these suppliers, you WILL eventually need that extra SATA controller or Bay you wasted to increase the size of your storage.

I could go into power consumption, RAID, Fault tolerance, etc but it's probably pointless and I think many a person has tried on this site before.

thanks for knowing mine and everyone elses exact needs, funnily enough ive managed with a 160gb hard drive for the last 6 years
and if i cant buy more than twice this storage half this price at some point in the next 6 years ill be very surprised.
oh and did you miss the speeds?

Good for you, 160gb, 6 years old not even sure why you would be looking at these as you are clearly a light data user.

"oh and did you miss the speeds?"

No did you? have a look at the drive specs

sorry i never aksed for drive specs i meant reality
http://club.myce.com/f138/samsung-f3-1tb-2tb-hd-tune-graph-crystaldiskmark-results-309392/

but really thats irrevevant as you advocate spending double the money.

Yes i was a light user but funnily enough you have not learned that you do not know peoples needs and that peoples needs change.

by your own argument if someone was needing 2 2TB drives then they are obviously a heavy user and why would they be looking at this? what a waste of bays that would be and it would be impossible to use external storage for data or a nas etc oh noes.

Probably theyd have enough sense to think for themseleves and not have some muppet come and dictate to them their needs.

thank you for taking care of my sanity and realising you dont have anything relevant to this deal to say.
#22
Yup I would rather go for 2x1TB than 1x2TB. Although unlikely, imagine how you would feel if your 2TB drive went up in smoke one day? Unless you'd have been backing up your 2TB drive you would be feeling very gutted.

Then again there is the argument against using two drives from the same batch in a RAID array, but I don't think this is the appropriate place for that argument :)
