£5 Discount when you spend over £150

Enter PIXmania code Pixsales095 at PIXmania's checkout.

As order will be above £150 with postage and packaging...

Yeh! :thumbsup:

3% I think as I would say it is electronics. So that would make this potentially around £20 cheaper with £5 voucher code and potentially a £15 quidco bonus.

Plus, check this out http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/42717/free-7-voucher-for-both-you-and-a-f/

If its is 2X 1TB, is it not better value to buy 2, 1TB for about £70 each??? Nonetheless this seems like not a bad deal

I don't trust Pixmania like many here. Would prefer to get 2 1tb drives from ebuyer or amazon and would be cheaper

For those who aren't aware, this uses a technology called RAID0 in order to make 2 x 1TB drives appear as a single 2TB drive. The downside to this is that if any 1 drive fails, you lose the data from both drives.

If you don't require all your data on one 2TB drive you would probably be better of with 2 x 1TB drives as suggested elsewhere in this thread.

That's no different than having a single 2TB drive, you'll still lose it all. The difference with RAID0 is that your data is striped across the drives and the speed of data read/writes is faster as the drives share the load. Of course this does not mean that other parts of the interface can cope and may even be a bottleneck. I'd be interested in the stats on this one as this is certainly true for SCSI.

If it was half the next cheapest price I would not buy from Pixmania again. Still waiting for the power lead for a TV bought 5/1/09. Took six weeks to get a refund when they posted me the wrong item three years ago.:x

The effect is the same but the likelihood is doubled. Twice as many moving parts, twice as many things to go wrong.
The average annual failure rate of a disk is about 3% per annum, which means with one of these you have a 6% chance per year of losing all your data; twice as much as with a 2TB standalone drive. This is why 4 those bay RAID0 boxes get such bad reviews, that 3% per annum failure rate translates to 12% of users losing data in the first year.
