£54 delivered makes it a pound cheaper than pc world and £3 dearer than Scan

Good for peeps with SATA III Mobos for the extra bandwidth, but obviously backward compatible with existing SATA II

Not really, mechanical HDDs can't saturate a SATA III connection, especially a 5900RPM drive.
It's just a marketing tool adding SATA III to make people believe it will be faster. The only thing that will make use of SATA III is an SSD.

3 quid dearer makes it cold then.

Not sure but I bet the transfer speeds are hardly noticable between sata 2&3 on a drive such as this, total marketing gimmick imo...

Cold, 'cos it's Eclipse Computers. I bought from them once, years ago, and they never delivered. I got my money back in the end, but they never stopped spamming me with emails. I tried unsubscribing several times times, both by clickign the Unsubscribe link and by emailing them and telling them to remove me from their list, but they ignored my request each time. Eventually, I just changed my email address to [email protected] , and I probably still do get spammed, but now their sales team gets the email rather than me.

I wouldn't recommend anyone to use a company that doesn't obey basic laws.

Scan do regularly have this drive or the Samsung equivalent ('Green' slow spinning) on Today only or Super Savers for under £51 with free delivery from HeXus. Scan is top notch for service and support too.

These are good drives though, just installed a couple (from Scan) in my home server.

They are there at a premium cost, most people though (including myself) prefer using large hard drives as storage (2TB 5400 RPM I use) rather than a boot disk (I use a 400GB 7200RPM for my OS).

Agree with that.
Knightmare? Are you a Welsh dragon? :)

I agree, this company is dodgy. I purchased a HDD from them, it came DOA in the post. I paid for postage and sent it back right away and never heard from them for weeks. When I called them, they said i swapped the drive and that wasnt the one they sent me. They refused to swap or refund it and then charged me extra for testing and posting back the same faulty drive.
They are scammers and I wish i had never purchased from them! STAY AWAY and use a decent company.

Eclipse computers are dodgy and have crap customer service. It is the only place I have seen where the queues in store were consistantly bigger for the complaints and returns counter than the sales counter!

KEEP AWAY FROM THEM! Please spend the extra 3 quid if you have to avoid these cow boys!

Shame really - this is a good deal otherwise.

Eclipse Computers are terrible. I took them to court and won, they didn't even show up. The cheque arrived in the post with no apology letter.

I bought a d.o.a. motherboard, countless phone calls and the phone hung up on me several times forced me to take legal action.

Stay clear from these Cowboys.

Why is this hot?
With Scan having both this drive, and the Samsung 2TB drives for less, this seems pretty cold to me.
