If you've only just registered it sometimes takes a while for the scan account to get linked to your forum membership. Try again in the morning if that's the case, if no joy give them a ring and they'll probably sort it out.

Their 3-4 day service is still free so you can get it for £65.99 delivered. If you don't already qualify for free scan delivery I think paying the extra 48p is probably less hassle.

Definitely.

Sorry for the wrong info earlier - for some reason when I added to basket the 3-4 day option didn't come up; but when I went to checkout just now it showed - maybe they don't like google chrome browser....

I did it in a day, and got free delivery same day. So not sure how accurate that info really is, or whether they changed it :|.

I've been an AV Forums member for a long time and I have bought from Scan before via that route so it must be a glitch.
Good news is that Novatech will deliver free next Wednesday.

No it isn't...
As I stated, buy directly from the Today Only page, don't click the info button.

How do you get free delivery? Comes up with £6.95 for me.
And how is it 'scam posting' anyway? Whatever the hell that means...

It was updated recently to require people be a member for at least a week, likely due to the abuse of the offer on today-only deals.

Anyone who buys this drive should update the firmware immediately before filling it with precious data:

Thanks for the info.
Looking at the hardforum thread, seems there is a temp fix for WIndows until you can update the FW -
people can just disable write cache for now. In Windows you go to System (WindowsKey+Break) -> Device Manger -> Disk Drives -> right-click each Samsung HD204UI and on the Policies tab uncheck "Enable write caching on the device" and click OK. Since these drives are fairly speedy and most people are using them for storage/archiving anyway, you may not even notice a difference with the write cache disabled.

Yup I would like to hear if anyone can suguest a caddy too.


Just got one of these from Novatech, when I booted into windows with a new F4 in my PC,this message comes up in computer management.

What option do I need to select? Drive is just going to be used for data on my win 7 PC.

MBR is fine unless you'll be creating masses of partitions :p (think you can only create up to 4 partitions on an MBR disk).

Depending on what you need, but I recommend this dual slot HDD docking station (it's USB 2 and eSATA, the latter which is still faster than USB 3):

I have 4 of these drives, ever so quiet, great performance and much prefer these over the WD green cav 2TB.

Novatech delivered mine today via Royal Mail. Was expecting Wednesday at the earliest.
Pretty good service for free delivery.
#30
Anyone got a guide on how to update the firmware on this drive??

Dont worry. After hours of trying I managed it myself.
