Today only, have been waiting for these to come cheap again.....

unlike the one i got from Novatech these should be proper UK stock with 3 year warranty, certainly my last order for this drive was, and it seems in the more info to be the case again.

These drives are low energy usage, quiet drives

ideal for bulk storage, use in a pvr or media PC

but NOT that high performance so may not be what you want in your gaming rig.


hope this helps someone :)

Very good price for 3TB of storage, the F2's are getting a little bit long in the tooth now, latest drives are F4's, so these are two generations old.

Still a good price, though, if you don't need cutting edge performance. Heat added.

yeah i thought about getting the 2x2TB F4's yesterday for around 145 quid, but by the time i dilly dallied they had gone.

these are fine for what i need however.

I know you mean generations as in F2, F3 to F4.

But these drives are just last generation, 2009 models, they have 500GB per platter, so three platters.

The F4 has the 640GB platters and three of those for 2TB.

The F2 perform pretty much identical to the F3 5400RPM drives.

The F4 is a nice performance step up but at nearly double the price for only a 500GB increase is something you need to think hard if its worth it.

Take care if you have problems with the drive. I recently had a drive delivered from Scan, which was shown as faulty in the manufacturer's diagnostics program. To be on the safe side, I even used my camera to take photos of the error (DOS based program, so couldn't easily do a screenshot).
However, Scan told me they tested it as working, and charged 15gbp plus vat before the refund, even though I offered the photos as proof. I was told these would not be accepted, unless they showed the serial number of the drive. A problem when the manufacturer's tool doesn't show the serial number on the error screen.
In the process, I had two emails ignored before I resorted to calling them, and a promised email from a manager never arrived. I'm now attempting to get the full balance back via a chargeback. I won't be using them again.

I do think they should do more than just use Samsungs diagnostic tool.

To add my drive I bought from them in the last 2x1.5TB offer a fortnight ago was also faulty.

I sent it back and thankfully the diagnostic tool for them showed a fault, am still waiting for it to be swapped though.

Seems these Samsung drives while so cheap are going through possibly lower error checking rates.

When they work the drives are fanstic though so its worth the hassle, and especially for the price

Does buying Scansure make the returns process any smoother?

no idea mate, however, i would say, if it is true that some of these drives are a bit ropey for what ever reason, it may be an idea to do a full format from the get go when getting the drive.

it takes maybe 5 hrs but i think is worth it to make sure the drive is as it should be (even tho it is not essential these days)

I had a Samsung F1 drive fail after a year - purchased from Scan - I used the Samsung returns website and it was all very smooth - I received a replacement drive within the week.
#11
All this charging for testing of faulty goods is a big put off for me
#12
can you not just rma it back to samsung? i have done that with fualty drives in the past (WD drives) and was just as sumple as returning to an online retailer anyway, and never had a problem.

just got despatch text from scan, my 2 on their way. i quite like the updates over text.
