Yes you right about that, mind you that was a Samsung drive.:)

Bought one of these less than 12 months ago for £75. If I had the cash I'd buy another for a RAID setup but alas I'm skint. Great deal. I like how the prices of HDDs have been going down recently.
#6
woahhhhh.... cheap :D
#7
Saw this earlier today and recommended to a friend - heat added!
banned#8
ordered thanks
#9
Cant believe prices on these now. Paid £1 under this price for the same drive in January - the 250gb version!

Great deal, lets hope the prices keep on falling as I plan on putting together a HTPC in the summer :)

Does anyone know whether this can be used to replace an 80Gb SATA (not II) unit in my Dell 5150C?

Seagates are noisy when idle and seeking since 2005 when they were forced to completely disable acoustic management because of a patent breach. If your PC is in your bedroom you'll love a Western Digital drive, acoustic management makes it silent. I hear Samsung AAM has improved greatly too, however in my experience WD are the most reliable.
#12
I have one of these installed and they are quite noisy when seeking. I bought it about a year ago by accident, I meant to buy the 500GB Western Digital and was suprised when this arrived but I had accidently bought the wrong one. I couldn't be bothered to send it back so I lived with it, as zebrum said the acoustic management is completely disabled, there is a tool you can use to change the acoustic management on some disks but the feature is listed as 'not present' on this disk.

That said it is still large disk and quite fast, I use it as a data disk now as it was too noisy when running the operating system off it. I would recommend a Western Digital if you want something quiet, I have had a 120GB Western Digital for several years and it's really quiet which is why I meant to order one but got this by mistake. Their Raptor series drives are also great, they are one of the fastest consumer drives on the market.

I have a Raptor 75GB for my C: and its not bad.

But every IT tech knows the best internal drive to go for, for reliability and stability is the Seagate Barracuda series.
#14
I'd disagree with that - I think WD makes the most reliable drives now

the newegg reviews of the 7200.11 aren't too favourable from a failure rate perspective ...

if you want performance, and reliability, seems the current crown goes to the Western Digital 640gb AAKS .... @ 61 quid. Reason it is so fast is that is uses 2x320gb platters :) - ordered one myself yesterday, to go along with the 150gb Raptor, and 2 x 500gb AAKSs :)
#15
I'd rather have the (slightly) faster and quieter Samsung F1 500GB for £45.77 on Scan's site. In fact, that's what I just ordered yesterday :)
#16
Samsung all the way for me too.

I have this Seagate drive and haven't been too happy with it. It runs fine, although a little noisier than my Maxtor Diamond Max 10 or two Samsung F1's.

The main annoyance though is how hot it runs. It runs about 10C hotter than my Samsungs. And 5C hotter than my Maxtor. I've even placed it at the bottom of the case where it's cooler. Makes a slight skipping sound when it gets hot which is worrying.

I currently stick with buying the Samsung's until something else comes along. They're quiet, and run nice and cool. Seem very reliable too from my experience so far.
#17
I've had 2 500GB Seagate Barracuda's running in Raid 0. I kept on getting crital error:raid access failure warnings after less than a years use but I can't be sure it was the hard drives fault. I was getting loads of freezes and strange rebots on my computer which may have caused the drives to have errors. In the end Dell replaced my motherboard graphics cards and both hard drives and it's working fine (admittedly I've only used it about 3 times so far).

PS the drives are certainly louder than a 1 TB spinpoint F1 and slower. They're also a bit louder than Hitachi Deskstar 750GB drives too.
#18
Seagate warranty is 5 years. From what I've looked at all other companies like WD and Samsung are only 3 years. I'd get a Seagate
#19
5 years retail boxed not oem.

oddly enough the samsung for the same price is -30 degrees even though they are often considered the best drives on the market .

stange world

Hear hear. I always use Seagate drives for their reliability and quietness. Every hard drive failure I've seen is always a Hitachi but 90% of the time it's a Western Failure drive.

You can still add old 'today-only' items to your basket after the day has expired - the links still work and there is a site which archives them. However, they don't show up as in stock and I've never actually tried ordering one, so not sure if you can actually get the items...
