Is that the cheapest delivery they do? Ouch!
#2
To answer my own question...
Citylink £ 6.95
- or -
RoyalMail £ 3.99

Well that's what it said when I added it to my basket anyway! :-) Seems a good price for a 500GB drive.
#3
Plus this is a very good drive. HOT. The question is, do I really need to break the 2TB barrier?!?!

@Koma toes, It says that when you add to basket but once you go through google checkout it doesn't have the Royal Mail option, the cheapest being £8. The reason being is that the checkout basket goes on value alone, but on checkout, Hard drives go "courier" due to being a "fragile" product and they obviously don't want too many royal mail claims from "dropped" products.

Bit steep postage therefore, but the google checkout discount covers that and a little of the VAT. It's the cheapest SATA2 500gb drive I've seen at that price (delivered), or at least one from an extremely trustworthy and reputable retailer - I just got a 500GB seagate from them (sata2, 16mb cache etc) for a little more at around £70 but this was on one of their super specials deals.

Can't say offhand, but check the manufacturer's website for the 7K500 here:

Seagates are the noisiest hard drives though - I just bought one myself, but over the noise of all my fans in my games machine, it's not a real issue.

[EDIT: Wrong link, linked to the PATA by mistake, now links to the T-7K500 the SATA2]

thanks.
I think ill just go for a Samsung - they really are tops in everything they do.
#10
go for a wester digital 500 aaks

I used to say samsung but I've not got 5 of these 500aaks in my desktop and they are silent even when active :thumbsup:
#11
any links for the western digital aarks ?
#12
Wouldn't go near this, hitachi deskstar drives are terrible. Stick to a decent supplier like seagate.
#13
seagate 500gb drives are like having a boy racer sitting outside your house reving his xr3i...lol the best one at the mo is the samsung its quiet as a mouse....i fancy a 1 terrabyte myself....lol

totally agree. Segates seem like rubbish. now hitachis are said to be rubbish.
Samsung wins in my eyes.
#15
depends if you get the nice quiet seagate like mine or the noisy ******s.

they're probably still the most resilient drives out of them all apart from noise.

after my experience with hitachi i wouldn't use them again, 3 out of 5 drives dying within 6mths is a terrible ratio.
