You should probably include delivery (£6.95) in the price - £39.79.

Other options to consider are the Seagate 32MB cache version available from Scan for £42.17 delivered (with AVForums membership) or the Samsung Spinpoint (my preference) for £42.75 (spend another £7.24 for free delivery). So this is about what I would expect to pay for the HDD. Perhaps if I were purchasing other stuff from Aria, I would consider it hot - off to check their other superspecials!

Would this be ok for a modded xbox? :?

Nope - you need an IDE PATA drive.

Good for building a RAID array as well.

I would highly reccomend the WD 640GB drive for anyone looking for a new HDD. Superfast (one of the top performing SATA drives), extreamly quiet and very green on the old power consumption.

£48.16 (if u get free shipping!)

Seagater are aweful now, get a WD instead. Not fanboy talk here, used to use Seagate all the tim euntil they moved production. Now it's just heat and noise from them.

At least you have 50% in common with them!

[seriously, I couldn't resist it...but absolutely no offence as I agree. WD are better than Seacrate these days]

Since Seagate and Maxtor joined forces I have switched back to WD disks too. WD have always been up there for quality and performance, but their early 7200RPM drives were noisy as anything (about 5-6 years ago). Glad they have that sorted now as well as really low power usage :thumbsup:

performance aside, Seagate as a manufacturer are still reliable though?

My requirement right now is for hd space to archive stuff to. So I don't care how fast or quiet or cool they are, just as long as they work when I plug them in once a month to add stuff to it, before filling it and sticking it in a cupboard. This price seems hot for that.

It comes with a 5 year warrenty, so they must be fairly reliable...
I suppose it depends how valuable your data is. I, personally would spend a little more and get a WD, or one of the new IBM drives. Either way, do a good 'burn in' test before you put valuable data on it. These things tend to break quickly if they are faulty, or keep working for years. There are good diagnostic tools for the WD or IBM drives. Havn't really looked at seagate recently. They make enterprise drives too, mostly scssi, which are very good.

Check out the reliability surveys on http://www.storagereview.com/ for different drives. (you must register to see results)

Yeah WD all the way for me :)

I always thought Seagate were better than WD.

On Aria website, under the main title it says "This 500GB Barracuda 7200.10SATA 3Gbps ...."
While in the description it says 7200.11 - 11th generation drive. Also the manufacturer code on the website (ST3500630) which sould be ST3500630AS. So it's 7200.10 not 7200.11 drive. I don't think anyone is too bothered about this. :)

Just need to check some reviews, or if anybody already owns this can give their verdict on the product, especially how noisy it is. My previous Samsung SP2504C that came with Dell E520 is bit noisy.

Thanks a lot.
