Before you all hit Cold on this one, this drive is part of Seagate's new 7200.11 line, featuring double the built-in cache of previous drives posted here, and sustained read speeds of 105MB/s, up from 75MB/s, making it an excellent choice for the terminally impatient.

This is the lowest price around for the drive at the moment. Take the free shipping - eBuyer are currently aiming to get orders out of the door as fast as possible, and it should be with you in only a couple of days.

First read, this seems like a wonderful new product.

However this review http://techreport.com/articles.x/13440/15 has some interesting things to say. Read whole review for a slightly fairer overview.

Still looks like a good drive at half the cost the reviewer mentioned and I like the fact it is still very quiet too.

The review is for the 1000GB version, not the 500GB

I like that 5 years warranty on Seagate drives. Amazing to think that two years ago I paid quite a bit more than that for a 200GB drive. A nice quiet drive like this should be good for my media server machine I'll do over Christmas, not that it needs the performance in any way.

I seem to remember paying almost £300 about 15 years ago for a 3GB drive. You youngsters do know how easy you have it:)

I'm not that young - I once paid >£200 for a 200MB hard drive! Of course the OS only took up 4MB back then.

Don't think that would get a hot rating these days somehow.

Good price for a decent drive, but I wouldn't stand by the specs posted for it, its an average drive for a decent price and not the 'wonder' drive Seagate said it would be. The 7200.10 would still be my choice over it..

I ordered 4 of these last week. Read the following in depth review:

"for the most part, Seagate can deliver much of the same experience of a 10K RPM hard disk at a much lower price per GB and with much friendlier environmental aspects (noise/heat)"

Hi

Nice spec drive for the money. I have the older series and they run very nicely.

I paid £180 for 4x1Mb simms.

Nice but the new samsung f1 drive destroys this drive i would hang on until the 500gb f1 drive is out if not get the 750gb samsung f1
#11
Got the Samsung F1 750GB, excellent drive so far.

I remember (my dad) paying this sort of money for a 16 KB ram pack for my ZX-81.

why would you recommend the 7200.10 above the 7200.11?

its a tenner difference, it has twice the buffer, it has 105mbps sustainted as apposed to ~70 for the .10, its a few decibles quieter than the .10, this thing beats the raptor in some tests!

the 7200.10 is a seriously average drive, i'd go for the wd5000aaks over that.

that said, the terrabyte drive is better, i'd call the 500gb the 7200.10.5 :)
#15
.10 averages around 60 wd aaks is around 61-63 this drive is around 84 but the f1 is around 100

£76 incl vat...as soon as ebuyer see something on here...the price inevitably goes up....lol....good marketing device Hot Deals...lol

Just for the sake of balance I would just like to add that I have the previous model to this series and the first arrived DOA from Ebuyer. Sent it back and the replacement works, but it's damned noisy. A 250GB Hitachi drive that I bought just after this is as silent as a baby.

Just be cautious. If silence is golden to you expect to have it disturbed.

Hi

Just wondering if i could get some advice. I'm currently running 2x 80GB 10k rpm Raptors in RAID 0 for my OS and programmes and have a separate WD 250Gb for storage which is full of Movies, games etc.. and so i need to upgrade.

I've read somewhere that running 2x 500Gb drives in RAID 0 would be faster than my current setup is this true.

Either way i need to upgrade what would you guys recommend i do. After selling my drives and alike i think my max budget would be around £200. I want to run a RAID 0 and have one separate drive for storage as now. Would you guys recommend i do.

Also i've alway bought Western Digital drives because they've never let me down haven't really experienced the others so cant judge.
