Also, 500 GB Samsung HD501LJ Spinpoint T166, SATA II, 7200 rpm, 16MB Cache, 8.9 ms, NCQ, only £49.64

That's actually a worse price than this one, though. Just because it's high capacity, doesn't mean it's a good price. Also, getting two 500GB drives would be better in my opinion, as there's less chance of losing 1TB of data.

But two would use more power and have twice the risk of failure:-D. You would also need an additional free drive bay. The 750GB is the best of the 3 choices as it offers ver high capacity and a good price per megabyte. Good deal.

Depends what you want it for. For example, if you wanted to upgrade your Sky-HD box, or if you were going to put in a caddy to back up other computers. It's not allways about £\Gig .

Wow at how cheap its getting!

Can anyone recommend a good data cable for one of these?

these drives are great value at 70 quid. I bought 2 at the £80 mark 10 days ago:( these are still better value than the 1TB still per GB but 1TB has dropped big (i'd still go for the 750gb at this price though:)

Surely you mean the other way around?

There's more of a chance of losing data in raid, if one drive fails, they both do.

Either way, fantastic price and the F1 range is superb. I'm planning on either picking up 2X750GB or 2X1TB's!
#13
I paid £89.99 for this a little while ago and that was an amazing price then, this is just rediculous, im tempted to order another because its such a good deal!
#14
I got mine from Scan yesterday. Fantastic service and a superb drive. Installed great. Fast and quiet. Loads of space. I paid £73.
#15
Damn, I paid £4 more a few days ago. Oh well. =p

Voted hot for sure.

Do you understand the concept of RAID ?:cry: Explain this statement.

Huh? I didn't mean you'd use RAID. You'd just spread the data over two disks.

Voted HOT.. great drive for a great price.... been a member of AVForums for years so come in handy :)

Then you'd only have 500GB :whistling:

Which is erm irrelevant to the thread?
#22
nah get a raptor 86gb for o.s. etc and another drive with all your data on that way if u crash u just reninstall xp and the data is safe on the other drive, dont use raid 0 thats a whole world of pain.

Not in RAID 1. They'll mirror each other, so if one dies, you'll have a perfect mirror of it.

Ordered thank you!

Good find voted hot!

1.5TB of storage for £140... much better deal than a single 1TB for £130, and less chance of losing all your precious data in one shot!!

1TB drive is actually under £110 not £130 see:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/169067/1tb-samsung-hd103uj-spinpoint-f1-sa

But if you have unlimited power supply, unlimited SATA power cables, unlimited space and unlimited SATA connections then you might not have any reason to pay a little extra per GB for a larger drive.

It all depends what you want it for.:)

As for losing data - most people don't want to lose ANY data, so 2 drives = double the chance of losing data.

Its not about being "better" each have their uses. £109 for a 1TB drive is far more impressive than this, taking the RRP into consideration of said drives...

Both are pretty tidy deals.

love it! :thumbsup:

plus with lots of you assuming what others have said and others not knowing what raid is...

the original guy that spoke about 2x500gb drives did not say to raid. he just meant have two separate drives and in that case, yes it is more safer than 1TB drive ONLY if you distribute evenly and manually (which in most cases wont happen in practice).

raid 0 is more risky than a 1tb drive as 2drives act as one so twice risk but will run MUCH faster so depends if you have programs running off it.

raid 1 is the safest, you get half the risk but half the disk space as a 1tb.

seriously guys.. most of you must be really intelligent and what not but if you can't read/understand the real meaning other peoples posts ie. what they really wanted to say no matter how vague, then you will start work as a code monkey and stay working as a code monkey! communication skills is what is needed most in the IT industry and many others and that is somthing you can't buy with free delivery!

and with everyone being so astonished about the price... well, i paid £2000 for my computer in july and it's probably only worth £1300-1500 now.... cant wait till i build my next one!

Great Deal!

OP, it's £67.69 now, & link needs to be changed to the direct one - i.e. not available on Scan/Todayonly anymore.
