I presume that's per platter and that there are 3 of them. Doesn't make a difference though. :thumbsup:

Just a heads up if you run into trouble with any products...

I ordered a CPU from them a few months ago and I sent the customer services an email about it as my pc has been having problems and was trying to pinpoint what it was, got no reply from these guys what so ever.

They do get nice deals on but the support sucks and the delivery is always pricey, yet still have products cheaper than other places even with the delivery added on.

I think the CPU is actually ok but I am not happy that I got no reply from customer services so will not be using these guys again.

Good luck if you decide to buy from them, ya will be fine so long as you do not have to get in touch with them.

if you had a large HD like this inside your laptop replaceing 320gb or something. Would there be any disadvantages at all? like being a bit slower if you only used some of the space, or power consumption or anything? assuming its the right size / type / same speed etc.

This drive would not fit a laptop, you would need a 2.5" hard drive for a laptop
#13
most laptop hardrives are 2.5 not 3.5 and the ecodrive 5400rpm drive runs as fast as 7200rpm drives and no there would not be any disadvantages of going from smaller to larger they actually get faster as the space goes up due to density of the platters.

This wont fit unfortunately, laptops use 2.5" where as Desktops use 3.5".


Edit, LMAO 3 answers in the space of a minute.

Wouldn't fit, unless you have a very big laptop :)
#16
my god, what a great deal :D
#17
Very tempting price!
#18
yes ok i did think of that and thats why i put sentece at end, right size/type.
i mean in general if it was a 2.5in
#19
seems like a good deal
#20
great deal,thanks.
#21
Bear in mind that these are not as fast as Samsung's F3s! Or WD's Blue drives.

HDDs are often the bottleneck in most modern PCs so if performance is a concern for you then don't compromise here.

If it's for a media PC, a storage/back-up drive or you just don't need the best performance (for this kind of money) then it's a great option :thumbsup:
#22
[QUOTE=PoisonJam]Bear in mind that these are not as fast as Samsung's F3s! Or WD's Blue drives.

The F3's are from the reviews VERY quick.
Yeah it's a good point, samsungs range is confusing, F1 faster than F2, F3 is faster than both, it's not 1-2-3, worth keeping in mind it's a speed V space faceoff. :thumbsup:
#23
they are not made for speed. 5400rpm is more than enough for storage drives, which is what these should be used for. dont worry about them not being 7200rpm because you wont notice the difference and they will use less energy and be quieter.

It is a good drive, but not quite as fast as a 7200rpm load. But assuming that you store mostly big files on it, that does not matter much. I like that it uses less power than even some 1 TB drives, so it works well without a hard disk fan.
#25
I'm waiting for sub £50 prices on 1.5TB drives as I'd like 2 in a Raid1 setup.

in the meantime my 750GB server drive will doe for storage.

Good price though
#26
Just wish i could get an external drive at this price.

The point in my post was for warning people who might not realise they're not fast drives. Most people only have and will ever have one drive in their PC.

Don't say don't worry about them not being 7200RPM drives when people might be buying them as primary system drives. There's nothing to "warn" people who might be buying them for this purpose :roll:
#28
Its a good deal but i really need 2x 2TB drives:roll:
#29
The point of this drive is its aimed at storage and not as your main drive, hence it being cheaper ,slower and more energy efficient. Whether its a good deal compared to scan will depend on you being able to get free delivery. Its easier to get from scan. but if you qualify for it from here, then its a bargain.

The F1,F2, F3 just denotes the generation of drive. If it has eco green attached to the name then its the more energy efficent but slightly slower version..

MAX.500 GB Formatted Capacity Per Disk?


They give an answer to this very question :

[COLOR="Blue"]This HDD uses 3 platters that have a maximum capacity of 500GB each, and can be paritioned to use use whole drive capacity or paritioned in any way you see fit.[/COLOR]

Hope this helps - voted hot - great deal.
Being Samsung this drive will be way more reliable than Seagate/Maxtor and Western Digital
#31
Please note that they only have 50 of these available so you will have to be quick
#32
I'm just going through check out, has this gone up in price?
#33
meh, aria. if anyone from aria comes here, please PM me and tell me wtf happened to my SD card you stole off me.
#34
Is it true the F2's are the most reliable out of the very reliable F range?
#35

It will get heavier because of the extra gigabytes :)

SIW.EXE is pretty good, free and you don't need to install it.
