Anyone know what **LuckyDip** means?

I've no doubt it's good value but what might I be buying?

Thanks, Dio
[mod]#2
Its a feature used by Tekheads to highlight paticularly good deals, so no problem with the goods just a form of presentation.
#3
MikeT - thanks for that; I'll go ahead and order one.

Just feared it might have been something to the effect of "take your chances :-)
#4
Can somone explain to me what 'SATA' means, and how can i tell if it would work in my external HDD case i bought a while.

Or are all Hard Drives the same and its likly to work anyway?
#5
Hard drives used to be IDE (Parallel ATA)

Recently they changed to SATA (Serial ATA).

These use different connections so the newer ones don't fit onto older motherboards.

The following is pretty good:

SATA data cables are totally different to ordinary older drive cables and also the power plug is different so unless your external housing states it will take both types of drive, it wont work for you gd_miester
#7
until you mentioned Maxtor I was interested :grin:

I guess you pays your money and takes your chances!
#8
Mine takes the same connections that are used for the DVD-Rewriter Drive.

So i assume that this would mean that Sata would work for me?

Sorry if the questions sounds stupid, im clueless on this kind of stuff.
#9
Most DVD-Re-Writers on the market at the moment are standard IDE (Parrallel ATA). Given that, I don't think this SATA drive would work in your enclosure.

The link that Diodorus-siculus provided you has a very good picture that should help you understand the difference between the two:

http://images.pcworld.com/howto/graphics/115629-2206P164_1B.jpg

Serial ATA is on the bottom and IDE (Parallel ATA) is on the top. Serial ATA connectors are about 1.2cm wide whereas IDE connectors are about 4.5cm wide, as you can see.

In that case SATA will NOT work. This is an IDE connection

Weird - it shows up as £29.95 for me, plus £2.95 standard shipping.
#21
Yeah still 29.95 and 3 left in stock.

Just search for the 160gb sata you will see a few options and the one with lucky dip still at same price.

Some ppl above must have selected a different more expensive option.
[mod]#22
They have now run out of the reduced price ones but still have plenty at £34.00 including VAT which is still a good price for the exact same model.

Maybe tomorrow they will shift some stock back over to the lower price again.
#23
Good ol' TekHeads, sometimes coming up with these really good lucky dips!

Thanks Mike :)

It's great how the hard drive prices have fallen recently, even external kits, as Emma posted earlier.
#24
So should we click expired on this, or just update the price in the first post... ?
#25
[SIZE=2]Update the price, but check it out again tomorrow :)[/SIZE]

What is your PC model? Most new PC motherboards do have sata these days, you can check your manual or pop open the side of your PC and have a look for the sata ports - they are small thin black rectangular ports usually at the bottom right of the motherboard across from the PCI slots closest to the side of the case.

An easier but not definitive way is to check your bootup sequence - if you have SATA support after the normal POST screen comes you should see the name of the SATA chipset and a ctrl + key connection to enter the sata setup.

Hi thank you for your advice , it does mention SATA in setup menu default IDE/SATA

Also i checked inside my pc i think i found the 2 black rectangular port and in tiny letters it does say SATA , i have p4 ht and intel mother board .

so will this work in my PC i think i read it SATA 100 does this mean it will not take 150?

I have Cancelled my order now so i may reorder.

Will this come with a wire so i can connect it?

Sorry but i really dont know much about this subject :/
#33
Thanks MikeT - just ordered one - 1 left in stock.
#34
Hello A-n-d-y,
From what your saying your motherboard supports SATA and you should be able to add a SATA Hard Drive. From what I can tell the TekHeads deal is for an OEM Hard Drive and so won't come with a cable so you'll need to get one from them with your order.
Serial ATA comes in 2 flavours 150 and 300, but not 100. IDE, or Parrallel ATA works in 100 and 133, so perhaps you're reading what your PC is set up for at the moment if there is an IDE drive currently connected (?)

To add to what Johnmd7 said, I posted a link to a picture on the first page of this thread showing what the difference between SATA and IDE connectors look like. If you've only got the longer type connected at the moment then that might be where the 100 is coming from (Because your IDE drive will be 100).

I hope that helps.
