This would be enough to store on average 1000 movies, hope that puts it into concept!lol!

It depends. If you’re the curator of the Getty image bank then you should probably look elsewhere. On the other hand if you have a 0.3MP camera on your mobile that you use infrequently then it should just be up to the job.

No, you're wrong 1TB= 1024GB, so you won't actually get 1TB you will get 0.90949TB, as manufactures say 1TB equals 10^12, but its really 2^40 bytes

^^GEEK^^

Although the info he posted is correct....yikes.... <

After its formatted you will lose about 40Gb or so too. But who cares when you got 1Tb of space!
#12
Fantastic deal!

Its not formatting, its the way the manufactures quote their space in powers of 10, while computers work in binary so in powers of 2. Formatting uses barely any space!

Err i beg to differ mate. Format in XP and you will lose some space. Try it, I know I have.
#16
i cant believe how frequently people say you "lose" space when formatting

its actually 930GB useable space

1TB should be 1024 GB
but the drives are actually 1,000,000,000,000 Bytes

then due to 1024 Bytes in a KB, 1024 KB in a MB 1024 MB in a GB

so the actual GB space is 1,000,000,000,000 /1024/1024/1024=931.3 GB


awesome price BTW

Probably the most sensible advice I had heard in ages - having a walk in cupboard full of computer bits I bought then got a new machine before I fitted them,

And there endeth your lesson in life and all things backing up.

I'd say it's a fair bet to say you still don't back up, and therefore failed the above course :w00t:

as its 3.5" and laptops take 2.5" you would need them in an external caddy

2 options 2 normal external caddies and manually backup all dat onto both disks

alternatively a NAS device such as http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD-029-BT&groupid=701&catid=14&subcat=707
which has raid derr

how many wives could i fit on this drive?
#28
So do I need any cables to connect this in my desktop. If so what types. Please be quite specific as I've never installed a new hard drive before (but I believe it's very easy and all I need is a screwdriver, power cable (?type) and ?serial ATA cable.

Thanks for any advice

Yes it is quite easy, you do need to buy serial ata cable(http://www.ebuyer.com/product/123999), or perhaps if your PSU is out of SATA power cable then you have to purchase the converter too (http://www.ebuyer.com/product/57666). or combo them together (http://www.ebuyer.com/product/123995)

watch this video if you want to know how to install them: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/130454
