A great drive at an amazing price! Probably the best value price per GB you will find available at the moment
I have 2 of these drives (paid about £75 for this 1.5TB version a few months back) and they run about the same speed as my 1TB 7,200rpm drive does, and they are also really quiet.
Free collection from their store, or free delivery for members of the forum with 250 posts that have been registered for 90 days. For everyone else it's £4.16 for 2nd class postage which lessens the deal slightly, but even then it's still a great price!

Samsung’s F2 Series EcoGreen Drive (F2EG) is the ideal high capacity drive for green computing environments. The new eco-friendly hard drive, F2EG is designed to meet demand for high performance devices with lower power consumption. Samsung’s EcoGreen F2 makes it possible to design storage systems with the right balance of high capacity, fast performance and energy conservation. Samsung F2EG has the world’s best areal density at 5400RPM rotation speeds. High density means more bits pass under the head faster, and it improves the drive performance. Samsung employs an advanced data recording technology, which brings the next generation technology into today’s single disk platform, enabling Samsung’s new 5400RPM drives to perform at current 7200RPM drive speeds. The internal SysMark test results confirms that F2EG performs as same as 7200RPM drive speeds, and even 10% faster than other green drives.
