Scan say this:

"BEWARE of Cheap Samsung 1Tb Drives - These don't format to full capacity and are REFURBS!

We sell the most wanted NON Y Version!

We are NOT that much more expensive, but what we have is Genuine Samsung NEW stock with full official warranty cover!

Remember ALL the Hard Drive brands we sell are official 3 or 5 years Maximum Warranty. Peace of Mind! "

Is this microdirect one a NON Y? :?

They have the same manufacturers code - HD103UJ

Don't know if that means anything though.

The thing I've learned about buying Hard Drives is to ALWAYS leave it until you really need them...........As even a few day's wait can save £'s !? ;-)

you can always delete some files which are not required from your old drives and keep your old drives going, and a few more days for a few more months, and keep on waiting and waiting.

buy it if you need it, i have got two hard drives, one for windows and program installations, second one for downloads and game installations.

i bought this 1tb hdd for downloads and will be using the other drive purely for games, as the games tend to run slower when downloading as the hdd is working overtime.

if i waited three days i would have saved £10, but i needed it at the time and ordered, i probably could have waited a week or two and struggled with the space and resources, and got it cheaper, but hey how long a wait is a reasonable length of time
#18
Got 1.5 tb in HDD on my PC but with backups its almost full
This is a great price for a big / quality drive
#19
Personally I would not buy a samsung HD, hard drives ae not their market. They should stick to making TV's. Just threw out a Samsung DVDRW drive, hardly used over 18mths and now ejects dvd's while still spinning and makes funny noises when trying to read DVD's.

Would not touch anything other than Seagate, all their HDs come with a 5 year guarantee.

Lol. Crazy when you think back. I remember my first hard disk cost about a similar amount, and was a mighty 20mbytes. Now I could fill that in 10 seconds of downloads, and my phone has 400x as much storage.
#21
Its all well and good buying these BIG hard disks, but at the end of the day if you value whats on them then you have to back it up to dvdr or what ever. Personaly i back up all i need to disk but some people just slap in another hard drive, if the drive fails all is lost. 1TB of data is a lot of disks.

I have 2x 200gb and prune this as needed, there is so much to loose if a drive goes down i dont see the point in such capacity.

I dont play games anymore but dont see the point of buying such big drives unless you like living on the edge and dont mind losing 1tb of data :-D

Amen to that, I'm so tempted to buy this but I still haven't got close to 50% on the 500Gig and 750Gig drives I've got at the moment!! And Murphys law says that as soon as I buy it the price will drop further!

Bargain price! Ordered one. Was so tempted to get one from Scan yesterday.

"BEWARE of Cheap Samsung 1Tb Drives - These don't format to full capacity and are REFURBS!"

What tosh, no HDD formats to it's 'full capacity'. HDD manufacturers quote the disk capacity as decimal Mb/Gb, whereby 1,000,000 bytes = 1Mb

The way the entire computing world works is binary, whereby 1,048,576 bytes = 1Mb

Samsung have always been a very good HDD manufacturer. This is very much their market. Try not to scare-monger people when you don't actually know what you're talking about.

Alsbolutely true, but often it takes more time deciding what to delete, so ends up better just buying a new drive. However now I've already got 250, 300 and 500gb drives in my machine and space is low(!) - Could archive off the 200gb to dvd's but then thats about 25 dl dvd's!! - so am tempted just to buy a 1tb to not have the hassle. I am tempted with a 1tb, just no drive bays to put it in! and not sure if Samsungs are good or not, been told they're not too reliable??

I have 5 Samsung HDD's including 2 of these 1Tb monsters and never suffered a failure. If you read some reviews, the Samsung are faster and quieter than the opposition. There are some reports of reliability issues with the drives but these seem to be on early examples of the 1Tb and such reports have dried up recently. I suspect that this is where Scan's Y moniker comes into play - early examples having a different suffix. All HDD's have some level of failure and so you need to make sure you have an adequate backup routine. Personally, I use Acronis True Image and make automated daily incremental backups to one of my 1Tb drives. If the worst happens, the drives are under warranty and will be replaced - the data is secure through Acronis.
#28
I have 3.5TB across 6 hard drives... I think I need to replace some of my 500GB ones with 1TB ones! Overall aim is to have:

5 x 1TB HDDs

:D

I took all my old drives out fitted an F1 and bought a Sharkoon Sata Quickport Pro to use the old 2x120gb & 300gb Sata externally for backups etc. Its a great bit of kit imo.

For those who are worried about having their HD fail and losing data take a look at a Drobo http://www.drobo.com They might not be cheap at £300+ but if your data means anything to you it's a small price to pay to know it can't be lost. Just bought one this week along with 2x Samsung 1TB HD's after having a 3yr old 500GB Lacie external drive pack up! As a photographer shooting about 10-15GB worth of images each week losing just one job could easily cost me more than cost of the Drobo + HD's, but I've bought it just as much to protect all the family photos taken of our 2 young kids which are priceless.

the point i was making was with regards to waiting, because prices will always come down, how long will you wait - will you keep on deleting files, or archiving, to make more space, its convenient to have a large capacity, and not filling it for a few years - if they last that long!
