The price on these is dropping quicker than Paris Hiltons knickers.

Hot! (both the drive and Paris that is).

voted hot.

Im near scan today so may pick one up for my popcornhour media server which should be with me next week.

can anyone recommend a NAS enclosure, Ive been looking at synology, but I am open to other suggestions. A NAS with capacity for 2 of these would be cool, as Ive 'acquired' nearly 500gb of HD content :)
#3
I have the Synology TS-109 and it is a great bit of kit. Very feature ritch. You would obviously need the The TS-209 whitch supports 2 disks

I have been tempted to get a popcorn for a while now. Are they easier to get hold of now ?

Production seems to have increased, I waited about 8 weeks, some are now only waiting 3 weeks, but there are other media players emerging on the market, so Im not sure if I'll keep mine, Im really split about it.

I know you dont have one yet but do you know anything about the BT performance of one of these? synology is a **** BT downloader

Can anyone recommend somewhere to get the SATA cables from? The power adapter AND right angle data leads...

As mentioned already, these Samsung drives are plummeting in price so fast it's unbelievable. I was weary of getting a drive holding 1000 gig in case it went belly up, but may be worth a dabble at this kind of price!

Temp up!

With prices so low you could put 2 in RAID1 and still not be horribly out of pocket.

I hope I am able to say this here. I have used an Ebay seller called *cdl* (yes, an asterisk at either end). Good price, reasonalble postage and next day delivery.

No connection etc etc ..

Got my SATA cable from Kenable via ebay. £1.98 inc second class postage.
#12
Finally a viable alternative, in terms of its relational price to the 750Gbs! :)
#13
Haha I knew Scan would come out with cheaper price than ebuyer sooner or later (in this case it was sooner so lets hope for an ebuyer retaliation next week!)

I will defo be buying one of these Samsung 1TB drives in the near future as I cant quite afford it just yet - probably a good thing considering the price keeps dropping!

But anyway, great find, great deal (until ebuyer drop the price again) and voted hot! :)
#14
Great NAS enclosures are from QNAP

the 109 for 1 drive or the 209 for 2 drives.

Both with bitorrent support and cheaper than most other NAS.

Since when is Paris Hilton hot? She's a disease-riddled skank.

IDE interface needed isn't it for the PCH??

I have a 2tb NAS from Western Digital (called MyBookWorld II) that I use with a media centre PC. Initially I was very upset about the lack if functionality from this NAS until I found this web site (http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/), which is basically a set of hacks/tips that gives you ssh access to the NAS. If you have some Linux knowledge you should be able to use this NAS as a Linux server and run whatever you want on it beside serving your files (ftp server, http server, eMule, BitTorrent,...or any other Linux application available).

A word of caution though, although the NAS is advertised as 1-gigabit (and it does have a gigabit ethernet port), the processor of the enclosure has a maximum throughput of nearly 5 megabytes per second. it is enough to serve media (movies, mp3s,...etc) but you may find it extremely slow with things like iTunes server and if you're copying large files to/from it.

i bought the 750gb from scan, a bit of the sata connector was snapped off and they refused to give me a refund as i "should have reported a physical problem within 2 days".

mastercard sorted them out eventually, but steer clear of scan, go to ebuyer and forget the 25p.

yes IDE and sata adapters are a nightmare to fit into the PCH due to design, i love my PCH had it for just over two months now.

If you can wait the two or so weeks for delivery, then get both from here:

Should cost less than £2 delivered for both cables.:)

Just looked at my rating. If I ran around naked, would that make me a skinflint?

Hi guys, just to let you know I had to return two of these drives recently. Neither of them would format. I even left them with a technical department who confirm they were faulty and that this was a common problem with Samsung drives. I've gone with a refund. It is my belief that the reason these are getting sold off pretty cheaply.

Anyone else have this problem?

Hopefully it'll push down the price of other drives which will format straight out the box like all my other SATA drives!

ps. anybody else spotted that there are NO reviews on ebuyer for these drives, considering the price this is a bit odd....
#27
I purchased the 1TB drive with an external case and couldnt format the drive either! getting a replacement sent.

hopefully it will work.
#28
Thats a seriously big hard drive. My mate at work assures me this is excellent value.
#29
Received mine two days ago. Working like a dream in my Mac Pro - already put 550GB on it, so will no doubt be buying another pretty soon :-D

Copying files to it is ridiculously fast - almost twice as quick as my previous Maxtor 250GB internal drive (a 700Mb file used to take 20 seconds, now it takes just 11 seconds!)

For anyone that's interested, once formatted this drive has 930GB of space available.
