Voted hot, never heard of specialtech.co.uk so wouldn't order from them knowing full well eBuyer have been excellent when returning faulty items and with my other queries. There are also plenty of cheap items such as cables, cds etc. to tick the order value over to £50 for free delivery.

ive used specialtech before to buy a mouse - never had issues but wasnt high value.

ive had run ins with ebuyer before so its really buyers risk.

good idea on the filling basket to push for free delivery

voted hot, ive never heard of special tech. Ebuyer is a good company to buy from, never had any problems with them. shame its not a 32mb cache
#6
Very good deal ... I just wish that 1TB drives were about £20 cheaper at the moment!
#7
£45.81 Samsung F1 at Scan though currently out of stock so not for the impatient :p

Free delivery with AV forums but there's a bit of speculation as to whether there's a minimum spend and what that minimum spend is (£50)?

EDIT:Scrap that!

750GB Samsung F1 at Scan for £60.82 and free shipping with AV forums!

samsung F1 at scan only £45 and thats with next day delivery for those that get it its also its the F1 version this is the old one they also have a maxtor with 32mb cache for £44 so voted cold thats expensive for a old drive for those that want this dont forget to bump your order to £49.99 for free P+P instead of paying £5-6 for P+P.

just checked the maxtor and they have updated the site so you cant get to shop offers till tomorrow so its showing as £46 but for a 32mb cache its still a god price http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=774473

i ordered a 500gb F1 last night and it was a pre order but its at stage 2 of the order process which is weird as there is suppose to be no stock.
#10
I got my 500GB F1 from Scan about 2 weeks ago and upgraded from XP Pro to Vista Ultimate 64-bit while I was there.

I was upgrading from a Samsung 5400 RPM 2.5" drive (for ultimate low-noise) but I got sick of how slow it was compared to a 7200RPM desktop drive. I'm delighted that the F1 is not only fast be almost inaudible when suspended by elastic.
#11
I have this drive, and it seems to have problems during boot up quite regularly. I would return it but dont really feel like doing a complete reinstall of my OS and apps.

Apparently quite a lot of people have problems with samsung drives.
#12
voted cold from me as it's the old version, Scan have the F1 version for the same price (i can collect)
#13
voted cold since it is an old version - SpinPoint T.

The latest issue of PCPro gave 2/6 stars to SpinPoint T and 6/6 stars for the newer Samsung SpinPoint F1.
#14
i have one of these. have had for 2 months now and its just started clicking at me :|

Was just coming to post exactly that!!! It gave an awful review. Says to go for the HD502LJ instead which should cost same anyway... going to look now...

Found it at Novatech where they recommend it:

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?SAM-HD502I

Only £48.93 delivered - worth the extra £4 in my opinion for a newer faster better model.

Are Samsung drives reliable? I have always sworn by Maxtor as (touch wood) I have never had a problem yet.

No pleasing people is there? 500Gb for about £45, what more could you ask for ????

Very. I build and repair PCs in my local area and I primarily use Samsung drives for their reliability, low noise, speed and competitive price. I've never had to replace one yet but I have had to replace a Western Digital and a couple of Maxtors that died.

I have 5 Samsung drives myself, 2 of them a few years old, and they're still going strong.

All manufacturers have faulty drives. It'd be impossible for anyone to have a 100% record so you will hear stories about all kinds of drives failing. The few users that have problems are usually more vocal than the many satisfied customers and that goes for all brands and all products.

and free shipping with AV forums!



How does that work now? I used to just order stuff and the carriage dropped to zero.
Now it just sits there at an expensive price, sending me to eBuyer!
#21
I just had a check. They've updated their website and it's the first time I've used it properly since.

Seems like the free shipping hasn't been carried over to the new system :-(

Did you log in? There's no carriage charge in the checkout for me.

got the exact same one for an extra £10 about 4months ago, no problems at all.

Of course! :)

I was a bit timid with the new system in case I went too far and placed and order by accident. It seems to be only one click to order now, rather than click to see basket then the checkout page before you confirm etc. but I was logged in and I did go to the basket and saw full shipping costs.
#25
AVForums free delivery is now only above £50 (ex-VAT)

and even that might've changed now to NO free delivery.I'll check and confirm...

I thought so... thanks for confirming.

I wonder how wafflycat saw it... :?
#28
I thought that when I saw that about the program being closed that it was closing for new "members"
.

They'll be losing most of my business as they're too far away to collect and their postage prices are a bit inflated.

I don't know, unless I've done something wrong.
Here's a screen capture of the order.

there's a closed thread (by the mods) on avforums... you can read about scan accepting orders with free delivery then charging for it.

I didn't place the order, because at the moment I don't need it. So are you saying that Scan takes your order and then later charges your CC for delivery?

Edit: I found the info at avforums. Scan email you to say you don't qualify for free delivery if the order is below £50.

Its not a case of being pleased. Its a case of pointing out that for 3 or 4 more pounds you can have a much better higher performace drive. I for one think its worth the extra! :whistling:
