Looks hot to me:)

Technically better value than the recent 2TB deals if you go just by GB to £ ratio.

Very nice. Just missed it, as i ordered 2 of these last Friday for my NAS and paid £73.99 each i think.

I'm still on the fence with this and the 2tb. Both great value, but will need 2 and money is a factor.

all six of my F1 and F3's have died, i wonder how reliable the F2 is.....

Hrm. I'm considering getting this, I need a new, bigger HDD but is this really the best value? If so... I'll nab it :D
#7
I'm considering this drive but I have a question, is this drive fast enough to run an OS (Windows XP) for a desktop PC or should I go for 7200rpm drive. I would rather get as much storage as possible for the money I spend but if it going to be a noticeable difference from the drive I'm currently running then I don't see the point.

Yes this will run an OS:thumbsup:

I reckon if your system system wont be intensively running games or complex software, then this would be fine.

Most people will always opt for the 7200rpm for that little bit of added performance, however insignificant or obvious it may be.

Not sure of exactly how the 5400 drive compares next to 7200 in terms of benchmarking, but i'm sure some of the techie guys/gals will chip in and help out as they always do. :)

Cost per GB of this drive is definitely best at the moment.

It will be fast enough to run an OS - but you might find it isn't the nippiest - generally I would always recommend a 7200RPM drive that is less than 500GB for an OS drive (unless you have an SSD that is of course).

Benchmarks generally seem to suggest an approximate 20% speed increase for read/write when moving from 7200RPM to 5400RPM - or 100MB/s for 7200RPM and about 80MB/s for 5400RPM

Its probably another misprice. Ebuyer will probably send out cancellation emails again lol.

I think they should start writing in their description the RPM of their drives, or the slower drives and not rely on customers already having that knowledge.

I would be getting mines from Scan as its only pennies (£70.49) more expensive in the today only section and I'm eligible for free next day delivery. The reason I'm asking about desktop use is on Scans website it states:

"Model HD154UI/JP1 is NOT designed to be used in Desktop but specifically made for use with Docking/Rack/Caddy Use Only, these are being sold cheap!"

But I could use it as storage and keep my smaller 160gb Samsung HD for the OS.

My F1 is still aliver (Touch wood). Great drive BUT it makes an unbearable wining sound in my PC and I'm going to swap it out as soon as I have the money for a non samsung drive.

Similar to me - I've had them about a month or so now having bought at £74.

They're good, bit noisier than the barracuda 500gb disks they replaced, but still quiet enough to be in the Readynas in the lounge.

personally i would not recommend anything made by samsung..poor quality products.

Not sure how that would work - it has the same connectors as normal (it would need to to be used in a dock/caddy).

IMO It will be perfect as an internal storage drive.

Never had a problem with any Samsung product I've had - what instigated your sweeping statement?
#17
My Samsung F1 750 gig just went down after a year and one month of very light use. Not impressed with the F1 drives, I believe lots of posts are on the web about them. I think the F2 should be more reliable due to the slow spin speed and lack of rants about them.

My F1 is going strong and its almost silent, but I've not got mine in my pc. I use mine alongside my WDTV Live.

I suspect that rate of failure is too high to blame on the drives.
Do you have good case cooling ? Do you stack the drives in your case, with no airflow between them ? It's likely that there's a reason for their deaths :thumbsup:
banned#20
These drives are pretty reliable.
#21
I have plenty of F1s and they havent let me down. I have the F2 and its faster and quieter than I expected. Probably not an os drive, although it will cope.

Maybe you should stay away from components. ;)

I've got 8 running in a DAS801T 24/7 and have had no problems.

none of mine (7) have died... and I would have cancelled the WD order if I'd seen Samsung at the same price.... but too late.

I rate Samsung the highest.
#24
Has the 1tb. barrier? been overcome on sky hd boxes yet & if so is this drive any good as a substitute? :thinking:

"Model HD154UI/JP1 is NOT designed to be used in Desktop but specifically made for use with Docking/Rack/Caddy Use Only, these are being sold cheap!"

It is designed to be power-saving and quiet, not for best performance. So yes, it will be a bit slower if you use it as the main system drive, but it works perfectly fine. Still lot's faster than a laptop disk...

that whining sound is not normal according to samsung - its a warning that the drive is defective (like my current F3) the only F1 that is still working after a year is the silent one i have.

i've used mainly F1's in three pc's and a mate has had a couple too, all but one are dead within a year.

its not a cooling issue - i've got multiple 120-250mm fans and full towers like xclio's and antec900's.

i've even had drives fail that are the only drive in the system, so its not stacking either.

i'm going back to western digital, had enough of samsung tripe even though they are faster.

I want a 1TB drive for my Sky box - any recommendations?
