Hott but i heard their packaging is terrible for hdds

Wonder if those who complained about the packaging selected the "Amazon Frustration-Free" packaging?
#3
Scan offer is at 62 quid at the moment I think so this is cheaper even if you do get free delivery from scan
#4
At least Amazon are easy to deal with if they are damaged in transit and I wouldn't expect them to be grey market imports with any luck. Ordered two with Prime delivery, so will report back with stories of packaging on Saturday when they're delivered. Heat added.

Amazing price but what exactly is "Amazon Frustration Free Packaging"? :s

This is about the standard price now give or take a couple of quid. A good price but not really anything 'hot' about it.

This shouldn't really get this hot judging by the way this site now works. If you post the current cheapest price around (like this deal is) then you get shot down saying it's only pounds n pennies cheaper. However post .97p deals then they get mega heat. Oh yeah, sometimes depending on peoples moods.

Back to my point, a decent price for a decent HDD. Oh and queue the whingers to start about this HDD's issues.....:|

Great HDD reliable and capacious, good price too, voted HOT!

I oredered a drive from them last year, didn't choose that option, don't think it was available then anyway. Drive came rattling around in a massive cardboard box.

Ive kept myself disciplined up until now with this model, promising myself to only buy it when a certain, non grey importing seller was offering this drive for sale for under £60. This criteria has now been met. But i still have 734gb left on my current drive. So my dilemma is this. Should i buy it (although i wont make much use of it until a few months atleast), or should i buy it closer to when i'll actually need it (thus getting a newer batch/fixed firmware issues and possibly even cheaper)?

Do you have a backup of your current drive? If not the F4 would do an admirable job.

Good deal!

As soon as these hit £50 each I'm buying two and a dual HDD NAS. Will have 9.4TB then.

Buy one of these now and get the £100 cash back then buy 4 x F4s when you can afford them.

I have a 300gb external HDD (ide lol) on which i backup pictures/document/personal videos and mp3's. I havnt backed up any of my downloaded content. Mind you, this drive wouldnt be big enough to anyway lol. Thanks for the suggestion though..

Totally agree, I know it is peoples opinions but really, saving £1 on a £50.00+ item is no big deal. Tomorrow someone could come on here and post the cheapest Apple Mac and it might be £200 cheaper than anywhere else possible but it would get voted cold because of those that would say "apples are over-priced" and they just don't like them.
#16
Ordered for my new d-link NAS. Thanks for posting
#17
Tempted, but sounds like the packaging is awful from the numerous 1 star reviews...don't particularly want to gamble and get a drive that has been bashed about and that fails after a couple of weeks. And I don't want to pay £65 for 'frustration free' packaging either! Will order from Scan instead...
#18
stonking price!
#19
ebuyer is similar price also.
#20
Great price, but I like my HDD's to be in good working order when they arrive.
#21
It's definitely hot.

What's good about Amazon is that they deliver for free to most of Europe, very handy for me atm.
Ordered one, especially as I have 45GB left on my 1TB drive!!!
I hope to move it all to the new one and backup the most essential stuff onto the 1TB.
#22
I was one of the 1* review customers. 2 drive shipped in a massive box with a small piece of paper on top. No frustration free packaging option when i ordered but a very frustrating time getting amazon to even admit the packaging was an issue. I just got a refund and ordered from a retailer where the dispatch staff know what a on HDD is and don't confuse it with a DVD.
#23
Thanks, couldn't resist it.
#24
What would be a good NAS to go with this? Saw one on Ebuyer: D-Link DNS-323 2-Bay which is quite inexpensive but not entirely sure if good.
#25
2TB for £60 inc delivery...HEAT ADDED!
#26
So anyone received theirs yet? Their packaging worries me..
#27
Bought a pair mid-December for £66 each from Scan.
Good price for a great drive.
#28
Price is dropping since 3TB is on the market now and will start dropping in price quickly.

It's a very good NAS but some might consider to be a previous generation.

If your budget can stretch and you have time to set it up, then go with the HP proliant Microserver. There is a cashback deal on right now making it around 150. This is for proper server that should beat any NAS.
#31
Not sure what the "frustration free" is meant to be when OEM drives usually just come in a fold out plastic container that even a baby could open*

*Not that I would leave precious hard drives near a baby

Don't buy until you need it. By the time you've used your 0.7TB you'll probably be able to get 4TB for this much.

Were the drives broken?

Scan sell grey imports. To me, what this means is that the RMA is with Scan and not direct with Samsung. In my experience, Samsung's RMA service is class leading (the last time I did an RMA with them, the turnaround time was less than 24 hours). It makes no sense to give up the warranty support direct with Samsung, for the sake of saving £2-£5.

The only time that I would buy a Samsung HD (grey import), is if the HD was selling at a 40% discount.

This is a good price, though it is unclear as to just how bad Amazon's packaging is.
#35
this is red hot, can't have too much storage especially for those of us who just download rather than buy dvd's !
#36
why on earth is frustration free packaging over £10 more?!?!
#37
I've had 6 of these drives, 4 from Amazon, 1 from Aria and 1 from ****. 3 of the Amazon ones came well packaged in hdd cardboard boxes with foam inserts, one was in a jiffy bag. Both the Aria and O/C ones were similar, Citypack type outers encased in bubble wrap inside. All work perfectly :)
#38
Harddisk have a travel mode, until used a couple of times, they lock after manufacture. Used to be the case anyhow.
