Be wary of these drives from Samsung if you are going to put them in a NAS enclosure or use them for a Windows Home Server system... They have big issues with not appearing in the drive pool on a warm reboot.

I purchased 3 x 750gb drives and had to RMA them back, until this serious issue is sorted then I will stay clear.

For general PC use I can recommend these drives, I have had no issues with Samsung drives in the past, and £ for MB they are bang on the mark, just beware of the issue above for NAS and WHS.

Otherwise... a HOT DEAL.:thumbsup:

Not cheapest on the market scan have it for £73.90 delivered.

Fail(!!!!!!) :-)

It's amazing that we have hit the 1gb=10p mark.

from what iv read a lot of problems with samsung drives track back to quick format rather than full format when you first get the drive... if you get one definitely do the full format option

I think the probs are with this one and the TB model, so my geeky friend tells me. 320 and 500 are fine.

Does it really matter if he adds exclamation marks or not? Relax a little bit.

EDIT: Lol. Just noticed you wrote 'explaination'. That is a weird mistake.

Actually, I am fine with Scan's customer service because of just received two BNIB replacements for the things I bought 8 months ago.. :whistling:

Well, just in my opinion.

Im quite relaxed thanks, i just think it looks a bit desperate writing ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! in the title. If in every topid people put ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! it would get annoying wouldnt it? In the end even for you surely? Seems a bit desperate to get noticed, I could understand if it was an auction site or something, where you HAVE to make your product stand out, and grab peoples attention, but for this site it seems a bit unnecessary.

1. You need a power supply with a SATA plug or an adapter - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Peripherals/Cabling/Serial+ATA/4pin+Molex+to+SATA+Power+Connector+?productId=7683 or http://www.ebuyer.com/product/57666

http://www.aria.co.uk/dynres/cHJvZHVjdF9pbWFnZS53aWR0aD0yMDA=/bWFpbmltYWdlcy9DQUItU0FUQS1QT1cuanBn.jpg

2. You also need a SATA cable - http://www.misco.co.uk/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=278535&CatId=1682

http://img.misco.co.uk/images/uploadedimages/med/20070626120748.jpg

3. Finally your motherboard also has to support SATA. If it doesnt you can buy a PCI card that will give you that function, such as - http://www.pcwb.com/catalogue/item/BELSAT06 (I wouldnt suggest you buy this one, but I cant find a good price on one at the moment and just wanted to show what I meant). Try to get a SATA-300 (also known as SATA-II version) as these are faster than the older 150Mb/s version SATA.

If this doesnt make much sense, it may be better to just sell the drive on ebay or send it back and buy an IDE version that would fit your computer without any problems. Or keep it for a newer PC if you plan on getting one, as all new computers seem to use SATA now ;)

Hi Lads. Dont want to rain on OUR parade but have you seen this?

http://www.mediasmartserver.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=148

http://www.mediasmartserver.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=873

It seems that the 3 Samsung F1 750gb hard drives I purchased may have compatibility problems with the HP server....Oh Dear!

Most of the reported problems seem to be with the 1TB F1's but the second post seems to indicate that one user has a problem with a 750gb.

Did either of you buy the same? any comments?

When you get your servers up and running can you comment to us all if you have the 750gb and it causes issues with not being seen unless you do a cold boot.

Waiting with baited breath guys in case I have to RMA these drives back due to incompatability



UPDATE: I did RMA these drives after getting confirmation from tech support that indeed our fears were confirmed (many drives returned for the same issues apparently) , It seems that these drive do have issues with spin down when used in NAS boxes and WHS setups. I replaced these with Segate drives These Samsung drives are fine on desktop PC's.

So as far as i'm concerned even though they are not suitable for my server or my NAS boxes they are a BARGAIN for desktops.:thumbsup:

After doing my own search online I couldn't find anything other the same links you've provided which state that there are some problems with the Samsung drives and HP's Media Smart Server.

I'm building my own WHS system using my existing desktop system after I upgrade (Asus A8N-SLI Premium mobo + AMD Opteron 170 cpu). I've found no evidence to say that the Samsung drives cause problems in other WHS setups other than HP MSS as stated above.

Fair comment, and as I dont have recordings of the conversations I have had with Tech Support regarding this issue confirming that the drives are being returned by NAS users and HP MSS/WHS users (including myself) I cant prove anything..............so it's up to the people to pay their money and take their choice.......................simple.:thumbsup:
