I just brought one from ebuyer (prior to the HUKDS posting), in terms or GB/£ it is a no-brainer, but I had to weigh up my avalable SATA connections, and physical hard-drive slots in my PC's.
I really wanted to get the F1 1TB...........they just sound much cooler when I speak to my mates about all the "stuff" I've got d/l'd, but the 324mb platters (verses 250gb) are reported to have issues, so I went with the proportionately cheaper 750GB version..........imagine losing 1TB of HD or MP3 goodness!!!!!!!!!
Plus I can wait for supersaver free delilery (which applied to my other items).............at the end of the day yer pays yer money yer takes your choice..................but it's smokin' in my book.

...and? Still a good price for this amount of storage. Why vote cold when you can't get it cheaper today? Not las week?
#16
How do you know its DEFINATELY going to be cheaper next week?
#17

You moan if people dont give a reason for voting cold, then moan when they do.

Its a valid reason. It will be cheaper next week, so pretty pointless paying more.


I moan? Im not. Im saying why vote it cold? You can say it will be reduced by next week, but will it? No chance in that is there
#18
Buying two for my new pc thanks :)

It is a good price, but that doesnt make it a good deal. You are still paying more than you need to, unless you NEED one of these drives TODAY.

BTW, this is more per GB than the terabyte drives, another reason I voted cold.

However, I do understand your point.
#20
Thanks, i werent Moaning sorry if it seemed like it!

No worries, we are all entitled to our opinion!! :)

Given this is 8.21p per GB, please find me a TB hard drive for £82.....

#26
You are dead right - sorry, my calculations went all to pot there.
#27
Bloody GOOD DEAL!!!!

I think it would be cheaper to buy a HD rather than DVD-R's!
#28
It is a great deal how times have changed!

Well I have 12 1TB drives set up in Raid 10 so NERR

But seriously.

I just bought a 1TB drive to go with my 2 500GB's and a 1.5gb/s SATA 200GB Maxtor which I'm replacing next month with another 1TB.

I love 1TB drives, wouldn't buy a 750GB PERSONALLY but the 750GB are cheaper PPGB.

i wasnt boasting mate, just saying i lost a LOT of stuff so im making sure it doesnt happen again.
#34
Just a warning, I have ha 2 x 500gb Samsung drives go pop within 12 months. Both were less than a year old and in seperate pcs / enclosures.

They also seem to run VERY hot. OK you have warranty but its the loss of data that is the issue. I am very wary of buying samsung drives again...
#35
I think we all need to be weary about these FBD's (****ing big drives). I only have 2 x 250GB drives which store everything i have. I would really hang myself if if they went kaput.

So i think with the dawn of cheap storage, we really need to start thinking of setting up RAID arrays as standard. Otherwise it's a timebomb waiting to explode. Nothing lasts forever. It's just amatter of time before all drives fail.

EEK!

Imagine that happening to you tomorrow!
#36
I'd like to store films (x264 backups) on dvd-9's but at the moment they seem quite pricey and hdrives's are coming down in price. Looks like hard drives are the cheapest option for storage thus far:

Blue ray rewritables: £5.99 for one 25gb disc so £23.96 per 100gb!! £240 for 1Tb Plus have to buy a blue ray wirter!

From SVP verbatim dual layered (wouldn't bother with bulkpaq or the cheaper ****) are about a £1 each 8.5Gb capacity £100 for 850Gb £117.64 for 1Tb

DVD-5's wouldn't bother too much hassle splitting films etc..

This is £61.61 for 750gb so £82.15 for 1Tb although how much of the 750gb is useable? Would rather have a 1Tb for around £70-£80 :)
#37
AS people have said though you need to raid mirror 2 drives and have one for backup (Ie its redundant otherwise) if you want the date secure.

Like I said I have had 2x nearly new Samsung 500mb drives die over the last few months.

You have been warned I have only had 1 other drive fail in on me in 10 years so what does that tell you ?
#38
Well, I'm an experienced IT engineer and I have had a few problems with "home PC" RAID controllers not doing their jobs and screwing up the backup drive (and sometimes the main drive) in a RAID 1 configuration. I actually use a second hard drive and a program called "Second Copy" (look on the search engines). It's dead easy to use for experts and novices alike, although it's not a replacement for a RAID set up. If you want RAID to be reliable at the domestic level, buy an Adaptec RAID controller that's dedicated to the job.

In answer to the price per gigabyte argument, I've only just got around to upgrading my two 160gb SATA 150Mbps with 8Mb caches, to a couple of Western Digital (not a particular favourite) 500Gb 300Mbps 16Mb drives and boy, what a difference. It was like buying a new PC in terms of performance and they're very quet too, much like the Samsung's. The point is then that it's about the cache size and the throughput as well as the size of a drive when we are talking about prices on websites and comparing. You have to compare the whole spec as best you can to paint a true picture of whether something is a bargain or not. Voted hot.

Yes. The OEM version is only the bare drive without retail packing and screws.
