your link goes to a 2tb seagate drive.

Here's the Samsung 2tb - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/190145

although it only has a 1year warranty.

How do you find out this drive comes with 1 year warranty? Can't find it from ebuyer's link.

So which would be better-the Samsung or the Seagate as there is only a couple of pence between them.

the F4EG version of the samsung 2tb will be out within the next few weeks, it uses 3x667gb platters instead of 4x500gb platters. Its faster and uses less power and will also be cheaper as it uses 1 less platter. Don't be suprised to see the F4EG under £85 when it is released.

5400 rpm though, so I'm out already.

But the denser the data on each platter, the more can be read per revolution... A 667gb platter @ 5400 rpm will likely be faster than a 500gb platter @ 5900 rpm.

The F3EG is 5400rpm too and the seagate is only 5900rpm, i doubt you'd see much if any difference in seek time, the faster transfer speeds would be worth getting the F4EG and the lower power consumption.
#13
This is very very reasonable, even at 5400rpm. I bought the Seagate one about 4-6 months ago and it was about £100. So I'm very jealous how the price has come down so much in such a short space of time.

The speed that technology advances is always good for bringing prices down :)
#14
I think the £55.99 1.5TB Samsung F2 deal @ Novatech is better unless you really need the extra 500GB.

Works out at £37.26 per TB for that one, rather than £42.51 per TB which is what this costs.
#15
Samsung last week announced a 3 platter 2TB drive with 667GB platters.

The drive will RRP about this price, but offer considerable speed increases and power reductions.

This drive will be released the first week of September.

My advice definitely wait the three weeks for this new drive.

Even cheaper still on scan today only page.

How do you find out this drive comes with 1 year warranty? Can't find it from ebuyer's link.

It's a standard 3 year warranty. I'm not entirely sure why people seem to think it's only a year. It's always the standard manufacturers warranty when bought new.

Register it on the website the day you get it to ensure you get the full warranty. I made that mistake once but thankfully found the receipt and WD extended the warranty..

Just go to the Samsung site and do a warenty check.

And enter serial number of the drive.

Some imported and OEM drives are not covered by the full retail warranty from the manufacturer, if at all.
#20
I think they are still 3 years even if an import.

I got two the other day from Novatech and one was Samsung 3 years (100) and the other was (103)

The sales page said 3 years waranty and I kept a copy.

tbh id rather have the 2x1tb drives for roughly the same price because losing 2TB of data is going to be an awful pain.

Would you not rather have 4x500GB drives, so it would be even less of a pain?
1 Like #23
Lol, I love this stupid thinking of "bigger = more risk". It's only more risk than having 2 1TB drives if you have the 1TB drives configured in RAID 1 so its mirroring the data. But I doubt 999tigger does this. Just backup the 2TB stuff on another 2TB if you really need it. Personally I can risk what I store on a 2TB.

I've just checked my pair of 1.5tb (From Scan) and it says
"Out of country" and no warranty in the UK.

Fair chance that these are OEM drives but Scan will be covering the warranty themselves and not Samsung - check the item details on Scan for clarification.
#27
I have one of these F3 2TB Samsung drives and it is great. So quiet and so much space. I would not buy any other hard drive but Samsung now. Best drives out there for sure. I'll definately be getting the new F4 drive when its released. I guess because the new drive is out soon all these ones are discounted, BARGAIN!
#28
I have 2 of these as well in seperate machines I use 1 machine for everyday use & the second is for backup of my data & serving the data to consoles around the house.

Steer clear of oem stuff on hardwarethat gives 1 year in my experience asking for more trouble than its worth.

Regarding warranty, almost without exception in the UK, the reseller warranty is only one year. [As per the norm, the Germans, oka “EU”, are making 2 years warranty as the standard for everythingsss, Ja. Ole Blighty being within the clutches of that Gin Johnnny called “Colonialism” [who had returned from his foreign sojourn], variously known as, “Royalty”, “The Establishment”, “The Chosen Few”, are spouting their mesmeric chants of, “What, you don’t need 2 years, one is more than enough, have a drink on us - and look, that devil over there, he’s the one you need to look at and btw, support the King, Country and Industry, eh? It’s good for jobs you know”. After this first year, you will have to send the drive to the manufacturer’s nominated repair facility [MNRF] for warranty servicing. In addition, should the drive be sourced from its UK distributor/s, you can return the drive to the MNRF directly during the stated warranty period. All the reseller does is to do that on your behalf for the first year - meat within reachto bite on, so to speak - not when it is “Online”.

For drives [bulk] purchased by individual resellers for resale in the UK, the balance of the warranty after the first year will be by the reseller itself [unless they are sourved from within the EU]. As such, you will have to select a responsible, capable and meat-bound reseller should you be looking at warranty after the first year. Scan is one of the better/more-juicy option here but which reseller you select, you might want to get their confirmation either on paper or on recorded evidence should you need the confidence. Trust is not the reality when dealing with a variable entity such as a human being, fairness is.

As others have mentioned, the newer generation of “domestic” hard drives with 667MB per platter are landing. Those who won’t mind the slightly riskier hassle might want to go for these. All new products need guinea pigs called “The Customer” to test out their products in “realtime”. It is a good bet that with large volume, mature-themed products, their manufacturers will not be so dumb-kum-stupid as to release a “suck it and see” product - a mesmeric, relgion/fashion-based product, why of course. Their mesmerised buyers, oka worshippers, revel in being shafted left, right and centre. Afterall, without the sensation of being abused, you won’t know what your saviour is like.
#33
good price very hot but might be wise to wait for the new generation and hopefully these will drop more in price :)

Or if not get the new generation drives as they seem a bit faster

Now same link but it turns to Seagate HD.

These come with a 3 year manufacturer warranty even being OEM.

Remember the triple platter F4 2TB is out next month. 3 platters instead of 4 should make it cheaper, and it's meant to be faster / more power efficent too!

Why is this expired? It's still available.

No its not its OOS
