Samsung's F4 EcoGreen is the first drive available to feature 667GB per platter. Samsung’s F4 Series EcoGreen Drive (F4EG) is the ideal high capacity drive for green computing environments. The new eco-friendly hard drive, F4EG is designed to meet demand for high performance devices with lower power consumption. Samsung’s EcoGreen F4 makes it possible to design storage systems with the right balance of high capacity, fast performance and energy conservation. Samsung F4EG has the world’s best areal density at 5400RPM rotation speeds. High density means more bits pass under the head faster, and it improves the drive performance. Samsung employs an advanced data recording technology, which brings the next generation technology into today’s single disk platform, enabling Samsung’s new 5400RPM drives to perform at current 7200RPM drive speeds. The internal SysMark test results confirms that F4EG performs as same as 7200RPM drive speeds, and even 10% faster than other green drives.

- Capacity: 2TB
- Cache: 32MB
- Interface: SATA-II
- Spin Speed: 5400RPM
- Seek Time: 8.9ms
- Warranty: 3 Years

First time I've seen these drop below £60. Limited stock and on offer today only. Free shipping for OcUK forum members with 250 posts, otherwise £7.25.

Unless you meet free delivery requirements cheaper to buy from Amazon and arguably a better company to deal with.

Amazon

Not going to get very hot in here since for the majority of people don't get free shipping, so it's £65.99.

Cheaper at Ebuyer £64.99 and Amazon £61.23 at that price.

Very good price but, the fact that it's via Overclockers means I automatically bypass the deal due to extremely poor customer services. Like many others here I'd sooner pay a little more and buy from Amazon.

Not voting.

Only 1 per customer.

But you can put in more than one order (only feasible if you're getting free shipping, of course).
#6
Only 10 left as of 1.pm, so hurry if you were thinking of getting one.
#7
If you can get free shipping then a good deal. For the majority of us though as previously stated, Amazon seems a better bet.

I'd buy from Amazon in either case. £2 is peanuts, and more than worth it for the quality of customer service Amazon provide when things go wrong.
#9
Gobsmacked by the drop in price..how low will these 2TB's go....
#10
It's not free shipping for all forum members, you need to have either been there for a year with over 150 posts, or over 3 months with 250 posts. The deal will not be worth it in the 3 months I have to wait to get free shipping. Cold.

Went with Amazon, overchargers uk are well known for their poor service.

[Edit] Price now readjusted to £66.99.

Although previously shocking customer service, they have turned things around a lot. Not even 5% like it used to be.

I remember this place from a few years ago when their forums used to be full of very offensive nonsense from their employees. They may well have cleaned up their act by now but based on what they used to be like, I've never bought from them and never would.

I'm tempted by the amazon price though.
#18
That right? Shame on you anewbe4u !!

In August I bought one of their very expensive overclocked bundles so am now sh**tting myself in case it goes belly up!

i used to get nearly everything from ocuk, and i used to constantly upgrade, spend thousands on pc stuff... i stopped using ocuk when they had a few months where they seemed to go bad, wouldnt compensate for bad deliveries, even debated the DSR conditions lol, till in the end it felt like i was dealing with a testosterone filled teenager that had a problem with his parents and was taking it out on me each time..

Not bothered with them since.

good price, not voted, id use amazon!
#20
Showing as 66.99 inv VAT here or more with shipping.

Didn't realise ocuk did free shipping, might have to spam the forum another 70 posts to qualify only to not order from them as they are a joke. :P

How many 2 T-BYTE hard drives do you need, FFS ?

At the price shown, it was a good deal.
Not at £66+ it isn't.

This sums it up perfectly. I'm afraid it is worth paying a bit more to bypass their "customer service" and by from elsewhere.

I need 4 of these for the HP Server that was on here the other day.

You felt the need to check up on me? I come here every day and if I see anything else I think is wrong, I'd post. Also, twice I've mentioned Overclockers....

I don't think letting people know they aren't as bad as they used to be in the hope they might be able to get a good deal is something which should be frowned upon. Me being a member of a forum has nothing to do with it. I don't gain anything by suggesting people buy from there.

I already have 10 in use and need a couple more, what do you do with your internet FFS?
Some of us are heavy downloaders sucking the life out of it with our 50mbps connections!

You're a new member with a generic name, and in this thread, you're completely alone in posting anything in support of OCUK. This aroused my suspicions, which is why I googled your name, to see if you worked for the company, or were just socially attached to them. I wasn't surprised to see my suspicions confirmed, n00bs posting in support of OCUK always have some sort of affiliation with the company.

By the way, just to pick you up on the "they're really good now" message, "now" = within what time frame, exactly? Like, if I look around for consumer reviews from a month ago, am I not going to see anyone getting screwed out of their warranties, sent customer returns under the guise of new goods, or any of the usual illegal activities for which OCUK are infamous?

Yes, Usenet and a lot of torrenting over many years :)
Most of the stuff is doubled up for backup, but there are over 40 SATA discs including many 1.0 and 1.5 TB discs. I didn't realise until just adding it all up but there is over 45TB of storage!
One day I will get round to organising this massive load of crap downed over the last 14 years!

Who knows, I'm sure they make mistakes, when you do a lot of business that's likely to happen. Why don't you go have a look and see? Being a member of their forum allows me to see some things. The admission that previously they have had poor customer support and have been working on improving it. The fact that when people complain, its often sorted within the thread its self. My own experience of buying products and the support I have received.

In 7 years on the forum, I have 1800 posts, I'm hardly prolific, I have no reason to praise the company but if people can get a good deal, I'll certainly try to alleviate any fears they have, based on my own experiences.

Was a great price, ordered one earlier, never had a problem with ocuk myself with previous orders. Many of their 'great' prices aren't that great, but I thought this one was.
