Bought one of these some weeks back from Amazon for £84.99. From all the USB drives I have looked at the Samsung Story seems to be the most reliable. This is very well built at this price it is about 5.5p/GB.

Since then prices for this drive has all gone up to £89.99
£83.99 works out to be about £12.00 more than the Samsung F2 1.5TB Hard drive alone

Samsung has developed solid, reliable data storage to store your precious memories up to 1.5 TB. The STORY Station safely downloads and protects your lifetime memories - video clips, photos, music files, and important data - that are so valuable and not easily replaced. Samsung STORY Station is the best storage solution to capture and preserve your life story. Minimalism is the design concept of STORY Station. Every element - the finely brushed metal finish, simple jog dial, and red-belted cable outlets - underscores the sleek and refined style. The sharp contrast of gray and red is eye-catching and the solid, simple cover creates timeless beauty. A simple but classical jog dial functions as a power switch and reflecting LED light, hidden on the bottom, softly displays power on/off status.

The STORY Station is built to store your valuable data safely and keep it backed up using the Samsung Auto Backup and SafetyKey features. Moreover, you can protect private and confidential files and folders in the virtual drive, SecretZone, with complete confidence. Samsung's environment-friendly product supports "Power Saving Mode," which saves power by automatically going into standby mode after 5 minutes of inactivity. The STORY Station's heat dissipating design - the ventilation and the aluminum cover - prevents heat buildup and keeps the drive inside cool.

* Two ways of backup : Scheduled or in real-time
* SecretZone : Secure area for my private contents
* SafetyKey for protecting your precious contents
* Power Saving mode : Automatically going into standby mode if there are 5min of inactivity


***As smallstool has spotted, the free delivery over £75 has ended. £5.10 exc VAT is the amount they are now charging for delivery***

The second picture is the bottom of the drive where you find air vents. The brushed metal case acts like a big heatsink.

I bought one of these before Christmas from play.com when they had a £5 voucher code running on here.
I paid £74.99 then for it.
Up to now the price has never come close to that - this is the best I've seen.
The drive itself is faultless.
The LED light on the front with dimmer control is quite useful for locating the drive in the murkiness under my desk...
The SecretZone software is a bit useless really.
Basically it create a "vault" folder which you can only access by password and mounting it as another volume/drive on your PC/laptop.
I've never had a need to hide files from myself so don't really see the point.....

See I have never used SVP but before looking at buying any product online I always check with trust pilot.

http://www.trustpilot.co.uk/review/www.svp.co.uk

At first they seemed ok, until I checked their reviews. It looks like they have changed hands and they am great until you get a faulty product and then they am impossible to contact.

The product itself looks pretty good and I am after a hard drive of this size for a good price but I am dubious over using this company

Had a look at trusted pilot and the site is good although you can never tell if the reviews are from genuine people......Take the reviews for SVP from Bilal and Mostafa who both:

a) created their accounts on the same day (10 Sep 2009)

b) seemed to comment favourably on SVP on the day their account was created

c) commented favourably on iflorists

I would be a little be supsicious of comments like theirs.....:roll:

Nearly bought this from Amazon last week - opted for the hitachi on deal then at £115 (2tb).

From my research, these drives are good. Including delivery, similar price if not the same as Amazon? £89.xx?

they must have updated their site, when I checked this morning it was showing free next day delivery for orders over £75.00. I guess the free delivery over £75.00 was some sort of weekend offer then, can anyone confirm?

If there's no free P&P code you need to add £6 onto the price :whistling:

i've used svp loads in the past and they were great.

must admit i haven't used them recently because they seem to have changed the sort of stock they sell. if they have been bought over then that would make sense i suppose.

it wasn't a code it was an option when you add it to basket

Gone up £1 to £84.99+ p&p , perhaps due to everyone visiting the link?

I think the OP should amend the title as the free p&p seems to be no longer available

Still looking for one of these at the right price to go with my Sumvision Cyclone media player. Seem to be £89.99 everywhere at moment. Must admit I looked at SVP site but didn't order due to recent poor reviews.

Cheers,

Been waiting for 1.5TB's to drop for a few weeks only to watch them rise :cry:

Took the plunge this afternoon and bought one from Amazon at £89.99, when I checked on here, no mention of this deal :thinking:

Oh well, if it's as good as feedback says they are I'll be happy enough

I'm sure you will be happy with it, maybe a little slow when transferring loads of data at once but thats to be expected with all USB drives, built quality is very good and because of the design it stays cool, I read that western digital external drives has terrible built quality and dies a lot which is surprising. from the reviews I have to say either Samsung, Buffalo or Hitachi I wouldn't even bother with Maxtor(now owned by Seagate) from what I read about their drives is you have more chance of getting a faulty than a good one (but some would disagree) I also had some bad experience with both Maxtor and Seagate drives (I assume they will use their own drives in externals) :)
