Thanks for posting, welcome to HUKD :)

Good price direct from Amazon. Voted hot. Clearly says 2 year warranty as well in description so might be worth taking a screen grab of that if people are worried, as you'd expect Amazon to honour it.

don't really need 3TB, but buying a 1TB HDD will cost £50ish, half the price but 1/3 of the volumn...that's really annoying

First time it hit below 100 quid mark on a big store. I've already got one of these when it was 115 quid. I'm thinking of getting another!

Almost double the performance of a 3TB Western Digital drive:

BTW, just noticed that it says 7200.12 in product description:

Product Description
Combining state-of-the-art technology and industry-leading manufacturing expertise, the Seagate® Barracuda® 7200.12 drive—the 12th generation of this award-winning desktop hard drive family—delivers 3000 GB of high-performing, eco-friendly digital storage. Designed with industry-leading acoustics and low power levels.


So might want to be careful with this if you want the latest 7200.14 drive. But it is likely that this drive is actually 7200.14 and they didn't bother udpating the description since both drives have the same model numbers and specs on paper.

whats the different between the .12 and .14?

Rather shocked to read this 1 star review on Amazon: oO

"I paid for a brand new drive, but received a damaged old used drive. Formatted to 2.7TB under the GUI partition table, saved my IT documents on it and after a very short time I noticed complete data loss. Amazon sent a replacement, which is also a used drive

This is very current, dated 27th September.

I really think Amazon are beginning to lose the plot from what I'm reading these days on a fairly regular basis, and from very recent personal experience...

It seems to me that literally NO company can be fully trusted anymore....

The newer .14 versions use 1Tb high density platters for the first time [500Gb platters for the .12] so expected to be faster, quieter and more reliable.

From the code quoted on Amazon ST3000DM001 these should be the later .14 versions.

How noisy are these drives in comparison to green 5400's? I'm liking the price of these, but the drives need to be quiet for where they are going (current have 5x Samsung 2tb F4 and they are super stealthy).

Good price so heat added, but personally am looking for 2TB drives, as this, apparently is the max size for the infamous N40L microserver (so I've read)
Can anybody confirm this, please? Thanks
#12
I can't comment on the N40L but I've got a 4TB Hitachi drive in my N36, WHS 2011 server with no issues

Hot from me. This will be third one going into my N40L.

Thanks OP & Welcome.

Can anyone tell me the difference (if there is one) between the drive listed here and this one?

Seagate 3.5 inch 3TB Barracuda Desktop Hard Drive
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0073Q7GU6/


Yeah, I couldn't tell the difference between these two. Could it be the 1TB platters? Did Seagate make at 12th generation 3TB HDD - couldn't find it on Seagate's website.

£98.99 (This Deal)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B006KCX0UE/

£98.99 (Was £100.97 a few minutes ago) (sbrocklebank's link)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0073Q7GU6/



There isn't any difference as they are both for exactly the same drive. Scroll down to product details and you'll see it's the same Seagate model number on both listings:

Item model number: ST3000DM001

Thank you for your replies.
What OS are you using and, if Windows Home Server 2011, did you have to do any hacking as mentioned here

Thanks in advance for your advice. :)

Think I would pay the extra £2 and it get this from DABS as it comes with a 2yr warranty then.

About the 2yr warranty could seagate be changing their policy?

the comment "Attention: 2-year warranty if shipped out after 30.06.2012".
