£5 cheaper than when I checked yesterday, HOT!

...but I'm still waiting until they're under £100.00, I have 4 x 2TB Samsung drives to upgrade!

You ever kissed a girl before?

:D LOL! married with 3 children, but thanks for the stereotypical geek implying reply! 2 for movies, 1 for TV shows and 1 for music, no hidden partitions :p

Before “The Flood”, Financial Famine, due to competition, was the reality. After The Flood, it became Financial Gluttony. It is as if the jokers were making up for the [past] “Financial Sins of Competition”.

Humanity/Relativity, oka Exclusivity & Division, works according to Supply & Demand whereas Divinity/Reality is Sharing & Unity. As such, ALL human activity is about Me First & Last. So long as there is monopolistic tendencies, Supply & Demand [S&D] will be the patsy used for justifying everything Of Humanity, oka Of Frivolity & Nonsense.

This cannot last because S&D is about competition – unless Monopoly is ruling. A newish slant to this game is that in big business, monopoly is about The Gang and not so much The Kid. In a flash reminiscent of a Valid Flood, The HDD Gang of Four became The Gang of Two. WD has a valid excuse but Seagate has little. Afterall, someone gottas pay for The Samsung Baby purchase and pay they do with not only the price-jackoff but with the warranty roulette too. SSD was fingered to be a potential counterbalance but not when Seagate is eyeing OCZ. This Tentacle of The Bookie, Zer Chosen Vun, truly has zero limit. Aha, one may say, wouldn’t you like to be in their shoes.

People ought to ask themselves [and not others] the psyche behind “Infinitising” – the desire to be larger, and larger. Afterall, it does not take much to overtake the desire for whores, drugs and entertainment – not when a desire has no limit because it is a thought [of The Past] – the reason why “Recreation” then becomes the byword with newer and more fanciful ways of whoring, drugging and entertaining. It will never end because of that patsy, S&D.

After all the Pros & Cons, reducing the warranty period is the biggest visible sin of them all and yet, people are still advising, “Back Up’s yer Man”. The saviours’ way of justifying [their] worship[pers]. It is benevolent to remember that even that Tentacle of The Bookie, Quackery & Handler, is forced to parrot that Prevention is better than the cure. Couldn’t Seagate make a better drive, eh? Afterall, wouldn’t you’ll be selling ‘em like hotcakes and overwhelming the competition [What Competition?] should you have a drive which you could warranty for, say, 10 years, at the price of what the competition is selling?

Realise that the duty of The Bookie is to profit from Disagreement and once a disagreement is flowing, He’s gotcha. Everytime. Like, “Bakup” vs “What Backup?”, when the reality is, “Seagate, make a technically and financially better HDD”. ‘But why should I when you boyos are buying ‘em crapola like hotcakes?’. As such, “Evil” is not in others/another because A/The Stone [Dead] has neither Rhyme nor Reason for what it does, “Evil” is when you know you should not do eet but, “What the heck”, before unzipping yer fly. Watch out, though, because someone’s gottas pays fer the baby’s upkeep – unless Progeny is merely a patsy/word for one’s whoring, drugging and entertaining ways. Just like the Famous, Fortunate and the Immortalised and their “Black Babies” – ja, zer blicker, zer better fur Zer Final Photoshoot. Do not be[come] popular, be wise and soon, Infinitisers the likes of “Seagate” will have to play The Economies of Scale [EoS] Game and not The Monopolistic Game. Afterall, The EoS is being realised by the sweat and tears of those who sin is to be born somewhere where the sun seldom shines – only to afford the whoring, drugging and entertainment of The Monopolists – thereby driving The Bookie’s Agenda, perpetual enslavement for all, regardless of The Stupidity of The Pros or the Dumbness of The Cons.
Just wondered if you believe anyone will actually bother reading that?

Voted cold, Seagate are very unreliable drives. Had my 1TB fail on me, i'd pay a little bit more to get a Samsung or an WD. Will add that their RMA service was excellent though, got my replacement out to me the same day they received the drive.

Just Western Digital now, Samsung already bought by Seagate!

I have a QNAP NAS, and a 2tb drive full of content, I want to take that out do a factory re-set and instal this and transfer all the files.

Can this be done if I put the 2TB drive in the other bay and transfer the files? never done it before.

Thanks
#2
Yes you can! Even better get 2 and mirror them!

Great price for 3tb!
#3
Ah sweet, want to reset everything. and get a new HDD, Cant afford 2 at the moment, but will buy one next month

Thanks for that
#4
That is a good price but I'm looking for an external hard drive rather than an internal. Can anyone point out a good enclosure to put this in (not a NAS enclosure though)?

Will Windows XP see a 3TB using SATA II not III??

I have one of these drives and it's great, fast load times and so far it's been reliable. Highly recommended and about the same price I paid for mine a year ago, HOT from me
#9
I hate the idea of drives this big. So much to lose if it dies. Better to have multiple smaller drives if your case allows.

Too hot/noisy for me. Hoping the green drives drop in price now...

Oh that looks good thanks. Just finding internal drives like this are so much cheaper than externals of the same size that it may be better to get this and and inclosure.

This gets said every year. Back when we went from 500mb to 1.2gb it was the same war cry. There's twice the chance of a problem by running twice as many drives in your system.

Backup is the key to everything and having a duplicate of your stuff makes sense.

Probably a good strategy as it'll reduce the risk of both failing at once, like when light bulbs used to go in the house all about the same time because they were bought and fitted around the same time.

I thought I was bad, that is obsessive hoarding :p
Hope two of those are mirrored.
#20
Hot - Lowest price I've seen so far.
I have two of these whch are quiet, don't run hot and are quick to read and write.
With XP I would stick to 2TB drives as there are limitations/complications with drives greater than 2.2TB

Its a good price, but really a 1 Year warranty

If seagate don't expect it to last longer that 12 months, why would anyone want to buy it?

Agree with above 2 comments. Seagate drives are terribly unreliable. Bought 2 500gb when they offered 5 year warranties. I've had one replaced 3 times and the other one replaced once!

I guess that's why no longer offer 5 year warranties!

Are you basing this on experience of one drive?

i ve have several samsung and all going strong even after 4 years.
ordered 3 of those bad boys. will raid 5 it, so if one goes i can recover the data.

1 year warranty says it all. cold.

given that before seagate started price fixing based on the floods, 2tb was £50-55, so a 3tb should be no more than about £80
#31
Very nice, I'm so tempted to get on of these. I will then have 4.5TB on my PC :)
#32
It's a large loss if it goes bang..... But it is a great deal. Perhaps better to have either a 1TB with important folders set as backed-up to a 250gb, or a mirrored set-up across 2 X 500GB's? I must admit I don't do scheduled back-ups, just Adhoc... if there are some good prog's out there to do it, please advise. It may well come as standard in Windows 7 anyway... Can you flag certain folders for back-up?
#33
Does anyone know of a decent deal on a smaller capacity drive of similar spec at the moment (around the 500GB-1TB mark)?
#34
This a good choice for gaming? My 300gb drive and ISP is creaking after the Steam summer sale.

That was for a 5400rpm drive. I paid £48 for a 2TB Samsung and the 7200rpm drives were about £20-£30 more.

Should be fine, SSD is usually overkill for anything other than a small boot drive or high performance apps. Most people on here would need a shedload of money to store their entire Steam collection on solid state.

I don't know about you or others but I would use a drive this size for media content storage (games, movies, music, etc.) and not to store my unique files. I don't see much point in backing up things like that. Better off keeping your unique files that cannot be re-obtained separate and backing that up to various places.
#38
Note: Also same price on aria.co.uk, with free delivery for anybody already who prefers them.

>>>Linky to same thing on Aria <<<

Lol... better than some "paid" services...

£ 0.00 - Standard Delivery - usually next working day

Yep, exactly. Got a 64Gb SSD a few months back for £80, and pulled the 300Gb from an old machine to build my gaming box.

Would probably need 1.2Tb for my steam collection now. Damn that Summer sale for wiping me out!

Just be careful of storing so much on a single drive. If it fails, which they all do eventually, then it can be a nightmare to fix everything without a backup.
