You can get 2 x 1tb drive for around £120. So not really that good a deal. Just remember these big drives are prone to failure so build in redundancy.
#3
Reliability (MTBF) 750,000 hour(s) .. So not really that unreliable

Redundancy suggested tho' to ensure you just don't lose LOTS of stuff..

Seagate have reduced their warranty to 3 years on this product

possibly following similar reports to this:

According to an eight-page (and growing) discussion on Seagate’s own support forum, users from all walks of computing are expressing concern over the latest Barracuda 1.5TB 7200.11 hard drive – claiming random, unexplained freezing.

Exactly what i'm looking for.

Can you point me in the right direction for such a good deal.

Cheers.

You can get 2x750 gig hard drives for £120 but thats about the best you are going to do if you want redundancy.
The cheapest 1tb drives I can see are £69 (£60 ex VAT)

That is unless alera proves me wrong (I hope they do)

Though you made need to get a mate to buy the second one for you, and postage may therefore take you slightly over £120, but it's close right ?

well more like 146.77ukp actually: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/143288

and i'd stay away from the 1.5tb seagates as they've had some seriously bad issues, and still haven't been fixed.

I got 2 x 1tb drives for around £120 and that was months ago from scan. Put them in a dual external exclosure. Looking around the prices do seem to have gone up a bit. We are splitting hairs anyway you are getting another 5oomb and seperate drives giving the ability to mirror so its not exactly the same. Well worth another £20. I wouldnt personally buy drives this big when they are this new. You cant believe the reliability stats on them either I have had loads of drives 500mb and above fail over the last couple of years within a year or so. Not with heavy use either.

From the seagate website:
"Nonrecoverable Read Errors: 1 per 10^14 bits read"
1.5 Terabytes == 1.2 x 10^13 bits

Be careful using these in a RAID system - in theory you have a 1 in 8.3 chance of a NRE during a rebuild, which could cause a brown adrenaline moment depending on how resilient your RAID controller is...

Seriously is anyone actualy going to buy these......

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/302350/1tb-hitachi-deskstar-7k1000-b-64-39/

Like I said. 2tb for £128 or 1tb properly mirrored. I actually paid less than this a few months ago for these drives !

i notice they haven't put the samsung spinpoint f1 in that comparison, which is odd as its the accepted speed king at the moment with a sustained 120mbps (i regularly get 117mbps).

the seagate shouldn't be too far behind, its rated as 105mbps iirc.

is the hitachi a 10k rpm drive or something as people seem to say it beats the raptor - although that is getting a bit long in the tooth these days.

and yes the prices are increasing due to the economic cock-up and companies putting the prices up to level out the lower vat.
#19
I had two 500gb samsung spin point drives fail within 12 months. I wont be buying anymore samsung drives.
#20
Back to £109.12 inc VAT again...
