Smoking hot deal! :D You might also want to include it has 5 years warranty (most others have 2/3 years at most) in the description :) That's the reason I bought its 500GB equivalent a few years ago.

That is what a lot of people have been saying, and is what has put me off buying the 1.5tb one at Play, which has been at £69.99 for ages, the reviews there seem ok though. I was just about to go for the Toshiba 1.5tb at £59.99, when I spotted the reviews that people had left on this site which put me of getting that. I should have got the 1tb Iomega drives they had at £45. When I finally decided to make my mind up they went to £55, and then £72 later that evening. Now it is just a waiting game.

Just a word of warning if these are like the old 250GB Free-Agents then they don't like being plugged into a POWERED usb hub, having said that it's a good price IMO

Not a problem - I have 2 plugged into powered usb hubs and they work just fine.
Also have not had click of death after owning them for 2+ years.
Please remember that those who post reviews, are mainly those unhappy with the products

don't be silly i've had seagates all my life and only 1 out of 10 failed which was unjustified as it was server class, all other mainstream ones still work fine...as i always say if a mnufacturer has the balls to offer 5 years warranty (very rare these days on hard drives) then it's worth buying...i would have one but unfortunately don't need one at this moment

Nope.

A hard drive of a different brand could die on you just as easily, but this at least offers you a 5 year warranty, and from what I've heard, seagate drives are very reliable. I have had an old 500GB version of this for almost 3 years now, and it's still working fine.

This Tesco WD £44.97 is deal is still available by the way http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/western-digital-1tb-hard-drive-44-9/757853?page=7 . Hopefully play will respond so I can make good use of my friends £150 worth of vouchers
#14
for all those worried i have got 1 * iomega and 3 of the seagates running in my server.... the server is kept runnning all night and day and there is NO clicking....... so rest assured these are a good hard drive.......

Regarding the 'click of death' stories....if you look at the Seagate forum there is a lengthy thread on the subject. However, look more closely and most of the replies are from the same 1 or 2 people, who must have some sort of axe to grind. Personally I wouldn't put much faith in their comments.

I've had 2 external Seagate hard drives (and one is 1TB), and had no problems whatsoever. I have had an Hitachi HD fail though, but that wouldn't put me off buying another.

I now never read HD reviews, I simply shop around for the best buy, and if one fails, I have a back-up and I'll get another. All HD's are likely to fail at some point is my view.

Is this a good HDD for backing up a PS3?

Is this basically good to go out of the box or does it need confirguring at all?
#18
good out of the box....
may need firmware update but thats about it......
not sure about ps3 back up........ but an excellent drive in all.....

Should be fine but you will need to format it to fat32 first.

these are nice, even cheaper than the maplins special a few weeks ago

Like Spark said, you'll need to format it to FAT32 using a software. Don't format using the windows format feature though, as that'll only give you a 32GB partition recognisable by PS3.
#22
Windows can't format a 1TB drive to FAT32 by any means can it? Unless it's creating a 32GB partition on there in Disk Management and then just formatting that.

Is this much better than the Tesco deal then? Since I would have to pay for delivery with Tesco anyway so their drive works out at £50 for me and I'm looking to upgrade my old 500GB WD external.

Yeah, that's right. I should have been clearer.

Well, it depends on what you want. Both have the same rpm, but the WD only has a 1 or 2 years warranty, while this one has 5. All hard drives have the risk of failing at some point, so I prefer a longer warranty so I could at least get a replacement for free if it fails after 2 years.
#24
Yeah I might go with this one I think since my OH is on a bit of a campaign against Tesco at the moment because they screwed her over on some clubcard vouchers and this would save me a lot of hassle at home, although Amazon offer the same one as Tesco for £53.49 but I suppose for the sake of £1.48 it's worth having the extra 3 years of warrantee.
#25
The one thing which puts me off this drive though is the auto standby mode after 10 minutes of inactivity thing and I haven't seen any reviews anywhere where they state that you can switch that functionality off.

I think it's 15 mins and I'm not sure if you can. I have a FreeAgent Classic and there was a software for this for backup, adjusting sleep-timing and diagnostic purposes. I'm not sure if there is a similar one for FreeAgent Desk, but you might want to look that up.

EDIT: Actually just found it, here: http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=fa-go-desk-xtreme-sw&vgnextoid=a8d3b5b59b7d5110VgnVCM100000f5ee0a0aRCRD.
Hope this helps :)

It's OK, I ended up getting the WD one from Tesco instead since it somehow checked out at £44.97 including home delivery so I will just need to make sure that the OH is distracted when it gets delivered on Friday. :)

Thanks though and for the record this drive does look a lot more aesthetically pleasing.

iv had a 750gb for about 2 years under 5 year warrenty, and it has broken twice (once may have been my fault) however segate have always been good at replacing it, first sending me one with an E sata port, and now have sent me a 1.5tb with Esata as a replacement... if it breaks again, mabey ill get a 2tb one!

its definatly worth getting a disk with a 5 year warrenty however i cannot really recomend this, as its bound to fail. you then have to pay the postage to seagate... spend a little more and get somthing more reliable. it will save you money in the long run.

Ive received mine this morning - very easy to set up, very quiet and fast. Ive set the standby function to never - there are various options you can choose. Im very impressed so far.
