Description says it all,

Decent drives, quiet and low power so ideal for a server / storage. About £2 more than the cheapest Hitachi available, but the Samsung brand has a slightly better rep.

Free cable is a 100cm Akasa AK-CB054 SATA II cable with Latch connector - Silver Clear Cable, this would cost you the difference.

would have to disagree with the samsung having a better rep. from personal experience I bought a 500gb and a 1 tb drive. Both have gone faulty and been returned for RMA. the 500gb is 18 mths old and the 1 tb is 10 months old. I have Hitachi, Maxtor and Western Digital, they are all still working, Maxtors are 6 years old.

If it was me I would plump for Western Digital, but its up to the op for his recommend, on price thats a good find but not for me. :thumbsup:

Western Digital are my first choice too, even if they do cost £5-£6 more. Lots of bods on here seem keen on Sammys though and this is the best deal I have seen for one.

Think you are lucky with your Maxtor though bud, horrific reliability rate in my experience as an IT admin / evening repair man. Hitachi haven't caused me any trouble since the old IBM models, but they haven't been too common since then so who knows.

Quick message regarding internal HDs

I've got 3 in my machine at the moment, 2 of them used for media storage etc. I want to do a fresh install of XP, can I do this, without wiping the data from HDs 2 and 3 (assuming HD1 has the windows install on it?)

Thanks

And after a new HD (a bigger one to replace the others) so hot!

I've had a load of trouble with Samsung drives in the last 2 years - 3 out of 4 have been RMA'd.

Pretty sure that if your PC has a SATA socket and a modern OS then it will support it. I use a 1TB drive as part of a Skt A file server. The SATA socket on the motherboard was one of the very first to have one, works fine :thumbsup:

The problem is that you never know whether it was a bad run or model. Is it the F1 drives you have had issuses with? They are pretty new and I haven't seen any fail yet, but I had a previous batch of Sammys that were quite prone to failure (early SATA 160GB models). Similarly I had a massive number of Maxtor 20 - 120GB IDE ones fail. Probably be another year or so before we really know which of the 1TB drives were the right ones to buy, best advice as always is to back up your data.

Steer well clear - had issues with Samsung drives a few years ago - vowed never to buy them again.

Went against my better judgment and bought two of the £70 Scan Today Samsung F2 1.5 TB drives last week - one immediatley failed the Samsung diagnostic - RMA'd it today - the other - well - I would not trust it to hold any data.

Pay a few quid more for WD drives.

I understand your POV. Even though they have a great rep I will never buy another gigabyte motherboard after having three fail over 6 months.

Pretty much everyone will have a drive fail on them though be it sammy, seagate, IBM or WD. The figure prob averages out over total returns.

Never heard of Samasung, are they a good make?

Nah, these are 3.5" rather than the smaller 2.5" PS3-sized ones. :thumbsup:

Probably already been answered, but yes you can.

When you go to install your fresh operating system, it will list al your hard drives, and their partitions, alongside the amount of memory they contain and the amount of free memory they contain. You will then have a choice to select the drive/partition you wish to install the operating system on. Choose the 1st one, make sure you format that space first and then proceed to install it.

Hope this helps.

wd caviar blacks and seagate 7200.12 are the daddys...samsung are just not worth it! you can't say they are reliable until you have used them, i've + family have used over 10 seagates in the past 7 years and none have failed...yet:)

i would suggest you do some regular surface scan tho, i found bad sectors even on seagates some time after 2 years. using things like paragon, not chkdsk.

What does "RMA" mean? :?

I've had a Samsung drive die on me after 12 months too, so I'm steering well clear too ... have decided to get a Seagate 7200.12 1tb (although was tempted to get a WD Caviar Black 1tb too). I only bought the Samsung as recommended on PC Pro, but it just not worth the hassle ...

I can't bring myself to trust Seagate anymore since they joined with Maxtor
