interesting, I thought that 640GB was the max size for a 9mm drive. Tempted to throw my samsung out again which is just getting too hot.

Thankfully not :D - I'm hoping that 1TB model will be out there soon to purchase.

If however members are on a tighter budget (just got emailed about this) then the alternative is the Samsung 640GB SATA 2.5" Hard Disks, which is £46.85p (a saving of £11.12p and knocking off 110GB in size).

That's the one I was refering to and built into my laptop a couple of weeks ago. No worries on performance, feels very fast, but getting clearly a lot hotter than the old 120GB drive (I think Toshiba, but not sure, was there from new - Dell Vostro) it replaced.

Ooops :( ...you should post it as a deal thread as well mate :D I must admit though the 750GB hard disk has been fine for me and I haven't encountered any issues with disk I/O & heat (knock on wood).

Did post it some time ago but didn't get much sympathy or heat, people seem to be voting cold unless it's a Western Digital...
And don't get me wrong on the SAmsung, it is still working well, just buring a whole through my trousers as I type this....

That's not good - I have two of the Samsung 640GB model (one as a spare & one in an active HP laptop) and I've not encountered any heat issues with them...could it be you have a hardware fault with it? You should give Amazon UK a shout and see if you can get a replacement sent through...just a thought :).

My 640 gig 2.5" drive is cold, fast and silent, a red hot drive would indicate a fault.

I got a brand new Seagate 750gb 7400rpm drive for only a few pounds more than this last month from Scan. So this is cold to me, esp as the current main drive in this laptop is a 5400rpm Toshiba which is the bottleneck that's holding it back on the benchmarks.

Bit of a difficult one - already had the drive for 2 months or so and I am not sure if it is faulty or just developing more heat than the old one and the laptop design is maybe not optimal (or too much dust in there). When I first used it in a caddy it didn't heat up too much. Maybe I'll just take it back into the caddy and play around a bit with it to see how it behaves there...

Was it a 2.5" or a 3.5" hard disk???

Edit - See the one your talking about (Seagate Momentus 750GB 2.5" Notebook Hard Drive, ST9750420AS) but it's showing as being £71.70p now on Scan...might eventually come down again.

Probably best...if it's still playing up then it's back to Amazon UK to see if they'll get a replacement out.

Update - Price is now showing as being £53.98p and can be found on the right-hand via the "More Buying Choices" List on the product page.
