Cheapest around atm for a 2tb HDD with more than a years warrenty.
Tempted to go for this as a secondary drive matched up with an SSD.
Yeh its only 5400RPM, but most people goin SSD now anyway, so not bad as a storage drive.

Above also a great deal if ya need the extra software, Although not for me or anybody else that lives in Northern Ireland
due to Ebuyer charging us £10 delivery...

Yeah but that's a Seagate.
Very reliable drives but they really do run far hotter and are a bit noisier than the WD green drives.

I would rather have faster RPM

WD has better warranty and would be better for a NAS or Homeserver, in my opinion anyway.

Extra years warranty is definitely a deal sealer at this price

Good price but I will wait until they are around £65 in a couple of months.

Will this work as a backup drive for proliant as the external I have is incompatable. I can put this in an enclosure

A good drive and decent price, I have three in my Mac and one in my daughters TimeCapsule, no problems with them.

I got this for £57 around 2 months ago but this is still a very good bargain.

I'd rather have a long warranty than speed. However i have the FAEX 1TB Black caviar drive which tbh isnt very fast, at reading at least.

The 3TB version of this drive is writing at 80-90MB a second which is perfectly fine.

I don't think most people are going SSD --- I bet it's under 10% of the market.

Do they? I have the Barracuda Green 2TB and it's currently 25 degrees (keeping in mind that ambient temperature is currently 22 degrees, that's not very hot). Then again, I have a separate SSD as a boot drive so the HDD is only in use when listening to music/watching films.

Most people who buy an internal hard drive are building a PC themselves - and I bet most of those people now choose SSDs.

Doubt they only choose an SSD. SSDs are still too small and expensive, chances are they'll buy an SSD to boot an OS from to reduce boot time and then use a HDD for storing non-speed-essential programs and media-- in which case a 5400RPM drive is suitable.

Good deal but still a bit on the expensive side for me.

I paid £50 for mine ;)

But that was before the massive hike in prices - nice drive for mass storage; e.g. HTPC etc.
