voted hot!

cheapest i have seen a 1TB hard drive ever

its a shame i dont have the cash right now :/

Good find (same currently at Ebuyer, but you have to add a few pounds for postage).

I am pretty sure Amazon have made a mistake on the rotational speed, though, as the WD Caviar Green drives don't spin at 7200rpm, unless I am very much mistaken.

Still a good drive with an impressive performance at a good price. Voted hot.
#3
not bad, currently use the Western Digital Blues and they have been great.
#4
amazon have listed the 7200 and 5400rpm on the same page - silly mistake.

i have the w20ears and its fast and silent.

Ordered one, scan have drives for £43 delivered for avforums/scan program,

scan says the drive amzon scans spec are

1TB Western Digital WD10EARS Caviar Green, SATA 3Gb/s, 5400+rpm, 64MB Cache, 8ms

or you can pay about £3 more for only 640GB or £18 more for different packaging, yay for choice!
needless to say, 1.5TB drives for under £60 are better value, if you need more space.
#9
i think its 5400rpm, same drive as in the Western Digital Elements 1TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive amazon have for £53.49 which is a really good price. though it was £50 for a very short time last week. WD drives come with 3 year warranty. i think WD elements ext drive is 2 year warranty.

keep an eye on Scan Today only deals - they have been known to do Samsung 1.5TB drives for about £46

Boiling hot and ordered! Thanks

I'd still spend a couple more pounds on an F3 for performance or a few more on the 1.5tb drives doing the rounds if you don't.
#13
please suggest a good deal for 120/160/240 gb SATA hard drive for my laptop. thanks.
#14
Badmash I'd go for a Samsung m7 640 gig for 45 quid why go smaller your not saving much. Ebuyer and amazon have them at this price I got one and its excellent
#15
I'm tempted by this. Have been looking at F3 but everyone is selling OEM versions at the cheaper prices and Samsung warranty pages are clear those are not their problem if they fail. Anyone dealt with eBuyer or Scan for replacing OEM drives?
Otherwise I'll go with a pair of these.

Edit: perhaps not having read some of the problems using these with Linux - ok so there is a work around but not exactly plug and play

Linux partioning
Slow,slow,slow

I was thinking of getting a 1TB but with the 1.5TB at just 10-12 more it's probably worth getting a 1.5TB because the 2TB are still way more at around £75

1TB = £40
1.5TB = £52 (spend £12 for 50% more)
2TB = £75 (spend £35 for 100% more)

Are these advance format drives?, if so can cause issues with XP

Yes - that is the issue with Linux as well. Win 7 seems to cope.

only a problem if you are using as a boot drive - for storage its fine.
