5400rpm, zzzzzz.

Good enough for photos, music and movies but if you want something with a bit of kick this isn't going to be the ticket.

Still a VERY good price, so voted hot.

With the way prices are, you're generally better off having a movie/music/photos drive at 5400rpm, and a smaller but faster system drive (in my opinion).

Actually 5400rpm drives are more reliable as well they generate much less heats and noise. Perfect for media applications.
#9
Hot deal! Most drives posted are only 32mb cache - I think I might go for this - photos do take up a hell of a lot of space!
#10
Ordered 2 heat added !
#11
how many rpm? can you also add to title

4TB!!!??? wow! i bought a 1tb & finding it tough to fill
#13
Actually thats just to replace 3 & 1tb and 1 x 500gb drives which are pretty much full.

Strictly speaking I should order another 2 to stick in my external enclosure for backup.

I bought the 1tb Western Digital external drive that was £44.97 from Tesco recently posted. Would i be able to buy this and do a straight swap with the drive already in the enclosure?

So long as it is also a SATA.

As long as its sata (likley) yes. Will invalidate your warranty.

Not so fast...some external drives do not use NTFS or FAT file systems - the board has a cu down Linux variant, so you might need to format the drive somewhere in a non-Windows format. I know I had to do this for a NAS drive,when I upgraded it from a 1TB to a 2TB. And IIRC the WD USB drives will want a specially formatted disk.
#18
He clearly states he owns an external drive not a NAS and as with any external drive you can format it with whatever fs you choose.

For a couple of quid more, I'd love to know how the WD compares with the new Samsung F4
http://www.scan.co.uk/product.aspx?ProductId=39003

It's 32mb cache, but it's a new 3 platter design, so meant to be speedier anyway...

Ebuyer has the Samsung F4 2TB for £76.99 inc VAT at the moment. Faster drive than this one and I consider Samsung to be more reliable than WD. Despite being 5400rpm, the Samsung is a great performer, high data density means it outperforms many 7200 rpm drives.

Sorry I dont know anyone that would agree with you on the reliability. No way are samsung drives more reliable in my experience. I had 2 brand new samsung 500gb drives fail within 12 months a couple of years ago and would never buy another one again.

HDD cost nothing at the end of the day its the data that is valuable. In 20 years using modern pc I have never had a Western Digital drive fail (touch wood) There reliability and longevity are well documented which is why they tend to cost a bit more, samsubg are very much at the budget end of the spectrum.

The samsung drive has half the cache memory and inferior build quality and reliability,

Same speed less platters fare enough for data and gamming it will be a bit faster I am using these for media and backup, really does make no difference at all for these purposes. The 1tb samsung drives i have used recently run very very hot, no way I would buy another samsung drive anyway certain not for a £2 a drive difference !
