Is a 1TB Samsung HD103SJ SpinPoint F3 SATA-II 3.5" Hard Drive any good?

Hi

a bit of advice - I need to replace a noisy hard drive in my PC - I am going to be using for Turbo Lister (ebay) and my kids will be using the pC for gaming - SIMS , etc. I will also be using the PC as a media server to stream music and videos to my PS3 and Hi Fi

is a 1TB Samsung HD103SJ SpinPoint F3 SATA-II 3.5" Hard Drive suitable?

or is something else suitable? only want to spend a max of £50


Please do not ask too many technical questions not really a PC boffin

thanks in advance

F1 had some reliability issues but F3 seems to be well regarded.

I have had my HD103SJ since Feb 2010 and used a HD103UJ before that. The Spinpoint drives are brilliant always ranked in the top 10, when it comes to random read speeds.

Am just about to replace my HD103SJ with a OCZ Vertex 2, that should give the old PC a bit of a speed boost. 8)
