I know that's under 4 pence per gig!! This has to be a record.

Whats the difference between F2 and F3

This is indeed a superb bargain! Page hasn't updated as yet though..

Super hot

Cheaper here, but you would need to get free delivery (active member of their forums)

Its been this price for a few weeks. Have had one thats died wuthin a few months, but putting that down to bad luck as I have plenty of samsung drives. I'm toying with the idea of another one as its the cheapest, but might go WD instead.

F3 is better than the F2 but not sure its worth another 15%. Better in terms of mildly faster i would hope more reliable and more eco efficient.

anyone know if these are ok in a readyNAS duo?

A good deal this, but I would rather pay an extra £17.54 and get the competition instead. The Western Digital 1.5TB Caviar Green has double the cache, a lower access time and a better warranty and reliability (judging from recent reviews).

Also at Scan: scan.co.uk/Pro…8ms

(I'm waiting for the WD drives to drop a little more as I need two for my ReadyNAS Duo and a budget of around £100-£110.)

I've got 2 running happily in my duo.

What is a readyNAS duo?

As its easy to get free delivery with scan, then its not better and scan have a better rep for people to deal with.

see what they come up with for today only.

Only a small point but the price at checkout is £59.90 and not £58.73, but still a good deal so ordered one :thumbsup:

did you go through the today only and did you deduct the insurance they normally attach?

Ok, got a simple question regarding this drive. Atm, I have a SATA hard drive in my PC. I noticed that newer models use SATA II, will this F2 hard drive work in my computer or will I need to get a SATA drive instead? Confused somewhat.

backwards compatible for the vast majority of cases. To cover yourself ring scan and ask them citing your motherboard or PC. In the highly unlikley even it isnt they will just swap it. Its a tiny %.

From the description - "Model HD154UI/JP1 is NOT designed to be used in Desktop but specifically made for use with Docking/Rack/Caddy Use Only, these are being sold cheap!"

What would be the side effects of using it in a Desktop? Sounds a bit strange.

I need the 2TB to come down. I can then finally raid1 my current 2TB

No such deal - Cold ! but there is one for

2 x 1.5TB Samsung HD154UI Spinpoint F2 DT EcoGreen, SATA 3Gb/s, 32MB Cache

for £110.44 i.e. £55.22 each !!!!!

Yeah. This is a phantom deal !

I used a Seagate Baracuda ST31000528AS (3yr warranty)

£57.99 @ Novatech

Whats so special about the readNas duo which people are talking about?

If that device is any good, it should be able to accept any 3.5" hard disk and run it without any problems, just as you would expect a desktop PC to be able to do.

Well its a NAS system that's gonna be on 24 x 7 x 365 so you want drives that are quiet, cool and most of all GUARANTEED for at least 3 years!

But arent ALL desktop (oem) drives guaranteed for 3 years?

Also, every 3.5" HD can be fitted into a NAS. With regards to heat and noise, all the 5400/7200 rpm drives are reasonably quiet - some quieter than others. If quiet and cool is important then why dont you guys go for the 5400rpm drives? Aria is doing a great deal on them right now.

Absolutely, you can put any old Hard Drive in NAS. Personally I went with one of the recommended drives, not the £120+ ones they were recommending but was happy to pay £10 more for one listed. At the end of the day I'm backing up data from multiple machines onto the NAS and £10 seemed a small price for a bit of piece of mind and hopefully a drive that is less inclined to fail.

The £50 drives I saw had 1 year warranties only.
