I'll give you a hint: it's part of the British isles but you need to … I'll give you a hint: it's part of the British isles but you need to catch a ship or plane to get there

Seems to come in at £55.75 when delivery added.

Could someone tell me what PC specification is needed to power or run one of these or can they just fit into your PC improving the HDD Capacity instantly?

About 3.06 shiney pence per GB ..................... if I've done the maths the right way round.

Compare that to my first Harddrive for my old Amiga - Cost £160 for 80Mb (thats Mb - Not Gb)......


Sad git that I am I've just worked the price per Gb out for my 1st HD.

Just over £2000 per GB.

Seemed a good deal at the time...............

clever old me ordered 4 yesterday, just finished installing them in my NAS

£50.50 yesterday folks..

These are dog slow. I've got the F4. Only really useful for large file media storage.

Yep true true, very well suited for low power usage though, think NAS type usage.

As soon as its formatted it will show up as a separate drive with 1.5Tb capacity to do what you wish with, As for powering one of these they use a standard sata type long black power connector usually on any Power supply of today, you can buy adapters if you only have the 4 pin white molex type. hope that helps

These give many 7200rpm drives a run for their money due to only having 3 platters and not 4.

The f2 and f4 are different drives and have differences

Great drive, low power consumption and low operating temps

Only if you're talking about old 7200rpm drives from the 1990s.

Comparing it to modern 7200rpm and it lags behind. Look at the system boot time for example.

Performance for large file transfers is comparable though. That's why its better to use it as a media storage drive rather than a system or application drive.

Mercy, that's a lot of storage! Wonder what's going to be on them? ;-)


great price per GB but the f2's are getting shifted for the new f4eg's and are simply not nearly as fast as either those or the f3's plus you are talking like 2watts difference in power consumption
