Good price for a 1.5tb drive

28 Comments

true good price, pay about £10 to £15 more and get an extra 500GB. Paid like £100 for this myself a year ago.

Bought the one from scan for £46 last week. Expired now.

Slightly more at 53.00 from scan in case it's useful for anyone wishing to collect etc.

Good price.

...or for those of us with lifetime free delivery!

I paid £250+ for a 128GB SSD and these sorts of deals make one rethink their purchase. Although the speed of the SSD is immense.

With todys prices, then I dont think its anything special.

with an ext case this easily a bargin

Yeah I am gonna setup my laptop with SSD... it just makes all the difference.

Don't forget Quidco!

Seagate not such a good brand anymore and lots of these types of comments posted on other HDD threads - Just thought id post

Samsung HDD's though seem to be the sizzle

Seagate is not a good brand? I think I'd struggle to agree with that....

That was a different drive - Samsung vs Seagate.

I too bought the previous one...

Poppycock, Samsungs have been reknown for reliability for ages, perhaps someone can tell me why mine died a very clicky death yet I have Maxtor (reknown as being v.unreliable) thats still going strong after 8yrs of punishment?!?!?

Point being: EVERYONE "knows someone" who has had a drive fail, thats does not mean the whole brand is flawed!!

Struggle then lol, their quality has gone right down hill. I have experienced their drives and their high failure rate on larger drives as have thousands of others, just look on their own forum!

You just cannot beat Western Digital for quality. If Carlsberg made hard drives, they still wouldn't probably be the best in the world cos WD would be

I must say I love these X brand is better than Y brand, since they tend to be rooted in ones own failure. I had two ABIT mobo's fail on me back in the day never bought ABIT again but before they went belly up they seemed to be highly favoured by the over clocking community. Horses for courses, personally I stick with WD, never had a problem with them ever.

Well time bargain - ordered. From my own experience Seagate are fine. Have had a WD hard drive fail on me though...

Heat added. And Samsung are the quietest.

I have a 1TB drive and still got 70% on it free. Guess I dont need upgrading anytime soon.

yeah this about somes it up! All drives fail, just depends on the percentage that do. Personally IMO seagate is the best, samsung is just too new on the market. Seagate did have a bad spot recently, and even my HD failed, but they picked it up, updated f/w and returned it, zero data loss.

WD are also a great manufacturer and would only ever buy either Seagate/WD simply because of my personal experience with other drives. The last time I bought anything else was years ago and I suffered from the "click of death" problem. I realise that in modern times that hard drives are greatly improved...but still..it's preference.

Bargain!

All drives WILL die eventually, it's just that some die sooner and have a higher failure rate. My line of work keeps me very busy replacing them and all of the brands do fail at some point.

Have to say that after years of working in the industry and having replaced countless drives, I have more faith in Western Digital drives both at work and at home than any other. The others are all pretty indistinguishable from one another apart from spec. Although on a personal level i've had a very bad experience with Samsung's with 4 out of 4 all failing pretty quickly.

Looks like a good enough deal.

Thought I'd chip in with my own experiences, have had IBM, WD and Seagate all fail. Not had enough use from my Samsungs yet to comment on them.

Normal price. Cold.

Just had to RMA a 1.5TB external drive and a 1 TB internal drive. Both less than a year old and both Seagate. I should also add that the 1 TB was one of a pair in a NAS drive and the other has been fine

Phenomenal, I remember getting a 15gb desktop and taking a good year to fill the drive!

My first PC had 120Mb, and I knew where every file was on it! Nowadays my media server is almost 5Gb, and I keep finding things I swear I didn't download...

i'm thinking of buying the crucial 128gb ssd, could you please tell me if it's as quick as they say, my laptop starts up in 55 seconds but i've been told it will start in half the time with the ssd, what's your experiance?
