Today only special at Scan - cheapest price ever for a quality 1TB hard drive. 2 year warranty.

The Deskstar 7K2000 hard drive range delivers up to a colossal two terabytes of storage capacity and 7200 RPM performance in a standard 3.5-inch form factor. The overall capacity is dependant on which version is purchased as these models are available to purchase in a range of capacities.

Now in its fourth-generation, the 7K2000 is based on a robust mechanical design that continues to set the industry standard for quality and reliability.

Through a patented ramp load/unload design, data heads are moved to a ramp away from the disk where they rest during periods of inactivity. This greatly minimizes the risk of shock damage by eliminating direct contact between the heads and disks, reducing wear and heat while improving overall drive reliability and power efficiency. The Deskstar 7K2000 also incorporates thermal fly-height control (TFC) technology which uses an integrated heating element to precisely maintain a constant fly-height throughout read and write operations to enhance overall data integrity, drive performance and reliability. The 7K2000 features industry-standard native 512-byte sector formatting, ensuring compatibility with mainstream computing environments.

The Deskstar 7K2000 offers an exceptional blend of capacity and power efficiency, with idle power savings over previous generation products up to 10%. On a watts per gigabyte basis, idle power has improved over 120%. Leveraging eighth-generation power management technology, including power-saving innovations like HiVERT technology, this drive delivers best-in-class power management and thermal emissions to help manufacturers meet energy compliance targets and extend drive life.

Ooh ... the Deskstar, which acquired the nickname the Deathstar on account of its failure rate ... Ie have had 2 die on me. Hitachi arent known for quality.

inb4 outdated deathstar comment - oh too late.

excellent price but personally i would pay a couple more quid for the samsung f3 also on today only.

No problems with mine in over a year, very good price.

how do we get the free delivery?

Deathstar is a bit outdated, but ive had one of these die on me a few weeks back. Good thing about the death is its a slow one though so you get a chance to save your stuff.

Maxtor is the brand i really dislike.

They all die eventually, but I have more samsung than anything at the moment.

Imo the steal was the other day with the 1.5tb for £46.

Good drive. Bought one from Scan a couple of weeks back, which incidently provide great service. It is quiet and fast. Just the job. :o)

nice price but I still have 200Gb free on a 320Gb Hitachi.

maybe I should download some HD movies X)

Excellent price for a 1tb drive, heat added.

Are people still referring to this as the deathstar?

I thought that gag left with my Pentium pro 250 mmx.

So does anyone know how to get the free shipping?

err no the samsung F3 is faster than this and less than £2 more plus a 36 month warranty

Your text here

The slowe samsungs F2 and F4 are for storing media and are not boot hdd, they offer exceptional value for money in terms of storage.

F3 is a 7200rpm drive. The Samsungs posted recentloy were 5400rpm

Fs has been posted on here, 3, 4 and 5 weeks ago. Anyway my point stands you are not comparing like with like, but if you wnat to the samsung is the better drive.

Hitachi? I’d rather get a well-known brand like Onkyo.

That's a fair point, but I plan on using a couple (RAID 1) in a NAS so the cheaper the better as the difference in speed doesn't matter.

Your drive was not this model and your comment is irrelevant.

I actually have one of the so called 60gb deathstars from that distant era and strangely it is still working fine as part of an old mp3 jukebox PC in my workshop.
