Wow! The F1 is getting sold off cheep, as there is a new version coming out, but still a cracking price!
Heat & Rep coming ur way !

Damn, i bought mine from ebuyer 2 days ago...! Could have saved myself £6 and got next day delivery! woops!!

It’s getting to the point that I’m going to automatically vote any Samsung hard drive deal as cold as it will be posted within a few days for £5 less. :w00t:

I paid £80 for the 750GB from Ebuyer recently but might well have gone for this if it had been this price at the time. Hot.

what a hottie

you still got the better bang for buck, hope you're not serious about voting cold


im still waiting for External USB versions to dip under £100

You'll be waiting quite a while.....500Gb drives are only just getting in the 50-60 quid range.

Just like a brand new Ferrari for under £20k would be a bargain worth waiting for.

Just bought the 750 from Scan yesterday. Thats also a great price at the mo.
Hot.

Please note: This does not work with HP EX470 or EX475.

Jez, you dont ask for much, do you ?

Will it be ok to use this hard drive in SkyHD?

master_chief;1869055

How come?



Some issues when doing a restart the drives dont show up. Have to do a cold start.

Google has more info :thumbsup:

What is the new model brining to the table then?

Seems pretty good to me 1tb for this price, but with computer stuff it will always generally get cheaper and cheaper. So I'll skip voting.

I think so check out ]http//ww…1tb

Excuse my ignorance but would I be able to fit this as a second drive in my desktop computer? I know there's a physical space to fit it - is there anything else that I would need to check before ordering one of these?
All help appreciated !

Yes, you'll need
a) a PSU with enough spare capacity for a second drive (usually fine)
b) a PSU with a spare SATA power cable (or you'll need a PSU with a spare Molex power cable and then a Molex to SATA power cable)
c) a motherboard with a spare SATA data connection and an SATA data cable attached (or an SATA card with an SATA data cable if your motherboard only has IDE connectors)

But to back this drive up onto 3.5 inch diskettes you would need 694445 disks and at a cost of 10p each it would cost £69,444.50 and it would take 16 months changing the disks once every minute of every day...;-)

What does that translate to in terms of 5” floppies?

They are actually 5.25" floppies. The total number would depend on whether they were 1.2Mb (double sided, double density), 600k (single sided, double density) or 300k (single sided single density). I'm sure you can do the basic arithmetic with your chosen format

1TB is just not big enough. What is 1000 Terabytes called?

With my 20MB fiberoptic Virign Media broadband connection I could fill up 80 of these in a year.

2.5 MB/sec
150 MB/min
9 GB/hour
193 GB/day
1.35 TB/week
5.4 TB/month
70.4 TB/year

(includes the 5-hour daily traffic shapng 4pm-9pm)

:thinking:

^^ just 2 problems... youd be filling it with rubbish that youd never watch
and also virgin would kick you off after a few weeks (possibly sooner) of maxing out the line

Carphone Warehouse are fighting it VM just said '#yes sir how far would you like me to bend over my customers'. Couldnt be anything to do with the fact that in a lot of areas they cannot provide the 20mb/s service:whistling:

1000 Bytes = 1 Kilobyte
1000 Kilobytes = 1 Megabyte
1000 Megabytes = 1 Gigabyte
1000 Gigabytes = 1 Terabyte
1000 Terabytes = 1 Petabyte
1000 Petabytes = 1 Exabyte
1000 Exabytes = 1 Zettabyte
1000 Zettabyte = 1 Zottabyte
1000 Zottabyte = 1 Brontobyte - that is a 1 followed by 27 zeroes

your calculations would have been correct were it not for the missing 24 bytes

1024 bytes = 1K

etc

actually I am correct... :w00t: :w00t:

what you are refering to is covered here scan.co.uk/tek…p=1 :thumbsup:

EDIT: Quote "The most common exception, where it's very correct, is the hard disk, where 1GB of disk space does actually mean 1,000,000,000 bytes"

Now if M$ and others would just stop misleading everyone and use the correct binary prefixes MiB and GiB instead of falsely reporting MB and GB, there would be a great deal less confusion ;-)

What you talking about, its the drive manufacturers that are using the decimel GB incorrectly , Microsoft are using the proper format....

Traffic shaping is from 4PM till 9PM...
