if its the samsung f2eg ive heard its a very good drive.... 1.5tb is way to much to loose those... stick with the f3 internals!

I appreciate it anyway, I had not seen the other post (was currys anyway). The drive is a Samsung F2 if anyone else wants to know, think they run cool and quiet.

Rep for trying to answer - but I still don't get what williams_tom meant by "much too loose" and f2eg and f3 internals. :thumbsup:

I'll try and translate then - Williams_tom means

a) 1.5TB of data is too much to lose if the drive fails
b) F2 is just the model of the samsung drive used - nice drive and gets good reviews - it runs very cool and has a 3 year warranty on the drive.
c) He's saying his personal choice of drive upgrade would be a Samsung F3 model which he would fit inside his PC. I have not seen the F3's as external drives yet, they tend to just be internals, though nothing to stop you putting one inside an external case.

Thanks loopie :thumbsup:

I think most people would disagree with a) it's much more convenient to have fewer drives and you should always have backups.

No probs, I agree fewer but larger the drives the better! (assuming backups made)
