This has been posted on here a few times at various prices and going off previous comments it looks like a Seagate

I bought one of these a few months ago and it contains a ]Samsung HD103SI

Good price!
Go one last week for £58. Works well with Sumvision Cyclone Micro Media Player.
:thumbsup:

Hey guys where do you put in the voucher code?

EDIT: Not to worry ive found it

Does this have a on/off switch or mains power only?

seagate.com/www…lp/

Firmware CC32
Date Code 10133

So Iomega have switched supply back to the Seagates mentioned earlier in the thread.

No need for that:?

It looks like a search box thats what confused me, and it has comet1234 written in it, making even more confusing but I got there in the end.

Just opened one of mine,

and,

instead of the Samsung F2,

I find a Seagate Barracuda LP 3100520AS
Firmware Code CC32
Date Code 10133.

Anyone any experience with these Seagate hdds?

JFI, the small crosshead screw under the rubber at the front of the enclosure is the only fixing needing removal to allow opening.

The two visible screws and the two concealed by the rubber 'feet' hold the hdd in place.

The enclosure has squeeze fastenings inside of where the ventolation fins give out,
and,
two loop & hook fastenings at the rear by the sockets for power and data.

yet to take out the small pc card from the satasockets.

Mine is also a LP 3100520AS. I've heard there are some dodgy Seagate drives around, seems main victim was the ST31000340AS (theinquirer.net/inq…ing). I can't find any details about the LP 3100520AS. Can anybody help?

seagate.com/www…lp/

The model number is actually ST31000520AS

cant you tell what you have by plugging it in??

using something like hd tune or hardware monitor? why disasemble it?

cpuid.com/hwm…php

Mines a samsung as well

http://premium1.uploadit.org/bobbyboyuk//103SI.jpg

Actually bought 2. Both contain Seagate disks. One is an ST31000528AS and the other an ST31000520AS.

Seems first is 7200rpm and the other a low power 5900rpm model.

I'd bought these to use in my ReadyNAS box. I guess for network access the disk speed isn't going to be an issue, so I'd have preferred two low power drives. Is using two different drives likely to present a problem for the ReadyNAS?

Thanks

I'm planning on using the drive in my media pc, as it was cheaper than a similar oem bare drive. Can re-use the case for an older disk.

I bought it to strip out the disc to use in a NAS. I put it back in the enclosure to reformat due to an issue with my NAS. The caddy blew up after about 30% of formatting. Glad I bought it for the disc only now which was worth it. If I was buying it to retain as an external drive I think it;s pretty poorly made. reviews elsewhere say the caddy is hit and miss also. £50ish for a 1TB drive and doorstop at least isn't that bad

What disk did you get, and what NAS are you putting it in?

Opened up my second one last night,
and,
it was the expected Samsung, HD 103SI rev:A
with a date of 2009-09

Potentially you may be able to tell them apart,
if Comet, allow you to check the Serial Numbers on the base of the enclosure:

the (presumably older) Samsung has a S/N thbk 3xxxxx
the (presumably newer) Seagate has a S/N thbk 4xxxxx

So when these are in my Synology 207+
I will have a head-to-head comparison
of these, claimed, low energy drives.

I've got two, both Seagate. One's a Barracuda 7200.12 and has a s/n starting with 3. The other's an Barracuda LP and it's s/n starts with 4. So a 3 isn't going to guarantee you a Samsung. Hopefully the failures experienced with the Seagates' early in the year have now all been sorted (fingers and legs crossed).

Well I did say 'potentially'

Anyone know the best set up for these hdds?
IIRC isnt there some free software for 'Acoustic Management'
to reduce the noise they make?

i have just rang comets and they have checked my order i have put by, said they have two drives one is thbk 394737 the other being thbk 412865i am guessing the first to be a samsung and the other the seagate? which one is the better of the two?

going to pick this up
now
