2.5" or 3.5"? Looked on eBuyer, couldn't see it!

Ah, fair enough. I'll join you in the cover-up in just a second.


Edit: By hte way, you guys suck. Some fanny posted a deal for a Hitachi 1TB drive for £52 earlier in the week, and this is well better than that one was, because it's 1.5TB for £75, making it 50% more capacity for a shade under 50% the added cost, so the £/GB value is slightly better, and a single very large drive is just so much better than two large drives because it uses fewer SATA ports, fewer SATA power connectors, less power, generates less heat, and generates less noise. Stop voting it cold.

Why pay £75 for 1.5TB when all you need is 1TB which you can get for £50?

Because it's impossible to need only 1TB. Think about it. Windows consumes, what, 10GB? Add maybe twenty games in as well, leaving them installed all the time, and that adds maybe about 100GB. Add some other apps too, you're looking at maybe another 100GB. You'll want to create stuff with those apps, and there's the thing. Either you're going to create small files, where you can probably fit a year's work into a gig or so, or you're going to create big files, where disk requirements are unlimited. So in reality, you're either going to be like my mum and just need a harddrive tht's big enough to store all her apps plus all the files she's going to work on, or you're going to be like me, filling drives with endless masses of high-def multitracked audio, high-quality video, videogames, downloads, all sorts. Anyone that's going to get near the limits of a 1TB drive is going to be able to surpass them without a great deal of extra effort, so the bigger the better. If you don't need a big harddisk, why pay more than £20 for an 80GB drive?

What bizarre logic!

What bizarre logic!:roll:



Can you think of any reasons why one would really only need between 751GB and 1000GB, and not something over a terabyte?

I run my own MythTv server and believe me, 1Tb gets filled quite quickly when you are recording TV shows at 2Gb per hour.

I have a finite amount of physical space in the server so given the choice of 1Tb @ £50 or 1.5Tb @ £75 it gives me not only the same £/Gb but means I cram more than I could do in the server without having to fork out for a larger case.

Still strange logic here!

1TB is quite a lot of storage space for typical desktop usage. I run an engineering company and I haven't got a machine with more than a 500GB drive in it. That includes all CAD, accounts, word processing and general admin PCs. So if I need a new hard drive I'd probably just pick up a 1TB at £50 which seems like good value to me.

You are obviously a bit obsessed with size ;-) . It's not a very good "deal" if you recommend buying the BIGGEST thing you can get when you don't actually need it. 1.5TB drives for desktops didn't even exist before 2008 but the world still seemed to be functioning reasonably well without them.
