anyone know if i can put this in a macbook?

If you are after more than 1 of these you can buy 2 for £75.19 on Scans "Today Only" Page.

Buying from Scan only worth it if you qualify for free delivery.

NO you can't. It's 3.5' not 2.5.

Super hot. I'm almost tempted to put off my dentist visit and use the £40 to buy this instead. Been waiting ages for it to get to this golden number.

you probably could with a hammer, but I'm not sure how pleased Steve Jobs would be

There's enough people who use PC's who don't have a clue about the hardware in them. I've met a person who tried to wire a 3 pin electric plug to a USB cable because he didn't understand how the printer was powered, insane I know especially as there was a power unit in the box. We actually hung that cable up in the shop because it was so unbelievable that some one would do that. I wish it was a tall story but it really happened, fortunately for him he didn't succeed in wiring the plug because it's obviously not designed to be wired to the mains lol. Anyway I don't assume what a person knows when I first meet them, I also don't assume that all customers are dumb, it probably would help but I try not to

No always assume customers are dumb then you don't get caught out lol

I bought four of these and had to use a program called MHDD to make it show the full capacity, incase anyone needed that info..

Anything can happen in the next half hour...

This drive gets great reviews and this is the usual good value price these days. Worth being aware whether Amazon are selling the EU version which comes with a Samsung 3 year warranty or the non-EU version which would just have the 1 year from Amazon. As for Scan well there's a lot of posts on different forums where people are complaining that Scan are selling it as a manufacturer 3 year warranty whereas it's a 3 year warranty with them. If you think it doesn't matter, see what happens if you have a problem with your hard drive but Scan disagree. Manufacturers are usually much less picky about refund/replacement under warranty. Buyer beware.....

Any point in switching to the F3 drive (2 platters) from a Seagate 7200.11 drive (3 platters)? I have no interest in SSDs until sizes/prices change so wondering if this drive would bring any kind of noticeable improvements.

What was it showing up as? Did a simple format not fix the incorrect capacity info? BTW, do you find these drives loud or quiet? Keep reading different things when it comes to the noise.

Great Drive, Great Deal Grab em while you can.

if i wanted to raid0 would I need a raid card? Thinking of speeding it up for overall windows speed.

Probably not, check your motherboard specs. Many motherboards support RAID 0, 1 and JBOD.

cool I didn't know that. just checked the hp site. says I need to install some device driver to get it to work. i think i'll go for 2 then.

If you raid 0 and a drive crashes you loose both.
Good idea to have a Samsung 2TB backup.

Crap another thing I didn't know! Thanks for letting me know. Raid 1 maybe a possibility. Though as I'm trying to speed up the OS. It may be better I just go for SSD for OS and anything else on the 1tb disk.

Expected price to pay for this is well under £40, its been hovering under the £40 mark for 6-8weeks now, would be a cracker at £35 delivered.

I'm holding fire until next Monday (November 22nd) - it might (stress the might!) come down further in price then, as Amazon UK are holding a 'Black Friday Sale'.

thats amazing

i got called to a house once and they had connected everything but forgot to turn the switch on the plug socket on

so i pressed that and off i went

ive had people call me out for monitors not working and its just been detuned (probably by the kids)

and the amount of people forgetting to plug x y or z wire is unbeliveable but you always have to asume they never had a pc before
