Damn and blast you just beat me to it !!! Great price. Great drive.

beat me too, was just about to post this lol

nice find - roasting!

Environment friendly



lol, how is this product friendly to the environment? Love marketing rubbish.

There's £1 difference between the F1 and F2:

F1: ebuyer.com/pro…123

F2: ebuyer.com/pro…282

Anyone know if there's a difference? I think it's a mistake on Ebuyers part since they're both EcoGreen models.

The F2 is a more recent model as the '2' suggests.:-D

presumably, the 'F2' at 56.99 is the one to go for then? Afterall it's only a quid.

Rotation Speed: 5400 rpm


pff

You can get the F2 at Scan on Today Only for £55.19 with free postage if you are an AV Forums member

a quid is allot of money, just think about it; you could take that quid to a pound shop and get something else with that :-D

Wasn't this 2 or 3 pounds cheaper a month ago ON eBuyer ?

although, in motor racing, F1 is quicker than F2 ;-)

Absolutely spot on.
Complete marketing claptrap.

It uses less power, so it is eco friendly..however small the impact.

Although only 5400rpm these drives have a superb transfer rate equal to most 7200's. Almost no noise and much reduced heat generation from this drive @ 5400 with an admirable transfer rate make these drives perfect for NAS drive bays and the average PC user. ;-)

to be fair it is a slower spin speed and other tweaks to use less power, computing is all about wattage nowdays (or it is in the server field) so in this way its more green but I dont know about any green materials but I am sure the sticker on its recycled paper....

Do either the F1 or F2 work in a sky HD box? I've been thinking about upgrading for a while now as I keep running out of space!

can this work on ps3's?

boyer101;5898146

don't think so, it's a 3.5" drive.

Not environmentally friendly, just less environmentally unfriendly....

"Environmentally friendly" would need to involve producing oxygen and food for the endangered red squirrel.

Agreed- I have this drive and it works like a charm....haven't noticed any sluggishness when transferring files, booting up Windows etc.

This is a scorcher!

Perfect for Popcorn Hour and the likes, hotttttttttttt

hi guys how about one of these in my sky + box?

it is a pvr2 thomson one

F2 appears better, lower power usage and has higher density platters (500Gb vs 333Gb)
Not a fan of Toms Hardware but it's the first review I came across.

tomshardware.com/rev…tml

1TB Hitachi and Samsung have been at the £50 mark about 2 months ago. Really strange that the price has gone up. Usually price of HDD is falling daily.

F3 due in a week or two, should kick some butt that one. 500gb platters 7200rpm

I'm somewhat off topic here -so please forgive. My laptop has a 2.5 inch IDE 7200rpm drive. I know that the sata and IDE connectors are different and my motherboard is definitely IDE only.

My question is I cannot find a fast cheap IDE drive that's 2.5inches that has a bigger capacity than the 100GB one I currently have whereas 2.5 and 3.5 inch sata's are all over the place looking at hotuk's deals.

Is there any reason for this or is it just supply and demand???

Below states August but hacve been informed it is approx 1st September

The Spinpoint F3 operates at 7,200 RPM and is available in different storage capacities of up to 1 terabyte (TB). It is able to pack in that much storage with two 500 GB platter disks. According to Samsung, this drive meets datacenter requirements for additional storage. In addition to address the needs of storage and performance, the new drives are also more energy efficient.

The Spinpoint F3 utilizes advanced 500 GB per platter technology to provide a two-platter 1 TB disk drive. The company stated that an increased areal density per platter provides up to a 30 percent higher performance than a three-platter 1 TB, 3.5-inch disk drive. Reducing the number of platters also cuts down on the number of mechanical parts, thereby increasing reliability in terms of anti-shock and data failure. The Spinpoint F3 hard disk drives also utilize Samsung's technologies of low noise operation, namely SilentSeek and NoiseGuard.

The Spinpoint F3 uses a 3.0 Gbps SATA interface, Native Command Queuing (NCQ) features and a 16 MB or 32 MB buffer memory. The Spinpoint F3 is currently available in 500 GB capacities worldwide. The 1 TB drive is scheduled for initial shipment later in August.

Its all sata these days - so yes supply and demand, less IDE means they will be more expensive.

You might be better off just buying an external hard drive for storage.

beware warranty on this

ebuyers policy is usually if nothing is displayed in specifications then warranty is 1 year...

check before you buy

i think at the moment most reliable are seagate 7200.12 and western digital caviar blacks

i don't think it's worth the plunge for anything else only for £10 as some people would spend £10 on crap...

seagate 7200.12 1tb is 63£ 3 years warranty
caviar black 1tb £70 5 tears warranty
both at ebuyer

The largest 2.5" IDE drive clocks in at 250GB. The reason it stopped there was that SATA had become entrenched by then and then all manufacturing demand for high capacity drives required SATA interfaces as no new notebooks were being made with IDE interfaces. Your best hope for larger capacity is possibly a 1.8" drive with an adapter, but even now 1.8" drives have fairly low capacities and by the time these catch up, you will have probably have ditched your notebook for a more up to date model.

Thanks for your advice guys - means a lot.
