Make sure you check the warranty situation with them before you order

Why ? 3 years should mean 3 years, isn't it ? would not send a faulty used hdd for repair anyway

Says 3 years on specs. That will do for me! Thanks.

waiting for Amazon to pricematch this.

Just has 2 of the 1Tb Samsungs fail on me and Amazon's CS is just the best to deal with. They refuned me the 2nd time, so in the market now for a 2Tb.

Customer reviews on Amazon saying it's a gray import.

There is no 'warranty situation', it's been known for a very long time that Ebuyer provide the 3 year warranty on these drives, as do almost every other retailer that sell these grey imports.

You're more likely to need Amazon's CS due to them going back to their awful packaging every other week.
Personally I'd stick with Ebuyer, at least you know it'll arrive in one piece.

The failure rates on these are too high for my liking.

Sweet, same here Amazon are a much better company to deal with, however this is grey import so only 12m warranty

voted cold as the postage is not free to N. Ireland with ebuyer but it is with amazon.

Price now £49.98

Free postage at spend over £49.99

Someone at eBuyer realised they could drop it 2p and force you to either pay postage or buy something else - sneaky.

yeah think the 2p cut is just to undercut amazon - free delivery still works.

Are the fail rates high on these?
I thought they were very reliable and has one of the best performances.
Personally I haven't had any failed drives.
Can anybody comment on the reliability of these drives?
No matter how cheap, if reliability is poor then I won't bother with these drives.
Not worth risking data loss.

This is a great price I might fill up my WD sharespace.

I personally have a few Samsung drives, and whilst some have been fine, quite a few have not. I personally will be looking else where (Seagate/WD/Hitachi being the only other options really). Must be a reason why they so cheap IMO.

I bought one of these recently to replace a very old 160gb Seagate drive and so far had no problems with it.

ive got 7 of these running in my system. all working fine

i bought a seagate 3.5 internal 1tb sealed for £15 at our local booty, wish id bought the rest of them now!

Had three of four drives fault on me. I loved the one gb series but two seems less stable. Just my own experience

Does anyone have any statistical evidence of failure rates rather than mere anecdotal stories of a handful of drives?

Good for you. How long for? What is your 'system'? What PSU? How long is your 'system' stay on for? What is it used for? Any RAID setup? What's the cooling like? etc etc.

With no warranty, you're mad to just have bought one. I would have bought the lot and used either RAID Stripe mirrors for speed and resiliency or 5

I have 4 of these they need the firmware upgrading which is a pain. Mine shipped with a firmware that makes the drive loose data. Fail samsung. Will stick to WD from now on

Pay the xtra £5 and get the non-grey import version with updated firmware.

Where do you buy from Satan to be sure of non-gray import and updated firmware?

Cheers

£54.99 now ahh missed it

Amazon are still doing it for 50 though.
