Good price for this drive. Has been getting good reviews.
Heat added..

Same here, heat added.

Wow ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! :-d

Even better price then the lowest before!!!?
Its was £79.99 (What i paided for it about 2/3 weeks ago)
I guess every penny counts

Ive got one! Vista gives its a 5.9 (Max on Windows Performance Rating)

Bought one of these last week for £80, it's excellent.

not bad...

Great price!
Heat & rep.

Great find. :thumbsup:

Heat and rep. Great price - only way to do it cheaper is if you're already going to the US

Same drive is a penny more @ ]Scan but is free next day delivery if you're a member of AVForums (sign up if not currently, it's free).

Samsung definately make some of the best drives available - be it in the SATA or IDE flavour. They are cool (temperature), quiet, and fast (and cheap!).

WD/Seagate/Maxtor = No match for Samsung Spinpoints. Period.

Got one of these a couple of weeks back for £80.

An excellent drive. Runs very cool and quiet too. My favourite drive, followed by my Maxtor DiamondMax 10 (a bit hotter and noisier) and then in last my two Seagate 7200.11's which run a lot hotter (not happy with them at all). Go Samsung.

I need 10 bays!

Got about 1.6 Terrabytes in total at the moment on 5 drives so pondering a new bigger one to try to get organised... Far too much bumph I could do without.

Probably a silly question but I was wondering about the longevity of external hard drives over an internal hard drive. My main concern with using an internal is that should my PC die will the hard drive be affected also? This is why an external solution was what I was originally going to go for, but hopefully someone can prove me wrong because apart from the need to move your files around, what other plus points are there in having an external as opposed to an internal drive.

heated m8. can some plz recommend a satall/usb enclosure? so that i can use it as a external hdd?

Prices are cheap because Samsung just released the new F1 series of drives. So companies are clearing stocks just now.

Is the F1 meant to be a lot better.

Whether your hard drive is effected when your PC dies depends on what it is dying of. The hard drive can be effected (external and internal) if you catch a virus. If your PC dies of other hardware failure, your hard drive may not be effected and you can pull all your files off either with an external enclosure or in another PC. I use my external hard drive to transfer files between desktop and notebook.

Hi Scissorhands, with regards to if your "should your PC die will the hard drive be affected?"...well, it depends what made it die.
If it was a power surge for instance, yes your HDD might die; as would any external device if left UN-protected.

The only reason an internal drive may die sooner than an external one is that you would presumably install an OS (XP, Vista, Linux..etc..) on the internal drive and boot from it something which not many people do from external drives. This would increase wear on the drive...but not considerably. Other than that externals fall foul of any problems internals have; viruses, spyware, power surge and general failure. It is EXACTLY the same drive inside a plastic housing after all. All it does is emulate the connections which are inside your PC and push the resulting data (very slowly!) over USB.

There are really no plus points in having an external drive, other than the fact that you can move it about with you so it makes a great backup solution. Internal drive transfer rates are FAR higher than anything USB 2.0 can put out so I would go for the internal over external any day of the week. It's always worth keeping an external backup that you can travel about with however. Most importantly keep EVERYTHING surge protected.

How do you get the free delivery? I can't find a link/code.

The cache on this is twice that of my current drive, but also more than twice the capacity. Will this speed up my system or does the extra size actually slow things down? I suspect the answer has to do with the amount of data on the disc, perhaps also the amount of data as a percentage of the drive? Anybody willing to give me a quick lesson on how these things work? Thanks.

Scan next day delivery has NEVER delivered by next day. I always receive items after 4~5 days.

I've ordered at least 30 times from Scan and they have been delivered next day by City Link. Perhaps once, maybe twice, they didn't get the shipment out the same day I ordered (and this always generated an apology email/text) but it went the following day and delivered the day after that. Do you live in the Outer Hebrides or somewhere?! :?

EDIT: to be fair though, I live in Lancaster which is only about 30-40 miles from Scan's warehouse.

No offense, but I have that same enlosure and its very cheap.
The fan they use on it is liek the ones in the Coolermaster drive coolers i.e. very small, and so a high pitched noise comes from it. Get what you pay for I guess.

On teh free delivery from Scan front, I didnt think there offer is next day delivery. Which is fair enough as if you want that, you can pay for it. Free delviery f 3 days or so is a decent enough deal. Especially when it doesnt include a minimum order amount.

Do you know if this is OEM?
They say "Many of our competitors sell Grey/imported or system integrator product with only 1 year warranty! to achieve a cheap price." but aren't very clear...

Guys These won't work, as these are for IDE drives. The Samsung is a SATA Drive. I just bought this one: scan.co.uk/Pro…786 It can take IDE OR SATA drives, and provides USB2 AND e-Sata connectivity. Has had great reviews too. All info here: akasa.co.uk/aka…htm

Erm, is this (753LJ) drive not the same as the F1?

See the following link:
samsung.com/glo…tml

Also, Ive done a litte research on this drive on the StorageReview forum and it seems there is an "issue". Have a read of the following thread:
forums.storagereview.net/ind…t=0

If there are no reliability issues, then this looks like a good drive.
