OcUK have just secured an amazing price on the Samsung F1 1TB hard drive making us the cheapest in the UK once again.

The Samsung Spinpoint F1 is the first three-disk hard drive delivering a whopping 1TB of capacity along with sophisticated recording technology. With its compact, lightweight package and advanced design, the F1 drive offers many advantages for high-density applications compared to using two 500GB drives or a four or five-disk solution. Compared to a five-disk 1TB solution, the F1 Series consumes 13-16% less power and provides up to 20% faster performance. This 3Gbps SATA drive has a maximum of 334GB of formatted capacity per disk while also featuring Samsungs industry-leading NoiseGuard and SilentSeek technologies to eliminate acoustic noise. The Spinpoint F1 utilizes Samsung-developed perpendicular recording technology, which helps the drive set new records in both areal density and platter capacity.

- Capacity: 1TB
- Cache: 32MB
- Interface: SATA-II
- Spin Speed: 7200RPM
- Seek Time: 8.9ms
- Warranty: 3 Years

It hasn’t expired but it seems over priced when you consider how cheap the 750GB version is; Scan have had it on offer at under £90 recently.
I’d rather go for a WD RE2-GP which is £133 at the moment and has been less. Not as fast but quieter and cooler and the F1 1TB has been flagged as a ‘potentially’ troublesome product from what I’ve seen reported. I like Samsung and usually buy their drives but this one has me concerned.
