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 Samsung's 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 a real density and platter capacity.

The Spinpoint F1 requires fewer components than competing solutions while delivering enhanced reliability versus a 1TB drive with four or five disks or two 500GB disks. With fewer heads and disks, the F1 statistically has a lower probability of headdisk failures. According to estimates, this Samsung drive has a 50% lower failure rate than a two- 500GB-drive solution and as much as 31% fewer failures than five-platter 1TB drives.

Servers, high-end desktops, RAID systems and DVRs are among the applications well suited to the Spinpoint F1 drive. The drive is available with desktop PC- or RAID-level reliability. Mean time between failures for RAID reliability is up to 1.2 million hours. A rotational vibration sensor enables the drive to operate more efficiently in a RAID environment.

For consumer applications, a power-saving code reduces power consumption while AV-optimized firmware cuts time delays during AV data recording. In general, the Samsung drive offers a superior combination of density, recording quality and reliability.

The cost of this drive including shipping is £91.98.

It's free shipping on things over 49.99 this weekend
(Voted Hot!)

Damnit, just spent £92 on one from Scan..... Always the way eh !

Voted hot!

Decent price, but what a terrible company. Morals and customer care of a burglar... in my opinion of course. If you're of a patient disposition, and feeling brave then go ahead and order.

What a bargain. Just placed order. Many thanks for the great find! HOT!!!

simply great

my serious problem is that free shipping is not working for some reason

No free shipping here either?

It would

I need a new hard drive too - a bigger one anyway :-D

Thanks ordered one for the price stated.:thumbsup:

it should do, but it doesnt. HDD makers class 1000gb as 1tb. sucks

My 1tb WD has 931gb formatted

Still saying 13 left, suspect stock isnt updating and could be some disappointment on this one.....

Other than that, cracking price....nearly ordered one until I realised ive still got nearly 500GB free of my current 1.25TB

Just checked and free shipping is offered when you get to the 'delivery and shipping' bit of the checkout.

yep, it takes off the P&P when you actually checkout so click that button , unfortunately the carrier is shittylink, but hey the deals a good one and you could always use the Google checkout option if you don't yet feel you can trust this supplier with your card details.

I need an excuse to buy a couple of these :oops: Anyone know any good deals on NAS's? will give rep :w00t: :whistling:

You are referring to multiple drives equaling 1.25 TB, right? :?

Yup thats the same for all "1TB" drives.

Fair enuf but wouldn't it then also be 1.024TB/1024GB ?? both relating to GB versus GiB

no, because in computing terms 1kb is 1024byes, 1 mb is 1024kilobytes, 1gb is 1024mb and respectively 1tb is supposed to be 1024gb.

For RAM its done to 1024KB in 1MB but with Hard Disks its done exactly to the 1000KB = 1MB. Hence your 1000GB.

I'm sure you're confusing your GB with GiB as TB is the same factor as GB therefore going from 500GB to 750 GB to 1TB is the same method i.e 500GB to 700GB to 1000GB, therefore i'm pretty sure that a 1TB drive is actually equal to 1000GB.

Isn't it when you go all TiB and little b's that the 1024 comes into it ?

I daresay i'm probable wrong but from all i've read drives are equal to
80 GB/74 GiB, 160 GB/149 GiB, 250 GB/232 GiB, 320 GB/298 GiB, 400 GB/372 GiB, 500 GB /465 GiB, 750 GB/698 GiB and 1000 GB/930 GiB and if the post earlier by Minstadave stating that all 1TB drives read as 931GB is true then that matches a 1000GB drive as stated here.

i cant get free delivery with google check out and problem is that they are sending the drive with SHITY Link.

Not true really - its a marketing thing, pure and simple. Storage on a hard drive, in IT(not IT sales) 1024kb = 1MB

I guess ur right, my 250GB hard drive gives me 217GB or 233,951,637504 bytes

It all depends how you define a terabyte. There are two definitions: 1 based upon decimal(1000GB) and one based upon binary(1024GB). As the former allows HDD manufacturers to hit the magic 1TB mark with less space, they market it as this, but computers work in binary and so once you actually put it in your PC, it calculates the space using the binary definition of terabyte, which is 1024GB.

and finally, correct me if I;m wrong, but I'm not sure theres such a thing as a GiB - I think you may be thinking of Gb (with a small b) - which is Gigabit rather than GigaByte(one eigth of the size of a gigabyte).

en.wikipedia.org/wik…GiB

I stand corrected

I think the names Gibibit and Mibibit were invented especially to sound **** and annoy people!

In hard drives:

1 kB = 1,000 Bytes
1 MB = 1,000,000 Bytes
1 GB = 1,000,000,000 Bytes
1 TB = 1,000,000,000 Bytes (1,073,741,824 everywhere else)

Just like UK schools and local government use the term ICT, instead of IT used by the rest of the known universe.

Just want to correct: you say "in hard drives" - I would say "in hard drive marketing" - hard drives on a technical level are NOT like this.
