"The Samsung Spinpoint F1 uses 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 250GB drives or a four- or five-disk solution. Compared to a five-disk 500GB solution, the F1 Series consumes 13-16% less power and provides up to 20% faster performance."

"With 80mm high performance/low noise Ever Lubricate bearing fan. Lowers HDD operating temp to achieve max
performance, reliability and longer MTBF. Application to all standard 3.5 HDD. Modern style and outstanding
design."

Awesome price, heat added. I've just ordered a 500GB WD from ebuyer for £47.99, only because the Samsung that came with my E520 is so damn noisy i won't get a Samsung thanks to the bad experience, noise being the main factor and WD being almost silent.

Am i right in assuming that this gets hot therefore the reason for the fan?

Don't expect next day delivery from them - all my orders have recently been bumped over to the next day or the day after due to the 'warehouse being extraordinarily busy'. This has also been experienced by several of my friends / colleagues.

If you complain about the delivery delay (given that you are paying for next day courier and you have been assured it will arrive next day) they will tell you 'It is next day delivery from point of dispatch'.... Great.

Having said that, this is an extremely good price.

The drive temps are in line with other drives and there's no real need for the fan. It also adds noise. Scan have a truckload of these that cost very little. It just makes the deal look more appealing when compared to other retailers.

Heat added - cracking price

Am i missing something it comes too £46.46 Delivered ?

Oh no matter just read again Hexus

How do we sign up to "the hexus free postage offer"? I've Googled Scan and Hexus and figured out if you join the Hexus forum you can get free delivery but there seems to be some confusion over how you do it and what is eligible (is it orders over £50 excluding VAT?)

Your help appreciated.

Depends on which model Samsung drive you had. These are the lastest F1 models which runs quiet and cooler.

I didn't need the cooler for the drive last time i got this - but I used it elsewhere in my system (the vga kicks a lot of heat off!) so voted hot - as my system isn't now

Just seen this at Scan.
Got to be a hot deal.
Want to use it as an external drive with the £6 cable from LED Shop posted on here previously
Wil there be any problem in recognising the size of the drive?
I can get free P&P so very tempting

I got a 750GB Sammy the other month with one of these free fans, I chucked the fan straight in the bin. I love the drives though, I've had about 6 of them over the past few years and they've all been perfect. Quiet and reliable.

Anyone know if Hexus works for people in Northern Ireland?

aaaaaagh just got the 500GB Hitachi for same price from scan

now do i get one of these as well?

But Hexus free shipping has been available since 2005 giving you plenty of time to sign up :thumbsup:

;-)

It will be on offer again anyhow.

I used to get free shipping by using Avform but it's gone phut of late :oops:

Indeed, The offer started on Hexus and remains the best and most longstanding of the Scan forum offers due to their close relationship with Scan. So it's well worth signing up to Hexus for future deals :thumbsup:

Done :whistling: Doesn't help me get the drive today though :viking:

Regarding the "free delivery offer" remember that it isn't as quick as if you were to pay for it. I.e. it normally takes at least 2 working days rather than just the 1 (if you were to pay for delivery). But you are getting it free at least, and quicker than ebuyer's 1 week free delivery.

I've 2 of the original versions of these 500GB samsungs (about 6 months old) and not had any problems - both very quiet and cool. The cooler is just to make it look better really, it's not needed at all on the drive.

Been running one for the last couple of months without a hitch. Wanted a 2nd one to make a mirror. Not this week by the looks of it.

Not true. Paid-for-shipping orders are not prioritised over free shipping orders (except for Saturday deliveries). They are all treated the same. Dispatch time is dependent on stock and volume of orders. It's not a guaranteed next-day service regardless of whether you pay for shipping or not.

Sure, there can be instances where an order with shipping paid for dispatches quicker than a free shipping order, but the reverse is just as probable.

Can't find a link at the moment, it's on the Scan forum somewhere.

I ordered a monitor on a Sunday night, and got it delivered on the Tuesday, so effectively next day free delivery.

The Today Only offers change around mid afternoon, so you'll have a chance to buy until then.
It says on the website it changes at 12 midday, but it doesn't

Isn't one offered to choose a delivery day when ordering with Scan?

Can I have it next time please - will pay for postage

Hmm, & I always thought a cooler was meant to cool a drive :?

Just ordered a 1TB Spinpoint F1 drive from ebuyer. With a belkin SATA cable and next day delivery came to £101...

So not a bad deal for a the 500GB's

but at a lower price :whistling:

do avforums still do it or not?

I really do need a new HDD. Been using my 160gb one for years now and i'm only ever left with 20gb free space after a clean install of windows and the games i need lol.

charlie12;2630807

]No.




thanks

I heard that these F1's are not very good and a lot of them develop faults. It's all over the net. In need of a SATA drive as i just got my first motherboard with SATA connections...wooh hoo.
