Well, it was free shipping included @ £111.61. Now it's not free shipping but cheaper WITH UK mainland delivery @ £108.83

tempting. I really should get rid of the junk filling up my current drives though

Excellent deal, much better than all those useless Hitachi drives being posted recently.

+1 here,had 2 hitachis die on me recently,1 external 1tb and a 750gb one,got a raptor,seagate and a sammy and none of them have ever giv en me any trouble at all

Hitatchi's are awful, awful drives. THey dont have the nickname change from deskstar to deathstar for nothing. Seagate & WD for me every time, Samsung F series is also top notch.

i have had a Hitatchi thats ran smooth for over 4 years now where as ive had 2 seagates that have failed on me

I went for the Samsung F2 1.5TB for £69 on Scan Today Only.

is there any difference between sata and sata 2 connections and if my motherboard supports sata will it support sata 2?

1) SATA 2 cables still work in SATA 1 sockets.

2) SATA 2 drives will still work with motherboards that only have SATA 1 sockets.

So you will be ok with this drive

It doesn't seem that long ago that people on here were saying "I'm waiting for the price of a 1TB disk to go below £100".

Warranty Information

Warranty Period (yrs) 1


since when did Hard Drives come with 1yr Warranty ?

Yeah, ordered that too - is that deal on here?

[edit] it is: hotukdeals.com/ite…a-h

hawt :thumbsup:

the 1 year warranty is related to people seeking higher capacity all of the time. HDD makers can lower their return costs and invest in higher densities thus satisfying demand.

Never go for Hitachi - always trust seagate.

I build and maintain various computers for a few of my friends and always install seagate drives - they are the power!

1.5 vs 3.0 Gbps. Sata III is 6.0Gbps but the drives wont be mainstream till the end of the year.

I've fount recent seagate drive less reliable than others, including hitachi - YMMV

All drives fail at some point, whether its sooner or later, so just ensure you always keep proper backups.

Aria are continuing this pricing so grab it while you still can :thumbsup:

Great price, heat added. I've always been cautious with Hitachi what with the whole "deathstar" phase, but they have gotten better.Before the prices changed the Hitachi was cheaper wso I went with that instead of the Seagate. The drive arrived faulty, so I returned it for a refund and got this instead, very happy with. Aria were excellent during the RMA process as well.

Make of that what you will, all hard drives fail eventually as previously mentioned. The people who prefer a certain make usually have had problems with others and that is just statistics and luck tbh.

Either way if I had to recommend one or the other with them being the same price I'd go Seagate, I've had less problems with their drives and their direct RMA service is excellent.
