Good point, my error - can the title be edited please mods? Best make it £67.98 delivered

Great deal =D Better make the 'google checkout' thing clearer, though.

I bought one of these last week from ebuyer.

It's a hard drive. It's 500gb.

So far it hasn't exploded.

That's about all you can do reviewing a hard drive :P

Access time, bulk transfer speed (read and write), startup performance, NCQ, platter speed, surface temperature, onboard cache, I/O benchmarks etc. are all valid review points.

Toms hardware gives HDD charts:

Though anyone getting one of these should ideally use it as an internal storage, not their main harddrive. I have six HDDs in my system at the minute - use the fastest one for OS and software (its a 10k RPM 150GB Raptor... 1.50GBP/gb), and the rest as storage.

nice, ordered myself one

ta!

This disk would be great for most users main/only hard disk drive (it has had good reviews). Most people don't need Raptors. :thumbsup:
Voted HOT! ;-)

Lol this is very true! Though imo having 500gb as a main HDD that is frequently used means that when it does go kaput (industry standard is usually 5 years, medium use), you'll use a lot. A HDD as a backup should last upto 10 years.

Unless they send you a bad one!

Quick bit of advice: do some research to find out where this is manufactured!

If it's made in China - I would personally run a mile away from it. The reason is simple i bought a 300gb Seagate a couple of months ago, made in singapore or was in Thailand can't remember anyway that one is fantastic, really quiet, cost £50 by the way

Bought another last week 250gb Seagate for £37 (which i actually posted on hotukdeals!) it is made in the new Maxtor/Seagate factory in China and it is a noticeably nosier.

It will be hard to avoid the China ones as they are the "newer" cheaper models.

If your worried losing the drive's data you could get two and set them to raid 1.. at this price its an option.

I run mine at 0 for speed but then have a backup drive for insurance.

oddly enough, Shipping is set at £3.99

but when you checkout via google it goes up to over £4.50 (but still the same super saver option)

totalling at £68.68

I bought two yesterday, awaiting their arrival

Does anyone know if this can be added to a XBOX if it has been modded?

(Sorry if the question is a bit obscure)

heard this is toooo noisy. unfort will need to stay away as tempting as this is.

Correct me if I am wrong but I think that with the XBOX you have to use an IDE hard drive but this one is SATA.

Thanks for the pointer Title now reflects deal with delivery included.

really?
My Mac pro has the 7200.10 drive and its super quiet.
wonder if there's a big difference

Xbox360 use SATA Disk drives. I think !

Anyone who has these - how much do they warm up? my spinpoint barely exceeds 30 degrees..

Pity I'm building a media PC and therefore noise levels are a major factor, hence my spend of £40 on a 250gb SATA Samsung hard drive

:thinking: does it come to £4.69???
if so thats the 17.5% vat

i know ebuyer add vat after perhaps google do it at the time

Xbox: IDE

Xbox360: Probably better off using an external USB drive, I think, if you're planning on storing media.
