Was that the 3.5" or the 2.5" you had in the pc?

I've got one in my pc build, less than 3 months old and hasn't really had much use and it's now died. Luckily still under warranty but got a weeks worth of downloading games when I get a new one. Not happy at all. WD Black is the way to go. First ever hard drive I've had fail on me in 15years.

True. Too bad I can't monetise those naughty pictures. (embarrassed) Read recently that Google let third parties read your emails ... that is disgusting! So I had to get a domain name & set up email server. Money I didn't want to spend.

tan159

That's ok too but then they have the full right to go through all your data & laugh/publish all the naughty pics of you & your girlfriend in your knickers. You lose your privacy rights!

WD only released its hybrid drives in 2013 so only 5 years ago. But I get your point. The first gen Momentus XT drives did have a few issues and there were several firmware updates for it (which many users didn't do). So many early drives did have problems, but that is to be expected with early adopters. My 8 year old drive still works fine. Performance has moved on somewhat in that time.

FireOnAWire

Well then that's unfortunate. Although this is a consumer drive. Happy with mine. Won't lose any sleep if the games on it go kapoot. Easy enough to get back. You'll see differently once you learn the hard way.

Agree on all points, and want to add probably better to also get one with pen support in my son's case.. May be a factor for other parents to consider when buying thier children a PC for university

Picard123

One of the most important things when buying a laptop for a Uni student is getting one that's reasonably thin and light. Otherwise, lugging around a hulking laptop along with textbooks all day will drive him/her nuts and they probably won't tell you about it so as not to cause offence! The other 2 things worth looking about for are: - good battery life (desks in libraries, lecture halls aren't necessarily adjacent to power sockets and you can't realistically leave a laptop unattended whilst charging). - a decent keyboard (for obvious reasons!) I'd give this Lenovo a big swerve if you're looking for a laptop for a student.

Edsaid

Thanks for the suggestion, though I'm looking for 15.6 screen ideally. I don't need it till new job in a month or so, I'm just keeping an eye out atm (prime day was annoyingly bad)

Hi, this any good? I think it's perfect for uni. Long battery life and quality IPS display with touch function. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Acer-Spin-5-13-3-Inch-Intel-i3-2GHz-4GB-128GB-Windows-Laptop-Black-/332562572122

petermcgregor14

Lets just agree to disagree. I have DDR3 in my main PC which I use for gaming still. Yes it is sufficient. However I bought my RAM 4-5 years ago. If I was buying a new laptop now for around £400 I would expect to get DDR4 RAM. An I3 with 4GB RAM and a 500GB normal hdd (not sshd) would be sufficient for what most people will use this laptop for. However the point still stands that it is around £400 and therefore one should expect budget-mid range specs but still the latest generation. 7think7 did not say the technology was useless, that was your own judgement. I agree with them that for this price you should expect DDR4 that is all. Don't be so quick to criticise perfectly valid comments.

Oled screen !!!! (horror)

masterofimages

They're all pricey, though not quite as pricey as the Razer! :o And no real custom build alternatives available yet, so you're kind of limited to choosing from the pre-built options. I'm currently leaning towards the Alienware 13. That gorgeous OLED screen is calling my name <3

Rhoobarb

It is so funny the "lol gud 4 minesweeper" comments on these kind of laptops, like a GTX 1060 is no better than some crappy Intel integrated GPU. PCMR has never rung more true than it does these days.

DQ111111

I haven't, no. Now that you've mentioned it, I'll take a look. Razer is too expensive atm, I mean I could pick it up but is it really worth it when other alternatives are available...

maximusdecimus

Only game this would be useful for is counter strike in which it would be quite balanced between GPU and CPU. I'd rather it just had 12gb ram and put a 1070 and less SSD based storage.

Well, nobody whines here, we just having a heated debate 😄

manowarbruno

oh man just let this whining go

xxkichaxx

Just trying to tell people that this laptop is not going to keep up with new modern titles for long.

xxkichaxx

In a nutshell it depends on what you going to play. No for open world games, strategy games and to a lesser extent some online games (I.e. Battlefield). All other games should be fine.

xxkichaxx

Erm, how about the fact that I referenced a bunch of tests that show weakness of 4 cores without HT and I did mention quite a few AAA CPU intensive games that stomps i5. Here you go another example: Comparison of 7600k vs 7700k at 4.8GHz. They are from the same architecture and with pretty much the same IPC (overclocked RAM and 2 extra Mb of cashe are not making huge difference). 7300hq is roughly 37% slower than 7600k at 4.8 GHz, while 7700hq is 30% slower than 7700k. Watch video and extrapolate from those results, unless you don't know A GCSE math 😄

May I know how do you get 78.97? 1.05% ex VAT of 79.72 = 0.69755 79.72 - 0.70 = 79.02

eraldo

I can tell you with 100% certainty that 7,200 rpm drives are significantly faster at game loading times than a 5,400rpm drive. So if you use it for game storage then you will want a 7,200 rpm drive.

jimbodingo

Now £78.97 - 1.05% TopCashback also possibel.

CampGareth

Compared to an SSD they're all slow. I'm not sure what the point of 7200rpm drives is these days. Whoop de doo slightly faster but still slow sequential throughput and slightly more but still poor IOPS. In the meantime more heat, power and noise. Seriously though 7200rpm drives will be about 33% better on IOPS (the thing that really matters for desktop use). Meanwhile an SSD will be at least 1,000% better on IOPS.

Rookiereece100

Is 5400 not really Slow? 7200 is the Standard

cheers guys. might just got for an old style one while I wait for SSD's to get cheaper

aceuk

This drive is an SSHD, not a SSD. Big difference both in terms of performance and price. The H in SSHD stands for hybrid. It has 8GB flash + 2TB HDD which is managed transparently by the drive itself so you won't see multiple partitions. It's a SATA drive, so yes.

BlackAle

It's not solid state, it has 8GB of NAND cache. Yes, it's a SATA drive so can be used in a PC, though you may need a bay adapter as it's 2.5".

Thank you. You are correct that SSD+hardisk offers a better solution, which is what I use in the main. However we do have two machines with a compromise using hybrid SSD.

fiqqer

What you say is correct. These are designed for home use and in some circumstances they may be the best solution. Overall though I still maintain an SSD and a hard disk are a better solution. For only £10 (SSD plus hard drive) in total you will get something guaranteed faster in all circumstances and will be more reliable in the long term.

I believe I have just shone a light to an incorrect application of key factual knowledge (rather than a difference in opinion in my long comment just above). The key facts used incorrectly are summarised as: IT requirements were used for home requirements, in a nutshell.

Spark

I agree. I was looking at this but double the storage for an extra £15 is a no brainer really especially since it would predominately become my new Steam drive and SSHD is unlikely to have much of an impact on a drive just filled with games and the occasional video file. That and I already have AC Origins.

fishmaster

Hybrid drives don't work like that. The flash NAND portion acts as a cache, no games or other data get installed to the flash part of the disk. Algorithms determine which data is temporarily stored on the NAND to speed up access, this portion written to and erased multiple times in normal usage.

letterboxfortom

That's what she said

MrT2

Hybrid drives are not so useful for gaming consoles, the SSD section is fairly small (typically 8-32GB depending on the drive), so you'd only end up with either a small portion of each game on there or one game entirely on the SSD and the rest on the HDD, depending on how the file system works for each console. For a PC/Mac, it's more useful as the more commonly used files (operating system, common apps etc.) will be migrated onto the SSD section, and you'll notice the performance increase for those items only.

dxx

I'm not sure why anyone would buy this drive. For bulk storage, another £10 or so buys you something with double the capacity. For applications, a 256GB will perform vastly better, and cost around £10 less. I appreciate that this has some NAND built into it to act as a SSD-like cache, but it's slow NAND, and there's only 8GB of it, so with the best caching algorithms and most repeatable usage patterns in the world, it won't do much good.
