    Samsung F2

    Anyone got one of these yet?

    Was thinking about getting either a 1TB or 1.5TB one in the next couple of months as a data disk, cannot believe the great price, under £80 for 1.5tb! My F1 cost me £85 not 12 months ago and have only got 100gb left.

    http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=18978 (not sure if the deal is still available since the article). I have the F2, and it's fine. Not the fastest drive, but tied for the most quiet amongst traditional drives (non SSD), and fast enough that I don't mind using it as an OS drive (for now).
