cadoo -> Samsung Spinpoint F1 (12/9/2008 3:54:55 PM)

So it’s faster than the competition, cool and quiet, but obviously Samsung wasn’t happy with releasing just a great high capacity hard drive – it had to go and make it affordable too. At just a little over £73 the Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB works out at just over seven pence a gigabyte, which is frankly ludicrously good value for money, especially when you compare it to the more expensive and slower Seagate 1TB which sells for closer to £80.

There's also the competition from Western Digital, and while we’ve heard the Western Digital Caviar Black Edition 1TB drive might just be able to pip the Samsung in performance (something we’ll be looking at in a future review), right now it too is priced a lot higher than the Samsung, with prices floating around the £90 mark.

Putting it simply, we love the Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB. It’s everything a great enthusiast product should be; fast, practical, great value and affordable. Last week we said that the SSD, while starting to show some of its potential, was still a long way off replacing the conventional hard disk, and this drive is the reason why. With massive capacity, blazing performance and a price tag we can all afford, this is the hard drive we here at bit-tech would all buy. In fact, between us, we’ve just bought our sixth – how’s that for a recommendation?
