    Most of you probably already saw this by now but I just thought for the people who haven't seen it yet and need a new hard drive at an amazing cost and huge space, this would be good for them to look at. :cool: This is an amazing sale on such a good product!

    3 of these in RAID 0 might make them worth it.

    Don't need RAID for a storage drive. $60 bucks is a good price. :)

    What do you mean by "good?" Fast or reliable?

    If I needed an additional TB the F3 is where I would go. The F1 I have is fast and reliable, and from what I read the F3s are faster than Caviar Blacks.

    Thanksgiving is coming up though and 2TB drives will probably be dirt cheap, last year I was able to get a WD Caviar Green 1TB for under $50.

    Hehe. Well generally speaking, Samsung = Well built products ;) And even specifically for that drive, the reviews speak for themselves.

    That is a good price for a decent drive.
    I can afford a few of them, but I have no use for them :/
