Customer Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value, reliable and fit for purpose This is the second 2TB hard drive of this model that I've bought. The first was 3 years ago and it has worked fine, in almost constant daily use since day one. I purchased and installed the second hard drive a few weeks ago to enable me to do full automated backups of all of my data from my SSD (solid state drive - which I use as my boot drive) and my other 2TB HDD. I am happy with this product. I have found that with 2TB of disk space, it has plenty of capacity, and even after 3 years, I've only used just under half of the available disk space. For me the requirement for a second hard drive was primarily driven by the fact that the windows operating system requires a separate drive from the one your data resides on, to do a full back up. It fitted nicely into the Corsair 650D case which houses my extreme performance pc. Another important consideration for me, was that this drive is competitively priced, it is currently at least 25% cheaper than the first one I bought. Performance is also good, games like World of Warcraft run happily from it without the need to be installed on the SSD. For the price and given specifications, I would recommend this product. I think it deserves its current 'Hot Seller' tag. I also like the delivery service from Scan, which I have found to be reliable and quick. 23 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by top quality product top item delivered as fast as any item I've ever ordered online. Amazing service and value..... 20 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little drive unit. brought one of these drive as a back up storage for my main SSD. Had no problems with it, and backup and copies files really fast on my current system. 18 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what I bought it for. Needed a bigger, faster drive, and that's what I got! A good price, plus the added protection of the installation insurance. They also helped me resolve a payment issue and didn't moan when I wanted to try a couple more times "just to be sure". :) 25 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality and value for money Used to transfer my system from quite a small SSD - although a bit more sluggish than the SSD (to be expected) this disc still performs well and of course has much more storage. Very good value for the amount of storage it provides. 14 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Money well spent Very good value for money. I would recommend Scan to anyone looking for a resonably priced component for their computer. If you have any questions concerning the item you wish to purchase or have purchase they are only to happy to help. 22 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Doest what it says on the tin this is a great size hard disk and does what it says on the tin, i personally use it for games, i have a ssd for the more intensive games, but this was a nice size a good price to store my other games, loads them nice an quick, over all recommended for storage 20 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hard drive! I've thrown everything onto the drive and now I barely touch my external. Very happy with this purchase. Quiet, fast transfer speeds, I'm never waiting for it to spin up like some old drives of mine *shudder*. Happy customer! 10 December 2014

Answer: 
I wouldn't suppose it would matter a great deal, obviously a sata 3 type but the performance variance would be minimal, cosmetic and manufacturing differences may be a factor though so my advice it to get one from a manufacturer you know/trust, failing that get the shiny ones, everybody loves shiny things.

Answer: 
SATA cable chice depends on your computer. They are all pretty cheap. Almost certainly a 90cm Scan SATA Cable Straight to Straight (Scan Code LN33894, 95p each!) will be fine. This has "Locking Latches" which is a nice bonus as without the latch the plug can come loose while fiddling in the PC case. But you can buy cables with right-angled connectors too, or shorter cables. Buy what suits you best - or buy a selection - you can't go far wrong at the price!

Answer: 
You need a serial ATA SATA cable.
Generally you connect the smaller SATA cable to the hard drive and the power supply needs to connect into the other ATA slot with my experience of installing this.

Answer: 
Hi I've just posted a review which probable answers most of your questions. I initially thought that resource hungry games like World of Warcraft were best installed on an SSD (solid state drive), but I found that installing them directly onto this hard drive, caused no noticeable loss in performance at all, and also saved space on my SSD which is only 120GB in comparison.

My experience of this drive has been good. It probably also helps to have a good quality power supply, which helps to protect your components from any surges in power etc - I use a corsair HX 850 Watt , which I bought from Scan. It comes with a 7 year manufacturer warranty which is a good indication of the quality. Hope that helps.

SATA 2 or 3 Mb

How recent is SATA 3? I have a workstation a few years old that needs some additional storage. I assume it's SATA 2. I have no plans to build a new PC so apart from future proofing drive usability is there any point in buying a couple of these?
