Samsung F3

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I want to pick up one of these. But, I'm undecided if I should go with the 500gb or 1tb. The drive will used for my os and games. I plan on using an external for music and school.

Is the 1tb worth the extra $15?

Well the 1TB is totally worth it if you want the most for the buck...

No reason to go the extra mile if you don't need it tho.
Games take up a BUTT LOAD of space.
I just took down GTA EfLC today, It alone freed up like 16 gigs of space. tongue.gif
Other games will probs take up 4-8.
Depending on how many games you want to install at the same time and the ammount of software you got... buy accordingly.

the price difference makes it worthwhile to get the 1tb
not so long ago they were both on sale for $55 on the egg

Yeah, I might fill that 500gb up faster than I think. I'll order the 1tb.

The Samsung F3 is probably the best HD I can find at $55?

Yeah pretty much. At least when it comes to reliability.
Good luck m8!

If you're using it for a secondary drive (which I'm just hypothesizing) you might want to look into the F4. 2TB at 5400rpm with 32mb cache.
