    Thought I would share this with everyone as it looks like we have an awesome new drive from Samsung - The Samsung F3 1Tb!

    There are no reviews on the net so i'll post results I got here from ATTO v2.41 benchmark.

    140Mb/sec Read! These should keep everyone happy until the price of SSD's come down.

    Don't know what you searched for then ;) At least people might notice this thread, mine got left out in the cold. Although I think the average read you will find is closer to 120mb/s.

    I was going to ask the difference between F1,2&3 but I have now answered my own questions.
    Thanks!

    F2 = 2 platters 500Gb ea spin speed 5400rpm
    F3 = 2 platters 500Gb ea spin speed 7200rpm

    Me too, It's running as boot/storage for my Ubuntu server, which boots ridiculously quickly, although file transfers are network limited.

    Ironically, I was just having a look at getting a couple of F3 1TB, at ~£54 you can't really go wrong, they are impressive drives.

    Any views on noise compared to the F1 guys, the F3 should be quiter as its only got 2 platters. Seems to be the new leader of the pack

    I have my F1's and F3's on rubber mounts in my Antec P182 case and I cannot hear the drives at all.
