    Hi. I am thinking of upgrading my Sky Plus box to 120GB. I have found this and wondered if it will be ok. Has anyone out there used this drive.

    Samsung SpinPoint P SP1203N 120GB ATA-133 2MB Cache - OEM (HD-005-SA)


    Your thoughts please.....

    Thanks Mark.

    I have tried a 40GB spinpoint & there is a posting of someone using a 120GB spinpoint drive. They both seem to work but caused the fan to run continuously in a v2 box. This was a while back & the newer revs of firmware may have sorted this.

    It will work on a V2 Sky+ box.

    I put this hard disc in mine on Sunday!

    It works really well!
    The fan comes on no more than it did with the original HD.

    Mine is excellent, & lots cooler than standard - less fan. Look in the 'what hard drives to upgrade' posting. I'm a big fan of + & a BIG fan of the Samsung drives.

    the new software seems to have cured the 17min bug so I put in a maxtor 120Gb drive.

    Very easy to do and no problems so far.
