!!! INCORRECT DESCRIPTION !!! BAIT AND SWITCH

David, Amazon
10 March 2011
  • Summary: The description says this is a 2TB drive. It is not, it is a 1TB drive. THIS IS FALSE ADVERTISEMENT AND SHOULD NOT BE PURCHASED BY ANYONE.

Great Drive, Great price

Rhonda S., Newegg
21 May 2010
  • Summary: Idk what these other reviewers are saying.. just cause you got a bad drive, don't mean you can review it 1 star.. I've had this drive for about 3 months now, and it's amazing. I've also got two other of this same drive, all work amazing.
  • Pros: Size, Price, Looks, Fast, Quiet!
  • Cons: The light on the front is ultra bright, like crazy bright. (but only on when your downloading stuff to the drive) so if your using the drive at night.. good luck sleeping.. but not that big a deal for most.

Good Backup Drive

Bill K., Newegg
7 May 2010
  • Summary: Drive comes formatted with fat32. I reformatted to ntfs in order to store larger files than 4 gig. After formating I ran a scan for bad sectors and found none. I didn't keep the software that came on the drive because I use the drive image backup utility built into Win7.
  • Pros: Good price for a 1TB external drive. Unit operates with very little heat. Very little sound operating. Good throughput speed. Fast backup of a system drive. I have had good luck with Samsung drives.
  • Cons: No on-off switch. Poor written instructions. Nothing about the software that is on the drive.

Dead in the box

Kyle T., Newegg
4 May 2010
  • Summary: Not a large fan of the distributor NewEgg not being responsible for the return, forcing their customers to deal with the manufacturer direct.
  • Pros: Reasonable price, you get what you pay for though.
  • Cons: Arrived dead in the box. The RMA process is done at Samsung, no clear instructions but you can navigate the site.

Decent HDD

Daniel B., Newegg
28 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought a digital media player online. When it arrives I'll post whether or not the HDD works flawlessly on it or not. If it does, then I will be able to state for sure that the issue lies strictly with the XBOX. Other than my ranting about the above issue, this Hard Drive is awesome.
  • Pros: It's Samsung, it's quiet & it's sturdy.
  • Cons: It's big, for one. I use this thing, primarily, on my XBOX. I have over 900 movies and shows saved to this portable HDD. Roughly 1200gb. The problem is that after EVERY movie or show, regardless of the length or size, it will kick me out and say that the Hard Drive cannot be found. This happens 4...

  • Summary: The price befits the quality of the unit and I am happy I bought it over some of my other choices. It works well for it's intended purpose (BACKUP). I will buy another when I fill this one.... From NEWEGG of course.
  • Pros: Looks, Capacity, Price, Feel (overall quality and weight, holds itself on smooth shiny surface), power saving, and plug and play ease of opperation. Stays cool
  • Cons: No switch for power (not a huge deal), seperate power cord (I know this is common but it would be nice if they could power via usb), formatted fat32. I had to reformat to ntfs in order to store any files larger than 4 gig (movies are easily larger). Software is sort of redundant unless you don't ...

BEST DEAL if you are looking for 1TB under $100

Hansol S., Newegg
18 April 2010
  • Summary: I was looking for and external hard drive that can fulfill 1TB, on/off switch, e-sata(if possible), stability, not bulky, and less than $100. Altough There are lots of external hard drives have 1TB under $100, there are no specification of hard drive's manufacturer.
  • Pros: This samsung 3G STATION has really nice and simple design. I copied huge amount of files which took 3 hours in a row, but it doesn't provide much heat and still stayed pretty quiet(really stable). When touched by hand I can only feel it bit warm(almost room temp.). Although it doesn't have on/off...
  • Cons: It's a bit heavy, no esata port(too bad), and on/off power switch( may only applys to some people)
