Total awesomeness.

John K., Newegg
10 March 2016
  • Summary: I think this is a good product. A websearch indicates that it's now owned by Seagate, which doesn't give me good feelings, because I have had trouble with a couple of their external disks. If you see a used one, it's probably worth getting if it's only a few bucks.
  • Pros: Practical case shape. I think it has an on-off knob. Bought in 2010, still working in 2015, but lightly used. The disk, however, was transported all over the place, so is suffered some shock and abuse.
  • Cons: Not really any.

5+ Years of Great Service

John S., Newegg

  • Summary: RIP XFSArchive1
  • Pros: Purchased this in January of 2010 and only now is it showing signs of imminent failure. I don't normally post reviews of products but this drive was very impressive. I'll miss it.
  • Cons: Light was cool but kind of annoying at times.

I love this hard drive!

Barista "P", Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased two of these a couple of years ago. I stored movies on one and music on the other. Instead of buying a third one for pictures, I bought a 2tb Fantom Green Drive. The cord accidentally unplugged on the Fantom external while I was transferring pictures from my computer to the external and...

John M., Newegg
31 July 2013
  • Pros: none really. Briefly held data.
  • Cons: 1st didn't work, RMA took FOREVER. 2nd one had enclosure that arrived malfunctioning. Transferred to another case. Transferred 3 TB to test, then 1TB for backup. Little to no use (maybe 50 hours), it's 7.31.13 No SMART warning, just quit working. babied it. Lesson: beware 1yr warranty. Samsung is...

User Review

Milan M., Newegg
24 November 2012
  • Pros: Looks good
  • Cons: Died after a bit over a year of very light use. The drive still works in a different enclosure which means that Samsung made a very low quality enclosure. From reading around, seems like a common problem. Will think twice before buying another Samsung product.

Drives 5/5 Stations 0/5

Manjula P., Newegg
12 August 2012
  • Summary: Took the drives out - no way I'll RMA and get Seagate drives in return. At least I can get an enclosure with eSATA or USB 3.
  • Pros: Genuine Korean Samsung drives, now gone forever. In my previous experience quiet, cool, reliable. Bought four at the closeout sale - drives all OK.
  • Cons: All four enclosures DOA. Havent't been able to figure if its the USB circuit board or the cute rotary switch.

Last genuine Samsung HD

Arnold M., Newegg
7 August 2012
  • Summary: Don't ever pull out its power plug from the outlet: it has Power On/Off Switch. In fact, you don't need to ever power it Off: once you disconnect USB cable or switch off your PC or player, the drive goes to Standby automatically and switches off power to HD inside the enclosure and light indicator.
  • Pros: Excellent HD inside. When removed from the enclosure and mounted inside PC, despite being green 5400rpm and Sata II, one can copy large movie collection to it much faster than to a 7200rpm Sata II Seagate due to high data throughput. After that you can put it back to the enclosure and hook to you...
  • Cons: None, once you consciously select this model for the HD inside. Excellent choice.
