Drives 5/5 Stations 0/5

  • 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.

  • Summary: I tried to install it like a normal hard drive but nothing happened, and I tried to download the internal hard drive software from samsung's website and it wont run on win 7 64 bit(lol). Drive might have totally failed, what will suck because I had a lot of stuff on it.
  • Pros: While it worked it was a good external
  • Cons: It died

Too early to tell, but...

  • Summary: I've owned this for about a month, so my opinion may vary as durability may change this review. When it comes to hard drives, durability and performance are everything. As performance goes, the USB 2.0 interface is fast enough, but an ESATA option would be better.

Good product-while it lasted

Rick D., Newegg
1 June 2010
  • Summary: Bought it in October 2009, died in May 2010. Was dependable until I realized it wasn't showing in my list of drives. Under warranty but if I send it in, I lose 1.5 TB of data. I have another Samsung Story drive from January, hope it lasts a little longer. May have to salvage the drive out of it.
  • Pros: Fast and dependable, while it lasted
  • Cons: Died after 7 months, no power

  • Summary: Place your files in multiple HD's, things like family photos and your family home movies can't be recovered, also place them on free external server storage.
  • Pros: Got 3 of these, one died within days of usage, got a free replacement, still working, all three.
  • Cons: My first dead HD, just started clicking, stopping, restarting, then eventually stopped responding at all, load up and run your drives extensively to test them when you get them.

Reviews of 2 TB Story Station, not 1 or 1.5 TB, wanted

Lynn in PA "Lynn", Amazon
17 May 2010
  • Summary: None, not one, of the reviews that show on the page for the Samsung Story Satation 2 TB [Amazon's mispelling of 'Station,' not mine] are for the Story Station 2 TB external HDD as I type. All are for other sized HDD offering in this Samsung line.

  • Summary: I wish they listed the speed on the specification page.
  • Pros: It is really quite, cool, and solid.
  • Cons: I had to reformat the drives because I couldn't copy machine images on to the drive. The file transfer speed is very slow. I got 3 of these drives because of the reviews.

No problems yet, but...

Aaron W., Newegg
3 January 2010
  • Summary: It would be EXCELLENT if I could edit or alter the rest state timing!!! Get on it, Samsung!
  • Pros: Big capacity, easy installation, power switch on front, white LED light underneath.
  • Cons: Spools down and rests after 5 minutes. Respools and requires a 8-15 second restart when you want to access it. Slow USB transfer speeds. The stop/restart thing drives me crazy!

Rip Off now

W. P. T. Fletcher, Amazon

  • Summary: Paid 64.20 and got the tax back just 2 month ago so why has it nearly doubled in price. I have several of these hard drives. Good Points, 1. Cheap ... when I bought it anyway. 2. Reliable and robust - been dropped a few times. 3. Quality look and feel. 4. Quiet operation. 5. Convenient size.
