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. Bad Points, 1. Anoying LED that lights up the entire room if backing data up over night - even on minimum light setting. 2. A bit slow. 3. Not stackable.
Summary: This product looks good and sounds good, ie no sound. However there were problems. I tried to transfer 280Gb of music over from another drive and it kept stopping at about 90Gb. The computer did not then recognize the drive. This happened three times which as you can imagine was very time consuming ,,,for nothing !
Summary: Since I've installed this drive (No problems there - straight in) it seems my PC has slowed down exponentially. I can't say for certain that this drive is to blame without some in depth investigation but it is suspicious that it started at the same time as installation. Other than that it does what it's supposed to do - eventually.
Major glitch frequently spoils an otherwise great product

Summary: I purchased 3 of these units in fairly quick succession to back up my burgeoning library of data. On the whole they have served me well however i am now forced to return one to amazon due to a commonly occurring glitch which i have seen mentioned in numerous reviews on the net but which is not always articlulated well. The energy saving feature of this device means that it automatically turns itself off following a period of inactivity.
Excerpt: Ho questo prodotto da più di un anno. L'ho acquistato naturalmente perché l'hard disk esterno è uno strumento indispensabile per chiunque abbia un computer. In realtà è stato il primo che ho acquistato, in quanto prima non facevo mai i back up del mio co ...
Pros: poco rumoroso, basso consumo energetico, grande capacità, autoinstallante
Excerpt: Después de haber poseído y utilizado una gran variedad de discos duros externos. He de reconocer que el Samsung Story Station es uno de los mejores en su variedad. La unidad viene bien embalada y parece que la mayoría si no todos los envases son fácilmente reciclables. La unidad está empaquetada en cartón reforzado que soporta la unidad muy bien durante el envío.
