Do Not Buy This Product.

Summary: Do not buy this product. When I attempted to download the preloaded software, guess what. Not compatible with Windows 8.1. The software that was on the drive was at least two years old. I purchased this item because I believe in Samsung. Not this time. I went to their website to try to download more recent software for the drive. Forget it. I have never written a one star review in the past. This product should not even be sold by Amazon.
Summary: The shipment was on time. The External Hard Drive works fine with the Samsung LED TV. We use it to store pictures and run them on the TV. Easy to use. Much easier than having 10 USB sticks:) Would buy again.
Summary: I bought this specifically for downloading my cd's into digital format, without taking up hard drive space on my laptop. I've also never been one to back up my computers, but the M3 makes it very easy, automatic. The size makes it very portable, and the USB 3.0 transfers files as though it were moving it from folder to folder on the laptop's internal hard drive. Samsung products are OUTSTANDING!
Summary: this hard drive was great when i bought it, but now it has randomly stopped working. I'm not the only one that has had this problem. I've looked online and it seems that a lot of people have had this problem.
Summary: Transfer speed is quite fast, everything seemed a-okay, until one day it up and died... about 3 months into ownership. A quick google search of "Samsung M3 portable not recognized" or "beeping" or "dead" tells you all you need to know... only known fix is -- no joke -- smashing it into a wall and hoping for the best. Hasn't worked for me, and as it died while transitioning to my primary backup...
Hope this is as good as other Samsung hard disk products

Summary: Using this for back-ups. Hope it works on D-day if needed in the future. The product looks great and durable and works perfect so far. Got this at a special Samsung offer so a good price as well. Wait for another deal and get one! The only sad thing was that I wanted the 1TB version which was only 20 dollar more - as I had it in my cart and was shopping for other items it ran out of stock and I could no longer check out on that 1TB item.
