Summary: SAMSUNG M3 Portable 1 TB 2.5 inch external hard drive although I originally gave this Hard Drive a positive review I have since changed my mind- having transferred docs onto it for safe keeping I have found myself unable to retrieve anything from the HD.
Summary: I do not recommend this drive. Samsung sent me a reconditioned drive after the first one failed during my University course (inconvenient to say the least). The drive has failed again. Again, I do not recommend this drive.
Summary: I brought this after reading the reviews and i wish I'd paid more attention to the 1 stars now....only had it 2 months 1 week and it's just stopped working, pc or tv can't find it!!!! It's been kept level, never traveled or moved and just stopped....
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.
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. Don't bother buying this product
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...
Summary: I am not satisfied at all with the Samsung M3 Hard Drive. After six months of use (as back up drive) it simply stopped functioning. It cannot be recognized by any computer, PC or Mac. Even a Samsung PC will not recognize this external drive.
