  • Excerpt: I consider this is the third of this model Samsung 1TB drive that I have purchased from the Egg. I have most of the other model Samsung 1TB drives also, nine in all. This one particular came shipped in the plastic clam shell, wrapped in bubble wrap in it's own generic box, in the box. Quiet, rapidly, reliable, and at a good price tag. They had been not all at this price tag. Nearly time to commence getting Samsung 2TB drives.

  • Excerpt: Absolutely the quickest mechanical drive I've ever utilised. MBps in HDD Tune Read test. Almost double my aging Seagate 7200.ten 500 GB. Windows 7 64 now boots more rapidly than my 7200.10 can return from Hibernation. Same machine, just unique tough drive. None actually so far. The only damaging is that the warranty is only 3 years, vs. 5 from other makers. This is the least expensive upgrade you can do if your challenging drive is three yrs or older.

Solid, reliable, quiet

  • Summary: I have two of these in my Synology DS212J Raid enclosure and bought a third as a brand-new unused matching spare for when Murphy's Law struck and I needed to replace one of the fitted Raid drives. For the last couple of years the third drive has sat untouched in the original packing because after a quick and painless install the pair in the Raid box have functioned perfectly. With any luck the spare will never need to be used.

  • Excerpt: Fantastic drives, bought 4 of this and put them into a RAID ten hardware config. Quite quick, extremely quiet. Windows 7 hasn't had any concerns with the setup, reporting two TBs. Just had a single die almost a year to the day of obtain. Samsung's help web page doesn't have a listing for this model for some explanation so getting help will be an issue. Nonetheless a excellent drive though. Just hoping the other three don't fail on me ahead of I get a replacement.

  • Excerpt: Super quick, averaging 240MB/s in Raid . They're quiet as effectively. Setup was easy. None. Got two of these for just over 100$, can't beat that. Samsung HDs are reputable. I would propose these over a WD or Seagate any day.

  • Excerpt: Fast (NCQ appears to make very a difference). Quiet. Low cost. Purchased it as an added storage drive. Newegg did a very good job packaging it, and thus I didn't have to deal with a DOA...yay! No indicators of any of the usual symptoms of a "bad" drive as of yet ...maintaining fingers crossed. No SATA cable or directions, but then once again it IS after all a bare drive, so not actually a substantially of a con.
