  • Summary: Not the HD103SJ as I had expected and ordered (and as written under the Item Model Number under the product details page). I was shipped the cheaper and slower HD103SI model. Very disappointed.

both disks failed in under a year. Manufacturer says they're out of warranty...

  • Summary: I purchased 2 of these back in September of 2011. As of July of 2012, both disks have significant uncorrectable errors and are unusable. Manufacturer's warranty is supposedly 1 year. Samsung/Seagate websites says they are out of warranty. I would beware of this seller and these drives. I have been completely unsuccessful at getting these bad disks RMA'd.

THIS PRODUCT IS FRAUDULENT!

Hank Gallegos "Hank Gallegos", Amazon

  • Summary: Avoid this at all costs! This is NOT the actual HD103J model! It is actually the inferior HD103I model, and the rpm is actually 5,400, not 7,200. Everyone that has been mislead by this product and ordered it should seek a refund or exchange immediately.

Great product, horrible packaging.

J. Ricker, Amazon

  • Summary: I have quite a few of these HDD that I purchased from newegg.com. I decided to get one from here, ignoring the previous complaints about packaging. Well, it still exists. The HDD was sent in a rather large box with minimal airbags. The HDD only had a plastic shell around it, they couldn't even bother to wrap it in bubble wrap. Needless to say, I will not be buying anymore fragile computer parts from amazon.

Click, Click, Click...

  • Summary: Samsung 1 TB Spinpoint 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.5 inch Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive HD103SJ I can't comment on the drive itself because when I received it I heard the infamous "click." Just like everyone had said before me my hard drive came in one layer of bubble wrap with a couple of air pillows in a huge box. No wonder the drive is dead. Sent it back for a refund. I'm going to order it from somewhere that knows how to ship a hard drive.

Horrible Packaging... not worth the risk!

  • Summary: While the product itself gets rave reviews, it was shipped in a manner that easily can damage the product. This order shows that high tech items shipped from amazon are a gamble and often not worth the small savings.

Terrible Packaging - Don't buy it!

J. Hudson, Amazon
7 January 2011
  • Summary: First of all this is a great hard drive - BUT I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW THEY SHIPPED IT! The hard drive was in a clear plastic "blister" type package, and it was laying in the bottom of a box with a couple of other items. Sure enough, after just a couple of days of use, I started to make a drive image with Acronis 2010 and it failed. I then downloaded and ran the Samsung Hard Drive utility and it showed a number of disk errors. Surprise, Surprise.

Check your warranties. Amazon says 3 years, Samsung has drives flagged as 0!

nikecmh, Amazon

  • Summary: Title says it all. Amazon states they come with a 3 year warranty. When you enter the serial number into Samsung's Hard Drive Warranty checker it comes back with a 101 code meaning absolutely 0 warranty support from Samsung. I ordered 2 and they were both the flagged like that. From the reviews here it looks like I am the only person who actually bothered to check if their warranty was valid 0.o They came well packaged if it is any consolation.........

Samsung - 5 STARS Amazon.com - ZERO STAR

M. LEE "zhanggoo", Amazon
7 January 2011
  • Summary: Samsung F3 is a great disk drive. It is one of the fastest and quietest hard drives. However Amazon.com packaging is awful. Let's me repeat. It is awful and horrible and I would not buy a hard drive from Amazon.com again. It came with no bubble-wrap - just a clear plastic cover. And the box was filled with one air-pocket. The drive was lying flat on the bottom of the box.
