Started to fail after 6 months..

crackspackle, Amazon
29 January 2012
  • Summary: Hard drive was great when I first got it, had a fast transfer rate and the written detail about the item was exactly what I got. But after 6 months of use, it already has the S.M.A.R.T. error trip and I have to replace the hard drive. Was hoping the fail rate to be a little bit longer but it is covered by Seagates warranty (since Samsung sold their HDD division to Seagate).

What is the world is going on with Amazon shippin

AZ customer "Desert Hicker", Amazon
14 February 2011
  • Summary: I order 3 of these drives and they come stack one of top of the other NO PACKAGING what so ever. In a box. What in the world do you packaging guys think that are doing. I installed in a QNAP-410 and after 1.5 weeks of use, receive a disk 4 failure...... This is all created by band shipping practice and quality control. Drives themselves are not to blame in my eyes, for everything I read they are an excellent choice.

Another dead drive

Rachael Walker, Amazon
7 January 2011
  • Summary: I don't know for sure if I can blame the death after four hours of my new drive on the crappy Amazon packaging, but... well, it was crappy Amazon packaging, in the clamshell with only one layer of bubble wrap around it. After reading reviews here and elsewhere about dead drives that came in lousy packaging, the second I saw the box I was nervous. Drive installed fine. Windows 7 installed fine.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Duman, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Operates. Wow, the searching for on this drive is so loud. I thought there was a cable that was rubbing against a moving fan in my case. You have to mount this with rubber or your case will turn into a loud speaker for the seeking noise. I have 8 fans in my computer and this thing is way louder than all of them combined. Maintain looking.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

  • Excerpt: Worked great appropriate from the get-go. No initial difficulties. Following just more than a month, the thing started buzzing loud. Anywhere you go in my residence, you can hear it clear as a bell. I've read evaluations already that this model does do that from time to time.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Mahsa, pricebat.ca
19 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Low cost, rapidly, 1TB drives I purchased two of these, and both began generating a low-frequency pulsing noise following about 2 weeks of use. All the Wise data comes back clean, but I opted to return them for a refund from newegg although the 30-day return window was nonetheless open rather than have to deal with samsung on warranty troubles later. The Samsung help site has a properly-deserved reputation for becoming AWFUL.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Kerry, pricebat.ca
6 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I purchased two of these and planned on running 1 with Win7 and the other with Hackintosh'd OSX. They're low-cost and everyone has fantastic factors to say about them. I consider I got 2 negative drives. Installed Win7 on a single of them and it was stuttering/freezing. Opening straightforward programs took forever. The worst element is that it's loud! The HDD sounded like it was consistently "seeking," even at idle.

Ganska dålig

Gabbet123, Prisjakt
5 April 2012
  • Summary: Köpte denna i början på 2010. Nu är den trasig... Inte mycket använd, kan inte säga att den varit helt värdelös under tiden den fungerat men mina krav på en hårddisk är iallafall att den ska tåla mer än två års sparsamt användande! Inga andra hårddiskar jag haft tidigare har gått sönder även fast jag brukat dem låååång mycket längre och belastningen på dem varit mycket högre.
