Use this guy for storage, not for OS or games

Jared S, Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: This hard drive is great for storage but not much else. What does that mean? It means if you put your operating system, or stream video, or expect to play games that demand performance, you're going to be disappointed. Loading programs took forever with this beast, but boy does that Terrabyte really store a lot. I had all my movies and TV shows, my music and my games on this bad boy and had very little reason to delete anything ever.

Quiet drive

martok, Amazon

  • Summary: This drive is quiet, very quiet. It came with out cables - bare bones, but I knew this before buying. My main gripe is that I got 937.77gigs of space. I know you never get the full amount listed, but I would have expected to be somewhere of the ballpark of 970gigs - 990 gigs, 62 gigs and change is a LOT to lose.

Great Drive, Terrible Amazon Packaging!

Review Master, Amazon
7 January 2011
  • Summary: Ok so I was hoping that some of the previous reviews of terrible packaging were untrue but they are true. I received this drive in a small thin box, inside there was NO packing material at all. None, Nada... Wow. The plastic casing that the drive comes in was open, and the drive was just flopping away inside the box all the way to my house. How can a huge company like Amazon not understand how bad this is?

Horrid packaging. DO NOT BUY FROM AMAZON

PC_XS, Amazon
7 November 2010
  • Summary: DO. NOT. IGNORE. THE PACKAGING. WARNINGS. I REPEAT. DO. NOT. IGNORE. THE PACKAGING. WARNINGS. It's a terrible shame that my review of this product is getting marred by Amazon's completely deplorable excuse for "packaging". I was stupid enough to ignore other people's warnings about the packaging and ordered it anyway, and was even stupider to install the hard drive anyway despite it coming in a bigger box by itself with no packaging materials at all (meaning the HDD slid...

Good Drive Poorly Shipped

R. Vartian, Amazon
4 July 2010
  • Summary: I can attest to the very poor packaging and lack of regard to protecting the delicate, bare hard drive. After fully describing to customer service in an email and leaving packaging feedback....The replacement was packed just as bad, if not worse than this first. Just one air pillow on one side, nothing on other sides. Nothing on top and bottom. This is a bare OEM drive, not in retail packaging, so requires complete padding around whole unit.

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

Deiondre, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Great worth I got a negative drive on this go about. It goes to figure that I switched from my normal brand, since of terrible testimonials. I bought a network storage enclosure and four drives to insert into the network. Three of the drives synced devoid of a problem, but I had to return the bad drive.

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

Michon, pricebat.ca
20 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Yeah, it's pretty quick and didn't come DOA. A lot of space, no challenge with file transfers or installing an OS on it. It could just be that my case is mostly steel grates 黲 II Advanced) but the HDD is generally the loudest component if I'm not playing a game and the GPU roars more than it. Type of sounds like low grinding a lot of the time if it's doing something. Appears to work fine although, just my two cents. WOOO!! 1TB!!
