Works like it should

Ian, Amazon
3 June 2013
  • Summary: What can I really say? It's a hard drive. It can hold digital data. The one I got isn't faulty, it doesn't have any special features, but hey, buy it if you need a TB worth of space and you can afford the listed price.

Snappy, a little noise

The Yeknod, Amazon
20 July 2012
  • Summary: Snappy little drive. It does seem to make spin-up sounds on boot but then it quiets down, unlike a Seagate drive I have that makes a little click every few minutes and will probably fail soon. I use this as the main drive in my home theater PC and it's plenty fast. I thought about swapping this for an SSD as boot and this for storage but honestly it's fast enough for me.

Works as Advertised, "Average" Windows Exp. Index Score

J. West, Amazon
8 April 2012
  • Summary: I bought this hard drive in June '11 for a custom build, and it has worked perfectly fine. I just wanted to point out for those who are curious, that the Windows Experience Index subscore for this HD is 5.9. Carry on.

hoping for the best

  • Summary: Samsung Spinpoints have a good reputation for reliability; mine at least arrived in good condition and is working well. This is a "bare drive": no installation instructions, mounting hardware, power or SATA cable, so fine for replacement in modern PCs, but otherwise you may need to purchase at least a SATA cable

Great drive, go bigger if you can afford it!

Quadfinger, Amazon
9 August 2011
  • Summary: The drive performs as stated, good value for the money. Slightly better performance than WD Caviar black and at a better price. My only regret is that I didn't get the 2tb one.

Great drive!

David D. Davidson, Amazon
20 January 2011
  • Summary: I disagree with all the people rating the ITEM poorly because the PACKAGING is bad. The hard drive is actually very good. I mean, $55 for a 1TB 7200 RPM drive that has crazy high transfer rates? How can you NOT give it 4-5 stars? The problem is the packaging, not the drive. My drive was wrapped in a thin layer of bubble wrap held together with cheap scotch tape inside a plastic bag in a box. That's not really acceptable.

So far so good.

Samuel Clemens, Amazon
6 January 2011
  • Summary: It has been almost a couple months. Got 2 of these at a really great price. They both work fine. Tested them both for raid and not a problem. Not the fastest, but I don't play games anymore so who cares.

Bad packaging

tealpond, Amazon
30 December 2010
  • Summary: Okay, like many of the other reviews I have to say Amazon hasn't gotten the message yet. The packaging is bad, bad, bad. Two air pillows in a box much too big and the hard drive was bouncing all over the place. I am going to try this hard drive before I return it. My other hard drive is toast and I am having computer withdrawel. If it has a problem I am going to return it.
