So far so good.

Samuel Clemens, Amazon

  • 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.

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.

  • 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: Rapid and cheap. I generally purchase Seagates, but due to the amount of failures I have observed lately, I decided to give Samsung a try. Glad I did. A small loud, wouldn't advocate for a HTPC where sound would be a concern. 2x in RAID for two weeks now, no trouble however.

  • Summary: No question about the value and preformance. Although me and my friend brought these drives and 2 months later we both keep getting "Windows has detected a hard drive problem" messages... These go away after a defrag, but come back a few days later. I would consider other options if I was looking for a hard drive.
