Just dandy

  • Summary: I bit slower than some drives at waking up, but totally reliable. I use it for HD video editing, and it has been flawless.

Works like it should

  • 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.

So far so good.

  • 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

  • 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.

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...

Great drive, go bigger if you can afford it!

Quadfinger, Amazon

  • 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.

Excellent... So far

Couch_Potato, Amazon

  • Summary: After fiddling without success to get hardware raid 1 working on my Ubuntu Linux Box, I set them up in a raid 1 using software raid and have had no problems with the drives. Gkrellm reports 86.0 to 87.8 degrees fahrenheit temperature ~ 4 degrees cooler than my single 320GB Western Digital drive.
