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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
