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. I thought about swapping this for an SSD as boot and this for storage but honestly it's fast enough for me.

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!

  • 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. Nice quiet and so far trouble free!
