Great hi capacity HD that can be used as a "Primary": fast, quiet and reliable

Francois Morel "FMo the Whizz", Amazon
7 April 2012
  • Summary: Usually 1TB and up drives are not so good as a "primary" HD for they are slow. Not this one ! I have 2 of them, one since about 1 1/2 year used as my "Primary" holding the Windows 7 Operating System (OS) and apps.

  • Summary: I was using this drive as my backup. One day I turned the computer on, got lots of disk errors. Next day it just disappeared. Wouldn't even appear on My Computer list. First Samsung drive I've ever had problems with. Samsung replaced under warranty.

Bought 1.5 TB at Newegg

Common Sense, Amazon
22 February 2010
  • Summary: Got tired of getting shafted by Amazons "free super saver shipping". Free should not mean delayed!!! Ordered 2 1.5 TB Samsungs at Newegg and they are great. Cost $109 each, shipped for free, and shipped FAST!!!! Amazon used to be my favorite. I can't say that anymore.

Disregard the guy complaining about the warranty

E. Gifford, Amazon
11 January 2010
  • Summary: Bought two. These are excellent drives. I did a raid 1 with a 200GB operating system partition on the inner cylinder. With a quarter-stroked drive, the read speed and random access speed put the 300GB raptor to shame.

Best HD I ever owned

RAD, Amazon
18 September 2009
  • Summary: I have 12 of these now. I had heat problems with other drives, but these run cool and quiet. Specs are great, and I have yet to have any problems whatsoever. Now that you can buy a dual-bay SATA dock for about $30, you can treat these guys as 1 TB cartridges and backups are easy.

Have 5 of these, need more! Bad drive could be a memory fault!

John E. Pombrio, Amazon
12 September 2009
  • Summary: Zipzoomfly has these at a great price, rebate, and free shipping. I have yet to fill one up so no reason for 1.5TB or 2TB...yet. Relatively quiet, runs a little hot if just sitting on desk so make sure a fan is blowing across the drive. NO failures after a year of use.

Excellent Archive drive

M. Burns, Amazon
6 September 2009
  • Summary: I purchased two of these drives to use in a raid-1 configuration as an archive volume and they have been good for that design. One reviewer complained about the long start time and idle time of these drives, but he should have done his research.

Fast, quiet, no problem with idle drive for me

nutume, Amazon

  • Summary: I am very satisfied with my Samsung 1 TB HD103UJ internal Hard Drive. I am using a Xion XON-SATA918ML_GR 18-Inch SATA II with Metal Latch Cable (Green) which seems to make it even faster. There's nothing not to like about it.

Drive Failed, Warranty Not Honored by Samsung

M. Shiffer "Mark", Amazon
7 July 2009
  • Summary: In general I have been a big fan of Samsung electronics over the years. I have a Samsung plasma at home and 2 Samsung LCD monitors that are great. My problems started with Samsung when I purchased two internal SATA II hard drives in November of 2008.
