Poor reliability - no warranty info

Petey-T, Amazon
13 January 2011
  • Summary: Bought 2 of these in sept 2009. Used in externarnal storage, so not used often. Always kept cool. 1st drive failed after 1 year. Sanding website suggests sending it back to where it was purchased and offers no warranty direct! Hope the 2nd drive lasts a bit longer - 1.5TB is a lot if data to lose!!!

Unstable drive

hberg, Amazon
8 November 2010
  • Summary: Shame....i had high hopes for this one. It seemed to work fine for the first few days, taking up about 500GB of music, video, photos. However, it soon became unstable, snarling up my PC (an i5 processor, 4GB RAM, P7 motherboard ; super slick until this point). Anyhow, finally gave up at the 30 day point of no return to Amazon (not their fault, mine for perservering, trying various Disk Checking programs to no avail).

DOA and wouldn't have known if I hadn't run a full format

Steve, Amazon
19 August 2010
  • Summary: This item would not complete a full format under either XP or Windows 7 and whilst trying to find Samsungs diagnostic tools I came across many bad reviews on this item from other sites selling the same item (and other 1.5TB drives for that matter). When completing the Samsung diagnostics the drive was found to have multiple and I mean 100's here of bad sectors, not really what I would expect from a new disk.

Faulty sata HARD DRIVE

Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this SATA hard drive from Amazon and a company called AVIDES Media AG supplied it. It took a number of days to arrive It was easy to fit, but initially my PC would not recognise it and AVIDES Media AG were great advising on this. Then I discovered that it was faulty. (I sourced a SATA drive locally, fitted it and it was operational in 15 minutes) I returned it and it took long for my account to be credited.

Poor Packaging

A. Sykes, Amazon
17 January 2010
  • Summary: The disk was poorly packages and did not work when it arrived it made horrible sounds when connected. Normally I get annoyed when users rate a product badly because of delivery problems as it does not tell you about the product. However in this case I feel it is relvant because: 1. This is not a one off case. Reading the feedback on hard drives it happens a lot so is likely to happen to other customers.

Totalausfall nach 2 Jahren

lilly1, Amazon
3 September 2012
  • Summary: Die Platte war von Anfang an sehr laut. Nun nach ca. 2 Jahren absoluter Totalausfall. Nich einmal eine Neuformatierung möglich. Die Platte wurde in einem externen Gehäuse über USB betrieben und das nicht täglich, sondern für ca. 4 Std. pro Woche. Damit wurde die Platte wahrlich nicht überstrapaziert.Ich würde diese Platte nicht wieder kaufen.

Produkt kann Advanced Format (4K-Sektorgröße) enthalten

M. Abt, Amazon
13 October 2011
  • Summary: Entgegen der Spezifikation auf der Samsung-Produktseite verwendet diese Platte (zumindest mein Exemplar) das sog. "Advanced Format" 4K-Sektorgröße. Darauf fand sich bei meiner Platte weder auf der Verpackung, noch auf der Platte selbst irgendein Hinweis. Nach Problemen mit mehreren fehlerhaften Sektoren, die sich auch durch Überschreiben nicht korrigieren ließen (Schreibfehler!

  • Summary: Festplatte eingebaut und dann wollte ich sie formatieren und partitionieren, es kam mir schon komisch vor das ich 750gb partitonen erstellte mir aber immer noch angezeigt wurde das die Platte noch über 1450gb übrig hatte. nach 2 mal Rechner ein und ausschalten wurde die Platte nicht mehr erkannt, System fuhr nicht mehr hoch und das Teil war defekt nach 10min Laufzeit wer mal bischen forscht ist das kein Einzelfall,z.T bis zu 30% Ausfallrate, dann lieber ne andere Platte.
