What an improvement

Mr. John L. D. Bradford, Amazon
9 January 2012
  • Summary: This hard-drive lives up to its reputation. Not only is it such good value for the size, I think its performance in terms of speed, reliability, longevity and quietness is quite likely to exceed whatever the manufacturer put in your PC originally. It is certainly streets ahead of the one in my Apple G5.

Amazing HDD

fast83, Amazon
31 May 2011
  • Summary: First of all, great packaging. And by great I mean GREAT. Finally no more waste of cardboard/plastic for useless boxes. Second and more important, I bought this hdd for my Popcorn Hour, formatted it on my mac, works wonderful mounted in the Popcorn, it just makes a little spinning noise when powered up, then you hear nothing more. It also doesn't produce that much heat, so I would recommend it if you do not have a big computer tower or lots of fans into it.

Cool and quiet

D. J. Bezuidenhout "DerekBez", Amazon
1 November 2010
  • Summary: Packaging was a big cardboard box stuffed with paper to stop it rattling around. The drive itself was in the usual plastic shell. Since this is a "budget" hard drive, I couldn't really expect more. I know some other folks have had issue with the packaging, but from what I know about hard drives, when not operating, they can tolerate pretty high G-forces. I wouldn't worry to much about it being banged about in the post.

Faulty? Not at all. Great hard drive.

Zeke Pliskin, Amazon
22 August 2010
  • Summary: I felt it necessary to redress the balance here. There seems to be a lot of speculation that these drives are inherantly badly designed and highly likely to develop a fault, which has not been my experience at all. I formatted my drive fully before setting it up as a storage drive for my media collection. Not one bad sector was reported. Three months later, the drive has only 300GB left so all platters have data stored on them at this point.

Great Product

I. Gillies "Ian", Amazon
1 March 2010
  • Summary: This hard drive arrived quickly and I had it inside my PC (using the enclosed screws) in about 30mins. Took about same amount of time to make my PC recognise it. Once it was recognised I did a quick format and that was it. I am using it for back up of all my files from 3 PCs and it copes easily. No noise from the fan when the PC case is all put together. Would have no hesitation in buying this again.

Great item could be one of the Best 1.5TB HD out there espeically for the price

Mr. Y. Gandhi, Amazon
18 December 2009
  • Summary: I have installed this HD in a Synology 109 server so far (been about 1month) its working great!It was very easy to install snap in one cable and screw in 4 support screws took me 5mins (you dont need to be a techy for this). The drive itself is pretty fast and for the most part fairly silent - i have it in my lounge and frankly the Virgin box Hard drive makes probably 5x more noise. The HD also looks pretty strong and well constructed - def worth a look!

Well worth considering if you're looking for low power/heat and decent speed

HLT, Amazon
19 October 2009
  • Summary: As noted by a previous reviewer, this is surprisingly fast, there's no sense that I'm working with a "slow" 5400rpm drive at all. I'd read that it was a speedy unit in other reviews, or I wouldn't have chosen it. But my main criterion was its low energy-use and heat dissipation, because I was aiming for a reasonably quiet PC without lots of whirring fan noise.

Devilishly fast!

Mr. C. Kay "Gadget Connoisseur", Amazon
23 August 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this drive elsewhere (needed a guaranteed next day delivery) so my review is based purely on the drive alone and not on Amazon's packaging of such delicate equipment, as questioned on reviews from other hard drives here. Samsung may not be market leaders in hard drives right now, unlike Western Digital and Seagate, but they unquestionably know how to make good hard drives.

  • Summary: Bei einer Festplatte von Samsung, bei Roßmann gekauft, komplett mit Netzteil und Gehäuse ist die Leseplatine kaputt,dise Daten hatte ich noch nicht gesichert und es sind von einigen Jahren Bilder drauf. Lange habe ich gesucht bis ich eine Samsungfestplatte gefunden habe mit identischer Nummer.
