Still running solid

Anonymous, Newegg
17 October 2015
  • Summary: Solid, stable, long life drives.
  • Pros: Rock solid (2 of in same machines) for over 4 years. Quiet until spin up due to power save features.
  • Cons: Power up noise and slow refresh

Solid workhorse drive

James W., Newegg
11 February 2015
  • Summary: I have used this drive as part of a 3-drive software RAID5 array on a Linux server for over 4 years now. The array sees regular heavy I/O traffic as it is the staging space for Amanda backups of all boxes on a small home network before the backups are written to LTO tape.
  • Pros: This is a good, reliable drive for intermittent use. I can't comment on how it would perform in a desktop role or in 24x7 service in a server, but for my purposes it has been rock-solid for going on 5 years. See "other thoughts" for more details. Runs cool and quiet.
  • Cons: None for the purposes I've used it for.

Great hard drives

Ricardo F., Newegg
25 May 2013
  • Summary: 2nd try with a Samsung drive. First was a while back, and it failed miserably. However, HD manufacturer's reliability seems to ebb and flow, and Samsung seems to have come a long way. Would definitely recommend.
  • Pros: Been using this in a Citrix Xen server environment, running 24X7 for the last 3 years, with no hitches.
  • Cons: None

Excellent drives!

Nicholas M., Newegg
10 December 2012
  • Summary: One can't get 'real' Samsung disk drives anymore...
  • Pros: They are quite cool running compared to the old Seagates I replaced. SMART reports 28746 power on hours (3.28xx years!) -- with ZERO reallocated sectors -- for -8- drives, RAID5! Performance is very good, even when used as a single drive.
  • Cons: Seagate now manufactures Samsung disk drives.

Samsung, the best drives ever

Yuri J., Newegg
30 November 2012
  • Summary: I've owned this drive for over 3 years. My drive is one of the original drives made by Samsung before Seagate took over the Samsung drive product line and turned it into a disaster. The guarantee recently expired and the drive is working just fine.
  • Pros: Quiet, reliable.
  • Cons: Samsung doesn't exist anymore, and seagate drives suck.

Good Price & Performance

Keven H., Newegg
30 August 2012
  • Summary: Bought several Seagate 2 Tb drives. Out of 6 drives 3 had problems and had to be RMAd. Not sure if 2 Tb drives in general have more problems? Or if Samsung has more reliable drives than Seagate?
  • Pros: Chose these drives for a home server on which I planned to run a relatively large RAID5 array. Given the recent changes with Advanced Format drives I wasn't sure if I would have compatibility problems with drives that were using 4k sectors and the versions of Windows I was installing. Since this ...
  • Cons: None.

17 months

Anonymous, Newegg
14 August 2012
  • Summary: Good drives, Seagate bought this division though. And the more I learn about Samsung, the less I like them. So I won't be buying anymore of their products anyhow, even if they still made these.
  • Pros: 17 months, still going. Have two in a Synology DS212j raid 1. No errors yet, but it's time for a couple WD blacks. These are discontinued, and 18 months is my threshold to replace. I'll probably move these to external drives and use them for a backup of a backup.
  • Cons: Discontinued.

2 years and still working

Christopher D., Newegg
15 September 2011
  • Summary: These are used as storage drives and I burn dvds off them as well. No major problems. Seems these drives are deactivated on newegg's site. Casual glance these seem to have been replaced by the spinpoint series, or at least the stats are similar.
  • Pros: When I bought 2 of these they were relatively cheap. 2 years and a month after purchase I'm still using these drives and have yet to have any major problems.
  • Cons: none really they are slowish but that goes w/o saying since they are 5400 drives but still plenty fast enough for storage
