Great, Big, Quiet Hard Drive

NikkoCSS, Amazon
13 October 2010
  • Summary: I just wanted to add my positive experience with this hard drive. This drive came with my HP Pavilion Slimline, which is a small enclosure so the computer itself gets rather hot. The hard drive hasn't had a single problem. Of course, I backup the contents to an external drive just to be safe. It is quiet, fast, and HUGE.

FAILED AFTER 12 MONTHS AS AN EXTERNAL DRIVE

Mitch, Amazon

  • Summary: Transferred all my critical data to this drive as backup when replacing main drive. Trashed all the data on the original main drive. Installed a nice new 1TB main drive and started to transfer data back from Samsung and the considerate little so and so just sat there clicking away with mechanical failure. Checked the samsung site and it is still under warranty. They will replace the drive but not recover the data.

Garbage

Brian Denslow, Amazon
16 November 2007
  • Summary: This drive died on me today after living at majority of its life (1 year) alone in an ATX "project" case. After only 124 power cycles, at least 20 of which occurred just today, this drive already has 103 bad sectors. Avoid.

Hard drive failed in 11 months

darth Sauran, Amazon
16 November 2007
  • Summary: This hard drive failed in 11 months. Initially I got warnings from S.M.A.R.T. that the hard drive is failing. In a few days, the hard drive started making loud grinding noises and the OS would hang after some time. I used this as a data drive (didn't install any OS on it). After reboots, the drive would work for a minute or so and the loud noise would start again. Samsung just replaced the drive with the same model. I hope it works a bit longer !!

Great, Believe or not!!

Antonio Ramirez, Amazon

  • Summary: I know lots of people have given a bad review about this HD. Well i doubt it, I've had it for 4 years now and havent had a problem with it. I dont believe it's even noisy, in fact you can barely hear it. In my opinion it a very good HD and very spacious.

Early failure

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 November 2007
  • Summary: This drive was included in my HP Pavalion M9457c. It worked perfectly for 120 days then had a hard failure. HP's warranty expired at 90 days. It was the primary drive. I was able to retrieve most of the files but couldn't boot the system nor access the original system image files. I'm disappointed in Samsung quality.
