Summary: Just to mention i 've had this hard disk in my PC for 5 years without the slightest problem. I've changed my PC today but i keep this disk as a slave to the new SSD drive. Very pleased with this product.
Summary: I am no expert but this was easy to install, works perfectly and is pretty quiet. I had to rebuild the c-drive and left this attached (I backed up the spinpoint data to an external drive ) I need not have worried as the contents were all present and accounted for after the rebuild.
Summary: This is the first Sata drive I have bought and what a difference it is to my Diamond Max IDE drive that sounds like a marble in a biscuit tin. The drive arrived quickly and was easy to install Vista onto, its quiet and much easier to fit into my computer than the IDE drive. I would say that if you need a drive that's not too expensive then give this drive a go.
Summary: The Samsung drives are quiet and perform well. I've used these in a media center PC that sits under my TV.

Summary: I've got four of these drives, they're not the quietest thing ever, but I've had no problems with them and at 12p per GB who can argue. I've got them set up using RAID given the comments here on reliability, but as I say so far no problems
Summary: My previous pc had started making funny noises from the hard drive so a backed everything up and though I would have a go at replacing the hard drive - bought this from 500GB Samsung from Amazon as it appears to be the top internal hard drive at the moment, turned up next day - installed it and it works a dream - seems much faster than the old standard drive and I now have a massive 500gb and all for under £65 quid - what a touch !!!
Excerpt: "I purchased this drive earlier this month to replace 2x Maxtor 200gb drives, I chose this drive after reading a review in a computer magazine. As with all SATA drives installation was a simple case of connection the SATA and power connectors (as this drive is OEM it does not come with any cables so make sure you already have them or purchase them separately). The drive is almost silent in operation, even during intensive use and it is very fast compared ...
