FAST and reliable for a mechanical drive

howie, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: Best Mechanical hard drive i've ever had. reliable, VERY FAST for mechanical speed standard. it's actually very light, i believe there's only one single platter inside, which makes reliability even better. more platter, the more likely a drive will fail.

Installation was easy

  • Summary: This was a replacement for one which gave up the on me after the warranty ran out on my computer. Local repair people wanted to rip me off for replaacement. Microsoft software makes it easy and it helps that I had a laptop with the same software and both units anr set up on a network.

Fast, reliable, works great in RAID-0

Daniel Bonneau "DaClownie", Amazon
16 October 2011
  • Summary: Bought this drive when they were first coming out. Was really taking a chance because a faulty or unreliable hard drive is a nightmare. Almost a year and a half later, both of them are still running strong. The drives have been installed in a RAID-0 setup since day one, and they move amazingly well.

Pulsating vibration...unusable :(

NotTooPicky, Amazon
27 July 2011
  • Summary: I thought the noise was coming from fans originally, thinking maybe a bearing went out. The HD emits a continuous lower-frequency pulse over the period of a second or so that sounds as if it's spinning off-balance.

Samsung HD502HJ has a low pulsing hum!

scottls1 "scottls1", Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: I HAPPILY use a single WD Raptor 10k rpm HD for my C: System drive (WOW!- FAST!). I then went looking for a fast/Quiet slave HD?- I first tried a WD 640gig, and the "Loud" noise drove me NUTS! Neweg* let me swap it for this Sammie HD502HJ?- It is as fast or faster than the WD (lower priced too!
