Summary: This is not the typical lifespan of a hard drive!!! I GOT LUCKY! I had another Samsung 1TB F1 hard drive that died within warranty. Fortunately, the drive gave enough warning signs for me to realize it was going bad (died within the 1 year warranty).
Pros: I never do reviews. Who has the time? But I will for this. This samsung turned out to be a good one. It's fairly fast as 750GB drives go. It's quiet. Runs cool. It has advanced audio management, NCQ, etc. At 88% full the read speed is only 58MB/Sec. Write is still 89MB/sec. Hmm. Odd. Anyhow, I've...
Cons: I have my hard drives set to go to sleep after 20 minutes of non-use. For some reason the past few months, when the drive is in sleep mode, it takes a long time to wake up. Other drives spin-up, click and ready to go. This one spins up, clicks then you wait and wait. Possibly 2 or 4 minutes befor...
Summary: I may order another one and do a raid 0 in the near future.
Pros: I have had this for several months now and it is a solid Hard Drive. Decent amount of space and it's Samsung, so you will get a top notch product with top notch warrenties. It has 32mb buffer memory, 7200rpm and has 750 gig of space. Kicking price for a kicking product.
Cons: Too bad it's not a 10,000RPM or 15,000RPM, but for 64.99 which is what I paid this is as good as it gets. Maybe the 10,000rpm and 15,000 rpm drives will come down in price eventually.
Summary: I have purchased about 5 of Samsung Spinpoint Products and all of them have been working great. I use these drives in my work station and in my gaming PC. Heck, I've even ordered 2 more today!
Pros: Love the 32MB Cache -- Best Value -- Best Performance -- If bought from NewEgg.com you've got GREAT SERVICE!!!
Pros: These drives are underrated in my opinion. The performance and durability is why I buy samsung drives. I used to only buy western digital and seagate drives but have moved away from them due to there unreliability. Samsung has not always been a good company for hard drives but I think things have...
Summary: Samsung Drives, Controler Chips, and Memory are in 75% of all electronic devices in the wold - they make the best displays, why would you consider anyone else? If Samsung makes it, thats what I use for my build - along with ASUS, Intel, AMD, EVGA, Sapphire, Corsair, G-Skill, OCZ, etc - LOL, even...
Pros: Purchased over 100 samsung HDDs from newegg - NEVER ONE FAILURE - EVER. Always BEST performance to price ratios!
