Summary: This drive was purchased for replacement parts for a dead matching model, or so I thought. There are only a few parts that I needed off this drive, however upon receiving the drive, it does not match the shown part number. The ACTUAL part number on the part I received is SP1624N NOT SP1604N.
Summary: My SP 1604 N in a 2004 compaq Computer has worked fine for eight years. It is now warning me that it is about to fail. On start up it hangs at start and I have to punch F 2 to get it going. I was going to order this exact replacement but the review sounds awful. I have to do something and internal hard drives are not available at WalleyWorld or RS in my town. Guess I will have to go ahead and order this one and take my chances.
I have to recommend against this drive, perhaps this manufacturer in general.

Summary: The SP1604N drive came in a computer I bought. I was impressed by how quiet it was, that it seemed to stay cool even under the kind of conditions we have here in Florida, and the size was pretty good for my requirements. Because of the small cache size, I decided to get another drive, a WD 160GB, to store my data on...some of my research involved files that are well over 1GB and there was noticable lag with the Samsung drive.
es sind keine wirklichen Schnäpchen mehr möglich!!!!!

Summary: Na was soll man da noch viel schreiben. der Preis wäre gerade noch in Ordnung wenn die Sachen auch noch richtig funktionieren würden. Viele sichern sich ja mittlerweile so ab in dem sie schrieben nicht geprüft und so weiter ärgerlich sehr ärgerlich in diesem Fall läuft die Festplatte zwar macht aber öfters Geräusche wie ein MG. Ich muss wohl davon ausgehen das ich demnächst wieder eine neue brauche.
