Ok

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: It runs warm but not hot. Nothing special. Does the job. We'll c if this will last few yrs. If you want higher performance, you might want to consider other brands.
  • Pros: I've had this drive now for about 2 months and it's performs average from my non technical perspective. I use it as a second drive and not my boot, but the file copying to and from seem a lil slower then my IDE. It's subjective and not a real technical test. It's quiet and cost is on the low end.
  • Cons: .

No SATA cable?

Patrick S., Newegg
2 September 2006
  • Pros: Seems fine, but it didn't ship with a SATA interface cable, only a power cable, so I can't install it. Am I missing something obvious? There was only the one cable in the box. Do I have to buy the SATA cable seperately?
  • Cons: No SATA interface cable.

  • Excerpt: Про шум ничего не могу сказать, особенно не выделяется на фоне вентиляторов продувки и raid-массива ;) Для себя еще раз подтвердил мнение, что самсунг - это телевизор или простенький телефон. Все, что крутится - у них довольно посредственное, хоть HDD, хоть микроволновки.
  • Pros: Довольно хорошо держит температуру под нагрузкой - выше 38С не показывал даже при пересборке Gentoo в компактном корпусе. В простое - 36С при комнатной температуре 25С.
  • Cons: Обещанные 500000 часов до отказа - это весьма немного. У самсунга кака-то своя, особая математика, но диск живший в довольно тепличных условиях в виде системного в NAS'е (а это даже не каждый день запуск и пересборка системы раз в пол-года) помер довольно обидным образом. ; На практике первый сбо...

  • Pros: Günstiger Preis
  • Cons: Unangenehme Laufgeräsuche im Leerlauf, Geringe Zuverlässigkeit
