Summary: This hard drive might have been good. IF it had powered on and actually worked. But none of that happened so I can't say. However, the seller didn't ask any questions and immediately credited my account.
Summary: I bought this drive because it showed up under the 2.5 drives. Nowhere in the description does it give a physical size. I receive the drives and find out they are not at all what I expected or wanted.
Summary: I bought this drive 1.5 years ago and it is just failed on my Qnap 219P+. Very disappointing fortunately it was setup as raid 10. I was not using it heavily occasional laptop backup, etc nothing exotic like video or sound streaming.
Summary: I miss the true Samsung drives. Out of the 8 hard disks I have in my NAS the four HD203 and HD204 Samsungs are the only ones that have never had a problem and are going strong after 3-4 years.
Summary: Purchased 5/3/2011 today, 12/13/2011, I had a failure of one of the drives in a RAID array. I went to RMA with Samsung only to be directed to Seagate who directed me to Samsung who directed me to Seagate. Yes, you read that right.
Summary: The recent reviews are correct. You are not buying a Samsung HD204UI when you buy this drive. It is mislabeled in Amazon, and I hope they do something about it. When you get the drive it will have a Seagate logo with the model: ST2000DL004 HD204UI Green.

Summary: the hard drive is a very good size however it worked fine for a year and then one day it just stopped. made some horrible clicking noises and refused to boot. the computer was on for basically all the time...
Summary: Bought one of these based on the majority of reviews being positive and also being a loyal Samsung customer, however, on this occation I was not impressed. Drive arrived powered up, but would not appear on my computer.
