Wonderful HD

Kenneth Deming, Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought this because I already have a 1TB in my other computer. I wanted more space for a video project I'm working on. I like the things Samsung has been doing with technology and this is just as great as my first one.

2 setup in a NAS BOX, WORKS WELL

Terry D., Newegg
24 July 2013
  • Pros: Bought these for my Synology DS212, work fine. Can't say I've stressed them much but hey they're not advertsed to be the fastest. With the power savings, there just right for NAS box.
  • Cons: none except price was high on all HDD's at the time.

Discontinued?

Kenneth C., Newegg
12 January 2013
  • Summary: Minus one egg for not being available anymore.
  • Pros: I run 2 of the old ones and 1 of these "newer" models. All 3 run like the dickens, simply put. I haven't had ANY problems with the "new" seagate model. Why people say "don't buy this" when not everyone has the same problems they have is beyond me. I'm sad that I can't get one more to top out my l...
  • Cons: Not for sale anymore. Makes me sad. Guess I have to concentrate on my FreeNAS server with different drives.

Awesome

James D., Newegg
8 January 2013
  • Summary: Was huge... then I ran out of space. Now I have to buy another.
  • Pros: Huge, Quite
  • Cons: Will turn off is not in use; so when you access a file it will take an extra couple of seconds for it to spin-up. No big deal, just FYI.

depressing

wesley s., Newegg
26 November 2012
  • Summary: it's depressing that they now cost 2x what I originally paid and made my seagate to boot according to other posters. I guess if I'm going to rebuild my raid I should just get something else.
  • Pros: quite, original samsung drives
  • Cons: errors on 1 after a year of service is raid 0.

good while it lasted

Deward H., Newegg
1 November 2012
  • Summary: already bought and installed another (RAID array, no data lost), waranty replacement (only costs shipping) is in the works. As is always the case one failure means (almost) nothing, and by the time I can tell you how long the replacement(s) lasted the things will probably no longer be made anyway.
  • Pros: low power, runs cool and quiet
  • Cons: until it fails (six weeks), that is . . .

RMA return backlog- Mostly good drives

Kevin B., Newegg
19 October 2012
  • Summary: Must use an older version of Seagate's SeaTools to test, not the Samsung software or a later version. I found SeaTools 3.02 (found on HiRen BootCD 10.1) to work for testing purposes.
  • Pros: Nice quiet drive, not hot like many Seagates. Big. Fairly fast access. Seems to work well in a Netgear/Infrant ReadyNAS NV+ and a Tivo S3. 10 of 11 work fine.
  • Cons: 1 of 11 DOA. Be advised that the manufacturer has a backlog of returns now, and NO date given on when they will ship an advance return (low inventory of RMA drives). Also, warranty date given by manufacturer is based on ship date to Retailer, not purchased date by end user. No ability to enter or...
