Wonderful HD

Kenneth Deming, Amazon

  • 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.

Designed by Samsung, sold by Seagate

  • Summary: Since the two most recent reviews for the HD204UI are, to put the most charitable face I can on them, both confused and confusing, I think it's time to set the record straight. 1. Seagate bought Samsung's hard-drive business late last year, so indeed these are now 'Seagate' drives. 2.
