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.

inexpenxive 2.0gb upgrade

Hesh!, Amazon
27 February 2012
  • Summary: When I decided to set up a FreeNAS raid server I had only one of these HDD's at the time (60 days ago). After searching many retail chains for an exact match, the cheapest matching secondary drive ran $230. Although I read several horror stories about dead/damaged HDD's upon arrival or after minimal use from various vendors I spent two days researching and reading reviews.

Nice storage space, but....

  • Summary: Love the drives! The first order came packaged as expected (separate boxes, clam shell shock absorbers). The drives were easy to install and format. Start a format and find something else to do, it's going to be a looooong time. **Beware of making one of these drives as your booter** First off- the killer for performance is the 5400rpm. Transfer of huge amounts of data on the same drive becomes slow.

Not stellar but good performance for the price

  • Summary: Based on reviews, I thought these would be good drives to use to upgrade my RAID based system. In all fairness, these are not RE drives, but 2TB RE drives cost more than I wanted to spend. My older drives were Samsung RE drives, but only 1TB each. RAID edition drives are nice to have. They coordinate with each other. They are fault tolerant in ways that individual drives are not.

probably the best 2TB drive right now

Ivan "ivan_", Amazon

  • Summary: I get 130MB/s - 100MB/s writes over SATA, and the drive stays cold. I think you can safely use this drive without a fan, which is great. My only complaint: the drive I received makes an audible high-pitched sound (probably ~15000hz), so if you have sensitive ears like me, you might not want this as one of your primary drives.

Big Drives! Big Value! Quiet and Cool!

A Conrad "Ask Conrad", Amazon

  • Summary: This review is for the Samsung F4EG 2TB HD204UI drives, 5400RPM, 32MB of cache. UPDATE: If you need or want to update your firmware, but cannot find the FAQ through the Samsung or Seagate sites, I have the info on my blog (just visit my profile and click on the link to my webpage). Unfortunately, Amazon removed the links that will take you to the download sites.

Descent performance for a 5400rpm drive

  • Summary: I use two of these drives for data storage on my home PC. Not fast enough for a primary data drive but good as secondary drives.

Works well and doesn't get too hot

David, Edinburgh, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: This is a good compromise for storage versus price, without taking too much power or losing too much performance. I did find that with a Dell Dimension 9200 it seemed unreliable, and I had to put back the 1 GB Samsung HD103SJ I had hoped to replace, but these disks work correctly in a more modern PC. Recommended.

Andreas, Amazon

  • Summary: The quality of the hdd is one of the best. It is very reliable.I bought two for my files. It is very good for use in a nas. It produces little or no audible noise and runs very cool. Overall very good hdd but they came in a very poor packaging.
