1 out of 5 eggsDo NOT buy

This review is from: SAMSUNG Spinpoint M8 ST500LM012(HN-M500MBB) 500GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: No Pros DO NOT BUY if you care about your data.

Cons: I am a local computer store and have purchased at least 10 of these drives, including one for my own computer. So far 9 have failed within a year. Completely failed, all my customers data lost. The one that has not failed now has two major SMART errors and I will have to RMA it too. The punch in the stomach is although under warranty it costs about $10 to get them replaced with shipping. Not a good deal once you factor in data loss and expense to get a refurbished( ya they send a refurbished drive not another new one) drive.

Other Thoughts: Not a good deal once you factor in data loss and expense to end up with a refurbished( ya they send a refurbished drive when your fails not another new one) drive. Stick with Western Digital. For reference I fix about 2000 computers a year, personally. I own a computer store. If you trust any review trust this one.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless. Just like all Samsung Hard drives

This review is from: SAMSUNG Spinpoint M8 ST500LM012(HN-M500MBB) 500GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Worked for less than a week, no problems for that time period.

Cons: Stopped working after a week of using it as an external drive. Tried everything to fix it, and it was dead after that week. I assumed that since it worked, I was not going to be returning it, and threw away all my packaging and now I can't even return the drive. I now have a worthless $50 paper weight.

Other Thoughts: This is my second SAMSUNG spinpoint purchase, first was a 1tb that lasted less than a year before dying a week after this one. It is apparent to me that these are not reliable drives, and I have not wasted entirely too much money with Samsung, and will never be purchasing their products again.

1 out of 5 eggsFails after 2 months

This review is from: SAMSUNG Spinpoint M8 ST500LM012(HN-M500MBB) 500GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Price

Cons: Installed on customer's laptop and failed after 2 months of use. I do not know if it was dropped or how they handle their laptop but reading the other reviews it sounds like these drives have a high failure rate.
