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.

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.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Waste Your Time

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: None.

Cons: Hard drive purchased December 13th 2011...Failed Februaray 12th 2012. Extremely upset. Should have paid the extra money and bought a "price gouged" hard drive from that other manufacturer which beach front property. Now I need to suffer the pains of a RMA, but somehow I feel I'm just going to get another #@$%^ drive as a replacement.

Other Thoughts: The few bucks you think you're saving buying this drive..you'll lose paying shipping to return this when it fails.

RUN!!!!
