5 out of 5 eggsAn excelent choice!

Pros: I'm using a pair on a stripping RAID. The write and read speeds are the fastest I've ever tested. These are quiet and the temperature is average.

Cons: None so far.

2 out of 5 eggsBOOO!!!!

Pros: Storage space per dollar ratio is phenomenal. Transfer speed is decent.

Cons: Bought 2, and the first one failed mechanically in the first 24 hours. It started with certain applications not wanting to install, then the 3rd or 4th time I booted up after that, it made grinding and clicking noises.

It's also a bit louder than my 160JJ's.

Other Thoughts: If you're not doing a mirror RAID array, don't buy one of these, cause it's a good chance you'll have one fail on you.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat are you guys doing to this drive?

Pros: This thing smokes the seagate perpendicular drive. Trust me I have both. This drive should be horizontally mounted. It writes at free constant speed and reads very quickly. These are great drives.

Cons: The 400 is the fastest of the bunch. check the bench marks.

5 out of 5 eggscheap. reliable thus far. large

Pros: very cheap for a 400 gig drive. 16mb cache a plus. so far its worked fine.

Cons: seems to run a but hotter than my WD250gig. My motherboard didnt support sata 3.0, so i had to pull a jumper off of a cd-drive and use it on the hdd in order for my mobo to recognize it as sata 1.5, more of a problem with my mobo though.

Other Thoughts: my first samsung drive after being a multiple drive WD owner, bought this one purely for the price/storage ratio being so low, time will tell if its a good one.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Drive

Pros: Quick delivery, smooth RMA process

Cons: the entire drive itself is a con

Other Thoughts: was slow from the get go. Once installing Vista and transfering about 20GB to it, the drive began to make clicking and light grinding noises at progressively smaller intervals. RMAed before it crashed altogether

2 out of 5 eggsbad sectors not reformatable

Pros: Huge Drive Cheap

Cons: The Drive has failed after 1.5 months. Man I thought I was getting a killer Deal! Loaded Vista on it. Started acting funny, and I ran a scan and found bad sectors... Goiong back to Western Digital!

Other Thoughts: Read other user comments before you buy anything!
