    1 out of 5 eggsNot as good as WD.

    Pros: Its worked when I installed it. Went into a Toshiba laptop.

    Cons: This thing gave me read errors at almost 2 months of use. Not very heavy use i might add. Samsung make great tv's but well use Western Digital hard drives no made the price. Can't RMA only 2 months old.

    Other Thoughts: Even if the price is cheaper don't get this drive they dont last very long. Go with Western Digital better drive and warranty services. Samsung does not handel the warrany, make your supplier supply the warrany. Newegg gives 30 days warranty.

    4 out of 5 eggsGood little drive for the price

    Pros: Good drive. mounted nicely in the mounting bracket in my girlfriends laptop. Standard mounting holes on the sides and bottom.

    Cons: Nothing real big. Drive does consume a bit more power than the old Hitachi drive. Takes away about an extra 10 minutes of battery life. Takes a little longer to spin up than other drives I have used.

    Other Thoughts: Decent drive for the money. Wanted a decent capacity drive to replace the stock 80 gig drive in my girlfriends laptop. This fit the bill nicely.

    5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

    Pros: Fast drive. Very quiet. Enexpensive.

    Cons: None

    Other Thoughts: This is my third. The first went into my Dell Notebook. The second when into a external enclosure (transcend). And the third also went into a Transcend external enclosure. These drives are rock solid. No crash so far.

    2 out of 5 eggsFailed after 9 months, appears no warranty on OEM

    Pros: Worked great, quite in MacBook Pro

    Cons: some error on drive that makes it not mount in OS X and drive was not bootable after 9 months. run disk repair, drive has invalid journal content and its non repairable, did zero write to drive per apple. no change in drives status, you can write to it, but you have to run disk repair to fix invalid journal for it to mount in future... every time.

    Other Thoughts: some error on drive that makes it mount in OS X and drive was not bootable after 9 months. run disk repair, drive has invalid journal content and its non repairable, did zero write to drive per apple. drive has difficulty mounting unless you mount it immediately after disrepair. and it appears per Samsung its not under warranty unless NewEgg declares an RMA number, which is not available on OEM drives. Think I would not by OEM going forward with SamSung.

    3 out of 5 eggsBetter the second time

    Pros: Great capacity at a great price. I thought it was a good price 7 months ago and it has only dropped a lot since.

    Cons: First one failed. I started getting error messages, ran Samsung's diagnostic tool which confirmed many bad sectors. Returned it for a replacement.

    Other Thoughts: Despite having everything backed up, it is still quite a headache to return a hard drive since you can't use your laptop unless you have a spare. I used the 80gb drive that I was replacing and was able to stay operational while waiting for a replacement. Had to return to Samsung directly and not Newegg which was actually pretty efficient. I've had the second drive in place for about 4-5 months and it has generally worked well, but have had 2-3 shutdowns which referenced a hard drive initialization error. I was able to just restart the laptop with no ill effects, but I am nervous about this drive and am faithfully backing up data.
