    5 out of 5 eggsReliable

    Pros: Bought in 2009, still works in 2015 - used daily with 2% available capacity as main disk on a desktop computer.

    Cons: Directories showing 1000+ files can be slow to load in Windows8.x and Windows 10. Not sure if fault of Windows or disk...

    Have experienced some file date corruption once in the first year...

    Other Thoughts: Have been lucky with all disks from most brands, except WD Velociraptor where 3-4 disks failed every 6 months - in the end I gave up returning disks on the warranty.

    5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong

    Pros: Purchased this HDD in 2008 for $100.

    I'm a heavy gamer and at one point most likely used this HDD as a primary disc. The past few years it has been used as my main storage device, with 70-90% capacity filled up. It' still running strong today. Has been moved between several PC builds, and have had zero issues with it so far.

    This alone has me questioning my choice of a different brand while looking for more space.

    Cons: None.

    4 out of 5 eggsFor your consideration

    Pros: I have read a lot of reviews about this drive over the last few years that say it fails early. Most of these reviews are based on regarding the drive as failed once it fails diagnostics tests, not actual experiencing a failure. I have one of these drives and it has been performing flawlessly for years. When I run diagnostics on this drive, sometimes the software won't even recognize the drive. On some it fails SMART, others it's a pass. On some it sees bad sectors, while Windows detects none. And the results vary based on what operating system I am testing with and what diagnostic tool I am using, none of the results agree. But one thing agrees. The performance. Read/write, excellent. Response time, excellent. Writing to it, erasing and writing again, over and over. Everything is actually operating the same as ever. No corruption in transfers, no actual data problems. I can store as much as the capacity was originally. I have tested this drive in W7, XP and W8.1, file transfers galore. Wiped it completely out, reformatted differently, wrote to zeroes and started over, basically twisted it every way I could think of. Bottom line, it has not actually failed in any way. It's as fast as it was day one, behaves exactly the same but now for some reason it won't pass an hdd drive diagnostics softare, or maybe it will, if I put the drive in another box. So what is my conclusion? I have none. I am going to keep hammering on this HDD until it actually fails. So far it's been a long test. I think that it has something to do with this drives reporting of SMART. There isn't actually anything wrong with the drive at all, it's reporting in error. If I ever blow this drive up, I'll let you know.

    Cons: doesn't pass dianostics

    Other Thoughts: spunky drive

    4 out of 5 eggsDied after 4 years

    Pros: very good reliable drive for past 4 years and 3 months. It was in a system that's on pretty much 24x7.

    Cons: none

    Other Thoughts: Suddenly started making clicking noise and disappeared from windows. I have a western digital that's working great for last 7 years 24x7 so i guess samsung need to improve its quality. I am trying to recover data now.

    5 out of 5 eggsStill got 5-6 of those running OK

    Pros: - over 80% of this model's quantity I have purchased holds up very well - high performance, quiet, warm but not hot
    - cheap, good value
    - survived as external hard drive, traveling and connected/disconnected daily for a few months
    - runs in hardware RAID with no fuss

    Cons: - short warranty
    - it's a shame the remaining 20% of total quantity I purchased died after (sometimes shortly after) end of warranty.
    - discontinued - why? you can probably buy HGST with same specs for $75, which is still a very bad deal, considering you can get a 3TB Toshiba for $119 when on sale.

    Other Thoughts: aside from WD Black 1TB, this was probably the best SATA II hard drive 3-4 years ago, in terms of value and performance

    5 out of 5 eggsHD103UJ

    Pros: I bought this hard drive 5/8/2009. This Samsung I have had for 4 years. In December of 2010 it survived a fire with smoke damage, but it is starting to die. The best hard drive I have ever had. So I'm going to use it as secondary drive.

    Cons: Sad that its about old.

    2 out of 5 eggs

    Pros: purchased on 4/21/2009. drive died on 12/1/12. worked for 3+ years

    Cons: lost about a week of data since my last backup. not the end of the world, but an inconvenience. Have been very careful with the drive and was in a machine that was not used heavily. Disappointed to see a drive die after only a few years of light use. sending to Samsung for RMA. we'll see how that process goes...
