    1 out of 5 eggsSamsung dud

    Pros: It worked for awhile.

    Cons: Drive began to have bad sectors after a year of use. I wish I had bought a different hard 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.

    Pros: Silent, no over heating, good speed

    Used iot 4 years, 1-2Hrs/day.

    SATA 2 interface.

    Cons: had 2 of these disks for 4 years. one dyed in first 4 months, and was replaced in Waranty. Second one died after 4Years and 1month, out of warranty.

    Type of death: sudded death, no sign of problem until is no longer seen by the PC.

    Other Thoughts: After first HDD died , i bought an identical one and created a mirror partition in Windows to keep all important stuff.

    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...

    5 out of 5 eggsReliable for several years

    Pros: Have had this drive for almost 4 years now and it still works great. It's been reliable and performs great. Temperatures are lower than my seagate and hitachi drives.

    Cons: None

    Other Thoughts: Originally bought this for a desktop build back in 2008. I've kept it in a media/storage server for a couple of years now. Works great!

    Cons: None.

    1 out of 5 eggsSamsung hard drives are junk. DON'T BUY!

    Pros: Pros? What Pros?

    Cons: Drive works for a little bit, then it will go dead and/or otherwise become inaccessible, unrecognized in BIOS and unrecoverable. Samsung hard drives are a waste of money and everyone considering them should strike samsun hardrives off the list as they are nothing more than the worlds most expensive paperweights.

    Other Thoughts: Avoid Samsung hard drives. You'll be glad you did.
