    5 out of 5 eggsThis thing lasted years

    Pros: I've had this hard drive for about 6 years. Through all those years I was really hard on it. I'm truly baffled that it went so strong for me through all those years.

    It finally kicked the bucket on this memorable day...

    Job well done, Samsung.

    Cons: I now feel like I need to give a hard drive an honorable funeral, rather than a fun smash with a mallet.

    Other Thoughts: I used to think Samsung was primarily garbage

    5 out of 5 eggsBest Value in Hard Drives

    Pros: Decent size, quiet, doesn't run really hot compared to some of my previous drives from other manufacturers. For the capacity this is an excellent value. Even drives half this size cost almost as much...

    Cons: I supposed I could always hope for RAID class drives at this price... but I can't really find anything to complain about.

    Other Thoughts: I now have 7 of these, and 2 Samsung Spinpoint Fs that are 1TB in size. The oldest drives are about 6 months old now. Connected to a mother-board that is properly set up for AHCI mode, they are fast. I had previously been using another brand, but then I read a comparison of different 1TB drives which convinced me to try Samsungs because they had a better feature set. Since then I've hardly looked at the other brands... I just go for the Samsung drives.

    5 out of 5 eggsIt's a hard drive, what can I truthfully say?

    Pros: Writes/ Reads fast, fast boot times. Cache could be larger, but for the price, it fits. Considering it is a Samsung, it is better then I expected.

    Cons: None.

    Other Thoughts: For a regular SATA hard drive, it writes/reads fast, and is better then many people expect. A definite buy if you cannot afford Western Digital drives. Samsung yet again has passed my expectations.

    5 out of 5 eggsGreat mid range hard drive

    Pros: These hard drives are fast, quiet and affordable! I have purchased over 100 Samsung Hard Drives and I am very pleased with each and every single one of them - I have NEVER - to this day - had a DOA HDD from Samsung!

    Cons: None

    Other Thoughts: If your looking for a HDD for your system, add on, run in Riad, or for primary use, these hard drives will do fin. I have 2 in Raid 0 with the following scores using HD Tune:

    Read Minimum: 88.7 MB/s
    Read Maximum: 161.0 MB/s
    Read Average: 142.4 MB/s
    Read Burst Rate: 145.3 MB/s

    If you know your HDDs, you will see for a little over 100 you could put 2 in Raid 0 and be about 30% faster than a $220 VelociRaptor 300GB HDD.

    As I said, I have purchased over 100 Samsung Hard Drives and NEVER had a single one DOA. Only one time I had a HDD that was not formatted, but I was able to format it no problem using the standard windows installation on any Windows OS. Once formated, I installed it as a secondary back up system in my main gaming rig. Samsung is the best! I also love their DVD Burners, etc!

    5 out of 5 eggssuper Quiet

    Pros: Very quiet, very smooth spin up. Am going to order another for a RAID 1 set up. Have been using Samsung for a while, I have an 80 gig going on 5yrs., and 3 250 gig heading to their third year.

    Cons: I have no cons with the drive, however, the shipping dept. needs to make changes.Put packing material on the bottom , sides, and top of the products, so far they have been missing the bottom. My drive was sitting on the bottom, no padding. And by reading other reviews on different products, this problem needs to be addressed.

    Other Thoughts: I build my own systems, and tried a S______, worked 3mo and just died, no warning at all. Got their refurb replacement, probably sell it, sure don't trust it. I'll stick to Samsung, for the long run. Thanks Newegg for the free shipping, hope you can afford to keep it up.

    5 out of 5 eggsSamsung drives are the best!

    Pros: I have purchased over 100 samsung Hard Drives for my custom build gaming machines - single drive and raid setups and I have never once had a bad hard drive.

    Cons: Only problem I ever had was on drive was not formatted out of the box, simple fix - I formatted it manually. The drive itself was perfect.

    Other Thoughts: If you dont know what you are doing when building your computer ask for help, and NEVER, EVER think that you can "hot swap" or plug and play these drives unless you know what you are doing - always turn off the power at the power supply, press the power button to depleat any residual electrical charge, waite a few more secconds and then plug in/unplug your hardware.

    Also - make sure your drives stay relativly cool, if your computer case is running VERY hot, you may have issues.. common scence - I know

    5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Workhorse

    Pros: -Reliable
    -Fast (I've been using one for a boot drive)
    -Not a single error since I popped it in

    Cons: -Could be a wee bit faster

    Other Thoughts: I originally got this drive as a storage, and a WD Raptor 150GB for a boot drive. After some issues with the WD (resolved since), I started using this as my main drive. I haven't had a single problem with this drive, and recently I got another one to be my storage drive.
    This is a great workhorse of a drive. It obviously could be faster, but since faster drives exist, I can't really fault it on that. If for some insane reason I need more space before the 1TB drives start coming down in price, this will be my go-to drive. Get it, use it, love it.
