    4 out of 5 eggsSolid drive. A bit loud

    Pros: Solid performer! A pair of these lasted 4 years with continuous use. I'm sure they would still be spinning now but they have been replaced in accordance with our drive replacement time frame.

    Cons: A bit on the loud side when seeking. 29db. Many drives are 26 db or less (3 db difference is 2x louder!)

    5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

    Pros: Quiet, relatively fast, terrific price, packaged very securely for shipment by Newegg. Use this for muli-boot custom PC running Windows XP Pro w/SP3, Windows Vista Ultimate w/SP1, Windows 7 Beta, and two versions of Linux. Using previous 500GB WD drive for documents and other data. Also have home built server running Windows Home Server and will get another two of these drives strictly for my server backups.

    Cons: Slow delivery by FedEx. Took 8 days from time of order!

    Other Thoughts: Would prefer UPS for shipping, but not given a choice.

    5 out of 5 eggsGood

    Pros: I got a 5.9 in the Vista rating, unlike the 5.7 in few comments that was posted before mine.

    There are 3 plates and 2 plates versions of this. You're probably going to get 3 plate (slower) version, because the 2 paltes were unstable.

    But mine's pretty fast, so I'm not complaining

    Cons: Nnone

    5 out of 5 eggsGood HD

    Pros: Simple and to the point. Very cheap! This drive (right now) costs as much as the 500GB. SATA is a plus.

    Cons: Only con is it rated a 5.7 in the Vista rating index .. but no issues so far.

    Other Thoughts: Well worth the money.

    4 out of 5 eggsSemi-Successful External

    Pros: Incredibly cheap (currently) for the amount of data you're getting (but I felt the same way about the 2.5GB hard drive in my first modern PC, so I wonder how long until this review feels dated!).

    Incredibly simple packaging, with no complex drivers or fussiness. Decent speeds, no DOA drive, recognized under Win7 and WinXP.

    Cons: I used this drive to replace a dead 500GB Western Digital drive in a Cavalry external I bought a year and a half ago. It had arrived DOA, then the replacement started to fail, so I figured it was time to backup, filling up my primary HD.

    The Samsung came as my savior and plugged into the old enclosure perfectly well (hurrah for standardized SATA/power connectors and the like). It booted fine and was able to format and be recognized. . .

    However, on approximately 50% of my boots into both WinXP and Win7 Beta, the drive's status light turns from blue to red upon bootup and the OS doesn't see the HD. I must manually turn the external off and back on before it is scanned and added to the drive list properly.

    This is unusual behavior; the old WD HD didn't show this behavior in the enclosure, so I can only assume it's somehow related to the Samsung, but I can't figure out how.

    Other Thoughts: Extremely fast shipping and great service: 1 day standard shipping to Boston, MA!

    3 out of 5 eggsStarting to get the CLICK OF DEATH

    Pros: cheap. lots of space.

    Cons: i bought it almost a month ago, under heavy usage, the hard drive tends to make a sound of an electronic swoosh and then followed by a click. i googled this, and found out its your hard drives way of telling you its going to die soon, aptly dubbed: "THE CLICK OF DEATH" so now i had to buy an external 1TB and back up everything on there just patiently waiting for that time to come.

    Other Thoughts: its certainly not normal to hear this click. that means something is wrong, until the day comes that this harddrive will die on me, i will give it 3 stars instead of 1 because it hasnt totally failed me, YET.
