2 out of 5 eggsFailing after 15 months

Pros: While it lasted, the drive ran fast and quiet. Was a great price for it (hmm, maybe you get what you pay for??) but for it being in a laptop that stays in the house and is used about 3 times a week, it is disappointing that it is failing.

Cons: Unreliable - sure, it has a 3 year warranty, but try to get it replaced! I would expect a laptop drive that isn't used daily and doesn't travel to last a little longer than 15 months. Samsung sold their HDD unit to Seagate, lock, stock and barrel in April of 2011. When you go to samsunghdd.com, you get the Seagate site. Nowhere on-line to initiate an RMA. You can confirm that it is in/out of warranty, that's it. The screen is a dead-end. You can download SeaTOOLS, which works with the Samsung drive, and it confirms it is going bad, but you can't submit anything online for an RMA! Obviously, no more Samsung drives for me, and I am going to be very careful when buying Seagates from now on.

Other Thoughts: Samsung used to have a good reputation and good quality. I guess while they were shopping around for someone to buy the HDD division, they got lazy and didn't care about quality any more...

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it's supposed to.

Pros: Full speed drive, has about the same speed as a standard desktop drive. No idea about power consumption because I have it in a media player.

Cons: Price, but the shortage explains it, so I was expecting it at the time.

Other Thoughts: Put it in a Patriot Box Office Core and it works perfectly.

4 out of 5 eggsworks as expected

Pros: well, it works fine :-)

Cons: none, as long as it works fine

Other Thoughts: Great replacement drive for mainstream laptop computers. It's performance is somewhat higher than most factory installed ones have. My friend is happy with this drive in his laptop, even though I recommended something a little faster.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy from Samsung

Pros: None

Cons: The hard drive failed after 3 months. Samsung is selling their hard drive line to Seagate and told me that I can't get an RMA number to initiate the return for two weeks. In summary, Samsung sells bad products and has the worst customer support I've ever experienced.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Replaced dead drive in an Asus G53. I've formatted it to NTFS and it works as advertised.
Quicker than 5400 RPM hard disks that a lot of laptops have as standard.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This is a bare drive so don't expect any cables or screws. Know what you are buying.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat drive

Pros: Fast drive for under 50 dollars. I was a little hesitant to buy from samsung. I thought I would give them a chance. I was not dissapointed. It seems to perform just as well as the other brands I have used.

Cons: It was not a retail box drive. However, it did come double boxed in a nice suspension device. Very close to how the retail boxes are holding the drive. 3 year warranty.

Other Thoughts: Windows booted up faster, drive seemed quicker to load videos/music. Drive is quiet compared to the original 5400 rpm drive.
