2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small, fast 7200 rpm drive. Price was good at Newegg. Easily replaced original HD in Mac Mini.

Cons: Died on me in about two years. Drive was quite hot when it was working.

Other Thoughts: Symptoms: Suddenly non responsive system (Mac OS 7). Constant spinning wheel... Upon several restarts using comand-v, zapping pram, etc., could not get OS to startup. Kept on getting a DOS type screen... When mounting as external drive (firewire cable and holding T key), drive was not recognized. Then I knew it was dead!

1 out of 5 eggsFrustrating

Pros: Decent performer, fast drive in laptop form factor.

Cons: This came in an HP Envy Beat Edition, and failed just outside the warranty period. BSOD, HP Quick 303 and Full 305 errors upon test. Bad sectors accumulated. Frustrating that it had to fail over time rather than DOA.

I'm avoiding Seagate drives now for fear ex-Samsung people are working on their HDDs. Unfortunate that we have so few choices in HDD vendors now.

1 out of 5 eggsSamsung Junk

Pros: No pros, do not buy Samsung. Thishas been the most disappointing hardrive I have owned in decades.

Shame on Samsung. Shame on HP for putting this junk in their Envy notebooks.

Cons: Cheap, It will die after 1 year and you cannot get warranty support.

Other Thoughts: Buy anything else but a Samsung. And if Seagate is peddling these now, avoid them to.

1 out of 5 eggsHard drive failed!

Pros: Fast and quit while it lasted

Cons: In less than a year, I started having really slow response in my macbook pro. I tried copying out the user files to another hard drive using the Finder, but it failed due to read errors. Luckily, I was able to get most of the files out using the terminal and linux commands. Then I reformatted the drive using OS x drive utility and reinstalled a fresh OS X and then copied user files back over. Things seemed fine afterwards, then I started adding photos and started having iphoto crash.
I took the hard drive out and connected it to a windows pc to run seagate's hard drive tool (Seagate now handles Samsung drive support). It came back with read errors and could not fix them.

I just shipped them the drive back last week with an RMA. We'll see if Seagate sends me a replacement that works better.
