5 out of 5 eggs2 years strong

Pros: Working great, 2 years later in a 8 disk RAID 5

Cons: No real cons, the prices have dropped dramatically and this product is no longer stocked but I was thinking about buying 8 more and doing a software level mirror of my original purchase and they will likely never restock them :(

Other Thoughts: Purchased 9 of these to build a RAID using (2) ICYDOCK ToughArmor MB994SP-4S (8-RAID 5, 1 cold spare), Dell PERC 5i, (2) StarTech SAS884S450 cables, drives are still running great. Repurposing them into my iSCSI-SAN target server so I can run my VM's from them over MPIO on a quad gigabit link aggregate port channel. Obviously not as fast as running it directly on the PCIe bus but gives me a lot more flexibility for expansion using iSCSI.

2 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: I purchased this to replace a failing hard drive in a laptop. It initially worked well, if a little slow (I was purchasing for price, not speed).

Cons: The drive occasionally does not respond on bootup initially, I took this to mean that it was under operating temperature. However, it has now happened several times not after having come in from the cold.

I think it has even happened after boot once; either that, or it flipped a few bits. There were errors accessing a system file; I restored the file from a backup, and rebooted, so I am unsure which it was.

I guess I'll throw in that I suppose it is possible that the issue is with the motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsdoes the job

Pros: Ordered it to replace a failing drive on a client's laptop. Since i couldn't do a block copy of the disk, had to perform a fresh Windows-7 install. Read/Write rates seem to be acceptable especially when the computer is being used for web/social media and MS office.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I feel that we have been spoiled by SSD drives; so much that using a traditional spindled disk seems ancient due to the lack of throughput speeds compared to SSD's. This drive seems to be operating fairly well though.

2 out of 5 eggsquestionable shipping on HD

Pros: excellent price, always good service from New Egg, always find what I need. Would rate a 5 for my past experiences.

Cons: Shipped loose and bouncing around in box, no wrap or drive protection. Sloppy job, worse I have ever seen. No way can a loose drive take the beating these were probably subject to. Shipping was slow, but I understand the season contributed to that, and expected it. Had to rate this low for the terrible packing, hopefully just an aberration.

Other Thoughts: Never had problems with NewEgg before, but just received 2 drives loose in box, bouncing around, with a few large bubbles that didn't even fill the empty space. Can only imagine what they went through in shipping, have not tested them yet, but at this point fully expect to need to return both. In the past any drives were ALWAYS fully wrapped in bubblewrap and secure. Sloppy shipping this time, holiday is no excuse.

1 out of 5 eggsNot made by Samsung

Pros: Inexpensive and arrived safely thanks to excellent packaging from NewEgg.

Cons: I strongly prefer Samsung Spinpoint over Seagate Momentus for personal reasons. The photos in this listing clearly shows a Samsung Spinpoint, Made in Korea. Must be an old photo. The 3 drives I have received since Seagate bought the Samsung division, are Made in China with Seagate Momentus written next to the Samsung Spinpoint name.

Other Thoughts: It appears that Seagate is relabeling their Momentus drives with the Samsung name. Based on past purchases of notebook drives, Samsung notebook drives were made in Korea, and Seagate drives are made in China. Did Seagate shut down the Samsung manufacturing plants? I don't really care who owns the Korean plant, as long as I'm purchasing Samsung designed, Korean manufactured drives as I am led to believe with this listing. The Key phrase in this listing is "Made in Korea" as printed on the label that's shown.
