1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY, DIE FAST, LOST DATA

This review is from: SAMSUNG P3 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive STSHX-MTD10EF

Pros: USB 3.0, pretty fast when it work.

Cons: As my Newegg order history show, I bought this SAMSUNG P3 1TB external drive on 08/01/2014. It stop working around 08/01/2015.
If you have 1TB of useless data and you do not care if you will lose it or not, go ahead and store it on this drive.
This drive was not put to heavy use. It is mostly used as a temporally storage or for transfer large data.
Warranty is a joke for hard drive, so the 3 years warranty is useless. While try to get the warranty for my hard drive, I find out that I have to RMA to the drive the Seagate?! And here is their statement:
"DATA ON RETURN DRIVES WILL BE LOST. Your original drive will NOT be returned. All data and software will be lost. If your warranty claim is justified, we may send you a recertified replacement unit. If not, we may retain your unit altogether. Either way, you will lose any data on the unit. The replacement drive will be low-level formatted. If you need the data on the drive and do not have a backup copy, you may want to consider data recovery services before sending the drive to Seagate for replacement."
So, I open up the external cover hoping that I can connect the drive to SATA to get back my data. Well, turn out the drive have a special PCB made for USB 3.0 only!! Not a normal SATA 2.5" drive!

Other Thoughts: The point of buying an external hard drive is to back up your data or to expand you storage space. I know saving your only copy of data on an external drive is a dump idea, but I do not have a choice. I was traveling with my MacBook Air with only 128SSD and a Camera with 8GB memory card. So, I have to use this drive to temperately store my travel picture. I thought it should be ok since I only need this drive to work until I can storage very thing back to my desktop.
I think the drive stop working because of USB 3.0 to SATA adapter failure. I was not able to connect this drive to SATA because of special PCB for USB 3.0

Pros: Good storage for the price, compact size, and surprisingly fast transfer speeds. So far reliable...

3 out of 5 eggsHmmmmmmm

This review is from: SAMSUNG P3 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive STSHX-MTD10EF

Pros: To the reviewer who says Samsung is bad and he will stick with Seagate...............look on the back of the drive and it clearly says it is manufactured by Seagate.

Cons: Have not purchased this yet but will in the very near future.

Other Thoughts: None so far

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 3 months

This review is from: SAMSUNG P3 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive STSHX-MTD10EF

Pros: Compact, sleek, fast when it worked

Cons: Not reliable enough to chance your important files. Don't waste your money. It worked well for only 3 months then died.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this to backup important files on mine and the kids laptops. I used it about once a week for the 3 months I've owned it. I went to use it today and it just beeps and dies. I have put a lot of files on this and am not happy at all that I spent all that money on a drive that only lasted such a short time. The TV is a good one but stay away from their computer products.

5 out of 5 eggsGot it on sale--just what I needed!

This review is from: SAMSUNG P3 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive STSHX-MTD10EF

Pros: My only external hard drive had been an 160 GB, 2-USB port required model whose mini-USB hook-up was failing due to age and misuse, on my part. With a really old laptop in need of being backed up, I opted for something new, and this model had everything I needed and more. It has built-in "back-up" software that will routinely back up your hard drive, but it's not necessary to use it, as drag-and-drop works just as well.

Cons: None so far. I've even dropped it on the ground a few times by accident and nothing has gotten corrupted or broken. Not to say that you should ever be rough with your hard drives, but it was a pleasant surprise.

Other Thoughts: Very slim, very easy to use with multiple modes. Good external hard drive for the price.

2 out of 5 eggsSaw the good reviews - Didn't get lucky

This review is from: SAMSUNG P3 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive STSHX-MTD10EF

Pros: Sleek and Nice, the installed software was able to recognize the drive was bad and suggested an RMA... so, that's nice, I guess.

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: I'll give it another shot, kinda disappointed I have to pay for shipping again - I'll never get a Samsung again, I'll stick to Seagate. Here's for trying.
