4 out of 5 eggsPerfect Size, Good Speed

This review is from: SAMSUNG 500GB P3 Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STSHX-MT050DF

Pros: Small size and weight. Eazy to transport. Very good transfer speeds. Have used for only a short time but so far it seems to be a great purchase.

Cons: None that I can think of yet

Other Thoughts: Perfect ultra portable drive. Great for people on the go needing more than flash drives can handle.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well!!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 500GB P3 Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STSHX-MT050DF

Pros: Small, sleek, black, has little blue light on top, convienient to plug into one USB port, USB 3.0 speed, fast.

Cons: I can't think of any yet at this point.

Other Thoughts: I'm using this hard drive with my MacBook pro for a Time Machine backup drive. It was very easy to erase and reformat it to work with Time Machine. This drive seems to be quite fast.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

This review is from: SAMSUNG 500GB P3 Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STSHX-MT050DF

Pros: My previous review needs to be partially corrected. I maintain that the drive is fast and I love that aspect of it. Now jump down to the cons.

Cons: The usb enclosure is a piece of junk. After about 4 months I've had issues with the drive staying connected. I have to keep something under the adapter cable where it plugs into the drive to keep the tail end of it elevated or the drive stop being detected, you lose whatever it was you were doing, and you have to unplug the drive for a few seconds & plug it back in to be detected again. It's absolutely shameful that you get a year warranty on the internal hard drive but only 90 days on the enclosure cable, which I found out the hard way after trying to submit a RMA. DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE if you are needing a RELIABLE source of storage. I'm currently trying to find a replacement usb 3.0 enclosure to move the internal hard drive to so I can reliably access the data without having to rig it up just to keep using it. Lesson learned - don't buy external drives unless it's from the hard drive manufacturer - Samsung isn't going to take care of their portion of the device it is quite clear. What good is western digital fixing the internal hard drive if the bloody usb controller that is built into the enclosure fails so that you can't access the drive???

1 out of 5 eggsPortable Hard Drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 500GB P3 Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STSHX-MT050DF

Pros: fast, USB 3.0, 3 year warranty

Cons: Suddenly died after 30 days or so...bought for my son...and he reported his PC wouldn't read the drive, tried on several PC wouldn't read. Will have to contact vendor.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully, vendor will honor 3 year warranty as it's not been 6 months that this item has been in use.

5 out of 5 eggsGood drive

This review is from: SAMSUNG 500GB P3 Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STSHX-MT050DF

Pros: Fast, solid construction, attractive design, no external power adapter required, NTFS, The discounted sale price was so great at the time that I couldn't afford to not buy it.

Cons: Price changes

Other Thoughts: Mine seems to disconnect after transferring about 100 gig if it is plugged into my front USB 3.0 port, Most likely because of interference from my motherboard header cable. It does not disconnect while plugged into my rear USB 3.0 ports coming directly off the motherboard. It also worked fine connected to my USB 2.0 port through a 6 foot extension cable.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung P3

This review is from: SAMSUNG 500GB P3 Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STSHX-MT050DF

Pros: Great little drive! It's pretty quiet for an external 5400 rpm drive! I'm getting close to 52MB speeds on my USB 2.0 port. I wish I had USB 3 to really make use of it!

Cons: The cable is short - we're talking stupid short.

Other Thoughts: Don't use the included "Portable Secret" program that came with it. Use something like TrueCrypt Portable edition (freeware) to encrypt your things if you really need to have anything encrypted. According to many sources on Google the encryption program that comes with the drive uses hardware on the controller for the enclosure - so if you ever have to pull the drive out of the enclosure you are basically not going to be able to decrypt your data - if the sources on Google are correct.
