5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive-Saved me

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: I bought this external drive in Sept of 2013 and use it for backups with SyncBackSE and AOMEI both I recommend highly. I installed Win10 all the way to making a disk image. I shut down to reboot and test the whole thing and the memory stick in slot one failed trashing the boot loader and the bios. Had to replace the mother board. Restored the image off of this 2 year old Seagate Barracuda drive in this Samsung box and everything was back up. I am going to buy another of these drives. I don't know what the MTBF is on these drives they are not high end NAS drives but certainly good enough for the everyday user. And it saved my rear end!

Cons: None. If the drive failed now it would be worth every penny I paid.

Other Thoughts: Some people have had a hard time with these but my experience has been excellent. And I will buy another one.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good HD

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: The key pro for me at least has been the drives reliability, I currently own 6 of the 2TB models purchased at various times this past year or so with the 2 oldest ones purchased back in November of 2013. All of these drives are used daily and are plugged into a USB 3 powered hub. The other pro is that these USB 3 drives have a 3 year warranty. Though not necessary each of these drives come with Samsung Drive Management software that makes it easier if you wish to encrypt some of the data on the drive etc. The other PRO is these drives using USB 3 are fast enough to stream H264 HD video with 5.1 or 7.1 audio. Also I use one of my drives for my Steam install, all of my Steam games are on it and I have never had any issues with game play.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: After reading several of the customers questions and seeing the the question of what kind of drive is inside asked repeatedly here is what I found. I had a HD fail in my PC and since I already had 6 of these USB 3 drives here and one was pretty empty I decided to just take the drive out of the case and discovered that it is, at least for the 2TB version or at least inside mine is a Segate 2TB Barracuda Model ST2000DM001 that is a 7200 RPM drive.

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK! Can't format.

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: I bought this in June, 2014 and paid $70 for it.

Cons: I've turned this thing on maybe five times to copy data to it just to test it out. Today, I hook it up, and although Windows "sees" it, it can't format it or write to it. So, now I need to attempt the dreaded RMA process. Oh, and there is no power switch on this thing. I've always hated that fact.

Other Thoughts: Even if Samsung offers to fix this brick, I highly doubt I will ever use it again. I can't trust this thing. Look at all of the other bad reviews. Do you really want to take that kind of chance with a piece of plastic junk? That's all it is folks. Listen to everyone on here. Unless you're just plain lucky, I would spend a few dollars more on something with better reviews.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: none

Cons: Died after a year. RMA process is a nightmare. I actually went through eight different options on Samsung's phone tree only to have them transfer me to seagate in the end. Seagate does not support RMA of this device on their website, you have to call. The person who answered was very polite, but had to put me on hold twice due to computer issues on their end with validating the serial number. BTW, postage for the return is on you.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy another Samsung or Seagate product. What a nightmare.

1 out of 5 eggsSteer Clear

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: Looks Good

Cons: Died after a year and lost all my family pics

Other Thoughts: Seriously, if you don't care what you put on here, then go for it. I can't believe that this piece of doodoo that was so highly rated when I purchased it snuffed out on me in so short a time period. It just clicks twice then goes silent and the light blinks continuously.

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: Price, looks

Cons: Sloooow
Windows back up very unreliable with this drive

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 for managing on/off site back up for Windows 2012 server. Has been unreliable from day one. Worst thing, it took a while to figure out the problem is in these drives. I kept blaming Windows back up for not being able to back up full server about 50% of the times. VM portion of back up is what was failing.
By a chance hooked up WD drive. Back ups never failed. Went back to Samsung, same failures half the time.

I also compared backup time when succeeded. WD takes about 2 hrs. Samsung - 8 hrs. Both hooked through same cable to same USB 3.

I wish the drive just failed, so I did not have to keep spending time figuring out why back up was so unreliable.

1 out of 5 eggsCrashed in 7 days after first use

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: None

Cons: Crashed in 7 days after the first use. It is made by Seagate which has the lowest reviews on the market. I am staying away from Seagate products because of the bad reviews and buying Samsung because I had good experience.... until now. Poor disclosure of the product.

Pros: 4T for $109

4 out of 5 eggsOverall NIC!

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: Very nice design, quiet, my 2TB FORMATTED drive is 2.2TB (a first time for me)! I like the multivoltage adapter with various plugs (great for when I travel). It is a Seagate product.

Cons: NO POWER SWITCH (really a Con), no power saving features, short USB 3.0 cable, bright front mounted white LED,.

Other Thoughts: I think this was a very good value and am greatly surprised by the formatted capacity! Will buy the 4TB model.
