Got this to replace a failed hard drive. Put it in the system, fresh install, things were still freezing randomly and crashing intermittently. Life happened and i had to move suddenly and that computer sat unused for 11 months. Booted it back up this week put a fresh install of windows 7 on there and seatools is showing immediate failures, but more interestingly that the drive has been "running" for almost 2000 hours, which is absolutely impossible if it were new when i got it.
It would appear that I was sold a refurbished drive, and wasn't told about it. I was also unlucky enough to have to let it sit until the 1 year warranty expired. Minus points for both Newegg and Samsung on this one.
Ive only ever owned two samsung drives. One lasted about 7000 hours of moderate use, the other was DOA. Might be worth the extra 20 bucks to go Seagate or WD.
