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