1 out of 5 eggs 0 for 2, time to try another brand 02/21/2007

This review is from: SAMSUNG SpinPoint T Series HD501LJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros:

None

Cons:

Tried 2 of them and they were both DOA. The first booted once (while clicking that good old click of death), windows found it and created a partition but couldn't format it. Rebooted to run Samsung HUTIL and it wouldn't even get past POST. Second HD formatted and allows copying but the windows event log is full of unrecoverable write errors and SMART shows 6 parameters as MAJOR failures.

Other Thoughts:

My first foray into Samsung hard drives and apparently my last.
Newegg RMA service was exceptional and fast, less than 1 week to get a new hard drive in my hands.
