SAMSUNG Spinpoint M7 HM500JI 500GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Drives perform well and are from a fairly trusted brand.

Cons: Had 4 out of 25 fail or corrupt data within 1.5 years of usage in a small business. Systems were running either Win7 Pro x86 or x64 in standard laptop configurations. 1 of the 4 failed drives had unrecoverable data using normal recovery tools and had to be sent to a data recovery service (unfortunately the regular backup was not sufficient). We'll see how many others fail by the end of the 2nd year of use.

Other Thoughts: My experience with other Spinpoint models has been great so far, but I would definitely avoid this model if you can help it.
