fastest & cheapest & super-durable (2017 update)

Pros: 2017 - The ones I bought in 2010 were two of Samsung Spinpoint HD502HJ, before Samsung HDD division was sold to Seagate. Since 01/2010, these two drives accrued 19100 hours with 5700 power-on count, in RAID 0 setup. I was talking about platter count back in 2010, hoping for good reliability in RAID 0, but did not expect that it would be this good. Both disks are still heavily used everyday as my main download drive and are in healthy condition. I do want more storage now since two of these only make 1TB, but I don't know if there are any more reliable drives out there than these.

2010 - This is the fastest HDD you can find with a single 500GB platter, unlike most other drives that have two 250GB platters to make 500GB.

This is one of the cheapest performance HDD you can find due to Samsung's aggressive pricing strategy. It's a huge company, afterall.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: 2017 - I have not bought Seagate's version of old Samsung drives, so I cannot say much for Seagate drive.
2010 - SSD's are still much faster, but also much more expensive. My earlier Samsung SP2504C failed on me after 4 years of usage, I hope this one lasts longer.

Great hard drives. Great price

Pros: Bought three for our desktops. Been running them for over 5 years. Work great. No problems.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: We never turn off our computers. Our six seagate and samsung drives have never failed. 5 plus years. Still going strong.

It's a Seagate :-(

Pros: Cheap, worked for 44 months of nearly continuous operation (approx 32Khrs).

Cons: Died without warning. No longer recognizable on any computer. This drive is not advertised as Seagate, but the label clearly says Samsung & Seagate on it. Let the buyer beware.

Other Thoughts: No HD lasts forever, but <4 yrs is not good. My bad for not keeping backups. Time to spend some $ on data recovery as my penance. Replacement drive is a WD Black.

Going strong almost 5 years now!

Pros: This has been a good drive for me. The computer this drive is in runs almost all day every day going on 5 years now. Its been really good to me.

Cons: Short warranty but heck, I didnt need the warranty. It's still working!

Other Thoughts: This drive will become a back up drive for me as I'm building a new computer with a SSD. Can you guess what company I'm getting the SSD from?...Yep, Samsung! Picked up a 840 EVO from them. Sure hope I can get a good amount of use from the new Samsung SSD.
