Good drive but Samsung RMA is horrible 9/17/2011 8:47:09 AM

Pros: Pretty fast and very cool

Cons: Failed after one year. Samsung RMA lost it although FedEx has a signature on file. I've now been waiting for ten days for a replacement drive, and there's no end in sight. Customer service won't do anything for you and you will be repeating every word three times... have to demand a manager to get things going, and even then it gets you nowhere. Shame on Samsung for outsorsing RMA to HiNet Systems, this company is atrocious.

Pros: I have had this drive for going on 5 years and it still works. Just recently it has started booting up slowly but it still works just fine. It was because of this drive that I now buy samsung drives.

Cons: Only con I can think of is that I payed a bit too much for it when I bought it :P It dropped $20 in 3 months. I

Overall Review: It does have a little too low cache but window's Ready Boost fixed that with a decent flash drive.

Excellent Drive 8/16/2009 9:40:00 PM

Pros: Low noise, quick transfers, reliable storage.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Have had the drive for about 7 months and in that time have used it for a lot of different kinds of storage with no issues. I would buy another one of these drives in a heartbeat, and I might end up doing that soon as I'd like to setup a raid soon.

All my work gone..... 7/25/2009 1:13:44 AM

Pros: For the year that it did work it was great

Cons: I was at a big lan when my hard drive up and died on me I almost cried, I am a huge gamer I need everything too keep working not work one minute die the next

Overall Review: I know it is not completely dead me and about 8 Techs at the Lan spent 5 hours debuging the **** out of it Not going with the brand again :( buyers beware you may have too say everything very importent on a flash drive or you will end up with a 60 dollar papper weight

Works very well 2/25/2009 8:44:10 PM

Pros: Quiet, cool and fast. Cooler and faster than an equivalent Seagate I have on the same Mac Pro.
This is the second one that I use on a Mac Pro in an Raid Mirror set.
So far so good.

Cons: none so far

hope this is better than the HD501LJ 2/21/2009 3:11:30 PM

Pros: Works great until it dies. It is a new series so hopefully they have fixed the problems.

Cons: I just had my 4th Samsung disk drive die. This one worked fined for 14 months of light usage. It was in a fan cooled external USB enclosure and used to store infrequently accessed videos.
After 14 months it began to lock-up and stop working intermittently. I moved the drive to another enclosure, and tried it on another system and the same behavior occurred.
I put a 750GB (a replacement for a previous failure) Samsung in the original enclosure and it has been working flawlessly since January 15. I just hope this one lasts

Overall Review: Of the six Samsung internal hard drive I have purchased, I have now had four failures. Two 750GB and one 500GB units failed within the first two weeks of use. This one lasted longer, but still failed with only lite use. The early failures NewEgg replaced. I awaiting a response from Samsung on how they will handle this one.
