This review is from: OEM Samsung EB-L1G6LLZ Li-Ion Battery for Galaxy S3 i9300 2100mAh FAST USA SHIP
Pros: Should be compatible with all Galaxy S3 models regardless of carrier. Keyword is should. Used on Verizion model (SCH-I535).
Cons: Received battery is not exactly as listed. It's still compatible. But it's not good when the item you get has a model number different from what you're ordering. The item listing and its description should be updated to reflect that. Item description should list all the possible model number for the battery and what it is compatible with.
Other Thoughts: Battery life so far is good. Lasts about 1.5 to 2 days on a charge with extremely light usage. My S3 is reduced to being an alarm clock so this will extend the life for just a while longer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, responsive, and small. Makes a great laptop replacement drive or as an upgrade.
Cons: Very minimal packaging, it simply comes with the drive and that's it. If your case does not have mountings for a 2.5 drive, you should grab a mounting adapter prior to purchasing.
Other Thoughts: I've been spoiled by SSD. Ever since I started using it on my Win7 desktop, it's been so responsive and fast to use. Boot time is short and loading large games have been quick.
With the 850 EVO, I dropped this into a laptop with a Core i3 CPU in it. Not only does the laptop boot insanely fast but everything is now responsive and snappy. I used to put the laptop into hibernation when it was using the hard drive. It's now fast enough that I don't need hibernation any more.
Pros: large capacity, speedy, works when it does work
Cons: Bad apple, quality a shadow of former self
Other Thoughts: Purchased this on Nov 23, 2012. Nearly a month ago, the drive half-died on me. By half-died, it went ka-put but power-cycle (power down, power on) brings it back to life. It can be detected on start up, but reading data off of certain random areas takes a while. Worse yet is that some data became unreadable. Fortunately I was able to barely move essential files to another working drive, despite that it took hours for that to get done.
This is one of the drive models that Backblaze uses in their storage systems. It had one of the worst failure rate out of the drives they've ran and used. Yet I don't put the kind of strain or load, the drive still couldn't live longer than it should have. I thought I could trust Seagate with the kind of reliability that they had. But I guess they've really gone downhill.
I don't think it's worth getting Seagate drives any more. It's disappointing when a company as big and as reputable as Seagate starts throwing out bad drives that couldn't last longer than their biggest competitor: Western Digital.
Conclusion: avoid this drive like the plague.
