Drives like Samsung's SpinPoint M Series 120GB hard drive are a rarely seen but welcomed value. This hard drive is a high quality work horse that will help you easily plow through all your most demanding computing needs. With 5400 RPM, an average seek time of 12ms, and an average latency of 5.6ms, you’ll finally get the performance your notebook has been holding out on. A generous 8MB cache assists to decrease seek times and minimize the strain you put on your hard disk. If hard drive silence is your cup of tea, take a seat and have a sip of the silence delivered by Samsung’s SilentSeek technology. SilentSeek minimizes noise by effectively dropping the sound level emitted from the hard drive’s actuator, so whenever the hard drive executes a function your eyes, not your ears will witness the result.

Exclusive technology keeps the read/write head off the disk when not in use, enhancing energy efficiency and reliability. The SpinPoint series’ MTBF is 330,000 hours, so you can be sure this drive will give you many years of solid service, like all the products from Samsung. They’re aware that their future lies in the hands of the customer, and so provides a three year warranty. Purchase this hard drive today and finally taste the capacity, performance, and reliability you so much crave from your notebook. Get yourself a taste of the good life at a good price! Pick up Samsung's SpinPoint M Series 120GB hard drive today!

Pros: Decent speed and price; runs perfectly in laptop. No problems with sound.

Cons: None as of yet.

Overall Review: My laptop is a 4 year old HP pavillion. The previous hard drive crashed to the point of no return. I was worried that the computer could of possibly caused the crash, but since adding the Samsung it has had no problems.

Died 2 weeks out of warantee 11/17/2007 4:53:50 PM

Pros: Ultra-quiet and fast. The only click I ever heard was when it died.

Cons: It died very suddenly, went from smooth and quiet to giving me a smart warning and killing the system in a matter of 15 seconds. System froze and would not boot. Data is not recoverable, but recently backed up critical files...

Overall Review: I was pretty happy with this drive, but I can't afford this kind of reliability, even if the drive was at a good price.

Pros: I have bought 2 of these. The first is the primary drive on my laptop, and it's lasted almost a year. The second died after 8 months, almost taking my girlfriend's graduate thesis with it--thankfully, I have recovery software). It took about 1.5 weeks for a replacement to arrive from Samsung. Time will tell how long this one lasts.

Cons: 1 of 2 died after 8 months.

Overall Review: 1.5 week turnaround isn't too bad for a replacement drive...
