    Pros: have used samsung drives before and they seemed OK. Good price.

    Cons: DOA. Need I say more.

    Overall Review: I guess any company can have a bad one every now and then. I usually buy Seagate and WD. They rarely let me down. Newegg was just out of stock for size I wanted for this one, so I got the samsung instead.

    Started failing intermittently 11+ months after purchase.

    Pros: It was fast, until it started failing.

    Cons: Worked well for about 11 months in an external USB 2.0 enclosure by Apricorn. Then, started to fail in a bizarre way. In particular, in "Administrative Tools" - "Computer Management" - "Device Manager," it was still detected as a piece of hardware, but disappeared from "Disk Management" completely and my DVD-ripping application started returning errors. Then, I got OS-generated eror messages. I replicated the failure several times, just to make sure. I am a computer systems/hardware engineer and do this for a living. RMA'd the thing to NewEgg and am waiting for a replacement. :-(

    Overall Review: It would be nice to have a longer warranty for these from the manufacturer. Invested US $160.00 into the thing and it failed a week before the NewEgg warranty expired. I am lucky it did not happen later.

    worked out of the bubble wrap

    Pros: Comes with the partition set to the full disk, no partition program is needed. It has worked without the slightest hickup through the Windows load process and update.

    Cons: None

    Overall Review: Only Newegg would pack a disk drive in just bubble wrap. Nothing especially bad, just a strange way to ship disk drives.

    Quiet drive, not that fast

    Pros: cheap & decent capacity. worked in my G4 powerbook without issue. very quiet. better then the 80G drive I had which was on its way out.

    Cons: speed is mediocre, 30-40mb/sec. I expected more given the 2X increase in storage density. could be a limitation of the mobo ATA controller... but I don;t know that for a fact.

    Overall Review: for the price, its ok if top I/O speed is not the name of game. works ok for editing DV or HDV on my laptop using FCP6 which is good for me. I was expecting faster read speeds.

    Samsung 160gb Notebook Drive

    Pros: Awesome little drive. Upgrade for a Dell XPS notebook. Added 100gb, less noise, runs cooler than the original 60gb Toshiba. Easy installation using the clone option with Acronis True Image. Practically a plug and play upgrade. Now I don't have to lug around that heavy external data drive!!

    Cons: None at this time.

    Works great

    Pros: I have owned the drive for over two months with zero problems. It is an OEM drive so it does not come with jumpers or any documentation. I installed mine and it worked right away.

    Cons: none

    I love it

    Pros: Normally I stick to Seagate or Western Digital brands but have been hearing much positives about these Samsungs in reviews all over and decided to get one for my Asus laptop... I am sold on Samsungs, this drive ROCKS... extremely quiet, good on temperature and fast....

    Cons: none so far

    Overall Review: relative to another good drive in 160gb range by Hitachi, this Samsung uses a bit less juice thus producing less heat, makes less noise and is slightly lighter which were additional characteristics that I based my purchase decision on
