Worked good from 2011 to 2018

Pros: Was good for the money at the time.

Cons: Didnt last longer running in my home server powered on 24/7 from 2011 to 2018. lol not really a con, nothing last forever.

Other Thoughts: Been running this in an old machine that's been sitting on a shelf for many years running an apache web server on Ubuntu linux. When it finally started to go, my bios read the Smart data and warned of an impending failure. Cant ask more of a drive that actually warns you that its gonna die soon.

Large for laptop drive but slow seek speeds

Comments: I got this to replace a 160gb 7200rpm drive I mistakenly bought for a Mac Mini - I had meant to buy a larger drive. The drive fit with some coaxing into the Mini but it was a tight fit. The seek times are so slow that when I upgraded to Lion I got the spinning colored pinwheel of death so often that I decided to go back to the 160gb 7200rpm drive and use an external drive for file storage.

seemed like a good buy...

Comments: After having this drive (1TB 12.5mm 2.5" notebook drive) in my 13" 2010 Macbook Pro Unibody for about 3 months, it crashed on me. Unfortunately I had not done a backup for about 2 months, so I lost a fair amount of data. I restored everything from the backup (Time Machine), and since then it has been showing "SMART Status" was "failing". I contacted Samsung, they told me to wait for it to die again. WHAT??? So, I have been continuing to use it in my Macbook Pro since it failed 5 months ago, doing a daily backup of the drive. It is still showing Smart status as "failing". I recently tried to update my OS to Lion, and it won't because of the error.. so now Samsung wants to RMA it.. but that means I will be without a laptop for up to 2 weeks while I wait for them to replace my drive for me... I'm not happy.

Does not fit in PS3 Fat Version CECHA but with a 22 pin SATA Male to Femal cable... it Works!!!!!

Comments: It was much easier just using the 2TB external seagate hard drive but some games require an internal hard drive formated to FAT32 will split some larger sized files on games such as Grand Turismo 5, Metal of Honor, Lego Batman, Uncharted, Kill Zone 3, ect. A 750GB hard drive would probably been more than enough but who wants to brag out 750GB when you could have a Samsung HM100UI 1TB, right?

Fits fine in MacBook Pro, but Samsung denies it exists

Pros: Fits perfectly fine in 2010 MacBook Pro 15".

Cons: Samsung's web site has no support pages for this model, and any searches on their site tell me that this drive does not exist.

After a week, all my apps would occasionally all SPOD at once. Someone said to change the jumpers to reduce the interface speed from 3.0Gb.s to 1.5Gb/s. I could not find any documentation anywhere on what jumpers to set.

Works with DL360G6

Pros: I purchased this drive after testing a few other brands. This drive does not make your fan speed increase with the HP DL360 G6 since.

Cons: Pricey, waiting for another sale to buy 3 more.
