The HE103UJ drive is a RAID certified version of Samsung's Spinpoint line. RAID certification can be important. Typical hard drives have error recovery features. When a drive goes into deep error recovery, the controller might see it as off-line if it takes too long to respond. Suddenly, your array is degraded, or worse, has failed. A degraded (and often a failed) array must be rebuilt. The process could take a day or longer, and you could get a substantial performance hit if your OS volume is on the array. RAID certified drives also have other behaviors that are RAID specific and important for good performance.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 and 7200.12 drives give relatively good performance, but I was not alone among users who found that these were very likely to drop out of RAID volumes.

Western Digital Caviar drives have worked well for many. The Green series will not give a level of performance that comes close to the Samsung. The Caviar Black will give performance that is better in many areas, but the drive is not RAID certified. WD's RE3 is a more robust RAID certified version of the Black, and might be the best overall in the 1TB RAID class. But it costs over 20% more as of this writing and I have not tried it.

Hitachi Deskstar drives are used successfully in RAID by many people. They perform well, but are not RAID certified. I tested one against the Samsung in a non RAID configuration. In some areas it was a better performer, and in some it was worse.

I checked the Web for independent tests and they were consistent with my findings. They also gave me a good idea of what to test and what to look for. A good example was on the [...] website where they did a thorough comparison. That gave me information about the RE3 among others that I did not test.

If you do a lot of video recording and playback or use your PC as a server, a "RAID" (also known as "Enterprise") grade drive is money well spent.

I have used several of these Samsungs in system builds. So far (knock on wood) not one of them has failed.

RAID/Enterprise drives are built to withstand the almost non-stop use in a server enviornment - higher heat tolerance and a longer MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) rating than standard-grade drives. These drives do NOT have to be used in a RAID setup; they can be installed and formatted individually like any other hard drive.

If you download, rip and playback movies and TV (DVD copying, P2P or with a TV tuner card), your hard drive is working non-stop during any of these activities - similar to running a car or motorcycle engine at redline for hours on end. This generates far more heat than basic PC tasks (Word, Internet, etc.); making a standard drive more likely to fail.

As a PC tech, one of the most common issues I run into are drives used for a few hours of video each day that fail after 3-12 months. Although the drive itself may still be under warranty, the data saved on it is gone forever (not to mention the pain in the a-- of getting a manufacturer's RMA, shipping it back and waiting weeks for replacement). On any PC that has frequent use (Video, Point-Of-Sale, CCTV), it's well worth the extra $30-$40 versus a cheap drive for the added piece of mind.

If you are concerned about compatability in a RAID setup (as other reviewers have noted), check the specs and/or QVL (Qualified Vendor List) for drive makes/models that have been tested by the manufacturer with your hardware and drivers. Western Digital makes "RE" series drives that offer the same RAID/Enterprise level performance and heat resistance.

Do not try to buy a Samsung HE103UJ hard drive from ServerSupply. Although I ordered four HE103UJ drives from this vendor, and although the packing slip that came with the drives listed the drives as HE103UJ, the drives were not this model. Instead, ServerSupply shipped HD103UJ drives (note the "D" instead of the "E"). Unfortunately, I did not double check the model numbers on the drives themselves before I installed them in a RAID 5 server.

There's a big difference between models HD103UJ and HE103UJ. Model HE103UJ is recommended for RAID configurations, whereas model HD103UJ is not. Because ServerSupply shipped the wrong drives, they failed after a day or two in my file server. I'm scrambling right now to get the proper HE103UJ drives and to see if I can recover the data from the HD103UJ drives.

It is inexcusable that a company that specializes in server supplies would ship the wrong drive and mark the wrong model number on the packing slip for the shipment. Buy from another vendor, not ServerSupply.

Verified Purchase
This drive does not work reliably with Supermicro AOC-SAT2-MV8 controller. Randomly it does not get detected upon boot. It is not clear whether it's the drive or controller to blame, because the controller works fine WD RE3 and Hitachi e7k1000 drives, but so does the Samsung with an on-board Intel controller. Googling revealed similar problems these drives have with some Nvidia controllers.
