I recommend this hard drive to anyone who desires a quality item.

Load times for booting up and opening programs are blazing fast now compared to my older 160gb 7200rpm drive.

This video is for the 2 hard drives that I received from amazon.com. They arrived thrown into a box with no type of protection. I contacted amazon and they gave me a pre-paid label to send them back and sent me replacement drives with next day shipping. The drives that I received the next day were in MUCH better shape. Amazon states these drives are only 16 MB cache but I have confirmed by checking the model number they are 32 MB cache. When the box arrived I also checked the box for this information and sure enough it was indeed 32 MB cache. These hard drives are great. They are quiet and very fast. At the end of the video I included some benchmark tests for these hard drives which I am running as 2 separate simple volume drives.

As of 9/8/11 I received my package and it was packaged perfectly. It was two boxes deep with a cradle for the HDD inside the inner most box and to cushion it they had air bags inside the lining between the first and second box. I do not need to review the performance (as this drive is two years old and the reviews are always amazing for this thing) but I want to let other Amazonians know that this is SAFE TO ORDER!

Recently bought the samsung drive after reading many reviews and finally making a choice. The drive arrived fairly fast from Amazon but when I opened the box found that the drive was inside the manufacturer's plastic packaging which would protect it from dust but otherwise just laying loose with a very small piece of bubble wrap that had deflated.
Thought about sending it back at that point without even opening the manufacturer's packaging but needed the drive so decided to install it. So far the drive has been flawless, and will probably buy another one, just probably not from Amazon since they can't seem to figure out how to properly pack their boxes.

The drive performs as stated, good value for the money.
Slightly better performance than WD Caviar black and at a better price.
My only regret is that I didn't get the 2tb one.

I got four of these with a new system 14 months ago. I just finished doing an image rebuild of my windows 7 system because two drives went bad. My system started acting up last month and after downloading several tools, I found one that told me my drive had way to many faults and needed to be replaced. I must say, SMART worked quite well at masking the problem for many months apparently, doing its hidden remapping thing on the bad drive. I tried installing windows on one of the other four drives and after some time, it took but this was suspect too. I could see the install of windows going fast, then real slow, then fast, then real slow. Made me think again that this second drive had bad spots. After the windows re-install I had similar issues running from the second drive. I could not for example install new video drivers on the clean install of windows. After a couple of hours I scrapped the second drive too. The new install exhibited the same behavior as the old one. So I used windows backup to make an image copy of my windows 7 system from the first drive, placed on a third drive. Then I unplugged these two bad drives and rebooted into windows repair. I then used windows image restore to restore to the fourth drive. Flawless. Did not loose a thing. Of course I now have two useless drives with lots of errors on them, but I am very happy I choose to get four drives when I bought the system originally otherwise I'd be screwed.

IN SHORT:

The drives are inexpensive and fast enough. But two out of four drive failures in 14 months is a very bad record I think. I can't say this is typical, only that this is my experience with them. Perhapes what disgusts me the most is that I never actually used three of the four drives, so for drive #2 to also be too bad to use, means it came that way from the begining. What crap is that eh?

Hail Flavius!

I purchased 2 of these back in September of 2011. As of July of 2012, both disks have significant uncorrectable errors and are unusable.

Manufacturer's warranty is supposedly 1 year. Samsung/Seagate websites says they are out of warranty.

I would beware of this seller and these drives. I have been completely unsuccessful at getting these bad disks RMA'd.

I bought this hard drive in June '11 for a custom build, and it has worked perfectly fine.

I just wanted to point out for those who are curious, that the Windows Experience Index subscore for this HD is 5.9.

Carry on.

I have had great experience with Samsung hard drives and this one is no exception. It runs cool and accesses my files quickly. I have had no problems at all with this drive.
