These F3 spinpoint drives are the best 7200 rpm drive you can possibly get for the money, the 1tb drive is also very nice. A single platter 500gb drive that has better average read/write times then my 80gb Velociraptor 10k drive. The Velociraptor only beats it in burst speeds.
Raid 2 of these and see 300mb speeds. Buy it before they are out of stock and they were for a long time in lots of places.

Pros:
One year has passed since the F3 first came out and as far as I can tell it's still the fastest 7200 rpm 500 gig drive on the market, faster than Seagate 7200.12 (clearly) and WD Caviar Black (just barely). Probably the quietest as well. I bought and reviewed this drive almost a year ago--it was my first Samsung--and my experience thus far has been all good. Have bought three more since. No regrets. The F3 has become my drive of choice.

Cons: My older F3s, while performing good as new, are now producing more vibration than my new ones. This concerns me. I will update this review if there is further deterioration.

Other Thoughts:
From my first NewEgg review 8/29/09: "I was looking for the fastest single-platter drive, for the usual technical reasons, having been very pleased with the single-platter low-profile drives in the 7200.10 series. Wasn't sure if the new F3 would live up to the F1's excellent reputation. Found some tests of F3s released a bit earlier in Europe and decided to take a chance. The Polish benchmark turned out to be the closest to what I ended up getting. My newly formatted, otherwise empty disk showed HD Tach readings of 256.2 MB/s burst, 13.5ms random access, 4% CPU utilization, and 121.9 MB/s average read. I tested three times and the numbers were within 1-2%, this being the best. Looks like the F3 is indeed faster than the 7200.12 in synthetic testing. As to real world performance and longevity, we'll see. Will follow up this review if I run into any issues. Based on my first impression, though, I've already ordered a second drive."

Now I have four. Glad I took a chance when these first came out. I have included screen shots of my HD Tach results above.

I was pleasantly surprised when I received this drive and it was in very good packaging,(wish I had taken some pics), but after reading a lot of negative comments all over Amazon about how they ship hard drives, I was very skeptical about ordering one, however my fears were assuaged when I got it and it was in a box, in its plastic packaging with some some foam around it. One could see that there was no way it would be moving around while in transit. Thumbs up Amazon, apparently u listened to your customers. Drive is silent btw and wrks gr8.

Installed Samsung Hard Drive on my Pentium 4 SATA I with Windows XP Professional. The Samsung automatically converts to SATA I. The HD did not come with jumpers (OEM). I had an extra around. No issues. No complaints. Works fine.

I replaced two older Western Digital Raptor WD740GD drives installed in a striped RAID array with two of these Samsung HD502HJ hard drives. These drives are much faster by comparison. Read and write times are nearly 50% faster and latency is somewhat lower although seek time is somewhat slower probably due to the slower RPM of these drives (I used HDD Tune 2.55 to benchmark the drives). These drives are also much quieter, so quiet in fact that I'm unable to hear them over ambient noise. I've had them running for about two months without a glitch. Highly recommended.

Since I first started using Samusung Drives back in 2003 in the when of the IDE, and then I bought the SATAI and SATAII, and soon SATAIII, I haven't had a glint of a problem with any of them. The IDE's have been out of warranty over 4 years now. Still quiet and no sign of any trouble, but if they do, HEY, I got my bang for the buck! I bought this drive as a back-up for my 5 drive raid. A certain name brand that uses a fish and tiger for their models, I didn't fair so well. I won't buy their "top of the line" or any of their models again. Last year I had to return two 3.5's and two 2.5 incher's that were not even a year old. It is sad because that company used to make surpurb drives. I know that stistically one can get a bad unit made by anybody. BUT four bad drives in one year!
