5 out of 5 eggs5 years of near constant use

Pros: Used for file storage at home non stop. Quiet and fast enough for network transfers.

Cons: Triggered a SMART warning 4 years and 364 days after purchase.

Other Thoughts: I was able to retrieve all files before the drive actually failed completely. Might have been a false alarm but no need to take chances after 5 years.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Advertises a 3 year warranty.

Cons: Failed in under a year. Bought two at the same time. The other one still works.

Seems to run hot, will not survive in a micro ATX case. Buying this for a small budget PC? Don't, it'll overheat and nuke itself. Or buy a spot fan to cool specifically just this drive. I put a dedicated giant 100mm fan underneath the second drive after my first drive failed to make darn sure it would stay cool.

Never bothered trying to reclaim the warranty.

2 out of 5 eggsmeh - after maybe 50-75 hrs starting to "thump"

Pros: WAS a lot of storage for the money when i bought it in 2011

Cons: only used it for maybe 15-20 backups, 1.5 hours each, and recently started to use it for movie storage - not in a NAS or any other server setup, just a nexstar enclosure that i turn on when i'm ready to use it - about 30 days ago started thumping when on edge, sounds like my dog when he's scratching behind his ear and his leg is "thumping" on the floor. Laid it on it's side and the thumping it muted, but still there - got a feeling it's on it's way out. Two other samsung hard drives in same enclosures and same type of useage, but in svc much longer, still quiet as a church mouse

4 out of 5 eggsStill going

Pros: This thing is reliable. I ran it as my system drive for several years until I upgraded to a Seagate 2TB hybrid drive. I now use it as a storage and backup drive and it works great.

Cons: Transfer speed, obviously.

Other Thoughts: Reliable backup hard drive if anyone still has theirs.

5 out of 5 eggsFast for 5400 RPM

Pros: Lasted me over 3 years, no big deal.

This thing is a champion, fell out of my case and smashed against concrete from about 5 feet in the air... still works.

Cons: -5400 RPM is getting a little old

2 out of 5 eggsSeems good

Pros: Pretty fast for a SATA drive. Has a ton of space.

Cons: Didn't last! I had this hard drive in use since August 2011. and this week it fried. I lost all my data...Some school work, Work work, and my Resume! Back to the drawing board.

Other Thoughts: The warranty is 3 years so I am within range. Hopefully Samsung will compensate me for everything I have lost!

3 out of 5 eggsFinicky

Pros: Large storage, fairly quiet.

Cons: Hard drive, while it works, takes a while to start up regardless of external interface, chipset / controller, or cable.

Other Thoughts: Hard drive was purchased about 3 years ago, so might be on its last legs.
