4 out of 5 eggs5.5/6th good

Pros: Got a good deal at the time, basically half the price of what it is now . . . weird, I would think it should be the other way around. was pretty fast when everything was working

Cons: After almost 2 years 1 of my 6 hard drive in RAID 5 is acting funny. I haven't lost any data that I know of but it is at risk and slow. Looks like it's time to buy 1 or 2 new ones and the price is 2x of what it used to be :'(

Edit: 8 years later another drive failed :')

Other Thoughts: I think I'm going to wait for the price to go back down but my PC is soooo slow right now running with a wacky semi broken array.

I think I'm going to redo the RAID system and do RAID 10 this time, lose a lil space but get faster speeds

going to set up the good old price watch

5 out of 5 eggsR.I.P 2010 - 2016

Pros: It did well for 5 years. Thank you Samsung.

Cons: Unfortunately it died on me on Feb. of 2016. I made a back up of this drive, all of it, into another internal drive and 2 external drives. I wished it gave me some kind of SMART warning but it told me it was all good until the day of death. Windows Disk Management labeled it as healthy, WD Disk tools said it was good, Speccy said it was good, and CrystalDiskInfo said it was all good as well.

No warning, it just died one afternoon. Regaedless, it served me well for the past 5 years.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked great until I retired it

Pros: Worked fine as my primary store drive. Purchased in early 2010 and used it for about 5 years until I got a larger one.

Cons: I believe it was making a slight clicking noise when reading/writing but my new one did the same and all of my HDDs have always done that and I've never had one fail/die on me. I know there is always the possibility though, so I always keep a backup of everything.

5 out of 5 eggsStill running since 2010

Pros: Fast enough, still running well, no bad sounds or errors after 5+ years. Has been used as a gaming and download hard drive almost exclusively. Runs cool, runs quiet. I don't know what more you could ask for from a hard drive circa 2010.

Cons: none, runs great.

Other Thoughts: back when samsung made mechanical hard drives and branded them, yada yada. Now-a-days you may as well buy an SSD for the reliability and warranty, oh yeah and the speed. Samsung used to make some pretty reliable mechanical drives several years ago. This is one of those.

5 out of 5 eggs4 Years, No Issues

Pros: Really not much to say, all you want out of an HDD is that it's relatively fast, relatively large, and above all else will last. The only thing you can't tell from the tech specs above is the longevity.

Purchased this drive in August 2011, it's now November 2015 and it's been the main drive for my desktop since then. It's been written to capacity, had files moved onto my external drive, filled to capacity again, so on and so on yet it still keeps going.

Cons: No cons I can think of, I'd get more if they were still up here.

5 out of 5 eggs4 years and 4 months strong

Pros: This hard drive has not failed once despite how heavily I have burdened it with games, videos and photos, partitions, etc.

Samsung did a great job with this hard drive, as its longevity is unrivaled.

Get Samsung drives, whether its SSD or HDD

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsVERY DEPENDABLE, QUIET,FAST AND CHEAP

Pros: AWESOME HARD DRIVES i have had these since my old amd am2 build with an 940 black.

bought 5 for a raid 10 or raid 5 setup over the years. i cannot say how pleased i am with these.
low power
quiet
have ran as raid 5 and 10 and even used 2 in raid 0 with os installed for a few years with the other 3 in the raid 5.

i have not punished these drives mostly just for home video redundant storage. i bought these in 2008 i think for 45 dollars each (this is when 1tb was MASSIVE and most people had 250/500gb drives.

still going and i think will be reused for one last build on z170 asrock extreme 7. ALL sata will be used lol

Cons: non well maybe by today considered slow being the older sata 3 gb's. but who cares for a storage nas for PERSONAL use.
numbers raid zero got 300ish mb/sec
raid 10
raid 5 (3 drives) 75ish read write dont remember parody
etc slows down but still wanna say 50-60ish.

anyway i bought these when seagate/western came out with all this need enterprise drives at 250 ea to do raid craaapp and never failed me once.

Other Thoughts: am i the only guy who actually maxes out the intel sata chipsets????
