5* Nice little drive
Reviewed by Archie on 08/01/2012
I was looking for a large capacity storage device for an HTPC based on the Shuttle XS35GT V2 and this certainly fits the bill. It slotted straight into the chassis with no fuss and was detected immediately by the BIOS. It is very quiet, so quiet in fact that you have to have your ear right up to the case to hear it working. An all round excellent product at a reasonable price, which is what I have come to expect from Samsung.
4* Excellent reliable drive ...
Reviewed by Mark H on 03/09/2013
I bought one from BT about 10 months ago as a second drive for my Samsung laptop. Installation was simple without having to fiddle in the BIOS and all I had to do was partition and format it the way I wanted it ... 10 months on it has had an absolute beating from me shifting hundreds of gigabytes of data on and off the drive every day, repeatedly for various projects, running the laptop and drive sometimes continuously for several days while I slept and did other work. And it still works with not one failure.
3* Failed drive
Reviewed by Kerry on 14/08/2013
Disappointed with this drive only lasting 18months before fatal errors making the drive unusable. Will avoid Samsung brand.
Up till it failing it has been great.
