Experience: 2 Months


Fast, and great price, 32M cache
3 year warranty, though it is the standard now.
Works right out of box, very fast, not much else to say. I originally want to buy a Seagate, but read so much bad things about Seagate, after the debate, I sold my brand new Seagate 7200.11 to some one else at a loss and bought this F1 when it is on sale on NCIX. I notice an immediate faster computer response, HD tune reads about 90Mbps average read transfer speed.

Experience: 2 Months


Very quiet compared to my Seagate Drive
Pretty thick in terms of size. But I guess it's because its 1TB HDD.
I am very satisfied with this fast and quiet 1TB HDD.
This is my first Samsung HDD, and will gladly buy another if the price is right!

good price when on sell
there is a resonance noise which is really annoying(maybe it's my onw problem)
a pretty ordinary hard disk i think... for the one i got, it makes resonance noise with my case, however, it may be just my own problem.

Experience: 2 Months


Great Value
Not as fast as the Western Digital Black.
Very happy with this purchase. Wish I had bought more when it was on special for $100.

This review is absolutely tops for the a 1TB HDD comparison.,2017-13.html

Experience: 4 Weeks


Fast and Quiet!!
Great hard drive! Very quiet and fast.. cant ask for anything more from a hard drive other than extra space! I am very saitisifed with this product and would love to purchase another samsung hard drive in the future when it goes on sale again. Thanks NCIX!!

Experience: 2 Months


Fast & quiet!
Not quite as big or as fast as some of the newest drives
I bought this drive to supplement an aging Seagate drive for mass media storage. This drive does not disappoint, it's extremely quiet and quite fast to boot.

The only real downside is that I've already filled it but I've been so pleased with this drive that I am now waiting for the newer and larger Samsung F2 drives to be in stock.

Experience: 60 Days


-Excellent price/GB
-Surprisingly speedy performance
-Only 1 year warranty
-Samsung disk management tools aren't as useful as those from Seagate or WD.
These were again on sale so I ended up grabbing one for some additional storage space, though I was somewhat wary due to some other people having issues with Samsung quality. I'm not experiencing any problems so I can't complain in the least. Gives a great amount of storage space, the price per GB is easily affordable.

The drive itself has some decent speeds for accessing or writing, something I didn't quite expect from your average 1TB drive. It's far more silent than my 250GB WD OS Drive, so that's another added bonus, however Samsung doesn't have a plethora of Disk Management tools that are on par with Seagate or Western Digital.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Cool, quiet, fast, only 3-platters.
Cool, and quiet in keeping with Samsung's last generation of drives. There are faster drives out there, but this one strikes an excellent balance for me between speed and noise. This model also has 3 platters compared to up to 5 on some older drives, so presumably better reliability.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Fast transfer speeds, quiet, cool, price
None so far
Have used it for two weeks and its been working well. Data tranfers have been fast, no complaints about noise, and it stays cool. For the price it has been everything I expected and more. It didn't come with any cables but that is no big deal.

Experience: 14 Days


Quick, quiet, and cool running drive. Purchased based on past experience with the F1 500GB and 750GB models. Both have been cool running drives and this one is no different. Price special is the cheapest current price per GB - but that of course always changes. Very happy with these Samsungs.

Comment: "The fact that Samsung, a relatively small player in the hard drive market, is the first to offer a three-platter terabyte drive is an impressive feat in itself. But this is more than just a symbolic milestone. The Spinpoint F1 employs its three 334GB platters to provide incredible performance with
