The Samsung Spinpoint F1 (HD103UJ) is a fast, inexpensive hard drive with a large amount of space, however it really is quite unreliable. When formatted in windows, you are basically left with 931GB, which is obviously quite big. Great for HD content, music and games (no need to uninstall). Mine was whisper quiet and temp of the hard drive never passed 40c. It was easy to slot in my comp and as with most drives, consisted of multiple holes which allowed me to screw it firmly in my case. The F1 Hard Drives consist of three 334GB platters which is what makes them so fast. Read and write speeds were fairly good, games loaded very quickly and HD content ran very ...

I find the Samsung Spinpoint F1 to be a fast and well perfoming hard drive. The drive noise isnt very noticable unless you seek it out and generally I am pleased with the speed and reliability of the drive. I have done numerous checks using tools on this terabyte hard disk (931 in reality if we count gigibytes) and they have all come back stating that the disk is healthy and in good shape. Temperatures are a little high for a hard drive, but for a performance product you should expect a little heat. Technical reviews praise the F1s speed, seek times and overall throughput. I havent really noticed a time when I had to wait for the disk to spin up considering that this ... Read the complete review

After having a Samsung 160Gb IDE drive die after just a fortnight's use three years ago I vowed not to buy Samsung again. However, after spotting a one terabyte hard-drive for the cost of 750Gb models from Maxtor and Seagate I just couldn't resist. There's not a great deal to say about an internal hard disc, but I guess that saying that it hasn't failed after two months of usage is a positive review ;) The disk is pretty quiet and only audible under heavy seeking. One special feature of this drive is the 32Mb of cache which gives incredible read performance. My previous boot disc was a 320gb Maxtor, however when running an HDD Benchmark I noticed that this ...

Samsung are a huge electronics giant- I think they're one of the only manufacturers to make all the components in house. At the time of purchase this was the fastest 1tb drive on the market, and had a good reputation and reviewed well. The problem with reading reviews of a product that's been on the market for less than 1 year is that there's no time for long term testing, and from these 4 dooyoo reviews you can see that 3 of us have had drive failures. I might be slightly unique in that it might have been me that killed the drive rather than an outright failure- but still it's one of only a handful of drives that have died on me, and i've done ...
