Default Samsung 640GB

Just happen to see a Samsung 640GB drive as well, and at the moment compu2000 has it for abt $73. Its the cheapest 640gb drive out there. I just haven't been able to find any reviews, I did do a quick search on google and found many different forums where users are commenting that it seems to be better than both Seagate and WD.

I wonder how these are..

Samsung makes Mainfraimes I think. They are like Fujitsu hardware. Mainfram storage is teh best and longest lasting. NOt sure bout a PC drive from theough

You can be sure that it will be quiet. Samsung makes great drives, but their random-access times always blow.

I would never pick a Samsung HD over a WD or Seagate. Especially not for a $5 savings.

Save $5 today, lose your data tomorrow.
