This video is for the 2 hard drives that I received from amazon.com. They arrived thrown into a box with no type of protection. I contacted amazon and they gave me a pre-paid label to send them back and sent me replacement drives with next day shipping. The drives that I received the next day were in MUCH better shape. Amazon states these drives are only 16 MB cache but I have confirmed by checking the model number they are 32 MB cache. When the box arrived I also checked the box for this inform ... ation and sure enough it was indeed 32 MB cache. These hard drives are great. They are quiet and very fast. At the end of the video I included some benchmark tests for these hard drives which I am running as 2 separate simple volume drives. More >

As of 9/8/11 I received my package and it was packaged perfectly. It was two boxes deep with a cradle for the HDD inside the inner most box and to cushion it they had air bags inside the lining between the first and second box. I do not need to review the performance (as this drive is two years old and the reviews are always amazing for this thing) but I want to let other Amazonians know that this is SAFE TO ORDER!

Recently bought the samsung drive after reading many reviews and finally making a choice. The drive arrived fairly fast from Amazon but when I opened the box found that the drive was inside the manufacturer's plastic packaging which would protect it from dust but otherwise just laying loose with a very small piece of bubble wrap that had deflated. Thought about sending it back at that point without even opening the manufacturer's packaging but needed the drive so decided to install it. So far th ... e drive has been flawless, and will probably buy another one, just probably not from Amazon since they can't seem to figure out how to properly pack their boxes. More >
