Awesome Hard Drive for an Awesome Price

on 12/13/2012

The drive itself is incredibly fast. It handles loads of data with no problems. I've had it up and running for a few days now and I must say, I'm beyond impressed. I always trusted Samsung for their LCD's, but this drive has opened my eyes to see that they can do much more than just TVs.
