Thanks, not a bad deal but my experiences aren’t very good with Samsung HDD. The last Samsung HDD I had was a 40GB, which unexpectedly died before all my WD, Maxtors, and Seagates. If it was another brand I might consider it :stuck_out_tongue:

Hmmm, in all fairness, 40GB was a long time ago. I have a 160 GB Spinpoint drive that used to run 24/7 for the first few years of it’s life, and is still trucking along in a firewire case.

Definately the right price point having hitg the $.25/gig mark, but on the other hand, if you’re patient, a seagate can be had for the same money.

I have 160 GB Samsung from Microcenter. It’s been chugging for about 2 years, no problems and is my quietest drive. I wouldn’t hesitate for second for Samsung.
