    Samsung HDD's are really Bad???
    I am having two Hard disk both Samsung of which 1 is 14 months old and other is 4 months old...This 4 months old Harddisk has Bad Sectors on it(Have no Idea from where did they came)
    and other one creates a lot of Creepy Noise all the Time ...
    Now I have given the harddisk for replacement to my Dealer, But Recently I found a Page on Samsung Site that They Only replace the HDD with the Refurbished Drives....
    http://www.samsung.com/Products/HardDiskDrive/warranty/index.htm
    Which is Not so with Seagate HDD They Always give the NEW one....
    I advice you people to go for seagate hard disks, one of my friends is using Seagate HDD from last 3 years and No problems till now..

    Please tell me Yr Experience with Samsung...Though mine was bad...

    Yes, I would say that samsung is the worst performer in Hard disk area and anybody thinking of buying new Hard disk should go for the Segate Sata Hard disks....

    i m using a samsung 80 GB SATA HD, on Intel 865GBF motherboard, so far from the last 1.5 years, hardly any problem ever, although i remember paying a premium at that time for it

    I guess seagate is a clear winner in hard disk drives. I have had some good experiences with Western Digital as well. Maxtor? No way. Two hard drives crashed, taking all my movies with them...
