A large drive at a good price which is actually very fast, with sustained large file writes peaking at around 160 MB/sec - blazingly fast for an external drive. Some other 3TB drives I've seen at a similar price (less than £10 cheaper) could barely reach 40MB/sec on similar transfers, which is pathetic.

Even after an extended write session of many hours, the case was warm rather than getting hot, and remained quiet throughout.

Only owned this drive for a couple of weeks, but so far operation has been flawless.
Highly recommended.

This drive will work as a plug & play device with windows XP & 7 so as soon as you get it I would forget all the software it comes with, in fact, start by right click --> format --> Quick format; especially if you are buying this drive to backup your precious PC files, the last thing you want is something non standard in the equation! Like all 3.5" drives it is big and bulky and heavy so if this for portable use, buy a 2.5" drive such as the Western Digital My Passport or the Tosh / Samsung versions.
It is fast but you will need to plug it into a USB 3 port on your PC to get the advantage, it still works on a normal USB 2 port but at USB 2 speed which for a 4TB drive is S....L...O...W! On a top of the range Quad Core, i7 etc, filling it up with 5000 films, USB 3, takes about 18 hours which is pretty fast.
As with all 3.5" high performance drives, it consumes more power than a USB port can provide consequently requires the external power supply it comes with. Somewhat annoyingly (and dangerous) which drives me mad with most products nowadays, the supplied PSU says Honor Electronics and NOT Samsung 3.5" external drive, so if you are like me and have a house full of gadgets and external PSUs and don't want to set your house on fire when you get them all confused, you will need a label as soon as it comes out of the box! However, the supplied PSU does in fact run Toshiba Canvio and other external drives but not the other way around so this is good.
I have read some of the other write ups regarding loss of data and unreliability...

Installation on Windows 7 x64 and x86 and Windows Vista x86 was a breeze, with no glitches. So using this item across my workstation and two laptops is simplicity itself. Quiet, lots of storage space, low heat production and attractive, although the snooze mode can cause a comparatively lengthy pause while the drive spins up and allows access. I have no real complaints about this unit and I have two sitting on my desk and will be purchasing another later this summer. The data transfer speed is acceptable, as is search access and general use, although the spin down mode kicks in fairly early it does reduce power consumption and heat generation, which is a bonus. The power supply unit seems to be pretty robust although the power to unit cable is thin and probably fragile so won't survive constant abuse without cracking.

While the price is market average, the quality is excellent with a strong plastic casing, well situated ports for USB and power and a slimline upright profile reducing it's desktop footprint. As a result of it's spin down "snooze" function, this drive produces considerably less heat than other similar drives I've had from other manufacturers - so presumably has an extended life-span compared to those alternatives.

I can't comment about delivery as I have paid for prime and this arrived next day as promised, the packaging was robust and survived postal abuse with no damage to the drive packaging. So no complaints there either. Plus it was easy to get into the boxes and remove the drive with pack to set-up time being a matter of a minute or two.

This thing has been sitting on my desk in daily use since purchase and aside from the fairly bright four dot light on the front of the case (which flickers when the drive is in use) it's quiet enough to forget it's there.

In general I'm very pleased with this unit, and have had zero issues using the two I own.

I've had the 3TB Samsung for a month, and I'm finding it a very speedy & reliable drive for use with my MacBook. I use it primarily for Time Machine and for storage of large media files, including HD video, which I can play back from the drive without lag or stutter - even while a Time Machine backup is going on in a separate partition on the same drive.

The only negative point is that it does have a slightly annoying spinup whine compared to other drives I've used, as well as an audible tapping noise when accessing. I don't believe it's faulty. These sound like the typical noises that a hard drive makes, just a bit louder than I've previously encountered. It's virtually silent when running without accessing.

I scanned it for bad blocks as soon as I received it (none found).

If you're planning to use it with an Intel Mac for Time Machine backups or as a startup disc, remember to change the partition scheme to GUID, as recommended by Apple, before you do anything else. You can do this in Disk Utility.
