5.0 out of 5 stars Good things come in small packages 28 Oct 2011
A great little device, the 1TB size means i have tried my hardest but so far have not filled it, even though it stores all of my music, photo's, movies etc etc etc. Comes with a small black slip-on case in the box, so i went with the cheaper black model over twice the price crazy colours since you only ever see the case anyway! Makes no noise at all, and has a small blue light that eminates from the top front when it's plugged in. Requires no additional power supply other than the single USB cable it comes with(approx 30cm long), so can plug into any USB 2.0 port to function. Tried with my old computer that uses USB 1.0 to extract all of my files to transfer onto my new pc and it still runs, but runs even slower than USB 1.0 should, i mean very very slow, but was the only way to get all of my old files off of it.

When you plug in for the first time you need to wait for your pc to auto detect install (same as any portable USB device), and after that you will have to format it before you can use it as a portable HD - please check online how to do so if you are unsure.

I only use it for storing my files, and not for automatic pc backup, so can't comment on any aspects like that. But i have owned it for about a year now, take it with me everywhere i go, dropped it, bashed it, now has many dents on the case that it came with, and it still functions perfectly. A very robust and stirdy little device that is much smaller than i thought it was going to be! I would highly recommend this item. As a matter of fact im going to buy a second one for my partner to backup all of her files also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent hard drive! 12 Aug 2011
This drive is excellent! It's faster making a time machine backup than my "western digital mybook essential". It is silent and runs off the usb power, so no adapters! Only time will tell how long before it lasts, but so far I am extremely happy because of it's ergonomics, size, quietness, and fast speed! When the price drops I will get another one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Portable Ever 11 Jan 2012
By HanaBi
Verified Purchase
I have had quite a few external hard drives over the years: some good, some extremely bad. And that's irrespective of the more established manufacturer names such as Western Digital. The sober truth is that there is no absolutely guarantee that just because you've bought a drive from such a branded name it will be perfect.

So rather than venture down the same Western Digital road I decided to go for something a little different. To be honest I didn't even know Samsung produced hard drives. I know they're one of the biggest electronics companies in the world: so much so that I recently bought one of their Smart HDTVs, and have been very pleased with the results thus far. And since I also have a Samsung smartphone - again with similar satisfying results - I decided to take a chance with this particular portable drive.

It was despatched in very good time (within 2 working days, even though I went for a standard delivery). The only one thing I would say about the delivery would be the packaging by the supplier. Given the delicate nature of hard drives I would have thought something far more substantial than a flimsy jiffy bag would have been preferred; or at least a red stamp on it saying "FRAGILE". Fortunately the drive didn't appear to be damaged either internally or externally, but perhaps I was just lucky.

The installation is pretty straightforward: a rather short (about 25-30 cms) USB2.0 cable plugs into the back of the drive and into your laptop/pc. The drivers should be automatically detected, and within about a minute the PC picked up the drive and assigned a letter..

It is true to say you don't get the full 1Tb of space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Samsung 1TB external HD 7 Nov 2011
By jaytei
Verified Purchase
Excellent! Spent 5 days backing up all my old DVD / CD / Floppy / usb pen drives....
I still have 600GB left! lol.
No power supplied, use's power from whatever you plug it into, laptop or TV with USB like mine. Just plug it in and choose which movie to watch.
No fan, it does not get hot enough to need it's own fan and it comes with a leather case to keep it in.
About the same size as a Samsung Galaxy mobile phone.
NOT ready boost, but i didn't need that anyway.
Fast enough file transfers for me.
Very happy, just hope it never breaks!

2.0 out of 5 stars No support from Samsung 6 Dec 2011
By simonp
Verified Purchase
Do not buy this product if you need automatic backup because the software simply doesn't work. The machine looks beautiful and the hardware seems to work fine. I spent 2 days trying to make the software do automatic backups and it just doesn't work. I phoned Samsung and spoke to samsung people in Egypt, Italy and somewhere else. Nobody in Samsung supports this device. The Samsung Hard Drive website does not list this device. Eventually I spoke to Executive user support in Samsung UK. The woman I spoke to tried very hard to help me but eventually had to admit that she could not find anyone in Samsung who supports this machine. What a pity.
