3TB D3 Samsung, worked flakily for a few months...
on 4 February 2014
...then gave up the ghost. Simply won't mount. For a few months, it would drop a connection (despite being plugged in!) So I bought a new USB3.0 cable, which seemed to solve the problem for a few weeks. Then one day it suddenly would not mount at all. Tried it a few times each day, then it mounted!!! Then it unmounted, just as I was trying to salvage stuff from it.
Really, really annoying. I have about 8 of the 1TB versions and they're REALLY GOOD. I wish I'd bought 3 of those instead of this. Amazon are sending me a replacement, but based on the rest of the customer complaints on here (my problem was with the 3TB model, which is mains powered) I have no confidence in the unit and shan't be trusting it for anything.
