    Story Station is a pretty fancy name for an external hard drive. So how does Samsung go about justifying such a wordy title? Well, most of the justification is plain old marketing blah blah, using buzz words such as "upload" in place of "copying files" and "jog dial" in place of "dimmer switch". The aforementioned switch is the only control on the box and serves the dual purpose of turning the power on and off and varying the intensity of the power on light located under the front edge of the enclosure (from a little too bright to "lights up the whole room" bright).

    So, let's put the overzealous marketing aside and have a look at what you actually get.

    The enclosure itself is simple and sturdy in its construction, but it would be a big leap to call it attractive. The nicest visual feature, the brushed aluminium cover, has a rather unfortunate brownish colour, which is very unflattering to say the least. At the time of writing the image displayed on Amazon is not a Story Station, I'd advise looking on Samsung's website to see what it really looks like.

    Controls and connections are kept to the strict minimum, with the power switch on the front panel, while the back panel only has the power inlet and a mini-USB socket. The underside has open vents to allow cooling air to circulate, while the aluminium cover dissipates heat. There is no fan or other form of active cooling which would add noise. By curiosity I opened the enclosure and had a look inside. The drive is held very securely, but is mounted to the enclosure using rubberised blocks to help reduce vibration and noise whilst operating. My only grievance is that the drive can only be placed horizontally, not vertically, so it takes up a little more space on a desk than I would like.

    BEWARE - AMAZON HAVE NOW TIED UP THIS REVIEW WITH THE WRONG PRODUCT

    see link below to the product this refers to the story 1tb external HDD

    In order to be fair to Samsung I should point out that this review is written at a point of frustration - I can't actually get this beautiful hard drive to work any more! So here is my tale of woe so far - hope this is helpful to other consumers in avoiding my mistake. And if you have any helpful suggestions don't hesitate to leave a comment.

    Firstly the product. The current picture on the Amazon site is wrong. If you google it you will soon see what it actually looks like and it's very fetching. Mostly gunmetal housing - with a story logo on the front, and best of all a rotary switch which turns it on and off and varies the intensity of the white led which strobes away when the disk is in action. At full brightness it can put on quite a show. The power brick which goes with it is about as small as I have seen. On the HDD it's mini usb at the back - quite unusual in my experience - but at least it's a decent length. The disk is designed to sit flat - with the heat being dispersed underneath. It looks as though it's been designed to stack - but not having two I can't be certain, and I would think the heat dispersal would not recommend this.

    Connection was easy - as you would expect. I connected to a PC running XP - it was found and installed quickly. The software is the standard Samsung products of back up and password protected zones. Transfer and read speeds are very good - the specs suggest that they would be near the top of the league for 1tb HDD. Certainly when I compared to a 1TB buffalo and a 500 gig `elements' the Samsung was equal if not better.

    Whoever wrote the product information obviously thought they were writing about a very sexy gadget and clearly may have lost sight of the fact that this is an external hard drive. 'A simple but classical jog dial', minimalist design, brished metal.... It is really selling itself on it's looks - and how ironic it is that when this arrived in a huge box, the product bore no resemblance to the picture on the Amazon Website.

    I really thought this was going to be a portable external hard drive. The picture is of a maroon pocket sized drive. The reality is a black, brushed metal, mains powered external hard drive. Looking back at the Amazon page, the only reference to this being mains powered is the fact that, in the 'what's in the box' section, it does specify a Main Adapter as included. It does say that you simply have to plug it in and away you go but I assumed that this meant plug in the USB lead.

    I am quite adept with my computer but I do not know about all the detailed technical angles here (which is no bad thing for a review I feel). My 5 year old Western Digital External hard drive (250GB) was full so this seemed like a good option.

    First of all, as expected, it was very straightforward to set up. Real plug and play. The backup software seems very good. Has run twice and I assume has backed up what I have asked. The SECRET software looks nice but having had a bad experience with a SandDisk encryption system on a keyring flash disk when I lost a whole stack of vital data, I am a bit nervous to have an area on a disk which I cannot back up so I am leaving this for now.

    Compared to my old Western Digital and the Seagate FreeAgent 500GB drive I have at work, the Samsung is much quicker to get going that the others.
