Solved Is samsung spinpoint 1TB 2.5" drive any good? Tags: Western Digital Spinpoint Samsung Seagate Components Product Last response: May 2, 2012 2:34 PM in Components Share builder2501 May 1, 2012 12:30:33 PM As the title says... Is the Samsung spinpoint 1TB 2.5" drive any good? I've always gone WD or Seagate, I've never used a Samsung drive. I saw this on Newegg... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Pretty cheap. Does anyone know anything about these drives? Or should I simply skip it and shell out the extra money for a WD? I would go with Seagate, but I can't find a 1TB one. I looked here... http://www.seagate.com/internal-hard-drives/laptop-hard... It seems Seagate only sells 750 GB.

I actually found a WD WD10JPVT 1TB drive on Ebay for a similar price, I usually don't buy from Ebay but I'll risk it since the seller accepts returns and I have a paypal credit.
