Samsung Spinpoint T166 500GB HD501LJ
my T166 500GB story
i ordered a Samsung Spinpoint T166 500GB HD501LJ a while ago
when i got it it had read error and had clicking/noise, will send it back, and change it to a Seagate Baracuda 7200.10 500GB
if you read other reviews on the net like on newegg.com, you will see that many has the same problem, some like me got a DOA(dead on arrival) / EOA (error on arrival), looks like samsung has a seirusly bad quality control, the singel most importen part in a computer is the harddrive, thats where all the valuable data is!
update: i received a replacement and that worked fine, so must be a bad batch
