    A step down from the superb Samsung Story Station line, vibrates enough to make the floor hum, April 28, 2015

    Review for: Samsung D3 5TB

    The previous Samsung Story Station line was superb. Quiet, no noticeable vibration, the 3 of them I had ran for years without issue. Even attractive in a cool retro way in my opinion.

    This Samsung D3 caused the floor under the desk to vibrate enough that the floor hummed back. It is not particularly attractive, though nor is it terribly unattractive either, if it had been quiet and not vibrated so much I would have kept it regardless.

    Some details: It stands on its side sturdily. It doesn’t have the green/blue notification lights to signal whether it was running on USB 3.0 or 2.0 like the Story Station line had.

    I’ve liked many Samsung products, including the previous Story Station external drive line, however I can’t recommend this one.

    It is plugged in 24/7 for weeks at a time. One of the four I have ordered is showing some sort of error in the Event logs. Drive itself has not failed, but will be keeping an eye on it.

    This drive failed within half a year of moderate use., December 19, 2015

    Drive started to fail after four months of use. The problems I encountered were frequent disconnects of the drive (making it unusable for media playback), complete freezing of my computer when windows could fail to write to it, and inconsistent write speeds that made transferring large amounts of data to the drive unfeasible.

    There are more reviews for this drive on other sites which show my experience is not unique, and that replacement drives are prone to the same errors. The only thing I have not experienced that others have is complete loss of all data, but I’m just not waiting long enough to experience that.
