    Its an old model thats why its so cheap :) it has been replaced by the F3EG. The F3EG actually has some very good performance results, its actually faster than many mainstream drives from other companies!

    When I think 1TB I think storage, not performance. I guess my question would be, is it a dependable drive. I'll go read some reviews, could use a second TB drive or might grab 4 for a server.

    The Samsung drives are reliable, they're my HDD of choice. The HD103SJ is great for a system drive, but for drives that you just have media on the Samsung ecogreen's are fine. They're optimised for power saving, not performance.
