Rated 4 out of 5 by timboo Excellent drive forget software
Drive comes with USB 3 cable, which as per previous comment seems to be Samsung specific but no real issue for me.
No CD with the drive as software already installed on the drive.
After reading reviews for 1TB drives this was the one as I wasn't keen on the Seagate version or Toshiba.
I bought the drive to do a mirror backup copy from my RAID 1 containing music and pics so encryption wasn't really needed. After installing the software the backup worked with ease however the software is a tad awkward you never really feel in control and 100% confident with what is going on.
After creating a backup I tried to locate all of the files, the software lists them but to actually view files you would need to restore them somewhere, which is somewhat annoying. The software is probably more suited for a system image rather than your precious backup files in my opinion.
I decided to start a fresh and format the drive....... Big mistake the software isn't embedded in a different partition so be warned it will wipe your drive clean, which happened to me.
In the end I found the deletion a blessing in disguise. I decided to replace the Samsung software with NTI shadow 5 costing just over £10.00 I've paired it up with the drive and happy now, as it does everything I initially wanted.
The drive itself is compact and has a blue coloured LED on the rear flashing when being accessed. No external power required.
Overall I'm happy with the drive however had to mark it down for the bundled software as it really lets the product down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scubasteve647604 Excellent product at great price
Bought this Samsung 1TB hard drive after reading reviews. I already owned another Samsung hard drive and have no issue with either. The second hard drive was purchased to use as a time capsule for my Mac mini.
Extremely happy with product and I would like to add a very quick delivery from scan uk.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gravelrash It Works but...
Samsung have decided to invent another socket! It may plug into your standard USB3 interface at your computer end but the opposite end of the lead is another variation on a already over populated list of connection types.
If you lose or break this lead you won't just be able to go grab another lead from your bulging collection.
Well out of order.
