Samsung is considered one of the leading manufactures in many consumer
products, and here in MyCE most of our Samsung
reviews are based on optical disk drives (ODD).

but on a traditional spinning HDD. Our test bench will be hosting the Samsung Spinpoint F4 2TB hard drive for
some tests.

quick installation manual that has information on how to install the hard disk,
