Samsung is, by current sales figures, the biggest manufacturer of consumer electronics. Their hard drive division manufactures consumer hard drives for use in desktops, laptops and external hard drive applications.
Samsung’s range includes the Spinpoint M series for use in laptop computers, and their Spinpoint and EcoGreen F series for use in desktop and external hard drive applications.
Samsung hard drives are competitively priced and generally hardy and long lasting. Certain batches of the Spinpoint F series seem to suffer from excessive bad sectors, otherwise they are generally a stable platform.
Hard drive data recovery relating to Samsung hard drives includes:
- Logical data recovery involving repair of the file system stored on the hard drive, damaged by virus attacks, user error or hardware failure.
- Electrical data recovery involving repair or replacement of the main electrical components (PCB), damaged by static, bad power or surges, or user damage.
- Physical data recovery involving repair or replacement of the mechanical components within the hard drive internals. This includes replacement of the head stack assembly (HSA), motor spindle, or any other parts requiring repair or replacement. Damage to these components is often by wear and tear, manufacturing defects or user damage such as a drop or fall.
