    Samsung seems to be company-to-recommend for almost anything.. RAM, notebooks, hard drives, phones, etc. Real shame they aren't doing power supplies

    Yeah, Samsung's moved up in the market. They used to be where LG is now, making stuff that looked good, but was unreliable as heck.

    Just wish they hadn't gone and sold their hard drive division to Seagate.

    I thought WD had bought them..?
    Hmm... Either way, they should've stayed independent.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Western Digital did the smart move and is in the process of buying Hitachi right now (since WD has almost no Server / Workstation presence, that'll be a huge boost to their business potential.)

    Though, Samsung's phone / tablet division still has a long way to go before I'd consider their products again. First generation Galaxy devices were unreliable and poorly built.

    Seagate finalized the deal with Samsung at the end of last year (in December.)

    I don't know if Western Digital has managed to finalize their deal with Hitachi yet, but as far as I'm aware of, no legal blocks are stopping them. (They announced a month or two after Seagate though, so it's obviously going to take longer to get the deal through as well. That's just natural.)

    It was on sale. The Samsung I really wanted wasn't on sale. Limited funds made the decision for me.

    I had a Samsung Galaxy and the actual build quality (the feel in my hand, the click you'd get when you slide out the keyboard, etc.) felt really good. But the phone itself was HORRIBLY unstable. I replaced it with an HTC, which feels cheaper, but always works.

    I still have a Galaxy S phone, Fascinate to be exact, it still has it's quirks with the OS (the gallery freezes when you try to delete 4 or 5 pictures at a time or very specific pictures, and it becomes horribly slow and freezes when you try to unmount the SD card, etc...) but the build quality is very good. Solid and has survived many crash landings with hardly a scuff. At least the screen doesn't crack every 2 seconds. *COUGH*...apple.
