    "What we will say is that, thanks to its SSHD hybrid structure, the Seagate Laptop Thin HDD booted up games faster and installed games from disc slightly faster too, in comparison to the WD Blue. If we had to recommend one, the Seagate has the slight edge in terms of performance. Thanks to it being around the same size as the original HDD, it’s easier to install, too.”

Samsung Hard Drive PCB Circuit Boards

June 10th, 2015 Comments off

Samsung Hard drives that do not spin up after the power has been supplied can be diagnosed as PCB failure. Because data recovery service is very expensive, sometimes we would prefer to swap PCB ourselves.

To find a matching replacement PCB, you should find out the PCB number which is etched on the PCB(begin with BF41-), see the following image:
