1 out of 5 eggsPork Chop

Pros: Hard to think of anything positive on this one!!

Cons: I purchased a Sony Vaio in April of 2010. From the start this hard drive had problems. I was using Windows 7 Ultimate with major boot up problems. Windows would go into system repair mode. Unable to work around all the bad sectors. Also I was unable to backup my Vaio with Norton Ghost and Windows System Image!! This hard drive had problems right out of the package from Sony.

Other Thoughts: Where were all the QA people at Toshiba and Sony? When you send a 500 GB hard drive out new, where are all the QA checks that should have caught this. Now over 1 1/2 years later, Western Digtial takes over!!! I fail to understand how bad product gets shipped in new pc laptops!!!

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong!!

Pros: Not a single problem with hard drive. It's stood up to 6+ reformats and different OS installs and multiple partitioning....I've been playing around with different versions of linux and dual booting setups.

And it works flawlessly from my old laptop to my new laptop

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: wish money grew off trees.....Oh wait it does sorta but anyways still a bargain

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well but...

Pros: Fast transfer rate; lots of space

Cons: I use this drive with an enclosure kit as an external drive. I do a lot of file transferring. A month ago, I started getting disk errors. I scanned it several times and sure enough there were bad sectors. It's not completely unusable but it causes many controller errors. I've requested an RMA from the manufacturer and am awaiting a replacement drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade drive

Pros: Bought this 8/2010 to upgrade my MacBook hard drive. Runs at 31 degrees according to iStat Pro, which I think is relatively cool. Quiet.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This is my 2nd Toshiba upgrade HD, I'm thinking of getting another for a Mac mini.

1 out of 5 eggsToshiba MK5065GSX 500GB Bites!!!

Pros: Purchased Toshiba MK5065GSX 500GB Internal Notebook Hard Drive from Newegg.com on 5/26/10 to replace the original Toshiba 250GB Notebook Hard Drive that came with my Apple Mac Book. Everything seemed fine at first.

Cons: By mid-August 2010 my Toshiba MK5065GSX 500GB Internal Notebook Hard Drive started to make a crackling noise as the laser attempted to retrieve data from the cylinders. Any software application I was currently running would freeze up, requiring a forced quit. My Apple-MS Office applications failed to launch. Within a week, my hard drive failed.

My attempt to resolve the matter with Newegg, Service Net, and Toshiba customer service and tech support through various telephone numbers {510-651-6798, 800-618-4444, 866-257-8610, and 866-257-9193} resulted in constant phone static only to be bounced around to different departments and locations with no resolution in sight.

Other Thoughts: Give me my money back. I will no longer put low-quality Toshiba products into my Apple laptop.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: cheap drive, compare to other brands

Cons: It failed when i tried to clone the drive. When I used BT Magic software to format it, it gave error #105. Can't use it. It's the way back to newegg.com

5 out of 5 eggsGreat replacement HD

Pros: Let me say that I purchased the TOSHIBA MK5055GSX 500GB in June 2009 and I've never had a problem with it. I used it to replace a 250GB Hitachi HD that came with my Gateway M-6848. I was able to clone my old HD ( I used acronis software) right onto the new toshiba HD, placed it in mt laptop and it has since worked flawlessly. I take my laptop everywhere with me almost daily and constantly banging it. I even took it to Jamaica for vacation and after all the mileage and movement no issues. It was a little quiter than my original Hitachi.

Cons: I wished it was 7200rpm.
Not a con but now it's half the price I paid since June 2009 but that's how technology pricing usually works. Soon 1TB will be $50.

Other Thoughts: I do realize that the TOSHIBA MK5055GSX 500GB is a slightly different number from the TOSHIBA MK5065GSX 500GB but they are basically the same.

5 out of 5 eggsToshiba 500 GB Hard Drive

Pros: Very quiet and very durable drive. I dropped it, about 3 feet, onto carpet without any issues. Installed in a Dell Inspiron E1705 running Windows 7, installed the OS without a problem. Dual boots Ubuntu Linux and Windows 7 with no problems, took the NTFS and ext4 formatting without incident.

Cons: Heats up quickly and makes the case quite hot to the touch, but that's not enough to discourage a 5-egg Rating.
