5 out of 5 eggsUpgraded on my Sony Playstation 3

Pros: Works great with the Sony Playstation 3, flawless performance.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I had a 60GB HDD before. Also it comes out to be 149GB when you put it in your PS3 and it formats it's self.

1 out of 5 eggsabout 4 months and now it died

Pros: CHEAP (COMES WITH BADNESS). It was pretty quite for 3 months, but then it started to get real hot in short time.

Cons: This is a very bad hard drive. I read other reviews and should have taken them seriously instead of looking for a low price. I lost couples of software I purchased online and my linux ISOs. I also lost some of my recent spreadsheet I am working on (thank goodness some minor updates). The irony is I was doing back up few minutes before it failed. Somehow, before I backup the rest of those big files; for some unknown short period of insanity I stopped the backup to my external harddrives and decided to reboot the computer. Since then, they are "terminated" and "wouldn't be back" anymore.

Other Thoughts: If you want to know my state of conditions right now. I AM VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY ANGRY! OTHER PEOPLE, BE WARNED YOU GET WHAT YOU PAID FOR THIS LOW CHEAP ITEM.

Do you think Hitachi will accept my item back for labor? I am still under 1 year warranty, since I bought it on 1/13/08. Newegg, are you listening to my rant? I know it's Hitachi fault but you gotta do something to stop this from happening, please. Look at the review here on this page. I am one of the victim.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Bought this for my laptop. Decent price. Good capacity. Compatible with my ThinkPad.

Cons: Seems a bit slower than the HD that came with my laptop. A little noisier too but not that noticeable. Accept when you're in a quiet room.

Other Thoughts: From experience, Lenovo ThinkPad laptops always nag if you don't use the same brand of HD that came with the laptop. That means you'll have to update the firmware and in some cases that doesn't work either.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Drive

Pros: Fit my Gateway laptop, Works as expected.

Cons: Noise. Slight annoying noise for the first few hours of use. After that it quietend down and you can not hear it. Been using it for a month no more noise.

Other Thoughts: Got to upgrade my Gateway laptop. Was real supprised on ease of instalation. Fit perfectley. Partitioned and formated NTFS Installed VISTA. VISTA says it is 150gb. Bios says 160gb. This is my 5th HD to install under VISTA. Everyone has lost 10gb of space.
