1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: Decent performance

Cons: Premature failure. Worked for 2 months, then failed completely.

Other Thoughts: Received this from Dell under warranty when then original drive in a Precision laptop stared to fail. Dell sent this drive out as a replacement, it didn't last. We got another under warranty, same model. It hasn't died yet, but we are counting the days and backing up religiously. The failure of this drive caused data loss, because Carbonite wasn't doing it's job.

2 out of 5 eggsDied in just over 9 months

Pros: This hard drive worked seamlessly for about 9.5 months.

Cons: Randomly crashed in the middle of a computer backup without any prior hiccups. The BIOS on my native laptop, nor any other computer I connected it to could not even find the hard drive.

Other Thoughts: This came pre-installed on my Sony VAIO F-Series laptop. I have had Toshiba hard drives pre-installed on other laptops before, and had similar issues with them crashing in less than a year. Thankfully, my computer was still under the manufacturer's warranty, and they replaced it with the same one, but I won't be trusting this one too much. I'll be buying a Western Digital, which I've never had issues with.

Pros: It used to work

Cons: It no longer does

5 out of 5 eggsNice quiet drive

Pros: Nice quiet drive. Came in my Toshiba laptop that I bought recently. I cannot comment on durability as I've only had it a few weeks.

Cons: Only wish Toshiba made a larger capacity 7200 rpm drive.
