5 out of 5 eggsFast, reliable hard drive

Pros: A very snappy drive for only being 5400 RPM. Also very reliable. 2 years in my laptop and still going strong.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Macbook 1,1 Intel running Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

Pros: none really

Cons: High failure rate

Other Thoughts: I purchased a new Dell laptop in March of 2011 that came with this HD installed. Within 6 months it failed and had to be replaced. It was replaced with another Blue Scorpio HD and failed yet again less than a year after replacement.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet and fast

Cons: Short life, if any.

Other Thoughts: A relative bought a new Dell laptop Christmas of 2010. This drive came in that laptop. The drive became non-functional a little more than six months after the laptop was purchased. I bought the exact same drive from Newegg, and the new drive was defective on arrival. I sent that drive back and requested a replacement of the exact same model. Now, about another six months later, I am replacing the drive again. So, to summarize, I've been through three hard drives of this make and model. Coincidence that my luck has been bad? Maybe, but I won't buy this model again.

2 out of 5 eggsClicking

Pros: Can't argue with the price.

Cons: This drive came with my Gateway netbook. It's worked great for the past 2 years but now it's starting to make a clicking noise and I'm afraid it's about to die. Looking for a replacement drive now.

Other Thoughts: Used this to replace an 80 GB hdd in a friends' Gateway Laptop. The Hitachi hdd that came with it had a lot of bad sectors & failed the Hitachi disc check utility. Reloaded Windows Vista and all is well.
