4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It defrags very quickly and makes for a compact chassis look. You can even fool someone that it's an SSD (when the computer is off of course).

Cons: It is very loud, compared to your average 7200 drives. You might want some special dampeners for this one. My computer is against a wall and when it's writing, it can be heard on the other side.

Other Thoughts: It says 6 gb/s, but it actually uses SATA2 even if you put it in a SATA3 input. Other than the other mishaps, you might want to stick with a $120 SSD and a complementary 7200 drives instead of this using the the Intel SRT if you have the parts that do that.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Product

Pros: - Noticeably faster than your standard 7200 RPM Hard Drive, especially given the SATA 6.0Gb/s technology.

- 600 Gb is a big step up from the previously available models.

- Cool and stable for almost a year now.

- The best alternative to SSD available. End of story.

Cons: - Initially, I thought that the price was a bit steep, but after using this drive for nearly a year now, I can call it money well spent.

Other Thoughts: - If you can scoop this drive up for less than 299.99, do it. (As of 7/23/11)

5 out of 5 eggsNot for laptops sorry

Pros: These are great hardrives, however I dont own this particualr model BUT - Some one needs to make NEWEGG aware that they have these listed under laptop drives - they are not made for any laptops at all - the fact they are 2.5" form factor is what has them thrown off

Cons: they wont run on laptop volatges - they wont fit into a laptop.
Woul be awesome if they did

Other Thoughts: please look into this newegg - so you can list them properly.
Dont really expect you to post the comments but Please adjust these to be not listed for laptops
