5 out of 5 eggsNew life to old machine

Pros: For less than $100 you can give new life to an aging machine. I used this 250GB drive to replace the old 20GB in a Pentium 4 machine.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsEasy Install in Vista

Pros: Easy install, runs quiet. Attached to IDE/SATA expansion card with ribbon cable on hand. Not a boot drive so no need to go SATA with extra cable expense. So far so good

Cons: None so far. Should have gone with the 320 drive for a few dollars more.

Other Thoughts: My daughter's computer filled up with i-Tunes and recorded television. Two minutes to install plus ten minutes to move the i-Tunes folder and the DVR destination file, problem solved. Must give credit to Microsoft here: for all of Vista's faults, hard drive installation is really straightforward.
