higher than average failure rate
This review is from: Hitachi GST Travelstar 5K160 HTS541612J9SA00 (0A28843) 120GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 2.5" Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive
Pros: low power consumption
Cons: I work for a computer OEM. We initially used this drive in our portable products. Much higher failure rate than the Hitachi 5K100 (be it PATA) or 5K250 or 5K320 series drives. The drive winds up not recognized by the bios.
Other Thoughts: avoid the 5K160 series and go with the newer 5K250 or 5K320 series Hitachi drives
