5 out of 5 eggsTimes change

Pros: -Four years as my PS3 hard drive and still going strong.

Cons: See below

Other Thoughts: Why are you reading these reviews to an obsolete, out of stock hard drive? :) Anyway, it's funny how fast things change in the computer world. I bought this drive in March of 2008, and paid $175. In September of 2012 I paid just $13 more for a 256GB, SATA III SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsFast Drive

Pros: Pretty fast. Average sequential read is around 55-60MB/s and average sequential write is about 50-55MB/s. Runs cool at around 36-43C depending on load. Vibration and sound is insignificant even under load. Have been using for 24 hours/day for everyday and almost a year now. Still no problem.

Cons: Wished it had SATA 3.0Gb/s instead.

Other Thoughts: Quality drive but better drives are already in the market ever since I bought this.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: none

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: was wondering if user t3t4 had service pack 2 installed the is a barrier there. after installing sp2 you will have a chunk of unpatitioned space, or get a copy of xp with sp2 already installed and reload

4 out of 5 eggsNice drive and FAST to boot!

Pros: It's fast, it's quiet, it's thermally efficient! Low heat and awesome speed is why I like it, and this price is dam hard to beat for that kind of performance. Mikey likes it!

Cons: I installed this into a Lenovo R61i laptop which replaced a failed WD 80g 5400rpm drive. The problem I see, it's nowhere near 200 gigs of capacity, it's actually 127 gigs as recognized by windows. Perhaps I should have installed windows in compatible mode via the BOIS, or maybe that has nothing to do with it. I don't know for sure, but I have installed many drives in many computers and have never seen this kind of loss once XP is fully installed. I'm shocked and irritated about this issue, but there you go, that's the worst I can say about this drive thus far.

Other Thoughts: I wish Windows would calculate hard drive capacity the same way hard drive manufacturers do, or vis/versa! If I had it to do over again, I would have done a little more home work. Time was an issue since this was a customers laptop I was working on, bang for the buck is what he wanted so I found my top picks and gave the customer the choice! This drive is what he chose, he's happy and so am I. But knowing now what I didn't know then, I might have pushed for something else. Maybe not, since this is a performer drive, but all that lost capacity keeps me up at night if you know what I mean.

2 out of 5 eggsOkay Drive

Pros: Worked Great for 18 months.

Cons: Died a terrible death after initiating a large file transfer.

Other Thoughts: It ran its course well but I would have hoped for more than 18 months from this drive.

4 out of 5 eggsFast but noisy

Pros: -Fast (clear real world performance gains on MBP 3,1 in caching Finder views and sustained transfers)

Cons: -Noisy (I am generally not sensitive to computer noises, so I was surprised by how noisy this drive was compared to the 5400 RPM drive that it replaced. It continues to annoy me.)

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet, cheap

Cons: not fast enough

Other Thoughts: a good choice if you want to have higher speed than 5400rpm and don't want to pay much

3 out of 5 eggsapparent 8-month wonder

Pros: This was a great macbook upgrade, and made a noticable difference in startup and application load times. I did not notice any obvious temperature increase, and istat only recorded a couple degrees over the stock 80g 5400.

Cons: Drive is dead, and DiskWarrior reports hardware failures. It took multiple reboots and lots of patience for DW to even mount the disk. I need to obtain another drive to backup my data because this one is too far gone, but I'm not sure that I even want to rely on the RMA if, as other reviewers are reporting, it too will fail in another 8 months.

Other Thoughts: Bought this in February, and it's been on several cross-country flights and long drives, but well protected. Death snuck up after the laptop spent a week parked on my desk running nzbDrop (heavy disk i/o), so unless this was a latent problem that finally blew up, it would appear that the disk finally couldn't handle heavy use over an extended period of time. Perhaps it's a better choice for business and casual users.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for PS3

Pros: Faster than stock
Much more space that stock
Fairly quiet

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I think this is as much space as you can get for a 2.5" drive. It does make loading and other operations faster on the PS3. Plenty of room now as well. Noise level is about the same if not less. The fans are louder.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 7200 RPM, 200GB. Was the fastest and largest drive on the market when I bought it about a year ago

Cons: The hard disk crashed after about 6 months of use

Other Thoughts: This was the second Hitachi hard disk that crashed for no apparent reason in the last year. Granted I do take my laptop with me everywhere, but I am not very rough on my equipment
