4 out of 5 eggsExcellent price hard drive

Pros: Get the most bang for you buck with this large than normal laptop hard drive.

Cons: Not really a big issue but the hard drive does make noise when it's accessing information. For me the size and price outweight the hard drive noise. The noise is the only reason i'd give it 4 and not 5 stars.

Other Thoughts: I just needed a new laptop hard drive and wanted the most space for my money since my 80gig was maxed out. This gives me the extra space i wanted for the least amount of $$.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Compact

Pros: Very small, I used it to make a cheap homemade external hard drive.

Cons: Wrapped in anti-static foil, and then a 10" diameter bunch of big-bubble bubble wrap. I guess it was okay...

Other Thoughts: I had some trouble formatting it, but got it in ten minutes making it a workable network drive. After formatting, it held 149GB.

4 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good

Pros: Put it in, installed vista, everything is working well.

It's not perfectly silent, but it is extremely quiet. I never think about the sound, and I'm easily annoyed by such things.

Cons: None so far, I'll let you know if it ever crashes.

Other Thoughts: Only had it for a little while.

5 out of 5 eggsGood hard drive

Pros: I put this hard drive in my ps3. Its cheep memory in a quality hard drive by a quality brand. Just slipped right in and worked. The drive is fairly quiet and fast.

Cons: If you listen carefully it does make the average scratching noise most hard drives make but its not really a con.

Other Thoughts: For those who may buy this for your PS3, be careful not to strip the screws on the hard drive holder. This is a fairly common problem and can render the tray useless. I am sure this drive will be perfectly fine for laptops.
