1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 5 months

Pros: Worked for 5 months?

Cons: Failed after only 5 months. This was a warranty replace for another HDD that failed after about 16 months. I'm getting a little annoyed...

Other Thoughts: This was a warranty replacement drive (a cheaper alternative to the drive which I orginally purchased) and it failed after 5 months, I guess I'll RMA it again.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid HDD's

Pros: These are great drives. I have had 2 of them for over a year, no problems.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: At the time a pair of these was all I could afford for a desktop hard drive. I put them in raid 1 and haven't had a need to change them out for different speed drives b/c they work brilliantly.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Hard Drive

Pros: Its a nice small, cheap hard drive. Works well.

Cons: Relatively slow (compared to SATA III or SSD), but again thats relative. If you just need some extra storage where speed doesn't matter (media/movies/music) its great.

5 out of 5 eggsnice 500gb 2.5 HDD for the price

Pros: fast drive even at 5400RPM..got here supper fast, no firmware or compatibility problems.was a replacement for my core 2 duo hp gv6775us media laptop that has been good to me for years.

Cons: could be a little cheaper for a 500gb since 1tb are the standard nowadays but i think it was on sale for 50+ dollars 49 dollars should be going sale price for 2.5 or 3.5 500gb drives considering they are sata II but not much of a differance.

Other Thoughts: good economic option to WD drives. Hitatchi are very similar in quality and are owned by WD i believe.

1 out of 5 eggsSimply died

Pros: Plenty of storage and faster than my previous drive.

Cons: After 4 months in my laptop, which was rarely used, it simply stopped working.

Other Thoughts: I had dusted it off to use at my mom's place today to put videos onto an SD card for her Wii. It ran fine for a while, but it had been unplugged and apparently the battery hadn't charged, because it died. I rebooted and it would start loading Windows, then go to BSOD, it did this a few times, so I tried Startup Recovery, which restarted the system several times and was unsuccessful. Well, I took my laptop home, reinstalled Windows, got the drivers installed and restarted a couple times. Well, the last restart, it went back to Startup Recovery automatically. It couldn't repair the problem, so I tried installing Windows again, started the installation, then after the first reboot during installation my computer said it couldn't access the hard drive.

I would like to RMA this drive, but have never done it before. Would a HGST or Newegg representative be willing to help me?

1 out of 5 eggsFailed three months later

Pros: Good price, Fast shipping, quick install. Everything that a laptop hard drive should be, almost.

Cons: Three months after getting the drive the computer wouldn't boot. Pulled the drive and ran a Check Disk. Checkdisk showed unreadable sectors. Ran HDDTune and there were bad blocks.

Other Thoughts: I will attempt to RMA the drive today. It is frustrating to have down time on the only laptop in the house during school. Especially when the Hard drive is so new.
