5 out of 5 eggsExcellent OEM Part

Pros: Haven't had a single bad sector since I got my ASUS X401A1 laptop in 2012 as a gift. It does run hot but not overly and I sometimes run it for days at a time, online gaming mostly. Does what it should, the way it should with no problems. Also run spreadsheets w/ no hitches.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsInspiron 1545 SUCCESS! here's how..

Pros: Low price, high space replacement hard drive for a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. Paid Fourty Nine Dollars with a promo code on Aug 8 2012

Cons: The SATA power and data connecters taper oddly resulting in difficulty connecting to laptop on board receptacles.

Other Thoughts: So here is the deal with the inspirion 1545. The stock Toshiba fail 9000 drive that came with the inspiron has square tipped metal connectors on the SATA power and data tabs (the L shaped connectors). This Hitachi drive has tapered ends that terminate in a narrowing point that fades into the tip of the connector. That narrowing/depression results in it coming just short of reaching the Inspiron 1545 drive receptacle. The solution is to NOT attach the drive to the guide harness and carefully lower it in to a vertical laptop (hard drive opening up) Then you line it up and push the drive into the connectors. Then slide the drive tray in around it. You will notice the screw holes on the bottom of the laptop will reach the drive and help hold it in place. I was not able to attach the drive to the tray and get a connection.

4 out of 5 eggsIt does work in a 1545

Pros: Inexpensive, thin, runs cool

Cons: smaller size makes it a challenge in some machines

Other Thoughts: For everyone having problems installing this in a 1545, it does work, but due to the nature of the frame and the thinner drive, it takes a little finesse to get it into the machine right. What is happening is the drive is going under the connector not into it. I taped the frame to the connector end of the hard drive, stood the laptop upright with the drive slot facing up. You then slide the drive in slowly and it will make the connection. You can also take the palmrest off of the machine and guide it in visually.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Little Drive

Pros: I got this when it was on sale for $35. It's quiet, has low power consumption, runs smoothly, and so far no problems.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I initially used it for an HTPC, then for a fileserver, and then finally for the PlayStation 3. Runs great!

3 out of 5 eggsIssues with Dell 1545

Pros: Hitachi quality. Inexpensive.

Cons: Wish that I read the reviews before purchasing. Does not connect correctly to Inspiron 1545 as other reviews stated. I had to slide the drive into the computer without the tray, until it was firmly connected. I then had to slide the tray under it, and screw the drive in place on the bottom. The tray is technically not secured to the computer, but seems somewhat secure as long as you are not *trying* to remove it.
