1 out of 5 eggsDidn't even last a year

Pros: none really

Cons: this drive came factory installed in my asus vivobook s400ca and it only lasted 8 months before it completely cratered - the entrie drive and even recovery partitions are unreadable, can't even salvage a single file off it.

Other Thoughts: if you get this drive make sure you keep your data backed up

1 out of 5 eggsLoud Clicking Sounds - No SMART Warinings

Pros: Stays somewhat cool

Cons: Drive included with an HP (Hewlett Packard) laptop. Within 1 hour of owning the HP laptop, the drive makes loud clicking sound. I can hear the heads constantly resetting. Checked the S.M.A.R.T. drive values, and they are all normal, which is very concerning. Clearly, the drive is failing, but the SMART system is not detecting the problems.

Other Thoughts: Have to return HP laptop because drive is making loud clicking sounds.

1 out of 5 eggsSo SSSSLLLLOOOWWWW

Pros: 500 GB Capacity

Cons: This drive is so slow. The Acer Aspire V5 is a fair notebook but the drive is so slow. I bought this guy as my notebook for meetings and travel because it is lite but I hate using it because of the bottleneck at the drive level. I have updated all firmware that I can find. Hitachi sold to Western Digital so that is my next check. Looking to upgrade to SSD.

2 out of 5 eggsDies after a year

Pros: Somewhat fast?

Cons: I've gone through 2 of these so far, with a third on its way (Warranty is paying for them). One of the most unreliable Hard drives out there, for they die after 12 months exact whether you use it or not. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Other Thoughts: If you are buying this for an non-warranted repair, don't do it. Find a better 7mm drive.

2 out of 5 eggsDied after one year

Pros: Fast, quiet, and until now absolutely no complain about this hard disk. Had it inside the Asus Q200E we bought a little bit more than 1 year ago, brought the netbook everywhere and never had any problem with the HDD.

Cons: The disk is dead, the computer doesn't even see it anymore, there is no way to access it.
Manufacturing date on the disk is 02SEP12. It died on Sunday., January 5th, 2014. A little bit more than one year.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent Drive - Works fine

Pros: works as expected. I purchased this to replace a failed SANDISK SSD that died from hibernation/sleeping.

I had a backup image from the recent swap, so it was easy to put this in and it worked.

* Normal Laptop HDD speeds
* Normal or less heat than like drives
* No noticeable sounds when accessing drives (original drive was much louder)
* Great price when caught on sale at $70
* Good Bang for buck per GB
* Shipped in small box within Large Box

Cons: Price went back up after sale :)

Other Thoughts: If you need a drive and want space, this will work just fine.
