5 out of 5 eggsUsed in PS3s

Pros: This is the drive that came in my PS3. I can't hear it over my PS3's fans- even when they're on low.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Other Thoughts: I'm gonna put a 320gig HDD in my PS3 soon, so I figure I'm gonna buy an external enclosure for this one and use it as a portable HD.
I can't wait. ;)

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Installed this as a replacement for a damaged 100GB notebook drive on a Sony VAIO. Seagate is a reliable brand - It worked great however...

Cons: ... it was a bit noisy.

Other Thoughts: Quick shipping from New Egg!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product!

Pros: Bought this drive to use as a back-up using my Apricorn Easy Gig II. Very dependable and quiet hard drive. You cannot go wrong with Seagate.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Could have purchased a larger hard drive, but didn't have to because of the compression used while making back-up's.

1 out of 5 eggsBuilder

Pros: can't say there is any pros.

Cons: Purchased 2 of these Drives and the first one died while formatting. and the second one died 6 days later.
I sent the first one back for another one and when the second one died I asked for refund. Will let you know what the out come is on it.

Other Thoughts: It looks like these drive are not going to have a very good track record.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked fine

Pros: Thus far, this has worked fine. Speed, 39 mb/s with only the operating system on the drive. With the drive half full, it still scores 35 mb/s @ pcpitstop. They rate the drive at 160% faster than similar systems in their data base of over 2,000 tests.

Cons: It's not whisper quiet like Seagate's line of 5400/7200 rpm desktop drives. It's not noisy by any standard, but it's audible.

Other Thoughts: I used this in my first laptop purchase. I didn’t care for Vista as it was making my first laptop crawl. I purchased this, installed XP Home, and it made a world of difference. Coming from a long line of desktops, and using Seagate drives exclusively, with exception to my gaming desktops that use Raptors in RAID. I found the notebook drive to be noisy. It’s not loud like a Raptor, but it’s still audible. I’m used to the whisper quiet operation of Seagate’s line of desktop drives. I’ve always found Seagates to be extremely reliable. While they may not always be the fastest, they’re reliable; moreover, the difference in speed in comparatively equal drives is so miniscule that it’s not humanly possible to notice the difference.

Bear in mind, I have absolutely no experience with notebooks. This is my first one. I hope that my review was helpful to you, bolillo_loco

2 out of 5 eggswrong hard drive

Pros: It works

Cons: I bought this hard drive to break it open and swap the disk out with my old one to recover my data, but when it got here it was the wrong part number. i needed my pc so i kept it anyway but it is just like the same piece of Junk that was in here before. still waiting on my 120g that i ordered at the same time over a month ago....

Other Thoughts: slow overpriced junk, if your not needing it for some special purpose, don't buy it

1 out of 5 eggsTotal BUST!

Pros: Initially worked like a champ.

Cons: Crashed after 5 weeks! Had to use Seagate return process which was very slow compared to NEWEGG. I'm going to stay away from Seagate from now on!

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Could not use the drive to find any "Pros".

Cons: Drive was DOA.

Time and money wasted for shipping of a dead drive - no replacements in stock.

Other Thoughts: I have a 160GB version of this Seagate drive that came with my Inspiron 1720 and it has not given me any problems (yet?).

I am considering other brands now.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Shipping time was adequate. drive was carefully package in bubble wrap. Drive is very quiet, fit my Dell 1505

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Great price, great product. I download the DiscWizard from Seagate and it restored the image of my other drive(from another external HD) easily.
