4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: What can I say... It's a hard drive. It still hasn't died, and I haven't had any issues with it. Not the fastest, but I just needed extra capacity in my laptop. It does seem pretty quiet, though, which is nice.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsDecent, low cost laptop drive

Pros: Quiet. Laptops fan made more sound. Cant hear the drive seeking data. Seems to run cool.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works. Inexpensive.

Cons: Isn't free.

Other Thoughts: You can't go wrong with a Seagate drive. I purchased this drive to replace a failing Hitachi drive in a laptop.

1 out of 5 eggsONLY WESTERN DIGITAL FROM NOW ON

Pros: NONE, DIE AFTER 9 MONTHS

Cons: RMA the drive, they received it (tracked)5/16/2011, and just today they open it. I call last week 5/19 and was told they will send out a replacement drive tht day. Here today I get an email saying they received the drive today 5/23 and have no idea when I will get a replacement drive. This use to be a decent company but now very very slow and lie to the customer!

Other Thoughts: I sent in a Western Drive in 2 weeks before this drive and received the replacement in 5 days. NO MORE SEAGATES, LYING TO ME WAS THE LAST STRAW!

5 out of 5 eggsSeagate 160GB Notebook Drive

Pros: Good price, good performance, plenty of space for most notebooks, runs cool and reliable.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: These are great upgrades for slightly older laptops that came with 40, 60 or 80GB SATA drives.
I've had a few of these fail on my job as a PC support technician, but it was always due to user abuse.
While not up to the standards of high-performance gaming notebook users, these are great replacement/upgrade drives for everyday use in standard laptops.

5 out of 5 eggsCompatible with HP Compaq Presario

Pros: Low price

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Installed into HP Compaq Presario V6444us (6400) with no problems at all. My old Hard Drive died and wouldn't allow me to install windows onto the laptop, it would get stuck at Copying Files...(%0). I put this Hard Drive in and it fixed the problem.

Note for non-tech Compaq Presario users: You have to take the hard drive case AND the front plug off the old hard drive. The plug has a lot of gold teeth on it and it allows the Hard Drive to be usable on the Compaq. Good luck!
