3 out of 5 eggsBetter Options R Available

Pros: Faster than a 5400rpm drive.Faster than a 7200rpm drive
For the price i got it at,you take a chance if it goes up in a year oh well,live and learn...but BACKUP!
I do notice a subtle speed increase the more it is used.
My WEI gets a 6.0 !!

Cons: Runs louder-hotter than any newer 7200 5400 &ssd.
The noise it makes is that all familiar slight metal grinding noise.Seatools says its perfect...but i just know a lemon when i hear one.Keeps my lap nice and warm when running benchmarks.

Other Thoughts: I bought the refurb oem drive and while it not a brand new retail box ,it sure should perform as such.
The drive starts off as fast as a 7200 major brand drive as far as speed and it does indeed get quicker after several boots.Is it ssd quick,not really,not even close.But does run circles around these cheap quiet and cool 5400 rpm models that oem's love to put in their laptops now.

4 out of 5 eggsMuch needed boost

Pros: Fast boot up time, easy to install, quick setup.

Cons: Noise

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a failed drive in my HP dv7t-4100 laptop. I was not able to save any information from my old drive to do a clone/transfer, but had backed up fairly recently, so just had to reinstall Win7 and a few other various programs.
My old boot time was over 2 minutes long (due to old hard drive), but with this drive it is now less than 15 seconds! When the laptop was new, the bootup time was about 45 seconds, so I am very pleased with the response time this has given me.
I was not able to run any sort of testing program, but the boot speed and speed at what the programs I mainly use were greatly increased!
The only negative that I have with the hard drive is the noise. It's not too loud, but it is a lot louder when "working" than I am used to. It only gets loud every once in a while, so not too bothersome, but it was something that I did notice.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Fast Drive

Pros: I can boot into Win7 64bit pro in under 20 seconds - The fact is you'll notice better boot speeds and quicker disk access with new controllers and newer chip sets - Also do a firmware update -

Cons: none really - does what it is supposed to do

Other Thoughts: I use this on an i72630qm ASUS laptop and it is pretty quik - every day operation is very good - as mentioned earlier seagate has a firmware update app - that does everything for you... I will buy these when they goto $89. or lower on shell shocker days - I will put these in all my computers - and of corse Newegg is awesome

3 out of 5 eggsGood outweighs the bad

Pros: Much faster than magnets, no special software needed, battery life consistent with other 7200 rpm drives, quiet as a mouse.

Cons: Nowhere near as fast as a true SSD, somewhat flighty (see below), boot time only likely to be improved if you reboot often.

Other Thoughts: Installed for a year in a mid-2010 17" MBP, dual boot with Win7 32 bit. For first 3 months I had unusual and intermittent issues on boot into either OS, culminating in a nasty file system failure under Snow Leopard. At this point I completely rebuilt the partition on top of a new copy of SL and Win7 (now 64 bit) and it's been rock solid ever since, even after the Lion transition. My advice? Don't clone the drive, use clean everything, modern OS and shut down properly. Not for amateurs.

2 out of 5 eggsAnother dead one

Pros: It worked well for three months in my Thinkpad.

Cons: After 3 months started clicking instead of resuming from sleep, followed a day later by failing to find the operating system every other time I try to boot it. Had to replace it as I actually need my PC to be working - no idea how good Seagate's support is yet, and I doubt I'll trust any replacement they send.

Other Thoughts: I should have paid more attention to the poor reliability record of the Momentus XT before I bought it. Thought it could never happen to me. Yeah, right.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive!

Pros: This is a great drive. I replaced a old smaller drive in my MacBook with this drive and it is fantastic! I never knew my Mac was so fast! This drive is very fast and stable, I would recommend this drive to anyone!

Cons: Sometime it will make a funny noise, but not often and its not very noticeable.
