5 out of 5 eggsLong Term Reliable - Toshiba Drive

Pros: Reliable on the long term!

Cons: None I can say - always works - just got to be to small over time ;-)

Other Thoughts: This has been in my Toshiba Laptop now since 5/2007 without a hiccup! That is 6 years! I have run out of space so will be replacing it with a 750 GB drive soon, but expect to use it for longer term storage of photos - it will go into the Safe Deposit Box with years of Photos on it! Good Drive - Hope they are still as good!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great in my Macbook

Pros: Bought this drive to replace the 80GB that came in my Macbook, and it has been working great. I now have enough space to triple boot OS X, Linux, and Vista and not have to worry (too much) about having enough space.

Cons: There really hasn't been anything negative come up... I wish it was 200GB?

Other Thoughts: Triple booting is great :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat $/GB

Pros: Quiet, works, seems to be the sweet spot for $/GB for laptop HDD.

Cons: Shipped from NJ instead of the usual CA warehouse, so took an extra day to get to me in AZ! Still, shipping was still pretty fast but I have been spoiled...

Other Thoughts: Replaced the original HDD in my wife's laptop after a nasty fall. Was planning to buy a smaller capacity drive, but decided to spend a few more bucks for way more GB's. I could not believe the range in $/GB for laptop HDD's compared to desktop...

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: I put it together with this other Newegg product
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256030
and it worked like a charm. don't forget to to format it through windows though otherwise it will not register as a drive.

Cons: I had some problems trying to initially get it into windows. Windows orignally loaded the device but never put it as a drive. I had to format the drive and then addign it adrive letter through disk management.

Other Thoughts: Good price/product ratio for this drive. Evidently works well as a PS3 harddrive upgrade as well as an external portable harddrive.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Notebook Drive

Pros: Quiet, fast, and inexpensive. What more could you want? Used in my MiniITX PC, reliable drive so far. Thankfully SATA is the same on 2.5" and 3.5" drives : )

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Built with a Morex MiniITX case, Liteon Slim DVD-CDRW combo drive, Toshiba 160GB SATA HD, Intel D201GLY2A, Corsair Value Select 1GB 533Mhz DDR2 RAM. Slight case mod for the CPU fan...

5 out of 5 eggsPlaystation 3, PS3 Upgrade

Pros: Huge upgrade from my 40 GB PS3. Cheaper than buying a 60 or 80GB PS3. More than enough room to store demo, trailers, music, etc. VERY easy to install. NEWEGG has the cheapest drives, i;ve compared many places. Fast cheap shipping. Received in 2 Days

Cons: NONE! (Its not the hard drives fault but you actually get 130 GB after formatting instead of the full 160GB)

Other Thoughts: Back uo al your data before installing. I got a system error at first, so i had to reinstall the whole new firmware again onto a FAT32 flash drive. Installing takes less that 5 Minutes.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: It's bigger that the 80GB that came with my MacBook.

Cons: None so far..

Other Thoughts: Got this to replace the stock 80GB drive in my MacBook. Very easy to swap in and out. I backed up my old drive onto an external HD using Time Machine and then loaded it back to the new drive using the Leopard CD. Worked like a charm! Haven't had any problems with temperature or noise.
