5 out of 5 eggsWorks great decent price

Pros: Used it to "upgrade" a COMPAQ laptop with Vista Home and a lot of bloatware. Popped in this drive and did a clean install of XP Pro some months back and no problems since. This system gets daily use by several family members so the drive gets a workout.

Cons: It's only 5400 RPM and SATA I (1.5 GB/s versus 3.0 GB/s) but for the notebook I didn't care as power consumption and heat generation were more of a worry.

Other Thoughts: 500 GB notebook drives are the sweet spot on a GB/$ basis (May 09). This drive is just under 5 GB/$ while the cheapest 500 GB is 5.5 GB/$. However if you don't need the space why spend the extra $25.

5 out of 5 eggsgood, cheap laptop hard drive

Pros: * Large cache size
* Cheap
* Good capacity

Cons: * None

Other Thoughts: This is my second Toshiba laptop HD in 2 years. I have a 200 GB in an external USB enclosure for my backup files. So far so good for both drives.

The 320 GB HD replaced a 2 year old 80 GB Seagate in my HP NC8430. I popped out my 200 GB HD from its enclosure to format the 320 GB in Win XP. There were no problems recognizing it. After formatting it, I then replaced my 80 GB HD. My laptop's recovery disk had no problems reformatting and installing a fresh copy of Windows XP.

I don't notice the HD's noise because my laptop is already noisy. The ATI X1600 is a big power consumer so the heat is terrible. As a result, my laptop's fan is always on.

My laptop now has a fresh lease of life after a hard disk and memory upgrade. I feel like I just bought a new laptop. My old software configuration was horrible.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Great Price for a Larger, Quick, Laptop Hard Drive. I used this with an enclosure for a PVR system at home. After many failed attempts with Flash drives and other Hard Drives, it was nice to just work after a simple partitioning. It runs at low temperature too. Never have to worry about over heating. Toshiba will always be a top choice for laptop hard drives.

Cons: None that I can think of.

4 out of 5 eggsDrive is great for PS3

Pros: Works great with PS3. Drive is quiet while running, maybe more quiet than the original drive.

Cons: It seems the writes take longer. Whenever downloading a game I think it takes about 1.5X longer.

Other Thoughts: The drive is only slow while downloading games aka writing, but it reads as quick as the orignal drive. I bought an external case for the old drive.

Pros: Works perfectly in PS3, only difference between this drive and the 60 gig one that came in my PS3 is storage space.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Take your time with the PS3 HDD carrige screws.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks on a MacBook

Pros: I bought this as a replacement/expansion for my MacBook's (version 2,1) original hard drive. It started right up after installing it. I haven't had it long enough to comment on any longer term issues, but it does work.

Cons: None so far.
