1 out of 5 eggsI think it lasted almost 4 days...

Pros: 1TB, Price

Cons: 12 mm Form Factor might not fit every Laptop drive or External enclosure...but, hey, 12 mm is the future.

Other Thoughts: I wish it had lasted more than 4 days.

1 out of 5 eggsBad.

Pros: Cheap, large capacity

Cons: Since installing my machine has been plagued by odd issues. The biggest was repeated corruption of data files; particulary the search index. I tried two fresh installs. I tried all manner of drivers and settings and nothing made it any better.

Eventually I did a fresh install on a different disk and all my problems disappeared. I was careful to use the same install disk, same driver files, etc.

I'm not sure if its just the nature of the drive or mine has a flaw, but its SLOW. SLOWER than the specs would indicate (of course, take specs with a grain of salt).

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind, if you buy this, its thicker than smaller capacity drives, make sure your laptop has room for it.

4 out of 5 eggsFits my MacBook

Pros: 1 Terabyte! Fits my late 2008 aluminum MacBook! Used SuperDuper to clone the drive and had it installed and running in less than an hour.

Cons: Drive is a little slower but expected that going in. Like all 1Tb drives it is 12.5mm thick rather than 9.5mm. Fits great into my computer but you will need to reasearch to make sure it will fit yours.

Other Thoughts: Side Note: SuperDuper will clone Mac partition but not Bootcamp/Windows partitions.Will update review in a month or so to report any issues or failures.

2 out of 5 eggsGrey market drive - no warranty

Pros: This is a great drive technically speaking -

Cons: however, Newegg is currently selling a grey market/OEM version. The "3 year warranty" is not covered by Toshiba. We ordered 40 and they are all out of warranty through Toshiba

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: capacity

Cons: form factor

Other Thoughts: I am planning on buying this HD for my PS3 slim. Will it fit in there? My research shows that ps3 slim takes 9.5 mm HDD, but wanted to see if anyone actually has tried to put 12.5 mm in PS3 slim (internally) and got to work successfully (without modding the case!)

1 out of 5 eggsCatastrophic Failure

Pros: 1TB capacity in a small form factor. Even at 12.5mm it still fit perfectly in a 13" Mac Book Pro. No issues with read/write speeds.

Cons: I ordered this on 10/22/2010 and on 11/28/2010 it failed. This puts it just beyond the 30-day warranty that Newegg provides by default. It's not Newegg's fault, but they should be aware of substandard products like this.

Other Thoughts: It was a good deal for its price, but now having to pay for another brand at an additional cost removes any cost efficiency initially realized by this price/capacity/form factor combination.
