Toshiba Storage Device Division offers a line of 5,400 RPM 2.5-inch HDDs in a new slim design optimized for industry-leading storage applications. The latest HDD series, MQ01ABDxxx, provides a wide capacity range from 250 GB to 1TB in a 9.5-millimeter-high design with only maximum 2 platters.
The advanced MQ01ABDxxx targets markets such as portable multimedia and gaming notebooks, mobile workstations and other capacity-hungry applications like external HDDs. In addition, the drives also feature very good power efficiency value of 0.00055 for the 1TB model. Due to the "Silent-Seek" technology featured in these drives, the HDDs are extremely quiet: Ultra-silent single-platter drives boast acoustic specifications of 19dBA (seek) and 17dBA (idle) making them almost indistinguishable to the human hear.
This review is from: TOSHIBA MQ01ABD075 750GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive
Pros: Even though I had to reorder it because it got lost in shipping they were really helpful in reordering the drive and upped the shipping to overnight. It didn't get here the next day but the following day but that was okay since I did call them later in the day. When I did get it, it was packed well and easy to swap out. Laptop is working great now.
Cons: The only complaint I have is that when I got the tracking number it clearly said UPS but the email link took me to FedEx so you may want to be more careful about that in the future.
Other Thoughts: The drive did get lost in the mail but I think that was more on Ups than the company. It went to the wrong postal sorting facility and the post office was no help. Newegg helped me reorder, upped the shipping and I had it a day and a half later. When the other one showed up a week later I just sent it back to them. I would order from them again.
