    1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

    Pros: Cheap ... garbage

    Cons: Drive failed within a month. I contacted Newegg and was told that I am 1 day over the return window. Returning to Samsung is a pain. Looks like I'll take the hit and buy another drive. Wouldn't want to go through this again by installing another: looks like that product is a piece of garbage. I'm not the only one who seems to think so: just read the reviews. I got what I paid for.

    2 out of 5 eggsCheap- poor quality but cheap

    Pros: -Cheap
    -quiet
    -decently fast
    It gets 2 eggs because it was cheap.

    Cons: -Cheap
    -poor quality: 2 weeks after installing I already have 2 reallocated sectors

    Other Thoughts: If I didn't have software that monitors the hard drive's S.M.A.R.T. attributes, I wouldn't know about the problem with the 2 sectors. The hard drive I replaced was 3.5 years old and had no bad sectors. The quality on this drive is not that good.

    Pros: Works great so far.
    Had it formatted in less than 5 minutes
    Free, quick shipping

    Cons: None so far.

    Other Thoughts: Using for data backup with the Rosewill RX81U-AT-25A HD enclosure (also from Newegg)
    Had it formatted and backing up data in 5 minutes.

    5 out of 5 eggs

    Pros: Quiet, runs cool, cheap -- overall great value

    Cons: Low capacity but serves my needs well (I don't need more capacity)

    Other Thoughts: Bought to replace the drive in my 3.5 year old Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop. I replaced the old drive not because it failed but because it would soon be a 4 year old drive and I use the computer heavily. I didn't want the original drive to die on me. For thirty bucks on sale, I couldn't have asked for a better deal. I used the Windows 7 backup capability to create a system image and restored the image on the new drive. The process was very smooth and fast. My system is exactly the way it was with the old drive. I didn't have to reinstall anything.

    5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

    Pros: Very quiet, runs cool. My Windows hard drive score went up even though the hard drive I replaced was a 7200 RPM drive.

    Cons: Can't think of any. It's a small drive but I don't really need anything larger, perfect for my purpose.

    Other Thoughts: My main home laptop is 3.5 years old. I've never kept a computer that long but have no real reason to replace the computer. I pretty much never turn it off. I bought this drive because I didn't want to have the original one die on me. Given that most of my data is uploaded onto my network drives, I didn't really use the laptop's hard drive for storage. This hard drive is a great buy.

    5 out of 5 eggsA bit tough to get windows to see it, but it worked eventually.

    Pros: +Didn't come to me DOA
    +Works in my enclosure

    Cons: -Was kind of tough to get windows to format it and give it a drive letter. It would begin formatting (as an external) and just not complete. I eventually hooked it up directly via SATA and that got it to work and I was able to give it a letter and name. Since then it has been fine. I won't dock an egg for this since it was most likely an isolated problem for me alone.

    Other Thoughts: I picked this drive up to replace an older one of the same size that I was using for the Wii USB loader that I had accidentally dropped and killed the drive. This one replaced it just fine.

    4 out of 5 eggsDescent drive

    Pros: Arrived in one piece and works fine. Typical performance for a 5400RPM notebook drive. Got it on sale for $39, and at that price it's a fair deal. I needed a cheap drive to fix a cheap netbook for a customer, and this fit the bill.

    Cons: none

    Other Thoughts: none

    5 out of 5 eggsSolid Replacement Drive

    Pros: Low Price
    Compatibility
    5400 RPM much better than orig. 4200 RPM

    Cons: None

    Other Thoughts: A client brought me in few years old Compaq laptop running Vista, with multiple problems. After diagnosing the hard drive as the culprit, we started looking at replacement hard drives. With his budget I wasn't expecting much, but this hard drive installed without issues, and runs perfectly. Great product, and quick shipping. Thanks newegg!
