5 out of 5 eggsExcellent OEM Replacement

This review is from: SAMSUNG Spinpoint M8 ST500LM012(HN-M500MBB) 500GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Perfect replacement for OEM laptop drives that go bad.
Easy install. Quick response times. Low heat output. Very quiet.
Withstands certain motions effortlessly, although, I don't suggest you abuse the drive. All mechanical hard drives are susceptible to failure from impact.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsTwo months without issue

This review is from: SAMSUNG Spinpoint M8 ST500LM012(HN-M500MBB) 500GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Functioned out of the box at speeds I'd expect from a 5400 RPM drive
Pricing was unbeatable

Cons: I'd almost forgotten how slow 5400 RPM really is
Some of these reviews had me wary of drive failure, and it did hiccup once or twice during some initial setup, but otherwise it's been on its best behavior.
