2 out of 5 eggsSLOW

Pros: It hasn't died yet.

Cons: This is by far the slowest hard drive I've ever laid my hands on. it came pre-installed on my Lenovo Y500 that I bought on this site. Random slowdowns and lagspikes are commonplace, boot times are abysmal, and it's caused my computer to lock up many times. I have a friend that got the same exact laptop from me with this same hard drive and he's having the same issues as me.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy this.It isn't worth it no matter how cheap it is. If your laptop comes with one of these pre-installed I recommend that you replace it ASAP.

1 out of 5 eggsSlowest piece of hardware I've used. EVER.

Pros: It didn't fail on me.Yet.

Cons: I got this with my SAMSUNG laptop pre-installed. I had to use this laptop for a year during a demanding Computer-Science College Preperatory course. I don't think I've ever seen anything slower. Its usage two thirds of the time is 100% and lag spikes are all over the place. I replaced it with a hybrid drive and the computer suddenly became actually GOOD. I really do think this HDD hindered my academic performance.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it. Don't even think of it.

4 out of 5 eggsNeed help?

Pros: Nice item, fast. Good price.

Cons: Some people might return this as DOA because it arrived uninitialized or formatted. Windows couldn't see it. If it happens to you with any HDD, click on Start and type in Disk Management.

It will show you your HDD's and you go all the way to the left of the graphic for this one, right-click and choose "Initialize." Next right-click again and choose "create volume" or "create partition" and it will do the rest. Very quickly it will show as a formatted drive with a drive letter.

This isn't the first time this has happened to me, even with other brands and vendors so it's nice to know how to manage it.

5 out of 5 eggsNo like the older product

Pros: Great price
Was wonderful after hours on the phone with Samsung
helping me

Cons: Newegg's site said this was a direct replacement for the same item I purchased in 2012....same P/N except former ended in /Z4...this one in /EX2

Other Thoughts: Newegg made no effort to help make this work. Their site needs to state all support must come from Samsung/Seagate

1 out of 5 eggsSlow as 1995

Pros: None

Cons: Slowest drive I think I've used since the 90's.
I'm not one to do speed tests, but when I'm constantly seeing the drive light on 100%, and anything requiring disk access is slow, it's for sure the drive.

Other Thoughts: When I go look at the resource/disk tab to see if it's something unique. Nope, looks like normal applications.

1 out of 5 eggsCame in a Lenovo G510

Pros: Great size, average speed, worked just fine for more than a year.

Cons: Failed a couple of months after warranty.
Seems like many people had issues with this drive having the head stuck.

Other Thoughts: I won't be buying another lenovo computer, specially after finding out the low quality of the hard drive. I should have replaced this with an SSD as soon as i got it :(

All of my photos are lost now.

3 out of 5 eggsExcrutiatingly slow

Pros: Reliable, energy efficient

Cons: Redefines "slow"

Other Thoughts: I own a Lenovo Y410p, and from what I can work out, this is the hard drive that shipped with it.

I have owned this laptop for nearly two years now and have had zero problems with the reliability of the drive. However, I would estimate that a solid 3/4 of my time using the computer has been spent with I/O usage at 100%.

Want to run Dropbox or Google Drive? How about Google Chrome? iTunes? Skype? The moment you even think about opening these, the drive will have maxed itself out. Heaven forbid any of them start with Windows...

On that note, it takes a solid 10 minutes for the computer to become usable after booting up, purely because of this hard drive. CPU usage will remain below 5%, RAM below 40%, but HDD will be at 100%.

As soon as I am able, I will purchase an SSD to replace it and stuff a faster 7200rpm hard drive into this computer's extra bay. Until then, I must suffer.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Works great, hasn't failed. Used in a mirrored drive setup (needed to buy the same drive as one I already owned).

Cons: Not a WD drive?
