3 out of 5 eggsSometimes you get a lemon

Pros: Price

Cons: Failed the first day

Other Thoughts: I guess it was my turn to get a dud. I purchased this drive to use as a clone for my laptop. Right off the bat I had problems with the cloned drive randomly "locking up". Ran the Seagate diagnostics tool on it and it failed the tests. Newegg was great about shipping me a replacement. i will update this if the replacement has any issues.

5 out of 5 eggsSeagate Momentus Thin

Pros: Thin.
Works.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Used this for a direct replacement of a failed Win8 HDD in a customer's ASUS notebook.

Windows 8/Asus's schema of a restore partition is nice, but only if owners take the darn 10 minutes to create restore media.

2 out of 5 eggsUnreliable drives that fail often

Pros: Small form factor
It stores data

Cons: They do not last
Data Loss
Frustration
Upset clients

Other Thoughts: Seagate used to be a reliable brand of hard drive many years back. In the last few years they have really fallen short in the reliability department. I own a computer business and Seagate drives account for 90% of the failures that I see day in and day out. I avoid these drives at all costs. Hitachi is actually my preferred drive these days as they are very reliable.
