Seagate integrators and OEM customers are faced with an increasing demand for thinner yet fully functional mainstream laptop computing solutions. Until recently, the only option for these thinner solutions revolved around high-priced, slow performing 1.8-inch drives and high-priced, fast solid state drives. Because both storage types were costly options, system designers had no choice but to build thinner chassis only for their high-end lines. Enter Seagate ingenuity.

5 out of 5 eggstm1171

Pros: This HDD came in my laptop and has lasted coming on three years now. It still performs like it is new and has lasted through several drops while running. It is a decent drive for playing games on which is the type of things I do

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I would strongly recommend this drive to someone looking for a good reliable HDD with plenty of space.

2 out of 5 eggsDead in 1.5 months

Pros: It fits in the laptop.

Cons: Replaced an S3-391 bad drive. Eventually, the computer would only boot sometimes. The drive showed up on my SATA dock after a couple drives and I ran a scan and it checked out.

I proceeded to replace other parts, only to find out the drive was causing the problem. Popped in another drive temporarily and it booted up and works fine. Doing an exchange but wasted a lot of time on this =/

Other Thoughts: Wish the laptop didn't only fit thin drives lol

5 out of 5 eggsGood Seagate product

Pros: The hard drive runs cool and quickly. it is a nice small design for a 500gb drive.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: As with any thing that is mass produced and has moving parts there is always a likelihood of a bad apple. Do not be swayed because someone gets a bad one. It's bound to happen. This is a great drive and I think it is a great choice if you need a sleek and dependable drive.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst Class

Pros: Easy to install. Replaced an existing Seagate 320G hard drive that died after the PC suffered a blow. Have lots of storage for all the photos and MP3s.

Cons: Don't have any for this product. Did have problems with the laptop I was installing it in recognizing it and booting from it, however, the computer mfg tech support web site had the problem fixed in seconds.

Other Thoughts: Seagate makes a very good product. Would buy another, and recommend to a friend.
