5 out of 5 eggsInstalled in Laptop

Pros: Performed as advertised. I ordered the "thin" hard drive for a machine that did not require one. Good thing the carrier had no problem accepting the thin drive. I had some concern because I installed the drive into an HP laptop that has only two rubber cups to hold the drive in place, but everything fit and worked just fine.

Cons: None at this point.

2 out of 5 eggsNot happy

Pros: 500GB Capacity - Plenty of storage for someone who occasionally stores stuff on their computer.

Cons: Failed after 3 months.

Other Thoughts: I found this drive inside of my sister's laptop when it quit working. She barely used the laptop and the hard drive died within 3 months. The laptop was never dropped or thrown around, my sister was very careful with this laptop since it was a gift from our parents on her birthday. I could have called HP and asked for a replacement HDD but i didnt want to get one of the same brand, so replaced it with a new SSD. Looking for a large capacity HDD for your laptop? Try WD, my old 2010 laptop is still running with its original 1TB drive.

5 out of 5 eggsSeagate Momentus Thin ST500LT012 500GB 5400 RPM

Pros: Small and FAST! Their making HDDs smaller and smaller.
I would have bet that the box marked "2 Pieces" had only one as I unwrapped and two of the smallest bare drives fell to the floor and worked fine afterwards.

Cons: none

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.
