5 out of 5 eggsGreat Hard Drive

Pros: Let me say this is a great drive I had a old Hitachi 120Gb drive and went to This drive and what a difference Faster access time, Boot time ETC, no more lag in my Games when loading loads about 25-50% faster I received the drive today and loaded it up with Windows 7 and no problems Newegg is awesome if there's a problem there here to help you out.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I know im not getting much Speed difference in my old Dell Precision M90 because its Sata 1 just needed a bigger drive and Western Digital Black drives are the way to go if your a gamer I've always bought Western Digital and never had problems the laptop is just for College work, tech work, Some gaming.

Pros: 5 year warranty

Cons: First drive failed in under 5 weeks. RMA replacement failed in 4 weeks. I see others are having similar problems. Not paying shipping for this repeat incident.

Other Thoughts: Plenty but Newegg would pull my post if stated.

5 out of 5 eggsNice drive

Pros: This drive has been running beautifully. It was thrown in an old Dell laptop and had been perfect. 7200 rpm drive so, not as fast as an SSD, but given the age of the laptop (it has DDR2 in it), I doubt an SSD would make that much of a difference.

Cons: None

2 out of 5 eggsDell Inspiron N5010

Pros: Great look, great processpr the i5, good graphics.

Cons: Someone decided to force you into Dell's warranty. The Hard Drive has been placed under the Motherboard. Get a bootmgr missing click cntrl alt delete to restart and its almost a sign of death. You have to remove the MB, Cover, Kybd, monitor, then HD. Why? So you can be blackmailed into Dell's service agreement. HP is bad, a plastic part on there products is 400.00 for say a dvd/rw. Google unknown problems of the model no. before buying. Here's another scenario, remember, buying HP gets you someone in India, so they outsource your job, then put someone on the phone that will be a nightmare for someone who is not computer suavy. The only product I would recommend is there printer. Avoid there laptops. But with Dell, I would google troubleshooting options before buying there products. This HD placement shows they don't care about their customers.

Other Thoughts: They'll try and rip you off with a Celeron processor, don't let them. Also they are putting 5400 rpm drives instead of 7200 rpm, which causes really slow boot ups. A loss of business will be the only thing that brings change to the consumer.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Warranted for 5 years.

Cons: Did not last 5 weeks.

Other Thoughts: Sad state of affairs that QA could not catch bad product. Really frustrating to rebuild a system only to have it fail weeks later.

1 out of 5 eggsDisapointed

Pros: Quick Delivery

Cons: Put it in my laptop and it only shows it's a 150 gig drive. Label says 500 gigs...

Other Thoughts: Not sure my 30 days are up, but it sure would have been nice to get the right drive. Didn't use it right away so I didn't know it wasn't the right size. Installed it in a Lenovo X60 .
