- Low power consumption
Died within a week 11/28/2013
For the very short time this hard drive worked, it was very fast and very quiet.
Even after seeing the bad reviews I decided to give this drive a try since it was on sale and was 7200 rpm, 500 gb. The drive completely failed within a week. I started to hear loud clicking, screeching and clanking noises while working on my netbook followed with Windows freezing. At that point I knew the drive was dead but decided to give it one last chance and do a full format to possibly save the drive. Half-way through the format, the drive once again made loud clicking, screeching and clanking noises and then the format stopped and failed. I shipped it back for a full refund and I do not think I will be buying another HDD from this brand that I never even heard of before.
I would have rated this one egg if not for Newegg's prompt refund. I suppose I’m glad it died early so that it was still eligible for RMA and also while my OS install was still fresh. Like the old saying, sooner rather than later.
