5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: I got the drive for my Dell 5150 and could not be more pleased. The performance is stunning as it is a very fast drive for the rpm. It's very quiet and draws less power than the 4200rpm travelstar it replaced--I'm actually getting 1/2 hour more per battery after installing it. In my opinion there is no better drive for the price.

Cons: I have not noticed any.

Other Thoughts: I like this drive so much I'm planning on getting another for my eight year-old laptop that I don't even use that much.

5 out of 5 eggscake

Pros: standard form fit and function for a 2.5" and very quite. replaced an HP noisy harddrive (15G) and upgraded from ME to XP. much better!

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Compaq Persario Laptop, remove front panel to replace harddrive by screws on bottom front. Used ATA 2.5" to 3.5" converter connector to mount old drive on home PC ATA cable and extract data. Bought from local store for $x (cheaper than online) then connected new drive and copied data to new drive after formatting. piece of cake. 600MHZ CPU, 378MB RAM (yes it still works)

5 out of 5 eggsWILL NOT WORK WITH IBM/LENOVO THINKPADS

Pros: IT IS A SEAGATE !!! What else can you ask for. This is the top of the line in quality

Cons: this drive will not work with newer IBM/LENOVO thinkpads such as the T43 and possible T60 thanks to LENOVO's bios screw job where they only take hitatchi drives. I had to sell this becasue of it. :(

5 out of 5 eggsVery solid product

Pros: Fast and quiet.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Until something serious happens in the industry regarding technology or warranty, I will never buy anything other than a Seagate for a very long time.

5 out of 5 eggsIf you're using this in a USB enclosure

Pros: Works great, it's a Seagate and they are the best!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you're putting this in an external USB, google for fat32format (the Ridgecrop link is good) because you can't format larger drives as FAT32 in XP. Even if you get clever and try to format it fat32 from a command prompt, you will get an error at the end of a very very long wait and it will fail.

5 out of 5 eggsSeagate really are great

Pros: 100 gigs at a good price. Speed tests put it on par with 7200 RPM drives when used in a USB 2 external case.

Cons: 5400 RPM isn't the fastest

Other Thoughts: If you are installing this in an external USB or Firewire case, the 5400 RPM won't slow it down. When I tested transfer read/write in comparison with 40 gig and 60 gig 7200 RPM drives, all in external USB 2 cases, this drive was actually the fastest. I did not test them hooked up to the IDE cable but I would assume in that case the 7200 RPM would show a higher sustained throughput. If you're putting it IN a laptop, by all means get the 7200 RPM drive. Otherwise, USB looks like it is the bottleneck.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Drive!!!!!

Pros: Bought this to replace the HD in an Archos Jukebox 20 MP3/Recorder, since I got tired of constantly rotating my MP3 collection from my computer to the Archos. Now, I don't have to manage a thing, since I have GBs to burn!!! The drive is fast and quiet. Do not hesitate to buy it if you're in the market

Cons: Other than wishing I had another for my other Archos Jukebox 20MP3/Recorder, none.
