3 out of 5 eggsHigh pitched noise

Pros: Fast and easy installation.

Cons: The drive makes high pitched noise, even when it is idle. The high pitched sound may be tolerate if you only use the computer in a short period time. But it is squeaky enough to make you uncomfortable and loosing concentration, if you have to work for a long period of time.

Other Thoughts: As a Toshiba tech told me that the noise may be caused by the defection of that particular drive. I am RMA this drive, and will see the replacement.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: Fast, Quiet, Cooler at 45C, Reliable, Newegg on Time

Cons: Price was okay, could be a little more faster rpm, run more cooler

Other Thoughts: A upgrade and a replacement for my seagate 5400rpm 2mb which die in a yr off usually on my Dell 600m. With the 16mb it ran much smoother and so far no problem. 5C cooler than my previous seagate

3 out of 5 eggsFun while it lasted

Pros: Fast drive. Was relatively cheap for the capacity and the large cache.

Cons: After owning it for about 1.5 years, the drive began reallocating sectors until it got into the S.M.A.R.T. failure mode. It was in a laptop that was powered on for long periods of time, but with relatively few power on/power off cycles. It started scrambling the data, and finally wouldn't boot. I was able to recover most of the data files and now have the drive in for repair or replacement.

Other Thoughts: Yes the drive was relatively cheap, but I consider my data valuable enough that I would prefer to have the option to pay more money and receive a high reliability drive. I would gladly pay twice what I paid for this drive to get one that would last for 5 years without failure.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: 16MB cache
Quiet

Cons: ?

Other Thoughts: I used this guy to replace a dead 5GB travelstar from an Acer 332T and it definitly works. I don't now about speed since I inherited the laptop dead, but I bet it's faster than the stock 512KB, 4400RPM. I have not had any overheating issues.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value drive

Pros: Value prices, high cache, good speed.

Cons: None that I have experienced, others have stated heat but I have not noticed high heat even in my external Weibetech ComboGB enclosure.

Other Thoughts: I found this drive to be totally silent at normal drive to ear distances. You may hear some drive noise if you hold it to your ear, but how often will you hold your drive to your ear??? I'm using this drive in an external enclosure that is USB 2.0/Firewire400/Firewire800 capable and it rocks right along with the 7200 RPM drives without the heat.

I have transfered huge amounts of data to this drive via all three transfer types and the Weibetech case is barely warm to the touch...I'm not sure what the others are talking about when it comes to heat issues, but I agree with the reviews about speed and dBSPL levels.

Buy with confidence.
