5 out of 5 eggsFast, Quiet, Affordable

Pros: Not much to say, this was a low-cost replacement for a failed Hitachi 4200 RPM / 2 meg cache drive in an old HP laptop. Installed without trouble and seems to be a lot faster than the drive it replaced. No problems to report after 2 months of service.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Bought this drive initially as a replacement drive for an old compaq laptop. Compaq laptop failed after a little more use so I placed the drive in a USB enclosure and it has been working flawlessly ever since.

Cons: A bit slow compared to some of the faster drives avalible but hard to notice on the USB connection

Other Thoughts: It is alot cheaper now then when I bought it. It was xx dollars before but now it is only xx

5 out of 5 eggsGood at what it does.

Pros: Painless install. Quiet. Cool.
The old IBM drive in my Inspiron i8100 died due to the notorious heat issue with the Dells. This puppy has had no issues and runs much cooler than the old drive.

Cons: There's faster drives, but no Cons for it's price.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Hard Drive

Pros: Hard drive is fast, quiet, isn't a drain on power, and it's fairly easy on the wallet. I especially like the fact that it's not only quiet, but even the CPU fan in my laptop hasn't had to spin up as much since I've installed this hard drive. I partitioned and formatted the drive externally, and even sitting out on my kitchen counter I couldn't hear any noise while it was in operation.

Cons: The drive seems to have something audibly shifting inside of it. I don't know enough about the construction of this drive to tell if it is faulty or if there is just a shock protection device clicking into place. At any rate, it's been working great for over a week now, I hope it keeps it up.

Other Thoughts: I used this hard drive to replace the 20GB Hitachi drive in my HP Pavilion zt1130 laptop. The Hitachi drive was making loud clicking noises after 4+ years of constant use and abuse, and the HP diagnostic tools were saying that the hard drive was about to die.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems.

Comments: The hard drive in my laptop (Dell Inspiron 8000) died and I just wanted the cheapest thing to get up and running. This drive seemed to fit the bill. It was easy to install and has been working fine. Seems pretty fast too, although I can't say definitively if it's faster than the old one.
