Pros: Great hard drive. I refreshed my Mac Mini with a 250gb Samsung Evo 840 SSD and wanted to install an internal Time Machine backup drive using a 2nd HDD kit from OWC..
It's a little spendier than other 2.5" drives but if the numbers and reviews are right it's worth it.

Cons: Action Packaged is the WORST online purchase experience I have had in a very long time! I placed my order before Labor Day and lingered in processing forever. It was 3 weeks before I received the drive.
This vendor will never see another cent of my money again.
I have been a Newegg customer for 8 years and it has always been a great experience...except this purchase.

Other Thoughts: I did my homework for this purchase because the Mini is so difficult to work on. I only wanted it in the shop once so I chose the Samsung SSD and the WD Scorpio Black based on user reviews.
Research revealed that a Time Machine drive should be 2-3 times the size of the boot drive so 750gb was the choice to keep a 250gb SSD backed up.
This drive had the highest MTBF, fastest numbers and best customer reviews of any other 2.5" HDD.

This review is from: iolo System Mechanic - Download

Pros: Seems to work as advertized. Great deal as a paid download.

Cons: Didn't notice a big improvement

Other Thoughts: I use my computer for internet access, photo management and document management. Pretty mundane stuff. I don't really do a lot of high risk stuff and I don't game on my system.
I run Avast for security and I'm very adept at system maintenance so I wasn't expecting much. System Mechanic did report some registry errors that were fixed so for a cheap paid download I guess it was worth the price.
