Pros: Enormous size for a laptop
Cons: A bit slow, even for a mechanical hard drive, but that's why I have an SSD for a boot drive.
Other Thoughts: I've read in several places that the 12.5mm drives weren't supposed to fit the HP dv7-2000/3000 series laptops, but I figured I would see for myself. If it didn't fit, I would just put it in an enclosure. Fortunately though, it did fit, a bit snug, but nothing, not even the cradle, needed to be modified for it to fit.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of storage. Fairly quick (this drive can't compete with a 7200RPM drive).
Cons: One of the two drives I purchased for my DV7t died after 9 months. It gave no warning sign, just stopped working. Samsung support was very helpful though. I promptly received a new drive; however, I did lose some data.
Other Thoughts: The drive that contained my OS('s) crashed. I did a lot more modification of the partition table on this drive than most people will ever do. I had 4 operating systems, and 3 different file systems on this drive at one time. I don't really know if that has any effect on the drive's life, but it may. Then again I may have just gotten a bad drive.READ FULL REVIEW
