Fast Hard Drive

Pros: Bought this HDD brand new off an auction website. Used it to replace the 4200rpm Fujitsu MHU2100AT hard drive in my HP DV1000. This 7200rpm drive is very fast for a laptop IDE drive and boots Linux Mint 13 in less than a minute.

Cons: None

Wow...so impressed.

Pros: Couldn't agree with the poster just below me more! With this drive and 2GB of ram, the computer becomes lightning quick. I'm coming from a 5400rpm Toshiba that was installed on my Dell XPS M140, and though that drive served my needs well, this Hitachi is leaps and bounds beyond it. Applications load super fast, and I did an empirical test to prove so. Prior to installing this drive, Windows XP load time was 1 minute 50s, after, 1 minute 10, and that's with an AV program present! Newegg sold out of these in mid January and had to wait for a solid month till they received them again to purchase one. Very glad that I waited.

Cons: Definitely not a con, but as other's have stated, the drive is slightly more audible than my 5400rpm Toshiba. And slightly is almost an overstatement, the drive is still whisper quite by anyone's standards. If you've hesitated because of that, don't waste your time any longer contemplating it, purchase this drive as the increase is not significant whatsoever; it really shouldn't bother anyone.

Other Thoughts: Just to help other's looking to make this much needed type of upgrade, definitely pick up the Vantec Nextar (NST-250U2) enclosure, and definitely use Acronis True Image Home to clone your old hard drive to this one. The entire process was flawless. Just to reiterate, if you have a 5400rpm HD in your laptop that you want to breathe new life into, this is the route to go; don't waste your money on a new laptop when this is all that you need to significantly increase performance (well this and 2GB of ram compliment one another nicely!). Applications will launch much much quicker and overall system performance will be so much better that it will lead you to almost believe you just purchased a new laptop. Hope that helps anyone with any doubts/concerns.

Good but Bad

Pros: It was fast when it worked

Cons: Died after loading OS and drivers. BSoD then no boot at all. installed my old hard drive and it worked fine. The new one was bad.

Other Thoughts: I am probably one of those that just got unlucky and got a bad one. I am getting a replacement one of the same kind since it go so many good reviews.

Easy and quick

Pros: The hard drive was way easy to swap out in my Inspiron 8500. Was able to double the size of my storage and double the actual speed of the stock hard drive. Runs quick and stable.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: cheap and easy upgrade for an old machine

A great upgrade for a ThinkPad T42

Pros: Fast speed, no additional firmware flashing needed.

Cons: Slightly noiser than previous Travelstar drive

Other Thoughts: I had some serious doubts about getting this drive due to concerns that IBM had their own firmware, and that flashing this would be a big deal. As it turns out, this pertains ONLY to the T43, not T41/T42 as they are true PATA chipset machines (and the firmware is a work-around for the T43's SATA interface.

Pros: Super fast & Quite

Cons: laptop bottom much warmer than a 5400 rpm WD Scorpion. 30 Dasy later SMART DISK and Vista tell me it's going to Die Soon. Hitachi HD software says it's bad also.
