Seagate integrators and OEM customers are faced with an increasing demand for thinner yet fully functional mainstream laptop computing solutions. Until recently, the only option for these thinner solutions revolved around high-priced, slow performing 1.8-inch drives and high-priced, fast solid state drives. Because both storage types were costly options, system designers had no choice but to build thinner chassis only for their high-end lines. Enter Seagate ingenuity.

Make yoursefl a favour, Don't buy that.

Pros: None

Cons: Having this in a all in one from Acer. The computer have been always slow. CPU and Memory wasn't really solicited but the HDD always hit 100% of use. After 9 months the computer start to randomly freeze. I replace it with a SSD and now it's a decent computer. I understand 5400 rpm can't compete a SSD but why selling these if it's just can't handle windows 8 \ 10 data flow.

Other Thoughts: No excessive heat and no major shock. This drive should have done a couple of years.

Installed in Laptop

Pros: Performed as advertised. I ordered the "thin" hard drive for a machine that did not require one. Good thing the carrier had no problem accepting the thin drive. I had some concern because I installed the drive into an HP laptop that has only two rubber cups to hold the drive in place, but everything fit and worked just fine.

Cons: None at this point.

Not happy

Pros: 500GB Capacity - Plenty of storage for someone who occasionally stores stuff on their computer.

Cons: Failed after 3 months.

Other Thoughts: I found this drive inside of my sister's laptop when it quit working. She barely used the laptop and the hard drive died within 3 months. The laptop was never dropped or thrown around, my sister was very careful with this laptop since it was a gift from our parents on her birthday. I could have called HP and asked for a replacement HDD but i didnt want to get one of the same brand, so replaced it with a new SSD. Looking for a large capacity HDD for your laptop? Try WD, my old 2010 laptop is still running with its original 1TB drive.

Seagate Momentus Thin ST500LT012 500GB 5400 RPM

Pros: Small and FAST! Their making HDDs smaller and smaller.
I would have bet that the box marked "2 Pieces" had only one as I unwrapped and two of the smallest bare drives fell to the floor and worked fine afterwards.

Cons: none

Sometimes you get a lemon

Pros: Price

Cons: Failed the first day

Other Thoughts: I guess it was my turn to get a dud. I purchased this drive to use as a clone for my laptop. Right off the bat I had problems with the cloned drive randomly "locking up". Ran the Seagate diagnostics tool on it and it failed the tests. Newegg was great about shipping me a replacement. i will update this if the replacement has any issues.

Seagate Momentus Thin

Pros: Thin.
Works.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Used this for a direct replacement of a failed Win8 HDD in a customer's ASUS notebook.

Windows 8/Asus's schema of a restore partition is nice, but only if owners take the darn 10 minutes to create restore media.
