Great company to purchase from !!

Pros: Great Prices
Extremely fast shipping
Fast correspondence time
Extremely fast easy tech support if there is a problem

Cons: None ... I've been working with and repairing computers for over 30yrs and can honestly say that this company is one of the best I've dealt with over the years.

Other Thoughts: E.O.L. Tech Inc is a company willing to provide the best in customer service and one that I will not only purchase from again but also will recommend to others.

Update to Previous Post

Pros: I posted a review previously about this item, which gave them a poor rating. The item was extremely late arriving to me and they blamed it on the post office, don't really want to spell it all out again, but whatever right. Well, I put the item away, since the item arrived late I purchased from a more reliable company and received the new hard drive the next day. Once again whatever right. Well I had a customer come in and I cloned his hard drive and replaced his hard drive with this one and one week to the day later the customer came in and the hard drive stopped functioning.

Cons: Now I can finalize my complete review with this company and state not reliable shipping and the hard drive was junk. Would not recommend purchasing from them.

Other Thoughts: Thanks for taking my money and providing............well nothing

Does what it's supposed to do.

Pros: Got this to replaced a dying HDD in a laptop. It is an older laptop and easy to take the HDD out so it was a quick clone and swap. Still working great after 2+ years, plus it's a 7200 RPM drive that replaced a 5400 one. Felt like it went from a Bug to a Porsche.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: None.

Good drive. solid performance

Pros: Used to replace another burned out 5400 rpm drive. No issues and obviously faster

Cons: it's not an SSD but can't take an egg off for that.
