While sealed in an anti-static bag, none of the drives I received were new. Not ONE of them. Ordered 5 total. One has black gunk stuck to the bottom of it and one smells like it can from a smokers machine. The rest have finger prints and corrosion on the contacts and dust in the crevices. These look like they were pulled from previous machines and resold. Will not buy again.

I had a drive just stop in an otherwise perfectly useful duocore 15" feature laptop that I liked. I replaced it with a bodacious fast quadcore 17.5" multimedia monster, but that's heavy.

Frankly, I never liked crummy Vista anyway (I have Win7 in the big machine) and had sold my tricked out minibook with Ubuntu to a design engineer, and missed running Linux in something bigger than a phone.

Kicked up the RAM to the max, installed Ubuntu and presto, a 15" fast and MORE than enough RAM laptop, saved, for the cost of this drive.

Good deal, got here quickly and works perfectly. Can't ask for more than that!

Lasted only for 30 days. I bought it for the extra storage but the HDD concked off. I might have been unlucky with a faulty piece but I was really very disappointed. I used it in my HP Pavillion dv6000 laptop and it developed a clicking sound within 20 days and within the next 8 days it crashed. I tried everything but the HDD didn't work. I went back to using the Fujitsu HDD 120 GB that came originally with the laptop.

I've owned several of these over the years, Replacing the 5400RPM hard drives that usually come with a Laptop.. I've also bought about 3 to use as Portable Storage Drives. I've never had a Problem with any of them and some are now over 4 years old.... Nowa days they are a little on the small size but they still make good portable storage drives if you can get a portable 2.5 inch case for a small amount of money (which You Can)..

The only concern I have this HDD is it make a noise once in a while and this makes me worried if this HDD will be broke down soon.

Other than the noise i guess it is ok.
