Momentus Series Technology Features

SmartAlign Technology for Easy 4K Migration

A change is coming to the hard drive industry. The smallest sector of organized data on a drive is moving from 512 to 4,096 bytes. The new format, known as Advanced Format (AF) 4K, offers advantages like increased efficiency, but migrating your drive can be challenging. Luckily, Seagate is ready to help you make a seamless transition to 4K sectors. Seagate's SmartAlign technology automatically does the work of AF migration in the background. The drive's performance is not affected, and there is no need for time-consuming utilities required by other AF-enabled drives.

Before I get into specifics, this caution - note the date and model on this (and other) Seagate internal hard drive reviews. Amazon lumps together drives of differing technology, size, and generation into one review pile. Look for the reviews that actually apply to the drive you're considering.

Even though I read multiple reviews warning that this 750GB drive is prone to failure, I'm an optimist so I bought one anyway. About two weeks later, my computer crashed with a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) which turned out to be due to a bad sector that had developed in a critical system file. I ran a repair, got the machine working again, and two days later got another BSOD from more newly-developed bad sectors. The drive's built-in SMART diagnostic system is now predicting imminent drive failure. Given the number of people who have had similar experiences with this Seagate 750GB internal laptop product, one that has not been on the market that long, Seagate should stop selling it until they fix the problem.

If you're even more optimistic than I am and buy this drive anyway, be aware of another problem (albeit fixable) that nobody will tell you about in advance. This 750GB drive uses a new 4k sector size. Seagate advertises that they have built-in code that should make the sector size transparent to your system. While it seems to be true that the drive doesn't require you to install special software to accommodate its sector size, nevertheless your machine may require that you install an updated version of Intel's Matrix Storage Manager before the drive will function properly. You will get errors that don't tell you that this is the problem.

I needed a hard disk for my Sony Vaio laptop as I was getting cyclic redundancy check failures. I wanted a 1 TB hard disk (after all, I am spending the bucks, why not go for the trophy capacity) - but soon realized after some research that all 1 TB 2.5" hard disks in the market now are little thicker (taller) than most laptops have space for. Unless yours is a new laptop that can take a 12.5 mm thick hard disk, you have to stick to the standard 9.5 thick ones - which means you cannot get 1 TB, at least now. I am sure 6 months down the line, WD or Seagate or Samsung's gonna come up with a regular sized 1 TB disk. Anyway, I downgraded my capacity wish to 750 GB, and after some research, zeroed in on this one - reading some good favorable reviews on newegg and tigerdirect. I went with Amazon because of Amazon's great return policy (it is a hard disk to be shipped on a truck after all). Fit perfectly. Lots of space now, don't know what to do with it actually! Unless this one dies on me before its average life expectancy is over, I am going to stick to this 5 star review!

Got this 720 GB HDD as an expansion hard drive for my Playstation 3 (fat model) and its been working great (installed for three weeks now.) No compatibility problems with upgrading from 5400 rpm to 7200 rpm. When I run the PS3 for hours I can hear the fan going louder to cool the system, but no overheating problems so far. Completely recommend it if you want a cheap upgrade.

Size Name: 750 GB Verified Purchase
I originally bought a Western Digital WD Scorpio Black 750 GB SATA 3 GB/s 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache Internal Bulk/OEM 2.5-Inch Mobile Hard Drive for use in my mid-2009 15-inch MacBook Pro (MacBookPro5,4). It had a major problem which I believe is due to a defect in the design of this version of the MacBook Pro. I replaced the Scorpio with a Seagate Momentus with comparable specs, and it has been working great.

The Seagate drives have an important feature which the Western Digital drives do not: a jumper which allows you to limit the speed of the SATA link to 1.5Gb/s. This turned out to be critical for me, since my version of the MacBook Pro apparently has problems with 3Gb/s drives. Lowering the transfer speed to 1.5Gb/s fixes everything. I'm probably reducing the performance of the drive slightly, but that's irrelevant, since the Scorpio at 3Gb/s was unusable to due the SATA link constantly resetting, each time freezing my computer for 30 seconds.

I used this HDD on my MacBook Pro instead of the original one. I expected it to be much faster as it's 7200RPM. But that's not the case.
Speed is ok while accessing data files, but it still takes some time when launching "heavy" applications.

My only problem now is trying to launch BootCamp on vmware Fusion (Win Vista on BootCamp runs great on its own). I still need to get that issue fixed!

I didn't notice any noise from the drive as I read in some reviews, so I believe it's quite enough for whoever works in the night when there's silence surrounding him like I do.

Great product and recommended for whoever is looking to expand his MBP's HDD.

If you own a laptop that is not operating up to your wishes, and you've already loaded up with RAM and defragmentated the hard drive, chances are that the performance deficit you are experiencing is simply the limitations of a 5400rpm drive, undoubtedly the type that came with your system. An easy (and now, inexpensive) way to significantly boost the speed of the system is simply to replace your 5400rpm drive with a faster, 7200rpm model. This used to be an expensive proposition, but now has become exceptionally affordable.

This particular Seagate model is especially good for upgrading an existing laptop for a number of reasons. First, as mentioned above, this is a 7200rpm drive, which all by itself offers a significant performance boost over the standard 5400rpm versions used in most all stock laptops. Second, the drive is a SATA 3.0Gb model, which means that the theoretical upper threshold for data transfer is exceptionally high (although in real life these values are almost never achieved). In addition, this particular model employs native command queuing, a hardware based performance feature which is not found on all such drives.

At about $60, this is one of the most effective and inexpensive ways to boost a laptop's overall performance. Don't expect miracles, but depending on the drive you are replacing, you may see quite a change in system responsiveness, particularly in disk intensive operations. The easiest way to perform the change is to use a disk imaging program to save a "snapshot" of the entire disk, remove the old disk , install the new drive, and then copy the saved image back to the new drive. Good luck!
