I just spent part of the day changing my standard Apple 80Gb hard drive to the Seagate Momentus 5400.3 160Gb hard drive. I wish I could give you directions on how to crack open your Powerbook G4 but I did the guy-thing and figured it out on my own. I can tell you, however, that it was not difficult to do. Before I started, I inserted my Tiger (OS 10.4) DVD and then shut it down. You need to take the battery out and place your Powerbook on a towel. You alsp need to make sure you have all the right tools and be very careful. I took my old 80Gb out and placed it in a Firewire/USB 2 enclosure made by MacAlly (model PHR-250CC). This was very easy to do. I installed the new Seagate and put everything back together. I started up holding down the "C" key and it fired up running off the DVD. I installed Tiger on the new hard drive and when finished, chose the option to move my files from my "old computer," which was now my old hard drive in the new Firewire enclosure. Everything transferred over without a hitch. This is exactly why we love our Macs! Try doing that in Windoze. I have now been running with the new Seagate for 3 hours. I immediately noticed a jump in speed. Although my old drive was also 5400rpm, the new Seagate is quite noticeably faster. And, most amazingly, it is tremendously cooler than the old hard drive. The old hard drive ran so hot it was uncomfortable to hold on your lap. The new Seagate runs so much cooler that it feels only slightly warmer than room temperature. No kidding. That feature alone is worth the price and the work. I would not hesitate to purchase this Seagate. It's something I should have done a long time ago.

The PS3 comes with a 60 GB Segate Momentus hard drive. I bought this 160 GB Segate Momentus thinking it would be an easy internal upgrade for the PS3.

I was wrong and should have paid more attention. This is not a SATA. It is an Ultra ATA which means it has different connectors.

My money is not wasted, though. When put into an enclosure, it makes an excellent external hard drive and the price is right. I now have a backup external hard drive for my music and picture files on my PC.

Just don't expect to use this as an internal hard drive for your PS3.

So far it has been a solid drive. It replaced an Hitachi 80GB that was rapidly being devoured by Vista, Office 2007, Access 2007, and 2 versions of Visual Studio, 2005 and "Orcas", plus all the other tools used by a low level software developer.

Installation was simple, given the ease of a Dell laptop with easy access to the hard drive. Only issue was re-activiating Vista on the new drive, but that did not even require a phone call.

The drive works as expected - there were no surprises on installation other than the BIOS on the circa 2002 Dell Inspiron 4150 laptop doesn't seem to see the full capacity. No problems though - Win XP sees it all.

This is a 5400rpm drive so it's not going to be as zippy as a 7200rpm, but given the age of the laptop and the possible current draw and heat generation from a 7200rpm drive I decided to be conservative with a 5400rpm drive - still the increased areal density and cache compared to the old drive makes this drive a little snappier than the old drive.

What is really important though is how reliable it is - if it's still going in 3-5 years I would be happy to give it a 5 star rating.

I have been using this drive for almost a year now, and it has performed very well. It is speedy, quiet, and worked straight out of the box. Migrating from my old hard drive was also a breeze thanks to Seagate's DiscWizard tool.

The only niggle that I have is the drive's power-saving feature which I find too aggressive. It spins down after 2-3 minutes of inactivity. As a result, when you are typing a document for example, and need to access a file on the drive, you will find a temporary lag as the drive spins up again to allow you to do so. This power saving feature appears to be an in-built function of the drive, and works independently of the power settings in Windows.

If you are considering to purchase this drive, try to get hold of the ST9160821A-RK model (shown here) and not the ST9160821A. The difference is in the last two characters; the former is sold as a Retail Kit and comes in a well packed and sealed Seagate box, whilst the latter was meant for OEM distribution and is often sold with just bubble wrap packing. Those who bought the OEM ones often had various reliability issues, because the drive itself was damaged during shipping.

The first drive was significantly noisy. A replacement is better but you can still (barely) hear it, as if there is sand in the bearings. Compared to the all the drives for the laptops that I have, this drive noisier. Some people have rated it as whisper quiet. No such luck here. Otherwise the drive has been fine. It is faster than the stock 4200 RPM drive. I have had it only for about three months.

I needed this for an older Mac Mini, the old hd was dead, the Seagate fit exactly as the old hd and had worked perfectly since being installed. I receieved it when I was suppose to and It was well packed so that it would not be damaged in shipping.
