This drive is great--and works with legacy systems like Windows 9x, but yet can handle the latest version of Debian (a Gnu/Linux OS) with swap space on. Read/write speed is fast, even on an older 450 MHz notebook where I installed it. No bad sectors where found on this drive, and the pins were rigidly intact--and IDE drives in this shape are getting harder to find. I've used Maxtor and Seagate drives in the past, and I've learned to trust them--most of the time, they work--although like with any product, there are exceptions. As long as it's installed properly, it should work for whatever you need to use it for--and I would recommend it for older computers that don't use the SATA interface.

Edit: Be careful when relying on these drives, though. Within a few weeks, several files have not been readable because they've went corrupt. A quick disk check usually fixes the problem, but things don't always write to disk properly, or at least in the case of this drive, which is why it lost a star. I'd recommend backing up your data whenever possible and checking whatever filesystem is in use regularly.

The drive is quiet and seems fast enough on an old Dell XPS M140 2GHz Intel laptop. I have a personal rule to avoid putting money into old computers, but a friend recently gave me the laptop without a hard drive, and it seemed in excellent shape, so I decided to take the risk. Put the drive in, installed Linux Mint 13, and I am amazed by how well it all works. Having avoided Linux systems for the past few years, I am also amazed by how easy it is to use the new Linux Mint, but that's another story.

I deducted one point because of the drive's age and my doubts about the warranty. While it had never been used (I checked the internal SMART data), the drive's Seagate Date Code (10045) shows that my drive was manufactured almost three years ago, on July 29, 2009. When I checked the drive serial number with Seagate for warranty coverage, I got the same message as another commenter here: it is an OEM drive, not covered directly by Seagate. If the drive fails I suppose I'll email the vendor, but I did not see any warranty information. Hope it doesn't fail.

perfectly good drive, but for only about a month -- then died suddenly without warning, ouch. What's more, according to the Seagate site,

"The product you identified was sold as a system component. Please contact your place of purchase for service. Seagate sells many drives to direct OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) customers. These products are usually configured for the OEMs only, as components for their systems. You must contact your place of purchase for any warranty support on these drives."

I contacted the seller and hopefully they'll come through -- will update this review as that happens, or doesn't.

Regardless, I'm not generally a fan of Seagate drives, and wish I'd have paid a little more for a different one

I purchased this drive to replace a 40gb drive which had fried in an 8-yr old IBM Thinkpad (now Lenovo) T42 laptop. Most replacement drives in the marketplace are now SATA drives; the older technology IDE drives are getting scarce. I was fortunate to find this one; it arrived on time, well-packaged, and in perfect condition. But note..there was no retail Seagate box; the drive was packaged in an anti-static envelope only (typical of bulk drive purchases by the vendor). Seems to be working like a charm, but I've only had it for a few weeks. If problems develop, this review will be edited.

Purchased this hard drive to replace the one that failed in my Toshiba laptop. So far so good. Again, it's a good brand and a good price, and it shipped and arrived a lot sooner than I thought. It's also quiet and has a good amount of memory. I've had it for a few weeks and so far I am satisfied.

Bought this to replace an old Seagate drive on my previously dead G4 powerbook. Just installed it last night and seems to be working fine after a format and OS install.

I found this hard drive very acceptable. I installed it in my Apple iBook G4 without a problem and proceeded to install Leopard on to it without any problem.
