Only if you know a lot about formatting hard drives

Summary: Not formatted with anything you need to actually install it. Techie husband said it should never have been sold this way because unless you know what you are doing to format it, it's not usable. Would not format in laptop, laptop would not recognize. Took forever to format it in a way that it would "take". We had to format it using the desktop and then install it in the laptop several times before it worked.. Didn't think we were ever going to get it to work.
Summary: Quite pleased with my purchase. The product was delivered within the time stipulated. I ordered but was still in doubt that the product would fit and solve my problem. It was just right and the computer is up and running as new again. I only spend $35.00 compared to the $300 I was about to spend on a new laptop. Thanks to my friend who instructed me to replace the hard drive instead of purchasing a new system.
Summary: After my last drive crashed, rather than replacing the whole laptop, I decided to just replace the drive. Took all of three minutes to remove and replace the drive. It now has all the necessary software loaded and systems are working smooth as glass.
