Summary: The first problem that I encountered with this disk was that it is larger than the original disk of my Toshiba laptop - by about 2mm. It would not fit inside the disk tray. I had to find a temporary workaround so that I can test the performance of the disk itself.
Summary: It arrived fast, was exactly as described. I installed it replaced the o/s. had it up and running in about3 hours. It is exactly the same size an the oem. Very happy with it so far. They are very hard to find now especially new and this appears to be new or at least unused.
Summary: I search high and low for an IDE hard drive for a laptop. It was great when I found this one loaded my OS did my updates worked like a charm. May not be the biggest in storage but it's fast and works great. Gave new life to my old laptop.
