Summary: This is the stock drive that came with my Dell Latitude E6400 laptop and has been in it for over 3 years and has worked without issue to date. It may not be the fastest drive but it certainly has worked and been rather reliable. I have my Laptop on 24hrs a day. I run a lot of file transfers at night when I'm asleep and am on it constantly all day and let it run other programs to maintain my domains and other information throughout my work day.
Summary: It's often said of NFL cornerbacks that you can tell they're doing their job well if you never once hear their name during a broadcast. Because when that's the case, it means they're shutting down their opposing receiver and not allowing big plays or getting called for holding or interference penalties. I purchased this hard drive about a year ago when I started running out of space on my 40gb PS3.
