Summary: This resurrected an abused Acer Aspire 5740 laptop. This hard drive is the exact factory model. Easy install. I loaded windows 7 Ultimate. I haven't asked it to do much, but so far no conflicts. I'm happy.
Delivered on time.But was manufactured 3 yrs back.

Summary: Delivered on time.Packing was also good.The reason I gave 3 stars is that the manufacturing date was on 2011which is 3 years old. I am not sure if hitachi stopped manufacturing this model.I brought this one because it was the same model hd in my acer revo machine which crashed.Any one buying this...
Summary: Replaces one that had gone blotto in a friend's laptop. Dropped right in and took right off. How long it's going to last remains to be seen, but I'm quite well satisfied, and so is my friend. Sure beats getting a whole new laptop!
