Summary: The hard disk arrived on time, but a scan of the drive with gateway's gwscan utility showed issues with last 20GB of the usable storage. I was able to use the remaining capacity for now, but it is a bit concerning as to how long will it last.
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 please check the manufacturing date before buying.
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!
Summary: This HD died after one year with no warning. Not even a hiccup. Until then, it was a nice little drive. 1 year is not long enough. Enough people have had this problem that I would NEVER purchase it again.
