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...
Amazon offers this exact same hard drive for $69.99 under a slightly different name

Summary: This is overpriced at $100. I am holding an unopened copy of this hard drive in my hand. On one side it is labelled HDD 5K500 B-500. On the other is is marked "Hitachi OA57915." Amazon sells the "OA 57915" for as little as $69.99.
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.
