Summary: this is a very fast drive in the right medium. in a usb3 icybox dock i was able to write to it at 65MB/s. and copy from it at 80MB/s. in a orico usb3 2588 portable caddy speeds were 30MB/s. the drive is also very thin if that is a requirement you have.
Summary: My Fujitsu laptop had a 320GB 5,400rpm drive and was working fine. Boot up time on Windows 8 was approx. 60sec. I wanted a larger drive and hopefully a faster one so purchased the Hitachi Travelstar 500GB which runs at 7,200rpm. Boot up is now aprox 30 sec. with this drive and of course it has extra storage. A clean install may have increased the speed a little but most of the improvement is the new drive.
Summary: This Hitachi 500GB drive is the same brand as was inside our PS3 (80GB) from new. We bought this solely to upgrade our Ps3; it would work in any modern laptop. I backed up the system first using the ps3's backup feature saving via usb lead to an old Seagate free agent desktop hard disk with a FAT32 partition.
Summary: Hallo! entgegen einigen Veröffentlichungen hat die Platte nicht die Sektorbreite 512 sondern 512e ! das macht sich bei Rücksicherungen bemerkbar, weil W7 z.B. einige Fehler aufweist - muss erst angepasst werden, weil die pysikalische Sektorbreite 4096 ist.
