Solved my problems after trying a Western Dig HD

Jon, Amazon
30 December 2011
  • Summary: My late 2008 MacBook Pro 3.1 needed a larger hard drive. My first choice was a 500 GB WD Scorpion Blue HD which was highly rated in general, but as I found out later, did not work well with the proprietary Apple disc controller software on this laptop version. I had to return the WD drive because it would endlessly spool up and down and go through enormous numbers of disc cycling even when the laptop was idle.

Realllly loud

Shariffe Love, Amazon

  • Summary: Im using this in my ps3 right now and when it gets under high effort this thing sounds like my printer! but other than that, it does what its supposed to do which is back up my damn files. Would I go with something else? ehhh probably, it only gets loud when its under stress, so yeah, if noise is a factor for you, go ahead but if u could care less, this is a go! edit; after using this a bit more.

Replacement drive for dodgy laptop

toptone "TopTone", Amazon
1 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this as a cheap replacement for a laptop hard drive that was playing up after a minor accident! Fortunately that drive was still accessible for file recovery on removal although it wouldn't boot the laptop. I recovered all the essential stuff and had a mirror image on another drive that was only a few weeks old. This unit was delivered promptly and was easy to install using the old carriage.

  • 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.

500GB Laptop drive increases speed

dBH, Amazon
26 March 2013
  • 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.
