Summary: I hit my laptop because I got real angry. I guess I shook the hard drive so bad that my Windows 8 computer was done with. I bought this and put it in. I tried to put windows 8 back on. Some HP propriatory stuff would not let me do it with this hard drive. Downloaded Linux Ubuntu on my brothers computer and put it on this hard drive. My dead computer is alive again with Linux and this hard drive!!! Do the same and it can fix your broken Windows laptop.
Summary: This is the same model HDD that came in my Lenovo V570. I've run it almost daily for four years and it's still going strong. I never abuse my computers, but I don't just surf the net and check emails either. I do a lot of audio editing, and I also rip DVDs, which is CPU intensive and tends to generate a lot of heat in the laptop, even with a cooling pad, which I always use. I decided to purchase a few of these as emergency extras for down the road, "just in case".
