  • Summary: So far I have not had any problems with its operation. OK for the laptop that I use and I think I was right to buy two.

I can't believe how much faster this drive was over the Acer OEM drive

  • Summary: Well worth the money! If I known it would have been that much better I would have replaced the WD drive that came with the laptop before it died! Very happy!

Hitachi Deskstar 7k500 IDE hard drive

D. Conklin, Amazon
3 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this used, as it was wiped clean by the Amazon seller. It took a bit to get my computer to see the drive. I gather that is because I am used to see only 1 jumper and this has 2. So after sorting thru all the options per my pc, I finally got it to work and used Acronis Disk Director to transfer my data from existing drive to this. Since then no issues.

Upgraded X220, works great

D. Pates, Amazon
16 October 2013
  • Summary: I just received this drive today, and transferred my X220's /home filesystem over to it. Brought the machine up, and everything is going swimmingly. Fit perfectly inside the internal bay, without any case hacking. Hdparm clocks its read speed at over 120 MB/sec. SMART data shows no sector reallocation or anything else unexpected. I am very happy with this. Edit: Also, just checked 'hdparm -I' and dmesg output; it is in fact linked at SATA3 6.0Gbps speed. Lovely.

Runs About 12% Faster Than My 320 gb SATA II Drive

MWebb, Amazon
7 August 2012
  • Summary: This is a 7.0mm high drive compared to the standard, and much more common, 9.5 mm high drives (some very large capacity laptop drives are even taller than that). That means this will fit in the ultra-thin, current-design Acer ao725 and Acer ao756, in the Asus x101ch, and in the modern crop of "Ultrabooks". This will also fit in recent MacBook Pro's which generally use a "side pin" system to "suspend" the harddrive in the airspace, eliminating the need for any spacer.

Great Drive for MacBook Pro

Bryan E., Newegg
10 May 2010
  • Summary: I was looking to upgrade to the Samsung 640gb 5400rpm then stumbled upon this one for $64..... couldn't pass it up. So aside from the original plans being altered I think I came out ahead and I will upgrade again when 1Tb is in price/size range.
  • Pros: I bought at another location (would have rather purchased here) for $64, installed in 13" Macbook Pro mid 2009 Unibody using Carbon Copy Cloner, took about 1 hour 15 minutes to complete everything including install... here are the Xbench Scores:
  • Cons: I bought it elsewhere and I am a fan of Newegg so this was a con......

PS 3 Finally upgraded

Jody L., Newegg
12 March 2010
  • Pros: Well I own the Fat/Big/First relase of the PS3 with 60GB and had filled it up quite fast. I did not see many reviews on this product for upgrading PS3 on here so I was nervous if it would work as I am not Tech Savy. I was amazed at how easy it was to install and now I have 410GB so I'm very happy no more erasing game saves to download a demo.
  • Cons: N/A works great.

1.5Gb/s vs 3.0Gb/s

Steven J., Newegg
19 February 2010
  • Summary: To all the MacBook users out there that claimed this disk was DOA, do a little homework and realize that this disk comes pre-configured to 3.0Gb/s, which will not work in many MacBooks and Pros because they only support 1.5Gb/s SATA. TIP: Download the Hitachi Feature Tool (boot time program) in order to configure the disk to 1.5Gb/s. You can also disable the stupid power savings which kinda slows it down (because it idles to quickly).
  • Pros: So far so good. Only a small bit quicker than my WD Scorpio Black 320GB 7200rpm, but quieter and much cooler. Was recognized instantly because my notebook is 3.0GB/S CAPABLE, unlike many MacBooks. (Disk can be configured to 1.5Gb/s though, for you Mac fans)
  • Cons: None Yet
