Summary: I wanted to upgrade the drive in my MacBook Pro for a larger model so chose this Hitachi drive. Apple often use Hitachi drives themselves in their laptops and the one in mine was an Hitachi. I cloned the internal drive to this new Hitachi, swapped drives and turned on and everything was as it had been but I now had more space to use. If anything this drive may be a tad faster than the original one.
Hitachi Travelstar 7K500 HTS725025A9A364 250 GB: Data quietly secure
16 January 2011
Summary: Some time ago I wrote about the new network storage device I had installed in order to secure the data entrusted to it for our household computers. The Synology DS409slim DiskStation is a network attached storage server which replaces the data backup and storage functionality for which I had previously used for around five years a Buffalo Technology LinkStation 250GB.
Summary: Nice and quick hdd, a bit noisey but it is normal for 7200rpm hdd, my laptop's response speed increased and it feels nice powerrrrrr :) Performance rating in my case went up from 5,2 to 5,9 (win 7 32bit) , i owned Hitachi 250gb 5400rpm hdd, it was nice as well but this is beter, write/read speed seems increased as well, in one word it's confortable. Seller dispatched quick but only thing that coud be better is packing.
Summary: Bought this item to replace the internal hd of my white MacBook (early 2008 release). I removed the old hard-drive, and replaced it with the new one (very easy operation), then performed the back-up using time-machine. Everything went smoothly and I now have 500 GB of storage! The hard-drive is fast and makes no noise. It's a great hard-drive, I think this is the same kind of hard-drives that Apple puts in their laptop. So get it, you won't regret it!
Summary: Had to rebuild Windows on my Dell Vostro 1700 laptop so took chance to swop existing 2 x 160Gb drives for 2x 500Gb drives. Put existing drives into external USB casings so could go back if need be - otherwise 2 portable external drives now available! New drives installed without problem - they run quietly and for a very reasonable cost I have a laptop with enough space for a good while.
