Summary: A good hard-drive. Operation was quiet then most mechanical laptop drives. In terms of storage space, it cost much cheaper than an equivalent 300Gb SSD. However, my SSD was much lighter, much quieter, did not emit large amount of heat and was much more responsive than the Travelstar.
fit into my hp g50133us laptop no problem and replaced a corrupted seagate

Summary: working for now. i like that its thinner yet still fits probably has a little more breathing room. was nice to go from 250gb to 320gb for a cheap price of less than $50.. I WILL update this review though if it craps out on me in the next 2 years or so.
