Summary: So my hard drive failed recently, and I needed a new one very fast as I use my computer daily for school. I paid two days shipping, and suddenly I notice that my order will take almost five days instead of the two day shipping I paid $35 for! Shame on you!
Summary: bought it to replace an older WD disk. Does the job, but was a little noisier. At first it was a bit annoying, after a while I got used to it, but still no reason for this. Nothing that would trouble you - but noticeable when using the disk in a very quiet room.
Summary: This item arrived in good shape as expected. I have had good results from all my orders and interfacing with Amazon.com, and this items in no different. I installed and has been running without a problem.
Summary: I bought this article for my samsung laptop, it was installed and working properly it's exactly the same of the the original in the lap, it was shipped and received according with the estimated time without delays.
Summary: I have purchased Hitachi Travelstar 2.5 inch 500GB 5400 RPM internal hard drive to replace the Fujitsu HD which came w/ MacBook (2006 model). Old one just simply died on me. Installation part was easy, however, during formatting, I kept getting "input/output error" But, it turns out it was not Hitachi HD problem, the disk utility CD from MAC was too outdated for this HD, according to my computer tech friend.
Summary: This hard drive is awesome. Since I have a ssd, I don't really care about the speed, all I want my hard drive is to be as quiet as possible. I tried hitachi travel star, western digital blue, and the toshiba one. Those are all really loud, very noticeable when using your computer in a quiet environment. This drive is very quiet, the noise is not noticeable at all. If you are looking for a quiet drive, this is the one.
Summary: I ordered two drives and they arrived both in the same brown bag! Dropped through door onto welcome mat. Glad I don't have a stone floor. Unbelievable packaging! Tested both and both formatted and work fine. I am an IT engineer of some 23 years and I think someone should say to the packers that these need a bit of bubble wrap at least. Great price and unusually thin drives.
Summary: The drive is great and only 7mm thick. It works perfectly. I only gave 4 stars as I wanted a 2009 version of the drive as I wished to use the circuit board to repair a failed hard drive. The sellers pictures show a 2009 version and they sent me a new one (2012 version).
