Summary: I had this drive for about a year and a half, and it is finally met its end. Everything was fine one day, and the next morning I woke up to a corrupted Windows. I reformatted and reinstalled windows.
Summary: I got this Drive in Nov 2010 for my dell D620 laptop with 2 gig ram 1.83ghz processor running windows XP on a 7200rpm HHD drive. When I got the drive I installed Win 7. I was having issues from the get go. Win 7 would never shut down properly.
Summary: Less than 6 months into using it, the drive is failing and disappearing from my system consistently 4 minutes after booting. I've diagnosed the issue in multiple builds and found it's a drive problem; not cables, ports, OS, etc.
