Good product but....

Summary: Good product and fast. It was well packaged unlike previous hard drives I have had from Amazon. A word of warning if you have an older SATA motherboard. It may not be recognised and no ammount of bios or driver updates will fix this. If your mobo is more than 4 years old it is pot luck whether it will work!
Summary: So far the drive has been great, I needed a sata drive for a new motherboard. These drives are good value for money although the price difference between this and the 1TB model is little. For speed and quietness its close between this and the Hitachi models I reckon. Only drawback with purchase - delivery seemed to take for ages.
Summary: It is a standard 500gb hard drive which works well and suprisingly fast, however it is quite noisy when it starts spinning. One problem i had was it didn't fit in my pc case, it seemed to be a couple of milimeters too wide. I'm not sure if it my case or the hard drive but it eventually went in after 'alot' of pushing.
Summary: bin zufrieden, aber nur 4 Sterne weil ich die Platte bestellen musste, da die vorige gleiche nach 3 Jahren kaputt ging. Das muss ja nicht sein, vergleichbare Produkte halten länger als 3 Jahre.
