  • Summary: Good price for the size.....
  • Pros: Lots of space, fast shipping as always by Newegg....Easy install, popped in HP Laptop installed XP and Vista and running smoothly
  • Cons: Not very quiet, you can hear the drive accessing data.......Hopefully won't be a problem later on, nothing a little music can't drown out.....

Great drive for the price

Joshua H., Newegg
7 April 2009
  • Summary: Only took an hour to run Acronis and backup my 100 gig and push it to the 500 gig. Had to boot to Vista and repair the startup because the boot loader failed but was very easy to get back up and running.
  • Pros: Newegg delivers once again! I ordered this drive last week and it arrived yesterday. It is replacing a Seagate 7200 RPM drive and my vista score went up from a 5.1 to a 5.5! Hopefully it helps keep my system cooler as well being 5400 RPM because T61p's are notorious for heating issues.

Great Drive

Jordan K., Newegg
2 April 2009
  • Summary: Perfect drive and the 500GB works great! I would highly recommend this to anyone who is upgrading their laptop drive!
  • Pros: This drive is great. I purchased it for my MacBook when I ran out of space on my 120GB drive. I hooked this up and installed OS X Leopard on it without any trouble. It Boots nice and quick and does not overheat. It was very easy to install and went right in. I am glad I picked this drive. I will ...
  • Cons: None so far that I can think of.

One of my better purchases

Billy e., Newegg
31 March 2009
  • Summary: This would be one of your better buys, some of the hard drives apparently are bad, but mine seems to be in pretty good shape.
  • Pros: - Fast speeds - Exactly what was described in the commentary. The hard drive is working wonderfully fast for me. It's much faster than my Hitachi 80GB SATA drive. I combined the power of a product and got to be able to save my 80gig :) Best thing is, it took only a weekend to get here.
  • Cons: Not buying it sooner. :P
