Fast and reliable (2 years of manufacture warranty!)

Summary: This was a replacement of the old Toshiba 80GB. Working well, no bad sectors, checked with Seatools and HDD Regenerator. There is no information about warranty, so, I sent a question to the seller. I got answer: 1 year, but, in fact he was wrong. The manufacturer warranty is 2 years for this drive, checked and verified by s/n on this web: [...
Summary: This is a great low noise and low heat drive. It worked great in my HP 11.6" notebook computer. I had a drive in there that generated a lot of heat which suggested to me that it wasn't very "green." The hard drive uses up most of the battery in your laptop so if you can afford one, get an SSD if you can. This drive however extended the battery life to over 6 hours from just 3 or 4. The old drive vibrated annoying as well and this one is silent and vibration free.
Summary: Nowhere in the description does it make any mention of it being recertified. This makes a huge difference in its value, warranty and quality when considering you can get new drives for a couple of pounds more. Too expensive for what it is.
Summary: I recieved the product around 3 days after ordering, slid it into the Sony PlayStation 3 Replacement Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Mounting Bracket and it works perfectly with my PS3 Super Slim which was just a 12gb, but now a 500gb!
Summary: I bought this drive to replace the 120GB drive in my Playstation 3. It arrived on time and was very easy to fit and install. It works a treat so now I can get all my Playstation Plus games on my internal drive!
Summary: I bought this to plug into an old SKY+ box. Used with a suitable interface adapter (box PATA to disk SATA) it works very well. Quiet, cool and huge amount of space compared to the 80mb original.
