Large for laptop drive but slow seek speeds

Lee H., Newegg
19 January 2012
  • Summary: I got this to replace a 160gb 7200rpm drive I mistakenly bought for a Mac Mini - I had meant to buy a larger drive. The drive fit with some coaxing into the Mini but it was a tight fit.
  • Pros: Definitely big for a laptop drive. Priced right.
  • Cons: Non-standard height doesn't fit into some laptops. Slow seek times cause sub-par user experience.

seemed like a good buy...

Mark B., Newegg
18 October 2011
  • Summary: After having this drive (1TB 12.5mm 2.5" notebook drive) in my 13" 2010 Macbook Pro Unibody for about 3 months, it crashed on me. Unfortunately I had not done a backup for about 2 months, so I lost a fair amount of data.
  • Pros: HUGE storage for a laptop! Easy install
  • Cons: Drive is kind of slow

Bare Drive - No kidding

G. Michael, Amazon
15 July 2011
  • Summary: Bare Drive - No kidding. That's pretty much all that was in the box. Not even a receipt, which would have been nice (hence only 4 stars). Pretty fast delivery. Other than that, it works.

Excellent fit in 15" MBP

Brent Mccusker, Amazon
15 July 2011
  • Summary: Exceptionally easy installation into a 15.4" Macbook Pro. This should fit in the newest MBPs as well as 2010 MBPs. The 1tb capacity is a dream for the data-heavy traveller.

Doesn't fit older (>2 yr old) laptops

Thomas G. Kohn, Amazon
15 July 2011
  • Summary: I have no experience with the data performance, since it couldn't fit into the slot of my Dell laptop. That additional 0.1 inch thickness is a killer.

Terrible Experience

A. Wright, Amazon
15 July 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this to max out my mid 2009 MacBook Pro. I was hesitant to tinker as I have had no problems in 2 years. For the first week it worked great. the I started getting slow downs and system hang ups. I used tech tools deluxe and found hundreds of bad sectors.

Not great for my Macbook Pro

Tigars, Amazon
15 July 2011
  • Summary: I ordered one to install in my MacBook Pro and it worked rather slowly for two weeks until it eventually failed with white screen of death. I then reinstall from scratch (I had imaged it with Clonezilla at first) doing all update and recovering with time machine.
