Summary: Bought it to replace the crashed drive on a Dell 8100. It fit perfectly and was no trouble to install. Remember, you need the operating system disks or your restore disk if this is going to be your boot drive. I bought another one to install for a backup drive. I think these are a really good value.
Generic drive. SSD should be considered if speed is important, otherwise get this if you have found a great price

Summary: In todays market all HDD's basically feel the same. Its hard to remember which drives last longer, and performance is not worth the effort to compare. I have 11 hard drives on my main workstation (5 in an array, an SSD boot, and 5 externals for different reasons) and I can never remember which ones has done well - some have been replaced over the years. I will use this moment to complain about 2TB and up drives...
Summary: This hard drive was sold by Amazon, came in the retail box and was shipped fast...2 day prime! I had no troubles installing the hard drive and loading Windows 7. This was for an older IBM desktop with a dual core processor, I replaced the older hard drive as it was getting full and over 5 yrs old. I immediately noticed a nice speed increase (though some of that is due to Windows being fresh).
Summary: I have an external dock for this drive. I use it to transfer files when friends buy a new computer. I doubt I'll ever need to worry about capacity, which was an occasional problem when using a USB stick.
