Summary: I found some videos showing the replacement procedure, and that worked fine, it fit fine, the laptop booted up fine the windows install worked fine the packaging was unusual but worked fine to keep the harddrive secure while in storage/shipping but I could not find ANY info in box from manufacturer... nothing to register is there a warranty? Would have thought that would have been in the product container that is why I took off a star...
Summary: An average drive at an average price. Also, with an average speed. But boy, this thing is loud. If you own a silent laptop don't even think about buying it. Vibrations will shake your roof down and the hissing will eat your cats. Literally. Okay, it's not that bad, I won't get rid of it, can stay. But would've never bought it if I knew it's this loud.
Summary: Works good, but it is a very noisy HDD. In a way, you dont need any LED to show you the HDD status... you feel it by hearing the noise. Hopefully is more reliable compared with the old WD HDD that i had.
Be careful of Amazons return policy with hard drives

Summary: I have used Seagate hard drives for years and wanted to replace a Seagate 100GB in a Mac Book Pro with this one. As can happen with hard drives, the new one failed early on - 35 days after it had been purchased! This is not a complaint about Seagate drives - in my experience hard drives either fail early on or last for years Unfortunately, Amazon appear to have an unusual view of the returns aspects of the Sale of Goods Act - after 30 days it is the manufacturers fault.
Cons: После установки вин7 (макс),через пол года использования,при загрузке постоянно стало высвечиваться предупреждение о проверке диска. Не лечилось вообще. Сторонними программами или же переходом на 8 винду эта проблема исчезла. Пока все ок
Cons: год эксплуатации ноута, менее 4000 часов работы диска. Начал медленно умирать, жуткие тормоза в работе системы, откат на "ноль" не помог, после переустановки тормоза остались. Ошибки чтения, ошибки позиционирования, битые сектора. Третье моё разочарование в Seagate за последние 4 года. Диски нормально не живут более 2 лет при низкой нагрузке.
