Seagate Momentus 7200 750 GB / 2.5 inch hard drive

Summary: This hard drive runs like a stripped-ass-ape. I love this HD. First: I am not a gamer so those game player issues do not apply to me. Find a gamer review. And do not drop your computer... I want speed, size, and simplicity. I wanted to install my own, first hard drive failure I have gone through.
Summary: I bought three of these drives across multiple vendors (two of them were stock with Asus laptops and a third from New Egg) and I've had a 100% failure rate with the last one dying about a month ago. Not that I trusted them before (I prefer Western Digital) but I would never touch Seagate again after this. Apparently their acquisition of Maxtor brought with it their high failure rate.
Summary: I received the item as expected. Just had the time to istall it in my DELL Latitude D830, install the OS and after a few days of working it started making a "tic tic" noise and brokens. It's no more readable from BIOS or live OS starting from CD, it's useless. And no returnable. I'm wondering if Amazon intends to do something about this inconvenience or just took the money for selling a failed item.
Summary: Pulled a smaller 7200rpm drive out of an enclosure to use in a system as a boot drive, replaced it with this. don't need random access in a usb drive, this was an obvious choice. big, quiet, low power, fast sequentials, exactly what i needed.
Pros: cheap, slim (7mm), 500gb, good sequential speeds, low power usage
