Drive Runs Noticably Hot in a MacBook Pro

jjgent, Amazon
5 November 2012
  • Summary: I have always been a Seagate guy, so I bought this drive to replace the stock drive in my Mid-2009, 17" MacBook Pro. As soon as I purchase and installed the drive, I noticed that the entire corner where the drive was housed within the case (to the left of the trackpad), was very warm. After installing iStat, I realized that the drive was running at about 105-110*F idle.

Brought 4 - one died within 5 minutes

Jonathan B, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought four of these drives to use to transfer photos/video while on the road. Within five minutes of turning it on, one of them had already died. Luckily Amazon took it back without any hassle and sent me a new one. However, I'm still weary about using these for important data.

it's loud.

Dude, Amazon
4 August 2009
  • Summary: I guess I never had a 'loud' HDD before. Because when I'd read reviews, I couldn't understand why people made such a big deal of the 'noise' of a HDD. I mean - they're all quiet, right? Well. This one is loud, and it's annoying to sit at a computer and listen to this for more than a few minutes!!! Sounds like very quiet radio static. I replaced an internal HDD on my dell laptop and had no problems.

Misleading Description

Mal, Amazon
28 August 2013
  • Summary: Just received this item in post in a jiffy bag with no additional protection. There is no mention on the Amazon Website that this is a recertified disc and not new. I will install it but if any problems arise it will be going back!!

Received Old Re-Manufactured Drive

Spiff, Amazon
31 March 2013
  • Summary: I ordered what appeard to be a "too good to be true" offer. It turned out that it was. The item was sold as a brand new Seagate Momentus 750gb 7200rpm SATA hard drive. It was the right item but it had a sticker on it that showed that the drive was remanufactured by someone other than Seagate. The drive had what appeared to be a ding in the aluminum chasis which perhaps meant that it had met with an accident sometime in the past.

Nach 13 Monaten Totalausfall

voho69, Amazon
13 July 2013
  • Summary: läuft verhältnismäßig ruhig und fällt bei den Zugriffszeiten werde positiv noch negativ aus dem Rahmen. Auch die Temperatur scheint nicht höher als die der originalen 320 GB Platte. (immer im Vergleich zu Serienplatte des MacBook Pro aus 2009) Allerdings dreht sich nach 13 Monaten die Platte nicht mehr. Das bedeutet Totalausfall! Garantiefall direkt über Hersteller eingeleitet. Alte Platte musste eingesendet werden - leider, mit den Daten auf der Platte.
