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.
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.
Summary: I bought this to replace an 80GB Seagate that appeared to have failed. After a few days this new drive failed as well. It had been running for a few hours copying the old drive data over to it. I later figured out that the original drive was actually fine.
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!!!
Summary: I don't know if it is something about the laptop I am using, or maybe I am just hard on internal drives because of lugging the laptop around frequently, but I do not seem to be having good luck with the hard drives in this machine.
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!!
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.
