Summary: I bought this HDD on September 2008 and it still going on after 5 years. This HDD do not make much noise due to QuiteStep feature. For 5400rpm it is showing very good performance. It is also easy to install depending on your make and model of laptop. I will always buy Seagate product.

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: 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
Summary: I have quite a few of these (about 16) and so far have not had any failures (some are 3 years old). If you don't have a need for the speed of SSDs or want to spend as much money as they cost, these are a good low-cost alternative.
