Summary: A great HHD, well made and function as designed. I used this drive with a USB-3 external enclosure because I wanted the higher speed possible with the combination. I love it and would recommend this to anyone. While I didn't use it in my laptop, it would certainly fit and function well in it.
Summary: I recently build a HTPC which needed a 2.5" hard drive. I have used Seagate for decades on new PC's or replacing other manufacturers failures. Quality has always been good for me. My computers are turned on and off every day. I can say I have never lost a Seagate in all the years I have been building PC's for myself and friends. I recommend this manufacturer.
