Summary: Warning!!!! If you use Adobe or any other Graphic design program do not use this type of Hard Drive. You need to read Adobes forums on HDs and what they have found with even SSDs. This was one of the worst HDs I have ever used and wont be using a Seagate again, I am actually liking the longevity of...
Summary: This hard drive had light usage on a laptop that was meant for leisure purposes. Meaning I did not use it for school or work, and it was used 4-5 days a week. A hard drive should never fail that fast!
Do NOT expect Seagate to replace or repair this drive when it fails.

Summary: I bought two of these drives. Both started acting up with bad sectors. One failed completely within a couple of months of purchase.

Summary: Disk was recognized by bios, but I was unable to make it work. Couldn't install windows on it, tried disconnecting other disks but the process did't even begin. Using it as slave always says that was not formatted. Trying to format the disk showed a MBR error.
Summary: I have installed memory and hard drives before, although in desktops, and this was my first update to a laptop. However, I think I did my homework, and I installed the hard drive only to have it throw status 0xc00000e, that the computer could not communicate with the hard drive.
Summary: It lasted about 6 months in my 2011 macbook. Then one day I got the dreaded gray screen of death. Luckily I had everything backed up. Still not a fun experience. I've read enough reviews now to realize that these drives have a higher than normal fail rate (both in the flash memory seizing and the...
Summary: Worked great as a 2nd drive in my 2011 MacBook Pro. Then, 5 months into it, it started randomly turning off and required a reboot for Mac to recognize it. Then it disappeared completely and wouldn't come back up. I pulled it and hooked it up to my sata hd drive reader and I heard drive clicking..
Summary: My old HD was getting a bit long in the tooth and it was time both for more space and a newer HD. This seemed like the perfect drive. It was FAST, it felt like a brand new laptop. Everything was great except it failed within a month.
