Summary: Item lasted one week past the replacement window of time. We started having issues with it right as the warranty was getting ready to expire, but thought it could be fixed. We paid $104.99, so I wouldn't recommend this product.
Summary: Constantly runs at full load, even if the computer is sitting idle. I cannot stress how bad this hard drive is and I don't know why I bought it especially hearing many things about the quality (or lack thereof) of Seagate hard drives. They last a year at best, though this one has lasted a total of 8 months, which is absurd.
Excerpt: This used to be a great product when it was the only choice. I will not recommend this product unless you plan not to move it around.Laptop computer should not be made with cheap material and especially not with parts that move in order to operate. Solid state drives are my choice.
Summary: I ordered a new hard drive, and the one I received crashed and burned within a day. The day of installation I started receiving a series of kernel stop errors (SE Code 0X0000007A), then the thing went dead. At that point, an HP system diagnostic returned the message "Hard disk does not exist." Total junk.
