Summary: I used Crucials hardware scanner to select both upgraded memory and a higher capacity hard drive for my new (refurb) laptop. This harddrive was selected as a fit/match and when I got it, I used EZ-GIG to clone my hard drive. However, when I opened my laptop (never having done so before, since Crucial has always been reliable in the past) I discovered that my laptop took a 1.8" drive, and not the 2.5" I bought.
Summary: Since the drive died so fast i am a bit disappointed. It happened right after the 30 day warranty with NCIX was over so now i have to wait 20 days to RMA with Seagate plus pay shipping. Should have gone with WD Black to begin with.
Pros: Faster then my old WD Blue 5400RPM which it took out of the Dell Inspiron 1545
Summary: I know that there is a discrepancy between the 320gb selling name and the calculated sectors, cylinder, bytes whatever... but by 20gb, it is a little bit far. I'm a little bit disappointed, but the price paid make me less sad so it is okay.
Summary: I chose to buy it for my ps3 when it was on sale. It works great and I've had no problems with it so far. I wanted to see the difference between the 5400 and 7200 drives on the ps3 and it's not noticeable. For me, so far, I haven' been able to notice the difference between a 5400 and 7200 hard drive on the ps3 but supposedly the load times are faster.
Pros: Faster than most standard(5400rpm) drives since its 7200, Fits into ps3 hard drive and most laptops, Reliable
