Summary: I originally purchased this used on Amazon and sent it back because the spindle wouldn't spin up. I then purchased this one at full price and found I had the same problem. Turns out the drive needs 5V and 12V, but most if not all small external drive cases only supply 5 Volts because of the USB...
Harddrive Specs seem good, but size isn't for a Laptop

Summary: I really wanted this Harddrive so bad. All the Specs were something I wanted. I guess I can live with my 500/750GB Harddrives for now. In the description, the size of the HDD wasn't mentioned. So I put in in the HDD port and it didn't fit so now I'm returning it.
Summary: The drive failed after 6 months of moderate use. It's supposed to have 1.4M hours of MTBF and it costs 3 times more than say Samsung 1TB 2.5 inch drive. I probably have about 20 different hard drives all together in my home PCs, most of them been working for many years.
Summary: einfach ärgerlich, dass eine so schöne Festplatte dann doch nicht in den Notebook passt. mit knapp 15mm ist sie eben nicht in jeden Rechner einbaubar. Ärgerlich, dass einem das nicht schon hier auf der Katalogseite gesagt wird.
