Summary: 5 months after purchasing this HD and installing it with no issues, I woke up in the middle of the night to the clicking sounds of massive hardware failure. No clue if it was a bad drive or not, but I wouldn't buy a Seagate again!
Summary: I bought this to replace the drive in my ASUS 1000H Netbook when the original died an agonizing death when a paper weight dropped onto the computer. This item plugged strait in, no adapter necessary. I reloaded the original OS from a flash drive. A good link to have for that maybe is [...] . Computer works fine. The delivery was a day early, the packaging maybe excessive. A packed box, packed inside a large box with air cushions.
Summary: Needed to replace a busted hardrive for an older Acer notebook. Installed easily, recognized easily, and laptop up and running after restore. The price was right and the specs were slightly better than the replaced drive. Not cutting edge HD technology, but just what I was looking for.
Summary: I bought this drive to replace one in a laptop that had failed. It installed flawlessly and has been running well since. Probably not the optimum performance but for the price I think it's great.
Summary: I used this to replace my old WD 250GB drive that got the "click of death". So far: Pros: -Fast enough for my needs--maybe a little slower becuase of RPM and cache size but not too much -It took less than an hour to install Vista Home if that gives you an idea of transfer speed -Great packaging--anti-static bag and recyclable plastic "holders" to keep it centered in the box--minimal and sufficient -Quiet.
Summary: The 60 GB Seagate drive in my daughter's MacBook was giving signs of failing. I ordered the Seagate 160 GB drive and it was delivered within three days without special delivery. The installation was straight forward and since I had backed up the contents of the old drive, after a reformat and loading in the Mac OS the rest was easy. The new drive appears to perform flawlessly.
