Summary: product was new and was sent via expediete shiipping as requested. My only concern is that considering pc makers do not use these hdd anymore it is a little expensive. you can get a 500gb sata hdd for the same price but since my laptop is almost 5 yrs old I was forced to get this type. My pc is still good enough to spend a 100$ on it but was only hoping to spend 75.
Summary: I have been using this drive for almost a year now, and it has performed very well. It is speedy, quiet, and worked straight out of the box. Migrating from my old hard drive was also a breeze thanks to Seagate's DiscWizard tool. The only niggle that I have is the drive's power-saving feature which I find too aggressive. It spins down after 2-3 minutes of inactivity.
Summary: The PS3 comes with a 60 GB Segate Momentus hard drive. I bought this 160 GB Segate Momentus thinking it would be an easy internal upgrade for the PS3. I was wrong and should have paid more attention. This is not a SATA. It is an Ultra ATA which means it has different connectors. My money is not wasted, though. When put into an enclosure, it makes an excellent external hard drive and the price is right.
Summary: I bought these to replace the 30GB IDE drives in 3 Dell D600's. I ghosted the drives and was up an running. These drives are quiet, and Using ADIA32 they are running at 108 Degrees F. I would recommend them to anyone with a laptop.
Summary: Bought this 2.5" PATA drive to replace the 40GB HDD in my daughters Dell D610 laptop. Put an image of her drive on this one and is was up and running. No problems to report after 1 months service.
Summary: Very good product, packaging was not wasteful, installation was easy, software was intuitive and easy to use. I have an older laptop that does not support this size of hard drive but, Disk Wizard (software included) installed a Dynamic Drive Overlay (DDO) and made everything a breeze.
Summary: The drive works as expected - there were no surprises on installation other than the BIOS on the circa 2002 Dell Inspiron 4150 laptop doesn't seem to see the full capacity. No problems though - Win XP sees it all. This is a 5400rpm drive so it's not going to be as zippy as a 7200rpm, but given the age of the laptop and the possible current draw and heat generation from a 7200rpm drive I decided to be conservative with a 5400rpm drive - still the increased areal density...
