Noisy, Vibrate a lot and Temperature rises quickly
27 August 2010
Summary: I was hesitated to buy this drive but there have been a lot of positive feedback at Newegg lately. Thus I gave myself a try, especially with the recent cheap price + free shipping. I should have paid attention to all the negative reviews here at Amazon. Noisy: Bought it 2 weeks ago; installed it on Aug 19, 2010 to replace my 40GB Seagate Momentus 5400 RPM on one of my laptops. The drive is noisy to me; perhap I use it in my quiet home office, no TV, no one but myself.
Summary: Purchased the drive in March 2009 and worked fine in my Thinkpad T400 with WinXP for 8 months. Then in November 2009 computer was slow to boot up and began freezing randomly. Then windows wouldn't fully boot up and was barely able to run in safe mode. Ran PC Doctor 5 and disk surface scan failed. Ran CHKDSK and was unable to read many sectors and wasn't able to fix bad sectors. Drive just failed, presumably from bad sectors.
Excerpt: вчера купил себе это чудо вместо штатного на 250гиг. Отличия существенные. В скорости прибавил бук не тормазит. Но блин появился хороший шум и вибрация. Плюс если бук взять на руки и покачать из стороны в сторону то еще и скрежет появляется. Разачарован очень. Не советую покупать.
