Summary: I bought this to repair a laptop that belonged to a co-workers son. It was compatible for the Compaq laptop. Installed easily and I had the laptop back up and running in no time. (well with the exception of the hours of Windows Updates that had to be installed) It was far cheaper to buy this thru amazon then to purchase from local stores, definitely cheaper than direct from Compaq. The HD operates quick and quietly. No issues with it so far.
Summary: In all honesty I was looking for a larger Hard Drive to replace my internal laptop drive but since the 1TB 2.5" only comes in 12.5mm thickness and most laptops only fit 9.5mm thickness this was the next best option. I'd recommend this to anyone that can take advantage of the security features. My laptop has the option of using boot passwords which locks your drive until you enter your password even before the Operating System starts.
Summary: This is a great upgrade for your PS3. I have plenty of room on my PS3 now and it is definately faster than the other 5200rpm drives out there on the market. Be warned though, the upgrade process is not as straight forward as they make out on youTube. Once installed you will probably find that you need update data from a USB HDD or stick. Once you have downloaded it from a computer you can perform a format and begin the restore process.
Usual great Seagate quality let down by terrible packaging

Summary: If you're reading this, you already know everything you need to about this drive. The important thing to know with this item is that it will be posted in a padded envelope. Now imagine what an envelope goes through when it passes through the infrastructure that is Royal Mail. Not the ideal environment for a hard drive. Hopefully they'll start posting them in boxes with, you know, padding.
Summary: I bought this to replace my SMART failing HDD in my 13.3" White MacBook a few months ago, and have noticed several things, itemised here for clarity: 1: Boot times have been reduced by about a 1/3. Very welcome, says I. 2: Increased storage is a godsend. Hello Win7! 3: Battery drains ever-so-slightly faster, but read-write speeds are much quicker. An ample trade-off for a photographer like me.
Summary: Ich habe Ende 2009 meine 250GB / 5.400rpm Festplatte gegen diese getauscht und der Geschwindigkeitsvorteil ist direkt spürbar. Nächste Woche kommt eine 500GB Festplatte in den Laptop und die 320 GB HDD als Systemplatte in meinen Fileserver. Negativ: aktuell viel zu teuer.
Summary: Im Vergleich mit meiner "einfachen" Festplatte, die im Netbook verbaut war, arbeitet diese mit einem deutlich hörbaren Geräusch. Klar, ist ja auch schneller, aber wenn sie ruhig ihren Dienst täte, wäre es mir lieber.... Bisher hatte ich sonst keine Probleme mit der Platte. Beim nächsten Mal kauf ich mir aber eine, die ruhiger ist...
