Lasted 2.5 years. Just a year or two shy of acceptable.

Summary: This review is fairly short. The drive was a good price and purchased late december 2011. Today, near july 2014, 2 years and 7 months later, my sister calls me asking me about hard drive replacement because hers is broken. Yes it was placed in a laptop, so more jostling. But the rest of the laptop has lasted for this drive and another before, so it is not so great that this guy died. I'd give it 2.5 stars, but that is not an option.
Summary: I've been using this for just over a month and it's great a lot of space for a great price. The one I bought is refurb and I still got a warranty on it. Like I said it works good so far. It's very quiet as well.
Summary: Easy to install in my Dell E1505 laptop. booted up no problems. I imaged it from my old drive first (using an ubuntu live disk) and it booted right up. of course, the errors copied over too, so I ended up re-installing windows and re-formatting anyhow...
Great drive that does exactly what it's supposed to

Summary: Bought this drive for my wife's laptop after her HD ran out of space. This one has been working well over a year (maybe a year and a half?) without issue. Installed and started up just like it was supposed to.
