Replacement Drive on Alienware m17 R1 - fit fine and works well

Summary: I used this to replace a fried drive in an Alienware m17 R1 that I repaired for a friend. As near as I could tell, this is the same drive the manufacturer used, but perhaps a year or two different vintage. It worked fine. Note, the original drive lasted about 4-5 years with no issues.
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.
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.
