Summary: This was purchased to replace a similar drive in my Dell laptop, more space was required and this seemed a good choice. It came in excellent packaging and fitted quickly (as you would expect) to the laptop. It is quiet in operation and as fast as the old one, they are both 7200 rpm disks. Too early to say about reliability, but I have another Seagate which is a few years old and has proved to be a fast and quiet drive.
Summary: Cheap, good build, and quiet. Fast access with good read and write speed. I bought it to replace a broken drive in my Acer Laptop, it went straight in with no problems and I was up and running again in no time at all. OS install went perfectly, found the drive straight away. I would recommend it.
Summary: Having bought this drive which has great reviews and ratings as a back up drive, i am having trouble with compatibility issues with windows 7. Although it is not the drive's fault i am at the moment unable to comment on its effectiveness so will give it four stars.
Summary: this hardrive is of good quality i have had it replace my 179 gb drive in my sony viao I have installed it but the only thing I didnt take in consideration is that it would take back the 179 gb of my original drive and the other 279 gb would show as a seperate drive( even though it is supposed to be 500 gb 41gb is for system settings or something like that so you only get 459gb)even still it is a bigger storage than my original 179gb so i was happy i would say though if...
Summary: I got this drive to replace the 160GB drive in my macbook pro. Backup and installation were all fine. The drive fit in perfectly, screws tightened without any 'nastiness', laptop started up without any glitches. Performance is noticeably better. Program access times are faster and sites on my localhost seem to be pulled up quicker. The only downside is this drive is definitely noisier than the original Hitachi one that came in the laptop.
Excerpt: поставил на замену Seagate 5400.2 80 Gb. Работу винта можно почувствовать только положа руки на ноут, но вибрация очень слабая. Температура при работе 39град, т.е. оч хорошо. Ожидал от 7200 и 16 Мб кеша большего. Может быть это из-за контроллера SATA-1 в ноуте. Ноут использую для работы с графикой и верстки, прирост быстродействия в том же фотошопе небольшой. Одно дело бенчмарки, а другое - собственные ощущения при работе каждый день.
Pros: большая емкость, 7200 оборотов при низком потреблении мощ-ти, 4-е поколение
Summary: Snabb hårddisk. Presterar 70mb per sekund gentemot usb 3.0 extern med hastighet 5400RPM, 3,5". Väsnas en del men inte mer än andra hårddiskar som har 7200rpm. märker ingen skillnad i batteritid gentemot 5400rpm!
