I had to zero the drive out and format it but other than that it works great and I have had no real issues with it

  • Summary: I had some issues with this at first but only because it was formatted for a Win 7 system and I am running a Vista system. I had to zero the drive out and format it but other than that it works great and I have had no real issues with it. If you can find one I would recommend it.

  • Summary: I own over fifteen (15) Seagate internal drives rnaging from 15K SCSI to this 7.2K SATA and a Momentus XT SSA. This drive did not disappoint. Transfer of data was flawless and the firmware upgrade straight forward. Bonus was a great price.

Noisy

Soki, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this drive to replace a full 150 GB HDD also from Seagate (was the standard with my T500 Lenovo laptop). The drive was easy to install after cloning the old disk. So far (2 weeks) the drive is working fine, a bit faster than the previous one (normal) but is significantly more noisy.

Decent track record

Paul C Huang "Paul Huang", Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: When people ask me about hard drives, I always tell them: 'All drives are bad, some are worse.' Seagate 3.5" went from bad to worse, which started with the 7200.11-series, but the 2.5" Momentus line has not been affected by quality problem.

WHAT A PIECE OF GARBAGE!!!

Earl Reyes, Amazon
2 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this drive to upgrade the 250 GB OEM drive in my MacBook Pro. After I installed it, it worked fine for @ 3 months. Then it died. I shipped it back to Seagate and a few weeks later I had a replacement drive. After I installed it, it worked fine for @ 2 months. Then it died.

I won't buy this one again!

Daniel, Amazon
22 February 2011
  • Summary: Well just like others have said, It does start to die on you close to a year of having it. I started to get the warning that this drive was going to fail probably about 7 months after buying it. I feel like I have been ripped off for the price I bought it at on Jan 2010 but oh well what can you do.
