Summary: bought two of these hard drive for the computer requires them. after purchasing I am told that they only have one left in stock. the refund was prompt, but i was told i would be contacted when they received more. never heard anything. came online to see he put more for sale at double the cost. found same drives on another popular E site for eleven dollars and some change.. and it's a brand new one. Poor business practices, and not what should be represented on this site.
Summary: New old stock. Purchased as backup for drive 3 year old laptop. Drive is several years old, but has not been used (SMART data shows 0 run hours). OEM warranty is expired, so you may want to purchase a warranty. Drive formatted with no errors and works great.
Summary: This item is as described and is still working months later. I bought a exact replacement for my computer because I wanted the computer to have all the original equipment if I were to sell it.
Summary: Bought this used. It worked but ONLY AFTER I removed the partitions from the previous owner and then, formatted before I could install windows. The drive was only as good as the seller. He likely knew the drive was bad so dumped it to make money at someone else's expense. A couple of weeks after going to all the trouble to make the drive work, it started making noise and totally died. I will try for a refund but it likely won't happen.
Summary: The HDD was identical to the OEM drive being replaced. The simple installation process followed was in HP's Notebook PC User Guide. The laborious segment was restoring the System Image from 10 DVDs.
