Summary: Don't ever buy from seagate. Their hardware is unreliable and only 3 years RMA. They don't believe their own work and only offer 3 years RMA. I hate the fact that I have chosen them over a different manufacturer.
Pros: Huge Useless Storage
Cons: I bought a pair back in 2010 on sale to use later in a laptop. I have recently opened the box to upgrade my laptop and the hard drives don't work. It says that windows can't format the drive and eventually the drive turns off. Now I checked the RMA and I'm 20 days past warranty. Faack Seagate for...
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. As of 10MARCH2015, the HDD has performed without failure. No S.M.A.R.T. errors have been posted.
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.
F+ for price gauging and not having in stock when buyer purchases. Poor seller. will not recommend

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.
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.
