Summary: I bought this for my old Toshiba Satellite 1415-S105 and have been using it for a couple of years now. I don't even know if you can still get this Seagate drive. It seemed like an IDE drive of this type was hard to find when I bought it. It has been working fine. On some operations I hear a "clunking" sound that I don't think the old, original Toshiba disk made, but this Seagate disk still working so I guess that's just a sound this drive occasionally makes.
Summary: I needed a new IDE laptop hard drive and this seemed to be just the thing i needed, however the drive I received was a SATA drive, It was also used and still had the laptop tray attached to it. Oh and one more thing, It was sent to me USPS, loose, in a cushion mailer. I have to idea if the drive worked or not, but the shiping leaves me highly doubtful.
Summary: I bought three of these drives and all three have already started showing signs of failure after a purchase from 2 years ago. How sad. Seagate USED TO make good reliable inexpensive drives. You could purchase 2, 3 or more and build a RAID-drive and have all the resilience in your storage you could possibly need. Now Seagate and Western Digital are fighting quality control issues again, like they were 15-20 years ago.
Summary: Works like a charm. Installed in an old Fujitsu LifeBook N3010 N-Series without any hitches. I had more trouble acquiring a copy of XP Home. Now I'm just using it to play old games that won't run on my current PC running Win7 64-bit at all. But, so long as it works, it's all good.
