Replaced drive in Powerbook successfully

mractive, Amazon
3 November 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this in part because of a review by "Keith" here. As he, I installed in my older Powerbook G4. So far, working like the original drive (that died). Performance as expected in terms of speed; it's an older model drive. Really glad to have had the previous review before purchasing. Good purchase.

A good FAST read/write speed for a small drive, reliable and compact.

  • Summary: Good drive, fast and have had no problems with it. It installed fast, more or less, plug and play and it was off. Sometimes you might have to initialize a drive before the computer will assign a letter, keep that in mind but it is simple and the only thing you will have to do. The 5400 RPM speed really made things pick up speed, read and write picked right up making loading and reading really fast compared to my other slow drives. Very happy with this drive.

Installed in Mac Mini G4

Discerning purchaser, Amazon
29 September 2014
  • Summary: Arrived quickly & nicely packaged in static sleeve. Installed easily in a Mac Mini G4 and has been working well thus far. Note: I didn't see a date of manufacture on the hard drive. I saw some codes stamped, which may have been date codes, but am used to seeing actual dates on hard drives. Cause for concern?

Works great.

  • 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.

sent wrong item and it was a used laptop pull

  • 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.
