Summary: The item was well packaged for shipment. Was able to mirror existing smaller HD onto the new one and it worked perfectly at first light...am using the PC with it now as main drive as I write this.
Summary: The product worked great. It was 30 GB larger than the old drive, faster and less expensive. Installation was easy. Instructions about how to transfer the OS and other programs and data were non existent. It took me 10 hours to find out how it get it done and do it.
Summary: This product is for an older computer. Eventhough it is the same numbers and size that I was looking for I didn't have the experience to know that there are other factors to consider. I needed one for sata and this was for pata and something else. After receiving it and not opening it,being able to see the connections, it was evident that it was different. The co. rep. was very nice, considerate and helpful. The product was returned w/o incident.
Summary: Resurrected an old HP laptop to use around the house for light work. Purchased this hard drive installed easily and has been working like a champ. Sometimes while writing alot of data to disc it clicks rather loudly.
