drive was locked

  • Summary: The drive was defective & arrived in a locked condition. I did not try to return it because I did not get a chance to try it out until I had it for over a month due to a busy schedule.

Good performance but RPM issue?

Joe James, Amazon

  • Summary: Disk arrived in very good time, swapped into my 2007 MacBook in no time at all and then restored my system from backup perfectly. Now it works great, slightly quicker than my old WD Scorpio Blue 500GB drive that was 5400 rpm.

Excellent value for a performance boost.

T.J.Byford "TJ", Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: I have an old'ish 3-year old Toshiba Equium P200D-139 which came with 2GB RAM and a small HD of just 80GB. The small HD wasn't initially an issue as I have other machines with 500GB and separate back-up drives, but recently I've been using this machine more for its 17.3" screen which is ideal for my...

Ok while it lasted, but died after exactly 18 months

jacaranda, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: And what's worse is that the SMART status that's supposed to tell you that the drive is failing just lies. The drive's internal error log showed it had been suffering errors, but the SMART status still reported that everything was ok.

  • Summary: when my hard drive failed during finals week you can imagine how gutted i was. this was so easy to plug in and has now been officially running for longer than the original hard drive on my HP Pavilon dv6 ran. couldn't possibly be more satisfied. as a side note: i am not a computer wiz.

So far so good

MorrisMonkey, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this with the Bipra Sata to USB kit, see my review. My Toshiba laptop had an 80bg hard drive which is now too small for my photos, videos etc, so I wanted to clone the hard drive onto a much bigger hard drive.

not quite up to the specs

Alex Hunt, Amazon
12 December 2013
  • Summary: In general it checks out - it's pleasantly quiet, installed with no problems and works as expected. However, it seems much slower than the specs suggest. I get 100 mbps read and write from it (defragged) I've got a 5400 rpm disk from 3 years which gets 90mbps read speeds Therefore, while it does the...
