Summary: I bought the Satellite L655 with this hard drive and it happens to be unstable after my intensive usage. I abused my Satellite L655 a lot. I kept it running for several weeks from time to time...Now the disk is dead and out of warranty. After half year I bought the laptop, from time to time, the laptop would boot and couldn't find the hard drive, meaning failed to boot. Sometimes it recovered automatically for no reason.
Summary: I bought a Toshiba satellite laptop with this hard drive installed. After one year and one month I received a message my hard drive was going to fail soon and I had better back up everything I had. I had only stored 50gb out of the possible 500. This computer is in a stationary location and has never been abused in any way, is used mostly for web surfing and storing itunes. What I'm trying to say is I don't think it failed because of use.
