  • Pros: Not a single problem with hard drive. It's stood up to 6+ reformats and different OS installs and multiple partitioning....I've been playing around with different versions of linux and dual booting setups.

Great replacement HD

Michael H., Newegg
29 July 2010
  • Summary: Not a con but now it's half the price I paid since June 2009 but that's how technology pricing usually works. Soon 1TB will be $50.
  • Pros: Let me say that I purchased the TOSHIBA MK5055GSX 500GB in June 2009 and I've never had a problem with it. I used it to replace a 250GB Hitachi HD that came with my Gateway M-6848. I was able to clone my old HD ( I used acronis software) right onto the new toshiba HD, placed it in mt laptop and it has since worked flawlessly. I take my laptop everywhere with me almost daily and constantly banging it. I even took it to Jamaica for vacation and after all the mileage and...
  • Cons: I wished it was 7200rpm.

Toshiba 500 GB Hard Drive

Daniel K., Newegg
22 July 2010
  • Pros: Very quiet and very durable drive. I dropped it, about 3 feet, onto carpet without any issues. Installed in a Dell Inspiron E1705 running Windows 7, installed the OS without a problem. Dual boots Ubuntu Linux and Windows 7 with no problems, took the NTFS and ext4 formatting without incident.
  • Cons: Heats up quickly and makes the case quite hot to the touch, but that's not enough to discourage a 5-egg Rating.

  • Pros: Got this for an upgrade for the 7805u Gateway FX computer.. All I can say is that it has made my love my laptop that much more lol.. Plug and play except for allocating the hard drive..
  • Cons: Just comes in a brown box with no type of documents.. This is the first time I have ever bought a hard drive so really wasn't sure what to expect tho..

TOSHIBA MK5065GSX

daniel j., Newegg
20 April 2010
  • Pros: These drives are reliable, quiet & run cool. I've been using Toshiba for all my desktop & notebook upgrades. I'm a reseller. So when it comes to desktop sales & upgrading notebooks I can't afford to have a customer call or email me with hardware failure. Since I moved to Toshiba I have not had one problem with their drives.
  • Cons: None as of yet.

Rejuvenated my old Macbook.

ant, Amazon
9 September 2011
  • Summary: When I bought my Macbook nearly 5 years ago it came with a measly 60GB Toshiba hard drive. I soon replaced this with a larger Western Digital drive, followed by an even larger WD drive a couple of years down the line. By this time I noticed that the Macbook seemed very hesitant so I reinstalled the OS and Apps. However, I kept getting a "disk too slow" error message when recording simple music in Logic, and there were several seconds delay in menus appearing.
