Summary: My Hard Drive "broke" there is something wrong with the reader arm. My computer would not even boot up. I received my replacement in a timely manner. Plug and play. Reinstalled me OS and I'm back in business.
Summary: This is exactly what I needed to update my system to have more storage space and I just LOVE IT.I'm telling you from experience friends,THIS is a REQUIRED upgrade to ALL computers.AT LEAST another 500 GB of storage space.I've been using an OEM Hard drive that was in my laptop when I purchased in late 2008,a 147 GB,and finally filled it up.I NEED MORE STORAGE SPACE !!!! So I did it.Purchased all my upgrades from Amazon,the "EVERTHING" place to shop online.
Summary: Simple put, I cannot install the operating software on the drive. I have tried multiple OS disks and get the same failure message with each. Because I have a busy life, the time to return has expired and I'm out $50! Pay attention to the return policy and act quickly.
