Summary: Although this has given me zero problems, and seems to work flawlessly; I would be skeptical about purchasing one based on all of the other reviews.
Pros: This particular HDD came in my HP Pavilion laptop. The laptop is now going on 4 years old, and has had more than its share of use.

Summary: Drive can installed in my sony laptop. works great while it last. transfers are decent, very quite overall great. one big problem is it will die. i have had my laptop 11 months and have had to replace it twice (both under warranty).

Pros: The capacity and speed are okay, but not for the price. Black friday/cyber monday sales had many 256 GB SSDs for not much more than this hard drive and they are MUCH faster AND more reliable.
Cons: Windows installations kept having issues, games chug and stutter, drivers act up, and overall sluggish performance on a laptop with a core i7 quad core and a GTX 560M card.
