Great

DAVID D., Newegg

  • 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. This hard drive is almost twice as fast as the 5400 rpm HDD that is in another one of my laptops; though, its not quite as fast as a SSD. I have never had a problem w...

Only lasted about 14 months

  • Summary: This drive was OEM and in my Dell XPS laptop. The original drive (same drive model) was replaced by Dell 14 Months ago. I've owned the computer for 2 years and both Toshiba drives failed at about 1 year. I guess thats why their warranty is only 1 year.
  • Pros: It was pretty fast and quiet while it worked.
  • Cons: Did not last very long and died without warning.

  • Summary: rather expensive, especially when following a bad experience. This will probably be replaced by a cheaper, larger HDD or a hybrid ssd/hdd
  • Pros: decent capacity & speed (while it worked)
  • Cons: shot craps 4 months after HP's warranty period expired for the OEM drive.

Very poor quality

  • Summary: My laptop is a Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7270. I upgraded it from an i5 2410M to an i7 2760. I went from 6 to 16GB of DDR3 ram. It has a GTX 560M video card. It came with this hard drive but now I have a kingston 120GB hyperX SSD. The SSD has made me completely satisfied with my purchase.
  • 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. The solution to all of this? I switch to a 60$ 120GB SSD and it all goes away. This laptop was a fresh refurbish from toshib...
