Summary: The hard drive comes sealed on an anti-static bag held by special suspensor so the packaging is great. Something interesting I found is that though the drive itself says it is 1TB (LBA 1.953,525 168Sectors), it says as well at the label that the capacity is of 8455 MB (CYL16383, H16, S63)
Summary: It's big and inexpensive, but it makes the characteristic hard drive read/write clicking noises I remember from 15 years ago. There's also a persistent vibration much worse than the older hard drives in my older laptops. I can't wait to swap in a SSD.
Cons: This is the "clickiest" notebook drive I've heard in a long time. Even during sequential reads/writes it frequently makes loud clicking sounds, even louder than a desktop hard drive near the end of it's life.

Summary: In the product image, it says "Made in Japan" but the actual product is made in China. Japanese corporates seem to have given up on manufacturing. I've used it for 4 months now but so far it's serving the purpose.
Summary: Please read the description of the drive for sale carefully! This is a 2.5' (foot) drive, not a 2.5" (inch) drive. This ended up working out OK for me, as I've found a number of alternate uses for the massive thing: welcome mat, boogie board, Honey I Shrunk The Kids cosplay.
Summary: I purchased this to replace another 1TB drive which I use as an OS X Time Machine backup drive. This drive is in an external FireWire 800 case, and lives in my bedroom/office so I need it to be quiet. I purchased it based on others' reviews stating it was quiet.
