Beware - drive comes with preformatted dynamic NTFS volume (OS will refuse to install onto it)

  • Summary: Drive came in a good packaging with pre-installed NTFS dynamic volume. By the time I got to it to figure it out the price of the drive went up from $50 to a few hundred in labour alone. Also having an OEM drive with active dynamic volume partition shipped to me makes me think if I'm getting a second hand product. Just an FYI that any regular joe will have hard time installing OS onto this drive without parted or alike.

Perfect replacement for what I needed and great price.

  • Summary: I run a RAID system for redundancy on my home computer. Its a little slow but cheaper as a complete and instantly available backup. I wanted and exact duplicate model of HDD when a 4-year old HDD started dying. This was exact. The price was amazing (I'm old enough to remember HDD for hundreds of dollars!). Shipping was as promise and it works terrific for my needs. I will order again from this company when the other drive becomes geriatric.

Good but noisy

  • Excerpt: Used for system image, video, music storage. Make sure you mount this drive with screws to the frame of your case to keep hum and vibration to tolerable levels. Not recommended for cases with plastic drive sleds/caddies.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Not Advanced Fomrat, Not Advanced Format, Spacious
  • Cons: Loud Hum, Vibration

  • Summary: Works perfectly, and the price was reasonable. Replacing the hard drive on my 2006 iMac would have been a nightmare if not for this product.

  • Summary: I bought 2 of these and installed in my Dell XPS-400 Desktop. Installed without issue. Installed Windows 7 Home Premium without issue. Used Partition Wizard to make a few partitions without any problems. I like having 2 drives (one for backup).
