Be cautious.

Youngkwan Y., Newegg

  • Summary: This is my day 1 with this drive installed on my laptop. I've used it for about 40 minutes now, and I already heard 3 clicking sounds coming from the HDD. My old 5400 rpm drive never made that sound, and coming from my experience, any HDD that made this clicking sound were near dead and stopped...
  • Pros: This HDD is indeed faster than my previous 5400rpm drive that came with my laptop.
  • Cons: Loud noise and clicking sound.

Overrated

Anonymous, Newegg
27 February 2013
  • Summary: Replaced laptop's 750GB Seagate Momenthus with this drive and it's notably inferior. The Scorpio Black is not only louder but performs worse in similar situations. Whenever I'm doing HDD intensive tasks like calculating checksums or extracting/compressing files, multitasking becomes even harder to...
  • Pros: - Nice warranty
  • Cons: - Overpriced

Update on my last review of this

Aaron S., Newegg
11 November 2012
  • Pros: Worked great while it lasted, still somewhat works.
  • Cons: Bought this back in June of this year, worked great up until about a month ago. Since a month ago, more and more problems have been arising with it that happened with my last one when it started failing, and now I'm getting blue screens on startup every other time and my computer is having a hard...

Scorpio Black

Jason M., Newegg
23 September 2012
  • Summary: Great drive while it lasted. Installed as a secondary data drive in an Alienware M18x R1. I wouldn't recommend using it on any important files without a rock solid backup plan. What happened to drives that last 5-10 years?
  • Pros: -Fast -Reasonable Price
  • Cons: -Died in 15 months

  • Summary: Die Performance des Festplatte ist sehr gut , allerdings ist sie sehr laut und das ganze Gehäuse meines Asus G60 vibriert,daher habe ich sie wieder zurück geschigt. Meine alte Seagate Platte mit 7200rpm war da wesentlich leiser und vibrationsärmer

Solange sie geht, wunderbar...

Martin Macheiner "MM", Amazon

  • Summary: Ich habe diese Festplatte bei Amazon für mein MacBook Pro erworben, da mir die Originalplatte zu klein (320 GB) und zu langsam (5400 U/Min) war. Einbau verlief völlig problemlos, Rückspielen der Daten von der TimeMachine ebenso. Soweit so gut. Platte lief schnell, leise und vibrationsarm.

Nach ca.84 Stunden defekt

Guenter, Amazon
8 July 2013
  • Summary: Platte kam wie angekündigt recht schnell. Ausschlaggebend für den Kauf waren die durchweg guten Bewertungen. Nach einbau und installation von win 7 war ich begeistert Platte schnell und wirklich leise. Dann nach ca. 84 Betriebsstunden Rechner immer langsamer. Beim nächsten Neustart Fehlermeldungen.
