The longest-lasting hard drive I've ever seen

Jay, Amazon
28 August 2014
  • Summary: I have one of these hard drives still, this day, as I write this review, eleven years after they started production. It's had Windows 2000, XP, XP SP2, XP SP3, and Windows 7 installed on it, and been a part of four different computer builds. I mean, you'd be silly to buy one today, but I sure did get a good one.

Worked for me.

RGM, Amazon
29 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought two of these to maximize the storage capability of my old Macintosh PowerPC G4. It gave me the capability of twin-cloned hard drives so I could boot to the other in case the primary hard drive failed. That generation of Macintosh (circa 2000) had a hard drive max of 128 GB, two drives chained to the same IDE cable maximized (very nearly) the maximum IDE storage capabilities of my old Mac.

  • Summary: There are no problems, but it did not seem to work right away. Some tinkering was required, but nothing requiring an expert.

Wrong Item sent

Gilbert Roberts, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: I particularly needed an IDE drive to suit my older motherboard. No doubt thinking I would be happy wioth something bigger and better these clowns sent me a 160 Gig SATA drive. No good. Sits on the shelf. Oh Well!

Perfect to upgrade an older PC with Win 98 - 2000

Maira Liset Arenas, Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: I'm using this older system like a file server. The 40GB original HD was reaching their full capacity, so I decide to choose this 120GB model because the theoretical FAT 32 limit in Win 98. I formatted it in win 98 (With FDISK and FORMAT commands) without any complains, and worked perfectly in both system boots (win 98 and win 2000) As you can guess, it arrives like any other OEM product, in an antistatic bag inside a box with appropriate anti-shock materials.

A Very Good Deal

November, Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: This was a very good product. If I need another I will for sure buy here. Everyone should at least try here, if a hard drive is needed. Price was right, shipping fast, and product works. Thanks again.

Didn't work, sounds like a lawn-mower\vacuum cleaner.

Joshua Coleman, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: Just like the description, all I can say is this is officially the first Amazon order I'm disappointed with. Not only does it make an awful sound, it doesn't even come up on my BIOS screen! There's just one thing to say... Take this hard drive and... well... you know the rest.
