Summary: This drive is fantastic value for money, very quiet, fast and low power usage. I used it to replace a 160gb 3.5" in my 4 camera CCTV recording system that had gone very noisy and appeared to be going faulty. Took a gamble at this price to make the change and it worked like a dream. A slight modification to the original cradle was all that was required to fit the smaller drive. It consumes 1/2 the power of the original and is so silent.
Summary: I bought this hard disk replacement for my Acer Aspire 5670 which came with a standard 5,400 rpm hard disk .as my Acer is 8 years old and was running very slow.now it is noticadly faster.I also loaded windows 7. im delighted with the results. I did not get an invoice or a warranty with my hard drive.
Summary: These are very well priced performance 2.5 hard drives. I bought 4 for a RAID 10 Setup. However the invoice quoted new, the Hard drives are stating recertified. This means WD only give 6 months warranty, however Cambridge accessories give 1 year. If the hard drives were brand new ex factory build they would come with a 5 year warranty. Cannot quibble at the moment price and quantity 4 make good for a server RAID 10 setup, time will tell on mechanical performance.
Summary: Fitted this to a 2008 HP Pavillion laptop to replace its original and still good 2007 160Gb 5400rpm Toshiba HD. Windows Vista Ultimate installed straight away in 25 minutes. This drive is quieter, slightly faster, and the battery lasts a little longer too. I'm very happy with this purchase and so have just ordered another for another Pavillion.
Summary: I bought this due to the higher spin speed to upgrade a 3 year old laptop that was "creaking" a bit. I also loaded Windows 7 at the same time and am absolutely delighted with the results. The power on time due to win 7 AND the HDD start up is aprox 20 secs now (It was well over a minute before) and the HDD is pretty much silent. Great value for money.
