Jon K., Newegg

  • Summary: Macbook 1,1 Intel running Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin.

  • Summary: A relative bought a new Dell laptop Christmas of 2010. This drive came in that laptop. The drive became non-functional a little more than six months after the laptop was purchased. I bought the exact same drive from Newegg, and the new drive was defective on arrival.
  • Pros: Quiet and fast
  • Cons: Short life, if any.

Works like I had hoped

MH, Amazon

  • Summary: I was scared to buy this refurb but after opening the box and seeing it sealed in plastic I knew it was at least a good start. The install of the drive and os went perfect and is still running like a champ.

Clicking

Don B., Newegg
17 March 2012
  • Pros: Can't argue with the price.
  • Cons: This drive came with my Gateway netbook. It's worked great for the past 2 years but now it's starting to make a clicking noise and I'm afraid it's about to die. Looking for a replacement drive now.

So far so good - 5 months in a Macbook.

Amazon
16 December 2011
  • Summary: I had to replace the hard drive in my black, first-generation Macbook this summer that I've had for three or four years. I'd never gotten a non-Apple replacement part, but things are working just fine so far and I've had it in for 5 months. :)
