Summary: Found the laptops' video card went bad not the hard drive.Used this drive to upgrade another laptop and it worked fine.The only problem was the mailing packaging.Use something better than tissue paper as a protective cushion.
Summary: Advertised as BJKT model (drop detection sensor), received BEKT (without sensor), for a replacement laptop and it was a good price so didn't pursue any further but certainly warrants a downgrade on rating.
Summary: This drive is now 3 year old and still working well under extreme temperature conditions. I purchased this drive for use in an older HP Laptop computer as a replacement for an failing 80GB drive. The HP laptop that I purchased this drive for is located in my Pocono cabin and stays there year round. Once the drive was installed in the computer I installed Fedora Linux as the operating system.
Summary: Replaced a dead HD in a friend's HP DV9500. I read briefly that these were quick drives and was glad to see in my initial benchmarks that this drive delivered high performance (double the old one) and was quiet. I'm not sure about longevity and heat with this 7200 RPM drive, but setup and install with Windows 7 went quicker than I've seen in the past and was very responsive in file I/O tasks I ran it through in restoring a lot of older data and then copying between...
Summary: After reading most of the reviews of these drives (Yea, i looked at all the types/models/sizes) i realised that its just a matter of personal opinion. I have heard that they are noisy, create alot more heat, and no effect on performance. Well, I have a Dell D630, and having swapped the drive myself and compared it to the original i have to state that this drive is worth the upgrade. This drive is fast... wicked fast.
Summary: My VAIO HardDrive failed in 2 year so I got this from Amazon, replaced the original HDD with Western digital Scorpio and viola all the noise that came from the old HDD was gone laptop was more quiet and it is fast as compared to the original 5400 rpm drive. In all this Drive is very nice.
