Good price and reliable hard drive
2 weeks ago
Summary: Bought it for an HP Pavilion dv8000. This model has two 2.5" PATA drives. 320Gb is the biggest 2.5" PATA drive made and they are becoming harder to find. This one cast about $130 and was the lowest price I could find. I use the HP dv8000 to copy and burn CDs and DVDs. The drive is working just fine.
Please keep making Parallel ATA laptop hard disk drives. I would love to own a PATA solid state drive or hybrid drive.

Summary: Please keep making Parallel ATA laptop hard disk drives. I would love to own a PATA solid state drive or hybrid drive. I do in my desktop. But my Gateway laptop is too damn reliable and useful not to keep, even if it is 2.5" PATA.

Summary: I bought this drive quite some time ago. It was a good buy for the money and is still going strong. While it is small capacity compared to the terabyte drives available now, it fits the need it was bought for and just keeps chugging along.
Summary: I am quite happy that, after a long time looking for this drive, I found it available. I have several of these, though a couple of them have a slightly different model number, the descriptions of the drives are the same. It is quiet and works, as it should. It is a little bit of a put-off that the price is so high for these drives, but if one needs one, I guess one must pay the price.
Summary: A client of mine had an older Dell that HDD went belly up. I replaced with drive but the old machine only recognized like 170GB due to BIOS. But it has been reliable and good drive. And I don't normally like Western Digital since their QA is crap. I've seen more QD drive clicking than any other brand in the last 5-7 years. If it wasnt for the price and client choice, I'd pic a Seagate.
