Summary: Based on 20+ years experience have found this particular hard-drive type the best replacement/upgrade encountered. It has an internal 'shock sensor' which protects the hard-drive when laptop is dropped or 'impacted'.* It also is noticeably faster (7200rpm) than the usual laptop (4800rpm).
You can hear the sensor snap lock the read write head

Summary: This is a cool drive. I bought it to put it in a case and take it with me as an offsite backup. I dropped it on the table once...about 16 inches and I heard it snap lock before it hit the table. Every laptop that doesn't have an SSD should have one of these.
Summary: Boy this little drive is great. I've been running this one for about a year now, on two different machines. The first thing that got my attention was the freefall sensor. Unfortunately the machine it is currently installed in already has a free fall sensor.
Summary: Amazon had this when NewEgg did not wow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is a very good laptop drive if your like me.... i`m a Canon, Ricoh service tech and a laptop is a must on the go !!! and to have this type a drive is a must !!!
