Summary: Great overall value. A friend got their Dell hijacked by a supposed online fix-it company and had their credit card charged almost $1,000.00. When they put a stop payment, they locked the computer remotely. Couldn't even format and reinstall Windows. Popped this drive in, installed Windows and they are off and running again.
Summary: I bought this to attempt to recover an old windows 95 server, so we could restore some old backups. It was cheap enough, but didn't last even long enough for me to get windows installed. Then it stopped working and became another dead, useless piece of antique hardware.
Summary: I have a Dell 4100 that pretty old and needs a new hard drive. Since this one has an IDE type, this 40gb seemed a good place to start. The price was right and not too much lost if I can't make it work. I can always salvage the magnets out and do some other things with them. The vendor did a super job on getting my order filled and getting the item to me in a very short period of time. I wish everyone could be so prompt in filling their orders. Thank you!
