Backup hard drive

Summary: I guess I love it...it's a 500GB hard drive and so far it works with no problems. It was a replacement for a 40GB hard drive in an older SFF HP computer I decided to upgrade for a backup computer, so it most likely won't get a lot of use...at least for now.
Summary: The drive arrived very fast and was packed well. I used it to replace a defective hard drive in a video surveillance system. Not that it mattered to me but it arrives with no documentation or instructions just a bare drive in a box.

Summary: Nothing spectacular of earth-shattering here. Works as advertised, however, there was nothing in the way of literature included with the drive. Granted, if you are purchasing this item you should know what to do with it, but I had expected at least some connector cables so I could test the drive...
Summary: These are nice SATA Hard drives for slightly older computers. A lot of people might just go for the drives that the retail stores carry, but I think that these Audio-Visual (and the older Enterprise drives) might have something to offer over some of the latest hard drives.
Summary: Purchased for a Desktop. It's quiet and runs with less power than the previous drive. It is brand new and the seller places a 1 year warranty on the drive. Being a Green Drive, it uses less power. The heads are designed NOT to come into contact with the platters even if power is lost.
