Not bad for $30

J. Watkins, Amazon
6 August 2015
  • Summary: The price made it a good deal, however my drive keeps hanging up while in use and is causing my system to lag sometimes. it's only 3-5 seconds a few times a day. I also had to reinstall windows after having it installed for about 20 minutes because the drive had lost a file somehow that soon.

Great drive for any DVR

Bob Ray "Bob", Amazon
6 July 2015
  • Summary: I used this as a replacement drive in my DirecTivo. R10. The process was fairly tricky because I copied everything from the old drive, and I needed to buy an IDE/Sata adapter from WeaKnees, but the drive itself was great (and very quiet and cool). I now have room for 450 hours of SD programs.

Backup hard drive

Arthur F., Amazon

  • 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.

Perfect for Surveillance System

Casch "Chris", Amazon
5 June 2015
  • 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...
