Does NOT work with Dell Inspiron 1545

Nathan S., Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: This 7mm thick drive does NOT work with the Dell Inspiron 1545. The 1545 requires a 9.5mm thick drive because of the way the hard drive caddy is designed.

WD over the other brands

Renbutsu, Amazon
20 May 2013
  • Summary: I have many HDDs throughout the years, IBM, WD, Maxtor, Seagate, Hitachi, Toshiba. Generally of all the brands and models I have owned over the years, I have only had issues with Seagate. That is the only one I will definitely avoid currently.

So far okay for four of five disks

rhhardin "rhhardin", Amazon
25 March 2013
  • Summary: Four of five ordered new perform okay after several months, one could not be formatted. The 8mb cache makes them distinctly slower than the 16mb cache they replaced, if speed is a consideration.

Good Drive

Anthony W., Newegg
15 May 2012
  • Summary: Installed in my laptop Vostro 3300(dell). My first 4k sector alignment HD, not a bad indeed.
  • Pros: Half a Terabyte, I can run Win7 plus 3 other of my favorite linux distros and still have ample room for storage. 4k sector manual partition went without a hitch. No noticeable speed loss compared to the WD Scorpio Black HD. Runs a tad cooler than Scorpio. Very economically priced.
  • Cons: Still runs too hot.

Works fine

Hunwise, Amazon
10 October 2011
  • Summary: Arrived on time, in its packaging, and my PS3 accepted it perfectly. So for all of you who zipped to this product after reading the PS3 harddrive replacement instructions, this is what you are looking for. Update: This hard drive is still working perfectly and I bought it over two years ago.

really good while it worked.

Brandon T., Newegg
24 March 2011
  • Summary: I have had this drive in an EEE 904HD for over a year and it worked out amazing. I just wish it lasted longer.
  • Pros: Fast Cool Solid, until it failed.
  • Cons: After more then a year, I started getting BSOD's whenever i coppied anything over a gig or so to it. I thought it was windows so i went to reinstal and it wouldn't make it past 10%.
