Summary: My Asus notebook came with a Seagate Momentus Slim SATA 2 hard drive and it crashed 6 months after buying it. Rather than spend $20 in shipping, weeks without a computer, and hours of changing passwords, I decided to ignore the warranty process and buy a different brand instead. This hard drive has the same exact specifications as the original in my asus x501u. Most importantly, it is 7mm thick. A 9.5mm will not fit in a Asus x501u.

Summary: Works exactly as expected. Bought this for use in an Xbox 360 and was able to flash it for use as an Xbox drive without any problems. The boys are much happier now that they have room to store more games...
Summary: I have used (hundreds) of WD drives over the years and have had very few complaints. It is important to note that this HDD is designed and engineered for SATA II -- NOT SATA III -- use. I consider it a reliable product that meets or exceeds normal expectations.
