Summary: I bought two, and one has failed after the warranty expired. I was able to save my files to another drive before it failed completely. The other drive is still in perfect condition, according to the SMART data.
Summary: Needed a new drive and saw this one at a fair price but not even 3 months did this drive survive, you have warranty and what not but I mean, I needed this to work not fail. Packaging was fair for a bare hard drive.
Summary: So my other drive in my dell laptop said imminent hard drive failure (quite bummed about this as it was not even 2 years old)..I went to staples..They wanted over 150.00 to replace the drive..A friend said it was petty straightforward and sent me a video.
