Strengths: Quiet, good speed

Weakness: Premature death

Died after 18 months of modest, but daily service. No indication of problem before it quit. Otherwise, it worked well and was a big improvement in capacity over the original 20GB drive. Used in Compaq Evo N1015v laptop.

Strengths: Seat of the pants faster, quieter and I have not noticed any additional heat.

Weakness: none.

I was fortunate enough to find this hard drive from Newegg after searching numerous vendors for a reasonable price. First off, it is amazingly easy to switch hard drives on laptops.

After the easy swap, you will recognize a significant speed increase in regards to startup and daily...

Strengths: Has decreased my boot up time by half. Much quiter than expected. Applications run much faster and more smoothly.

Weakness: It has reduced my battery life some. My HP zt3000 was getting four and a half hours with my old 4200rpm drive and now it gets about three and a half. Maybe I can tweak it a bit?

I am pleased with the overall performance of the drive and would recommend this to anyone who wants desktop speeds from their laptop. All the applications that I have tested run much more smoothly than before. AutoCAD, 3ds Max, Maya, and Revit are the programs that I use most and they don't suffer from the annoying hard drive hiccups that plagued them before. There is nothing worse than trying to...

Strengths: Fast & Quiet

Weakness: None so far

My old drive from my Dell died so I decided to upgrade while I was replacing it. Went from 30G 4200RPM, to this one and I love it. I thought it might be noisier or hotter but it's not. It's super quiet and blasts through files like it's its job.
