Ease of Use

This drive replaced the same drive in a Compaq machine that had failed. It came well packed with a shipping receipt. Plugged it in, closed the computer, fired it up, inserted the recovery disks (yes you should always make a set just for this reason) and the machine took care of the rest. This was too easy. I've never done any project before that didn't have a glitch in it, but this time I was pleasantly surprised. If you don't have those recovery disks, you may have a bit more of a challenge.

I order a lot of thing on line and is one of the most reiliable merchants that I deal with. They are fast and always ship fast. As far as the drive it's working great so far and the price is right. Great job guys!

Easy Does It

by Bruce on 1/12/2009

This was a replacement for my original 40GB hard drive that wouldn't allow me access to repair Windows XP but still had my data on it. I made this 160GB my primary drive C), and reinstalled XP on it. XP's original edition won't recognize/format more than 130GB so this drive worked perfectly. It is extremely quiet, fast, and very reliable which is what I needed. I kept the old drive as drive E) and transferred my data onto my new drive, reloading the programs I needed. A great drive for the money, if you don't need tons of space.
