Performance

This drive is solid and runs cool. However, I will reduce its rating over two facts: 1) It does not come with the jumper that is necessary to reduce its default SATA interface speed from 3.0GB/s to 1.5GB/s, and it does not include any kind of directions on how one might do so (there isn't even an indication anywhere on the drive's labels, boards, etc.). 2) Buy.com fails to mention anywhere on their site that this is an OEM drive, so all you get is the bare drive and nothing else (no software, no screws, no insert with any kind of directions, and no jumper). For all this, I give the drive nine out of ten stars instead of ten out of ten, rounding to four out of five.

Cheap packaging, and no extras, just bare drive

Good Drive

by Nice person on 6/21/2009

Yes the drive was OEM, which saved money... but I had to go and purchase screws and a SATA cable, which was more difficult than I thought it would be. I wasn't sure which screws to get, thankfully I bought the right things. I have no idea why one would (reduce the default SATA interface speed)but the drive did not come with even the simplest instruction sheet. With a little help from someone who knew how to install the drive, I did the hard installation myself. It was really, really easy- but would not have been if I didn't have someone explain it to me while sitting right there with me. Getting the computer to use the drive was a little trickier. I am new to Vista and had to call a tech to figure out how to format the drive. Buy.com used descent protective packaging material for the drive. It was padded on all sides with a dense and squishy foam, much better than how I have heard other companies pack their drives. So far the drive itself is running smoothly and quietly. I think overall I will be happy with this product, but I encourage the non-tech savvy to not purchase an OEM drive. Read More
