Performance

I used to have a 5400rpm, 80 GB hard drive in my Vista laptop. After a year and a half of new software, and gunking up the hard drive, I had only 10 GB of space left, which made my laptop pretty slow. I popped this 7200rpm, 320 GB hard drive in, and reinstalled from the factory image. WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE! No problems at all swapping it out. It boots up in half the time it did when new with the smaller hard drive. Now I have 4x as much space, which is room enough for two partitions (one for programs/OS, and one for data only). Also, I have noticed about 50% longer battery life, and noticeably cooler operation when sitting on my lap. Operates noticeably quieter.

I shall say the shippment, and the item are both good enough. However, the discription for this item is not very close to its real condition. Buy.com shows me pictures of this item with origin retail box, never mentions it is actually in bulk condition untill I received this item. Buy.com likes Word Games very much, all things they tell you are over-optimistic.

Great and cheap upgrade with my reburbished laptop. I partitioned the drive into three partitions: OS, Data, and Backup. I now can re-image the laptop in minutes whenever needed without having to worry about backing up my data because they're all on the Data partition. Read More
