Purchased this to replace a broken seagate hard drive. My seagate hard drive that was originally installed in my new laptop died after 15m of use, so I bought the same one to replace it. The labor cost was $100 to replace. I went to the same place where I purchased my laptop. After replaced by a technician, the hard drive died 5 days later. So, I got a new replacement again. Now, it is still working after 15 m of infrequent use. I have another laptop of a different brand with a hitachi hard drive that is more quiet. Because this is OEM, I went to the same place where I purchased my laptop, as I am not sure whether Seagate would honor the warranty, if u get your laptop and hard drive at different shops.
Averages about 56MB/s in HDTach overall. Compared to a newer 7200.4 which gets about 84MB/s in HDtach, the 7200rpm drive is about 50% faster overall. When I got the 5400.6, it was cheaper by a good margin, but recently (February/March 2010), the 7200rpm drives are available at competitive prices on NCIX sales.
In the last few months, SSD's have dropped into the sub-$100 category (for 30GB drives), making them very attractive as boot drives on both desktops and laptops. Drives like this are better as secondary/storage drives.
Good harddrive. Wasn't too expensive and it makes a sizeable upgrade from smaller harddrives. I like that it's a 5400 rpm, as even though that slows down access speeds compared to 7200s, it keeps it a little quieter and I think uses less power (that's just a suspicion though).
As far as 2.5" hard drives go this has been a reliable favorite. I have been replacing customers' notebook hard drives with the 320gb seagate for quite a while now and have not had a single one come back to me.
