Cons: Price... like all other IDE drives now a days

Pros: One of the few 2.5" IDE drives which is still around
Comment:
Purchased this product for a clients laptop as their old hard drive failed. It does the job and is actually fairly quick for a 5400RPM PATA drive.

This 2.5 hard drive is pretty cheap! It's fast easy to access,and very reliable will good. But it's only got 160gb of space so if you download a lot of stuff this might not be for you.

Pros: Great price for a smaller hard drive by today's standards. a good upgrade, as I was on a budget when I got this.
Comment:
Anyone who has worked a lot with hard drives will tell you to buy nothing but Samsung. They are reliable and long lasting, and I hope my data is safe for many years (backing up still helps)

I bought this drive to replace the old 40Gb drive in my mother's notebook and I must say wow, what a difference! It's a lot fast, thanks to the bigger cash and faster speed.

I bought this drive to replace failed hard drive on my Dell laptop. So far so good. No issues at all. Easy installation, just remember to take the adapter bracket off your old hard drive and stick it on the new one. It's pretty quiet, and performs quite well for a notebook drive.

I purchased this drive to replace the one in a clients gateway laptop. The drive was a perfect match for the original, same size, same speed. Restored system and it is working perfectly. Client is happy. This drive is not the fastest but a great hard drive for the price.

I bought this a while back for my old macbook. I found it slow at times. I recently upgraded to a faster drive and bigger capacity. I now use this as an external drive and works perfectly.

Upgraded from a Toshiba 30gb 4200rpm drive, nice little performance gain and the added space is more than welcome.

Cons: Expensive compared to SATA drives.

Pros: Works as advertised, no problems observed. Compatible with old Apple iBook notebook computer.
Comment:
I bought this hard drive because I needed a replacement drive for my old white Apple iBook G3 800 MHz notebook. To my surprise, the whole 160GB was visible! It was not limited to 137GB or 128GB. No complaints here.

Cons: Power consumption is low, but not the lowest. I've heard plenty of negative things about Samsung warranties and support in Canada.

Pros: Seems to be a single platter drive. It's *fast* - the fastest PATA 2.5" drive I've tested. Very quiet, almost silent. Barely even gets warm, even after 4 hours of use.
Comment:
Works perfectly in my Powerbook G4 Titanium 1GHz (M8859LL/A). I hand no problems getting the system to recognize the drive and was able to clone over the original filesystem without issue. When I first powered on the machine with the replacement drive installed I thought I had accidentally disconnected a fan -the system was so much quieter! Xbench rates the drive at a little over twice as fast as the two stock Apple drives I have for the system. This drive makes a great upgrade for aging systems.

Comment:
I bought this for a old laptop. The great thing about this drive is the performance you will get for the price. Samsung is one of the few companies that updated their IDE hard drives with newer technology. The only other company is Western Digital (if you buy the 320GB model).I wanted a performance boost with a increase in hard drive capacity. Being a single 160GB platter hard drive meant that it was the fastest IDE hard drive out there (other than the 320GB WD which should give similar performance using 2 160GB platters). The Samsung was cheaper than the WD (per GB cost) which is why I felt like it was a better buy. This drive ends up being faster than any 7200 RPM IDE hard drive out there because of platter density.I was a bit hesitant about the Samsung brand at first. There are a bunch of bigger brand out there. However, this is probably one of the best upgrades you can give to an old laptop that still uses IDE hard drives.

picked up the 80 gbs version of this drive to replace a expiered factory toshiba hd. during operation the samsung spinpoint doesn't make much of a peep, is dead silent you will not know its there. speed wise very satisfactory results for 5400 rpm drive. streaming flash video plays smooth no jerkyness. overall a quality purchase, best price would recommend

This drive is a fast and worthwhile upgrade for older laptops using slower (and smaller) IDE drives. Its performance is consistent with what is described in many other online reviews. Fast, quiet, cool.
