But for the time that I've had it, it's doing what I want it to do, which is run and be recognized by the computer's motherboard, which is what's happening, you know, since I'm ON THE COMPUTER...
This is the first time I have replaced a hard drive, but everything went well. Very easy to replace the hard drive. Getting Windows 8.1 re-installed was the only difficult part. I had made a recovery drive, and had cloned my old hard drive to the new hard drive, but it ended up making a new installation disk from the Windows website, and starting over with a new Windows installation. No problems or issues with the new hard drive, and the larger capacity is a nice bonus (1 TB vs. 650 GB).
As I've only had this in for about a week now, I can't give it a higher rating or say it's quality in the long run. I can say that after a few snags at the beginning of doing a complete hard drive and drivers re-installation on my laptop, it's running quite smoothly. Not as fast as I would have expected if I'm being honest, but it's doing it's job.
That the job, what's supposed to do
the shipping, packaging and everything was great. i ordered the wrong one for our
laptop. since i am new at ordering things like this, i cannot comment on the part itself
as i have no idea. but everything from ordering to receiving was great.
this hard drive did NOT work and cost me to put it in and then take it OUT again it was NO GOOD!
Works fine. Installing it I had some issues in that I had to do a clean windows 7 install because vista would not recognize the 1TB drive. When I did that it came out good no problems and a very good price for the drive.
I purchased this for a storage upgrade. Ten minutes to install.
I have had no problems with this drive. It has been running almost non stop for about nine months now. I do wish there was a larger size drive but I am told there is not. It is full so I am looking at 3tb in the future. I would recommend this drive.
The item works great. Plenty of storage. But the down fall I'd with my original HDD my games loaded quite a bit faster. Other then that it's awesome.
Drive worked fine for the first 45 days, Then, in mid-use it failed. A 5 minute wait followed by a re-boot got it up again. Diagnostic tests say hard drive is bad. Going to try to back up everything to external drive immediately! No telling how much longer this drive has!
After a couple months of use, my drive would start lagging when getting some data, and would eventually make an audible click and then the data would pass through. Games installed in the drive would sometimes freeze until the click happened. Tried to see if using scandisk would just identify and block whatever sectors might have issues, but it didn't help, so I guess the problem was not in the plates? Finally cloned the drive before any more corruption happened and pulled it out. I was hoping to find out about its warranty online, but even copying and pasting the model number from this page into the support page would tell me the entry isn't valid.... I guess it's going to be either phone or live chat, like the pop-up window that is currently blocking my view of what I'm typing...
Don't waste your money on this drive. It worked fine for the first three months but then it would slow down and give errors. The quality of the drive went bad so fast I didn't have time to save some of the files I needed. I couldn't even boot up from another drive to transfer what I had on here. I expected better from Toshiba.
Upgrading hard drive from 500Gb to 1TB, followed instructions, have 5 back up disks from A505 system, back up takes 3 disks, does not ask for 4 and 5, unable to get new hard drive to work as it does not correctly re enter license for original disk/software. searched community forum, it appears everyone who did this is having the same problem, wasted money.
