"finally, server reliability for your notebook"4.5 starson by esterud
Pros: super fast, very reliable
Cons: assumption: may be too hot for your notebook specs
Summary: [note this applies to the 40 GB model] I have replaced about 5 notebook drives that were either average speed or just plain bad. Each notebook replaced with this drive saw a very noticeable speed improvement. I read on the spec sheet that these were designed to be put into servers with 24x7 access-- that was what sold me. Check out the official specs yourself. And I've seen the speed difference in person and I have not had one of my five fail or degrade in 2 years. I work in IT and recommend this drive to everyone. It is worth the price.
