Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Drive I have had three generations of this drive and have been very happy each time. I think bang for buck it performs brilliantly. 29 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Revitalise old laptop This was installed in an old XP machine that was really slowing down - almost to the point of replacement. Now it may give another year or two to that laptop. 24 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by works as required I have put a separate O/S on this new hard drive as i use several systems and put them on a drive have a hard drive caddy and this works great had to buy a reducing cradle but no problems 13 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly impressed! I wasn't sure what to expect from a drive so cheap but I'm chuffed to bits with it - don't get me wrong, you're not going to see anything like pure-SSD speeds from it but I have found that application access is noticeably faster and my boot time (somewhat cluttered 4 year-old machine) has near-as-dang-it halved. Combine this with Scan's legendary (I assume) customer service and you've got a top-class experience all round. Highly recommended budget speed boost. 03 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by If you can't afford an ssd, I'd definitely recommend Bought for a work laptop and they wouldn't allow me to get an ssd which would have been my first choice. Have seen these recommended as an alternative in various places and have been sceptical but gave it a shot. I have to say I'm very impressed with price vs performance, it's definitely a worthwhile stepup over even a scorpio black 7200 hdd. 12 October 2014
