They don't tell you it's an OEM drive
on August 15, 2013
The computer I use for work suffered a hard drive crash (backups are a good thing!), so I had to buy another computer quickly to stay in production. The computer store transferred what they could from the crashed hard drive, so I figured with a modest investment I could put a new drive in the hulk of the failed computer and get it back for the kids to use.
Somehow, I expected more than just a drive in a box (ok, it had a bit of padding) There weren't even mounting screws, so I had to beg some from the computer store. Once I had these in hand, it was quick work to install the drive, reload Windows from the original disk, and get it back in operation.
Overall rating: It's OK. It is basically a drop-in replacement for what failed. But don't expect packaging, screws, or even a lot of help from the website.
