      Comments about HGST 750GB Travelstar 2.5" SATA Mobile Hard Drive Kit:

      I purchased two of these drives to record video using the Atomos Ninja2. So far the performance has been great. I am able to eject the drive from the recorder and move it directly to the plug-n-play caddy and begin editing. Works as advertised. No complaints.

        Replaced the harddrive on a macbook pro for more storage. It's less than $10 more than the 500GB. You can't go wrong with it.
