    Seagate ST500LM021 reviews

    500GB Laptop Thin Internal Hard Disk Drive (OEM) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a hard drive should Fast, reliable, Quiet and easy to install on my laptop. Use this drive in the field to backup photos to my laptop. I like Seagate because they have free cloning software to clone old drives (must use a Seagate drive). Warranties used to be 5 years, but now they are down to 2 yrs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Hard Drive These are replacement hard drives for laptops that previously had HGST drives in them that all failed. So far so good but haven't ran them for very long to know how they hold up. Love that the price for this slim little model is very reasonable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good upgrade for a PS3 This hard drive has more storage, and loads data noticeably faster than the standard hard drive that comes with a PS3 Slim. It's light, compact, and it's affordable (good price). It worked out as a worthwhile upgrade for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard drive is what I needed. My 7 year old laptop slowed down and stopped. This new drive is the same size but with a higher RPM. The system is running like it is new. Seagate has always served me well.
