South Wales GB
So far so good - installed 2 weeks ago, quicker boot times versus an old WD Green 5400 rpm hard drive. Would recommend if you have SATA II motherboard and want to improve performance without going to the expense of a SSD.
None so far, although slightly noisier than my old drive, you can solve this problem by turning the volume from 2 to 3 when listening to music, game play etc and you won't hear it!!

Whitley Bay GB
Very quick Sata 3 Hard Drive and compares with the lower end spec of lower speed SSD's fairly well but it is a bit slower than the higher end speed SSD's. The HD surround heatsink keeps the drive cool and running efficiently.
Fairly expensive drive for a 1TB HD but as I need a realiable system the expense is worth it for me.
