After 42 boot-ups ( this is my system drive) and 652 minutes running time I have been trouble free. But after such a short time I wouldn't expect anything less.

Andy, London IT Professional

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Reliable manufacturer, reasonable price. Can't comment on the individual reliability of the product as I've only had it for a week, but the manufacturer generally makes a reliable HDD so I have no reason to suspect this model otherwise - I wouldn't have bought it if I thought it wasn't going to be reliable.
