Travelstar Z5K500 is the second generation 7mm, 5400 RPM 2.5-inch hard drive from Hitachi, with capacities ranging from 250GB to 500GB, and the second generation Advanced Format drive. Advanced Format increases the physical sector size on HDDs from 512 bytes to 4,096 (4K) bytes, which improves drive capacities and error correction capabilities. The 500GB per platter, one-disk models are designed as a direct replacement for standard 9.5mm HDDs, for use in notebook PCs, external storage and gaming consoles, as well as new, thinner and more robust device designs. The Z5K500 carries the EcoTrac classification due to its low-power consumption and eco-friendly, halogen-free production. Travelstar Z5K500 delivers the right balance of capacity, power-management and design flexibility to meet the needs of mobile applications.

2 out of 5 eggsDies after a year

Pros: Somewhat fast?

Cons: I've gone through 2 of these so far, with a third on its way (Warranty is paying for them). One of the most unreliable Hard drives out there, for they die after 12 months exact whether you use it or not. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Other Thoughts: If you are buying this for an non-warranted repair, don't do it. Find a better 7mm drive.

2 out of 5 eggsDied after one year

Pros: Fast, quiet, and until now absolutely no complain about this hard disk. Had it inside the Asus Q200E we bought a little bit more than 1 year ago, brought the netbook everywhere and never had any problem with the HDD.

Cons: The disk is dead, the computer doesn't even see it anymore, there is no way to access it.
Manufacturing date on the disk is 02SEP12. It died on Sunday., January 5th, 2014. A little bit more than one year.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent Drive - Works fine

Pros: works as expected. I purchased this to replace a failed SANDISK SSD that died from hibernation/sleeping.

I had a backup image from the recent swap, so it was easy to put this in and it worked.

* Normal Laptop HDD speeds
* Normal or less heat than like drives
* No noticeable sounds when accessing drives (original drive was much louder)
* Great price when caught on sale at $70
* Good Bang for buck per GB
* Shipped in small box within Large Box

Cons: Price went back up after sale :)

Other Thoughts: If you need a drive and want space, this will work just fine.
