1.0 out of 5 stars Possibly a faulty unit?, 19 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this hard drive to use in a laptop which already had a previous model of this hard disk. The new drive caused the laptop boot up times to increase significantly (roughly a third) and also caused loss of data.

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the best ereaders out there, 19 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Kindle paperwhite is one of the best ebook readers out here. It's easy and very intuitive to use, The screen is crisp, sharp and very responsive.

Still has a some issues though:

- Only 2GB of internal memory and no way to expand it via memory cards.
- Uneven light distribution can be distracting and make reading uncomfortable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works as expected, 19 Dec 2012

Bought this enclosure to house a spare blu-ray read-only drive left over after upgrading the laptop's internal unit to a blu-ray writer. Works well and feels quite sturdy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fits the mid-2012 15" MacBook Pro perfectly, 19 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This caddy fits the mid-2012 15" MacBook Pro perfectly. All the required holes to screw the caddy to the chassis are present so that the drive can be secured firmly and it is not floating around.

Would have given it 5 stars but for the lack of instructions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good upgrade if SSD is not an option, 17 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this 750GB hybrid hard drive as an upgrade for an HP DV8 laptop's primary hard drive in need of replacement.

I performed the upgrade process using Seagate's DiscWizard utility (a separate free download from Seagate's website) to clone the data from the old hard drive to the new one. The process was easy and straightforward taking some 30 minutes to clone 300GB of data.

I only encountered one problem once the new hard drive was installed and running my already existing Windows 7 installation: the update service was not working and Windows was reporting my copy of Windows not to be genuine even though activation was successful. After some digging it turns out this is a known problem that many other users have encountered and was easily remedied by installing the latest Intel Rapid Storage drivers (also a free download from Intel's website).

In use, the hard drive appears to be reasonably fast and quiet. Boot times also feel noticeably shorter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small and effective, 23 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very small and works reasonably well.
Did not need to install the drivers that came with the adaptor as Windows 7 downloaded them automatically off the web.
Have not had any trouble connecting to any wireless network so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good card, works well with 1080p camcorder, 15 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For those customers interested in compatibility, I bought this card for use with a Canon HF200 camcorder and the results to date have been good. At class 4 this 16GB Fujifilm card is fast enough to handle progressive recording at full 1080p and 24Mbps.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brief introduction to machine learning from a practical and non-mathematical perspective, 11 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is essentially a brief introduction to the topic of machine learning from a practical and non-mathematical perspective using code examples written in Python.

The intended audience for this book are developers with no background in machine learning but wanting to use machine learning techniques in their projects. Newcomers to the topic of machine learning may find the book useful but those with a background in maths or machine learning will likely find the book to have a somewhat limited appeal.
