Product description

Size Name:500GB

Product Description

Designed for optimal performance and high durability, the Toshiba MKxx61GSYN series of 7,200 RPM hard disk drives deliver 160 to 640GB* of storage capacity in the 2.5-inch form factor. The MKxx61GSYN family of Serial ATA drives offers extreme power efficiency and superior operating acoustics over 3.5-inch drives for today’s high-end notebook PCs, gaming laptops, and mobile workstations as well as Energy Star® all-in-one and slimline desktop PCs.

Toshiba couples greater power efficiency of the MKxx61GSYN drives with other environmentally-conscious solutions including RoHS-compliance and utilization of components that reduce PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and BFRs (brominated flame retardants) as well as meet halogen-free** standards.

An optional free-fall sensor responds to drop events and securely locks the recording heads in place off the media before system impact. This provides an additional level of ruggedness and durability to the MKxx61GSYN drives and is particularly suitable for mobile applications.

I bought it as a replacement HDD for my Toshiba laptop in July 2012 - It still works very well, I didn't have any issues with it and I am very happy with this purchase! :)

My 4 year plus Dell hybrid had become very slow and was taking more than 7 minutes to boot up. My son, my technical consultant, checked it out and advised replacing the hard disc with this one. It was easy to fit (Utube videos show how). Amazing difference, much faster all round and boots up in under 2 minutes now. I was considering buying a new computer now I have one for less than £50.

Disk arrived in very good time, swapped into my 2007 MacBook in no time at all and then restored my system from backup perfectly.

Now it works great, slightly quicker than my old WD Scorpio Blue 500GB drive that was 5400 rpm.

There's the problem though, when I look in my About This Mac option, the Toshiba drive is mentioned as being 5400rpm.....did I get sent the wrong one or is the MacBook failing to recognise it?

It's a good drive but I'm confused!

Bought this back in June (so now 5 months old)and it's been faultless. While this should be unremarkable, I've owned other drives that have failed within a month or two (note: most recently 2 WD Scorpio Blue drives, which I recommend avoiding).
It's also very quiet for a 7200 rpm hdd.

just installed this into the superdrive by of my late 2009 macbok pro 13" with one of the cradles available on this website, like myself, for those who are not ust to installing hard drives, in order to formatt an unformatted drive, go to disk manager, select the drive form the list on the left, and erase the drive, not the most obvious way to format a drive, and suprised there was nothing labeled "format" shame i didnt have the courage to clone the original hard drive (wich is still in the propper hdd bay) as i imagine the extra 1800rpm on the new drive would give it a far faster boot up time.

Bought this as a replacement of a western digital 320GB hdd for my MBP, because WD started to have physical errors.
Both the WD and this Toshiba are running at 7200 RPM, but Toshiba is extremely quiet, whereas WD was pretty noisy.
I could have went for a bigger size Seagate or WD hdd - 750GB or 1TB, but I wanted a reliable hard drive and Toshiba HDDs never disappointed me before.
So far I'm very pleased with this Toshiba 500GB HDD, works great.

I've ordered this hard disk to have more space for saving and rendering videos and for playing video games. I had the chance to try the previous version (5400 RPM) as I played "Dirt 3" and you really can tell the difference between the 5400 RPM version and the 7200 RPM version. Mind you, this is my experience and it might have different results for other users.

During my usage the "loading..." screen took noticeably more time at 5400 RPM than it did with this hard disk at 7200 RPM (around 3-5 seconds).

I'd recommend this hard disk if you want to have a mildly fast hard drive but you are not ready to invest in a solid state hard disk drive.
